Hillary Clinton wants “Manhattan-like project” to break encryption

“Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has called for a ‘Manhattan-like project’ to help law enforcement break into encrypted communications. This is in reference to the Manhattan Project, the top-secret concentrated research effort which resulted in the US developing nuclear weapons during World War II. Though Clinton said she has ‘confidence in our tech experts’ to solve this problem, she has continued pushing for weakening encryption despite warnings from Apple,Google, Microsoft, and other tech companies that putting encryption back doors into their products would weaken data security for everyone.”
