Discussion: FBI Director: No Credible Threat To US After Paris Attacks

Discussion for article #243043

“We have some unmoored folks.”
Yeah, and about 15 of them are running for president.


Buried the lede. The story here is that the National Security State is ramping up ( no, not the sass) the “war on encryption”. Some asshole on CNN yesterday was railing on and on about how “those people in California - Silicon Valley - need to get on the ball” and help us defeat these terrorists who are GASP using encrypted apps to communicate, like the rest of the friggin world. As a “former CIA official”, it’s kind of hard to believe he hasn’t heard of the NSA, so what’s the point? Give the government the authority to now de-crypt everything. I guess they must have lots of free server space in Utah.
