Yes, without having read the report, that's a very weird point to make.
*All* software can obviously be used by anyone - including bad actors.
As available for every purpose as free software is, it's not -
unfortunately, but let's not flatter ourselves too much - really *more*
available or abundant than proprietary software.
A general investigation into "the use of *software* by terrorists and
violent extremists" would arguably be much more interesting.
