Schneier briefed Congress

Bruce Schneier, a well-known cryptography expert and one of the few with access to the documents leaked by Snowden, briefed six Congress representatives on Thursday.

Probably still a more honest speech than Obama’s.

ON another note, here’s a fun quote from his latest crypto-gram:

A U.S. government employee e-mailed me, asking me not to post these on my blog. The government has a weird policy that exposed secrets are still secret, and government employees without clearances are prohibited from reading the classified paragraphs. I’ve heard this before. Basically, before exposure only people with a TOP SECRET clearance could read these paragraphs. After exposure, only people without any clearance at all can read these paragraphs. No, it doesn’t make any sense.
