Watch Now

One man whistleblower against the flouted power of president, bureaucracy and their goons who object to citizen interference with their Peeping Tom proclivities in the cause of fighting ISIS whose noles they can’t catch either

Some people believe the recent dispute between the FBI and Apple over a locked iPhone marks the return of what privacy advocates called the”crypto wars” of the 1990s, when federal authorities tried and failed to mandate government access to most forms of electronic communication. Although the FBI managed to decrypt the iPhone at issue without the company’s help, Apple and others are racing to build devices and messaging services that no one but their owners can unlock. The legal question remains unresolved in Congress, where competing bills have been introduced, and in dozens of cases pending in state and federal courts.

Featuring: Edward Snowden (via live video link), Fareed Zakaria, Host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, Author, and Journalist

Moderated by: Barton Gellman, Author, Journalist, The Century Foundation Senior Fellow

Law enforcement agencies believe their vital mission requires compulsory access, under valid court order, to any device or communications stream. Leading technology companies (backed by some other U.S. government voices) say they cannot meet law enforcement demands without undermining customer security and privacy against hackers and foreign adversaries. Edward Snowden and Fareed Zakaria disagree on which course better serves society at large. Should companies be required to break into their own encrypted products, and should they be allowed to sell encryption that no one can break? Learn more.
