That's the one.

If an entangled pair of objects is shared between two parties, anyone intercepting either object alters the overall system, revealing the presence of the third party (and the amount of information they have gained).

I don't get this. How would the recipient know that what they've received is 'wrong'?

At least then its your own countries option.

I sympathise with the sentiment, but the well-now-it-just-doesn't-work-at-all problem is real. A large proportion of IT projects fail. Government IT projects are no different. (If anything I assume they're worse, but I don't have numbers.) Pursuing a low-risk route, even if it means depending on Microsoft, isn't necessarily a mistake.

Other nations do not all fail at complex math, code, design or funding.

I presume you are writing as an American. You are quite mistaken.

Other nations may try to keep 5+ other countries out of a networked product as delivered.

Isn't that true of any transmission medium?

I vaguely remember reading about the idea of encoding a bit into exactly one photon, and the possibility of using this to create a scheme where snooping could always be detected.

Annoyingly, I forget the details, and Google didn't turn up anything relevant looking.
