“To me, the most frustrating thing is when people treat privacy and security as if they are trade-offs.”
The privacy conversation is alive and well. Hearing from someone whose responsibility was protecting US Borders and walking a fine line between protection and civil rights provides a clear perspective of the issues.
Yes, we were blindsided in the US when the 911 attack occurred. But blaming that event on loose borders and immigration policy or restrictive telecommunications laws would be ludicrous.
We continue to struggle with the means for protecting the freedom and privacy of honest citizens and guarding our borders. And the conversation WILL continue.
