Dumb, Delusional Senate Encryption Bill. Or Clever.

TIL: It was CALEA that authorized the abortive Clipper Chip. It passed the Senate on a voice vote so I can only infer Feinstein’s direct support. Other docs I read from the pre-9/11 era show her as “anti-privacy” and in favor, for example, of prohibiting internet access to unwanted information, the First Amendment be damned.
