Stutnex used zero day flaws so when they make a statement like:

"When Federal agencies discover a new vulnerability in commercial and open source software ... it is in the national interest to responsibly disclose the vulnerability rather than to hold it for an investigative or intelligence purpose."[1]

I have to scratch my head because I can't reconcile this. I also can't reconcile what meaningful impact the White House statement will have since it has such a vague loophole. The White House statement reminds me of when Putin plays lip service to democratic processes inside Russia. Lots of words, little if any meaning or change.
