Draft legislation, proposed only just days abo (19-Sep) seeks to deny
Americans the right to privacy by mandating government backdoors in all
encryption products.  This right on the heels of 13-Sep's "Combating
Terrorism Act" which proposes similar injunctions on the freedom and
liberties of American citizens and was rushed through with less than 30
minutes of consideration on the senate floor.

The ATA/MATA draft bill is expected to go to vote as early as this week.
If you're in the united stats, this bill can and will have serious impact
on your privacy.  Please consider contacting your representatives and
those on the senate committee considering the bill to voice your concern
for this erosion of privacy in the dubious name of combating terrorism.

The EFF has an excellent summary of the situation with pointers to the
relevant facts and elected officials.  Even something as simple as one
email to the senate subcommit te can make a difference.

The events of 11-Sep are horrific to us all, but we can't expect to defeat
an attack on freedom by destroying those freedoms ourselves.

Please consider adding your voice to the debate before it's too late.
