No, SELinux is designed properly to be bulletproof, because the NSA has *two*
charges, only one of which is spying on others.  The SELinux work is for the
charge of securing *our* systems.

The back door is elsewhere, where you'll never find it, especially if you're
busy looking at the SELinux code looking for backdoors. ;)
