I suggest that you see
<address@hidden> if you have trouble
taking things at face value.  I'll quote it for you:

| But not _adding_ those insecuritites, 90% of POSIX is damn good, and
| has nothing to do with security, and is merly a API for writting
| portable programs.  The remaining 10% have to do with some bits of
| security, uid's and file permissions.  These bits can be _ignored_ and
| something different implemented on instead.  Just like not
| implementing chroot(), and using something different that is secure.
| But you knew that and had to start a flame instead, and make absurd
| claims that all of POSIX is inherently insecure, when in reality it
| the majority of POSIX is totally irrelevant to implementing a secure
| operating system.
