Bush calls for broader government surveillance

Friday, August 21, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags:

(Worthy News) - Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Wednesday said he favors broader government surveillance of Americans, calling for private tech firms to cooperate better with federal agencies to 'make sure that evildoers aren't in our midst.'

'There's a place to find common ground between personal civil liberties and [the National Security Agency] doing its job,' the former Florida governor said. 'I think the balance has actually gone the wrong way.'

At a national security forum in South Carolina on Tuesday, the presidential hopeful addressed the ongoing battle between Silicon Valley and the Obama administration over whether law enforcement officials should have guaranteed access to encrypted customer data at major tech firms.

Bush said encryption 'makes it harder for the American government to do its job' and called for 'a new arrangement with Silicon Valley' to address what he termed as a 'dangerous situation.' [ Source ]
