For more than half a century, governments all over the world trusted a single company to keep the communications of their spies, soldiers and diplomats secret.

The company, Crypto AG, got its first break with a contract to build code-making machines for U.S. troops during World War II. Flush with cash, it became a dominant maker of encryption devices for decades, navigating waves of technology from mechanical gears to electronic circuits and, finally, silicon chips and software.

The Swiss firm made millions of dollars selling equipment to more than 120 countries well into the 21st century. Its clients included Iran, military juntas in Latin America, nuclear rivals India and Pakistan, and even the Vatican.

But what none of its customers ever knew was that Crypto AG was secretly owned by the CIA in a highly classified partnership with West German intelligence. These spy agencies rigged the company’s devices so they could easily break the codes that countries used to send encrypted messages.

I may be missing your point.
Isn't it the job of every intelligence agency to spy to collect information?

Exactly, CIA was doing its job with assistance from NSA. US Government is now condemning MSS (Ministry of State Security, China) for "allegedly" using Huawei for espionage, to civilians it may be double standards but this is exactly how state organisations operate.

MI6 perform espionage to protect the interests of Britain.

Mossad perform espionage to protect the interests of Israel.

RAW perform espionage to protect the interests of India.

ISI/IB perform espionage to protect the interests of Pakistan.

Each use dirty tactics and highlight it when rivals use it and label it "unethical", that's the way it goes.
