Reality Disconnect

Feds, Silicon Valley headed for ‘collision’ over encryption issue, post San Bernardino, wave of terror attacks
The competing goals of protecting Americans’ emails and other private electronic messages and helping the U.S. intelligence community decode them to foil terror plots are on a “collision” course, the Obama administration acknowledges.

Not ‘competing’. Diametrically opposed.

But why do we need to sacrifice electronic security for… security unlimited snooping in violation of constitutionally guaranteed rights?

Comey said at least one of the two shooters at the anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Texas in May had exchanged 109 encrypted electronic messages with “an overseas terrorist.”

Oh. Right. The guys who were stopped before they accomplished anything. By good guys with guns. Despite that nasty ol’encryption. On the other hand, the Feebs say the San Berdoo terrorists were sending unencrypted F******k messages, and they weren’t able to stop them.

I don’t think the privacy of us honest folk is ther problem.
