"Ask the American public if they want an FBI Wiretax and they'll say 'no.' If you ask them do they want a feature on their phone that helps the FBI find their missing child they'll say, 'Yes.'" - FBI Directory Louis Freeh, on Digital Telephony, US House (Subcmte. on Telecommunications & Finance) hearing on the Digital Telephony bill, 09/13/94). [Considering that the first question is fairly accurate, and the second is a wildly misleading attempt to convert real issues into emotionally charged buzzphrases and grossly inaccurate depictions of how this technology works, Freeh's estimation of the answers is probably correct.]
