That's an oversimplifcation. C&S isn't quite as secure as C&P but that doesn't make it pointless. Further, the concerns listed in the FBI warning aren't all specific to C&S even though they do recommend C&P. I'm not sure it really matters all that much at this point since most people are still swiping anyway.

Debit cards have PIN's but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're chip & PIN if they're EMV. There are C&S debit cards but that comes into play when they're processed as credit cards and not as debit. A number of people have mentioned that they didn't even have to sign for a debit card transaction but that's because the cards were processed as credit and were chip & sig and were under the minimum transaction limit of the merchant for a signature.
