Opponents of offshoring proffer new arguments

With the fear-mongering over job losses managing to just get the attention of a few local politicians and state governments, the anti-outsourcing lobby in the US is now coming up with other arguments against outsourcing. Arguments that they hope will cause some "FUD" (fear, uncertainity and doubt) in the minds of US corporate executives.

Some of these new argument have appeared in the form of articles in Businessweek (which claims the poor quality of software developed offshore actually makes it costly) and the San Francisco Chronicle (which worry over the threats to data privacy due to offshore outsourcing).
