I'm not defending nor attacking SELinux here.  I'm kind of indifferent.

However, there's one comment I'm going to make.  The "killers" and 
"icings on the cake" exist only in your head.  All that that FAQ is 
saying is "we made this tool, we gave it to you, end of story".  It is 
not NSA's job to audit Linux kernel for free.  Or any other piece of 
open source code.
