Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
During a previous Daily Mail hacking scare story , there was a sideways comment from a senior security service person who said that they were terrified of an increase in encryption. At the moment, there were only two types of people who used it. The crazed crypto obsessives, and the wrongdoers. So at the moment if someone was throwing encrypted messages around you could check to see if they appeared on crypto forums, and if not then you needed to watch them. However the thing that scared them was something happening like the Snowdon event. Then a large ammount would start using encryption and it would become a needle in a haystack.

So once again the subversives within mob have screwed up the actual war on terror.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
