Yesterday I wrote about Clare Foges' ludicrously dishonest op-ed in the Telegraph. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal has a more sober article that describes how the terrorists really operated. Here's a nice summary by Mike Rundle
Paris attackers used real names, real IDs, and unencrypted, simple messaging to make plans. https://t.co/0ioaOMaQy2

No super-secret encryption transmitted on Play Stations just a bunch of people going about their business using their own names and documents. Most were European citizens traveling legally with their own passports. They rented the vehicles used in the attacks, again legally, using legitimate driver's licenses.
Most disturbingly, many of the terrorists were already on watch lists but were nevertheless able to operate openly without detection. Yet, somehow, this is all Snowden's and Apple's fault. Or maybe it's just that our governments are lying to us. Again.
