Kasich: ‘Encryption Is a Major Problem, Congress Needs To Deal with This’
people that want to kill us and kill our nation use our Internet. Yes, sir. I am.
>> Thank you. Governor kasich, is shutting down any part of the Internet a good idea?
>> No. I don't think it is. I want to go back to two other issues. One is the data. We know we have to hold this data for a longer period of time. And, you know, in a lot of ways, Chris is right. What a president has to do is stake a position. We don't want to err on the side of having less. We want to err on the side of having more. That's good for our families. In addition to that, wolf, there is a big problem. It's called encryption. And the people in San Bernardino were communicating with people who the FBI had been watching but because their phone was encrypted. Because the intelligence officials could not see who they were talking to, it was lost. We have to solve the encryption problem. It is not easy. A president of the united States, again, has to bring people together. Have a position. We need to be able to penetrate these people when they are involved in these plots and these plans and we have to give the local authorities the ability to penetrate than disrupt. That's what we need to do. Encryption is a major problem
