I have not been sending pgp-encrypted messages since. Goes without
asking. But why does the government not simply ask everybody not to
encrypt messages. Most people will be very cooperative.
Have they never heard off stegography? The art to encode messages in
pictures and mp3 for example.
There are so many ways to encode messages. Bin Laden is now using
communication tools from the stone-age (smoke-signals?) And it is the
most perfect encrytion possible. And it's untracable.
If they are trying to find a way to find terrorist this is not it.
Those people are very flexible.
