Candid Meeting Comments (backdoor algorithms):

Stewart Baker (ex-NSA Counsel, ex-PECSENC Acting 
Chairman): "McCain's bill [S.768] is stupid, written as idiot 
proof by ignorant people who don't understand that key 
recovery is dead. (Smile.)" (Emphasis in original)

William Reinsch, Undersecretary of the Bureau of Export 
Administration: "The Senate doesn't get it, what we want 
them to do, the House does. (Smile.)"
