The first paragraph sounds great. Then they go on to say that law enforcement should always have a backdoor.

This basically says strong encryption can be used for child porn so strong encryption shouldn’t be available.

It's an unexpected and truly egalitarian move. Building back doors into safety-critical systems for everyone to exploit and use!.

It just reads like they want to redefine 'strong encryption', claim victory in the debate, and ignore all the privacy and security concerns.
