Actually they dont need to force you to install a backdoor, they trick 
you into installing a back door unknowingly. So you are unaware that all 
your encrypted email is being decrypted by them.

e.g. by having two MS code signing keys, one owned by MS the other by 
the NSA.

There are many such exploits available to governments (Flame, Duqu and 
more fun from the Olympic Games come to mind)
