  • It's funny with this privacy issue no one has brought up the Clipper Chip

    The Clipper Chip The Clipper Chip is a cryptographic device purportedly intended to protect private communications while at the same time permitting government agents to obtain the "keys" upon presentation of what has been vaguely characterized as "legal authorization." The "keys" are held by two government "escrow agents" and would enable the government to access the encrypted private communication. While Clipper would be used to encrypt voice transmissions, a similar chip known as Capstone would be used to encrypt data. The underlying cryptographic algorithm, known as Skipjack, was developed by the National Security Agency (NSA), a super-secret military intelligence agency...

    From today's WhiteHouse press Briefing: quote: Q Scott, I have a two-part question. Apparently, no one in the White House will challenge Al Gore with now public information that he led the Clinton administration's Clipper Chip Project back in the 1990s to effectively tap every phone, fax machine and computer in the country. And my question: Isn't that worth pointing out to the American people, after he accused President Bush of breaking the law and violating the Constitution by -- MR. McCLELLAN: I think you just did. This is an administration that is forward-looking, Les. We're focused on the priorities...

    Presidential press secretary Scott McClellan today refused to acknowledge the fact that then-Vice President Al Gore led a Clinton administration program that potentially could have bugged every phone in the country, this after the Democrat hammered President Bush Monday for allowing wiretaps of suspected terrorists. The "Clipper Chip" project would have placed a chip on new phones, allowing the federal government the means to eavesdrop. "Isn't that worth pointing out to the American people, after [Gore] accused President Bush of breaking the law and violating the Constitution?" asked WND. "I think you just did," responded McClellan. "This is an administration...

    Gore Planned to Bug America Charles R. Smith Friday, Nov. 16, 2001 Secret documents show Gore rejected 'due process.' During the 2000 presidential elections, Al Gore claimed to have invented the Internet. Gore's dubious claim of techno-savvy came within days of his admission that he managed to delete all of his e-mail concerning meetings with large DNC money donors. Yet recently declassified secret documents show that Al Gore did help invent new ways to violate the privacy of every U.S. citizen using the Internet. The secret documents, obtained from the U.S. State Department through the Freedom of Information Act, show...
  • Hello, Aglore? Your Clipper Chip Is Calling

    Hello, Mr. Gore? Your Clipper Chip Is Calling “A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government”, declared an outraged Algore on Monday in regards to the liberal media and punditry driven story of President Bush ordering the NSA to “connect the dots” of terrorists and their handlers. So why the outrage over the breaking of law Algore? Certainly didn’t bother you much when your disgraced boss was undergoing impeachment for Nixonian charges. Easy cheap shot though and not the point of this article. It seems Algore’s memory on privacy and government interception...

    NEW YORK, May 7 — Newly unearthed documents, mostly letters from the CIA to Congress, lay out evidence of an intensive intelligence effort to help U.S. corporations win contracts overseas. The documents, all published during the Clinton administration, appear to confirm reports that America’s electronic eavesdropping apparatus was involved in commercial espionage.
