The Senate wants to use a secure app and nobody’s complaining? Bet it’s not as secure as you might think, then. I don’t have any evidence for this of course — it’s a matter of faith. I do not believe there is any such thing as a truly “secure” or “private” form of electronic communication. If you think about it, just about every time a secure platform has come around, it’s inevitably discovered to be full of exploitable holes, so what makes the shiny new thing any different?
