Just about everyone with a large enough US office was asked by DHS, in a
public statement...

Isnt there a difference between "we have been asked" and "we have been
ordered to"?

I suppose there is, but DHS's request (order/asking whatever) was NOT in
the form of a court order... its:

(ouch, how about: http://tinyurl.com/li0i )

and/or

Neither is really an 'order' so much as a 'suggestion'.. either way, its
kind of inappropriate to make this suggestion without knowing how each
operator can or could apply a fix... that is my opinion atleast.
