I recall a debate on here about the government blocking this sale and
whether or not they really understood "open source".

SOURCEFIRE AND CHECK POINT ANNOUNCE MUTUAL WITHDRAWAL FROM THE CFIUS
PROCESS

Sourcefire to Remain the Industry's Largest and Most Innovative
Independent Intrusion Prevention Vendor 

Columbia, Md., March 23, 2006 Sourcefire, Inc., the world leader in
intrusion prevention, today announced that, with the consent of the US
government, Sourcefire and Check Point Software Technologies have opted
to withdraw their merger filing with the Committee on Foreign Investment
in the United States (CFIUS). Sourcefire will continue to operate as the
industry's largest private Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) vendor.
