My dear AMFM, the rules of the game are very clear.

If you attack civilians with bombs or guns, you are a terrorist. If you make the bombs or guns used by the terrorist, you are a respected member of the "Defence" Industry. And so it is with spyware.

NSO can, and are, using the same defence as Smith & Wesson, Remington, Glock and everyone else in this business. "We just make the tools". The odds of Uncle Sam, in particular, chastising arms manufacturers are lower than the surface temperature of your home planet.
