    In 2008, one of the ads Hillary Clinton ran during the contest for the Democratic nomination featured an imaginary scene in which the White House phone rings at 3 a.m. with news of a foreign crisis, and asked, “Who do you want answering that phone?” It was a fairly mild jab at Barack Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience.

    The shocking and brutal attack by two terrorists on a San Bernardino County health department holiday party last year left 14 people dead, dozens wounded and countless Americans feeling more threatened than they have in years. Now, federal lawmakers are considering a bill that responds to one of the threats exposed by the San Bernardino shooters: the ability of terrorists and criminals to conceal evidence on their smartphones so effectively that even the phone manufacturer can’t decrypt it.
