What about having requirements for backdoors into technology? That is happening.

As far as expense, it doesn't matter. You've seen the Utah NSA data center, no? The Ed Snowden/NSA story states that it is blank surveillance.
Intercepting and hand modifying every piece of computing technology shipped even from just Dell is a silly claim. It would be monumentally expensive to do and impossible to hide. And laughably pointless.

Makes sense for a targeted purpose, but not as a general practice. Much easier to just force manufacturers to build in monitoring equipment and/or compromise the quality of security products.

Now, if you knew [insert specific target here] was going to order a sweet new rig from [insert maker here]? Sure, I could see that happening.
