Turkey Finds A Way To Beat Encryption

It is sometimes frustrating to law enforcement agents in getting electronic evidence from a suspected wrong-doer when that evidence is encrypted.  There are methods of breaking the encryption, but these may outlast the lives of those involved depending on the strength of the encryption tool.  Then there is the beating-the-crap-out-of-the-suspect technique.  As President Bush famously said, and Chicago's own Mayor Daley echoes, "we don't torture."  Fair enough, as far as those statements go.  Apparently Turkey hasn't reached the same level of civility expressed by our elected officials when it comes to criminal investigations, if you believe what appears in this story.  [MG]
