That's funny.

Regardless, my suggestion not to use SELinux has nothing to do with the 
NSA. It's because SELinux is the wrong tool most of the time. If you 
don't need multi-level access control then AppArmor offers at least as 
good protection as the SELinux targeted policy (which was designed to 
emulate AppArmor's functionality) in a more easily managed form.
