Yeah, it's always about child pornography, drug cartels, and terrorism. Regardless of how little evidence there is that encryption backdoors would help any in any of those areas.
I'm a little concerned, this time around. Politicos seem to be completely immune to the facts, so "what part of 'backdoors make an algorithm weak' do you not understand" doesn't work. (The complete and utter failure of the Clipper Chip doesn't even seem to have caused any embarrassment, let alone lessons learned.) Last time out, American businesses finally stopped the calls for weak crypto by noting that, if American businesses couldn't sell strong crypto, other countries would, and it would just cripple business. This time around, big tech companies seem to be in bad odor, so their arguments are likely to be disregarded.
