Yes.I kind of get it, but at the same time, expecting a government to do everything itself is also not really feasible. Do you really expect the government to create its own intranet services, email system, email software, email server software, etc...?
The idea that a government organization that should be holding an evil megacorp like Google to account could be using their services is I N S A N E. Whatever one says about the EU, a lot of the support that EU bodies have provided for open sores software is in reaction to that sort of problem. Whether it's by directly employing people to create software, or providing grants to others to do so, critical infrastructure needs to be secured against hostile outside actors, and all of these 'FAANG' companies are at least as hostile towards the American people as any foreign government is.
Now.. it is true that the likes of Google, Facebook, etc aren't as hostile to the American structure of government as they are to the American people... but that only shows that they've captured the American structure of government, and that corrections need to be made.
