Jack Straw (UK Foreign Secretary, formerly Home Secretary) was
interviewed on BBC Radio's Today. Commentary from ITsecurity.com:
"These comments from the UK?s Foreign Secretary Jack Straw (formerly
the Home Secretary) would be comic if they were not so scary. The
extent to which they mislead is breathtaking and frightening...
"...I would like to challenge Mr Straw to present evidence that these,
or indeed, any terrorists have ever used encryption that could have
been unencrypted via government's proposed legislation. The idea that
people with no concept of the sanctity of life would obey UK laws on
encryption beggars belief.
"This is sheer and crass misrepresentation of history. From one of the
most powerful politicians in the UK."
