Hushmail, a longtime provider of encrypted web-based email, markets itself by saying that "not even a Hushmail employee with access to our servers can read your encrypted e-mail, since each message is uniquely encoded before it leaves your computer."Can we all say,
But it turns out that statement seems not to apply to individuals targeted by government agencies that are able to convince a Canadian court to serve a court order on the company.
A September court document (.pdf) from a federal prosecution of alleged steroid dealers reveals the Canadian company turned over 12 CDs worth of e-mails from three Hushmail accounts, following a court order obtained through a mutual assistance treaty between the U.S. and Canada. The charging document alleges that many Chinese wholesale steroid chemical providers, underground laboratories and steroid retailers do business over Hushmail.

But yes, that might complicate the comedy of the Koinkidenk that the Kanadianists are going after email encryption web services, rather than Steganography that could be used by persons engaged in such evil things as failing to actively support BushCheney2008 as they Attack the Shopocalypse!!!
But let us be reasonable folks....
Why should anyone doubt that the Great NannyState mostly has your interests at heart, as long as the Great NannyState understands that you are totally Loyal to the Great NannyState and that You WILL be voting BushCheney2008, rather than stab our troops in the back as some unamericanist clique who oppose Tax Cuts.
Besides, americans should be able to buy as much of their freedom as they can afford.
So say it with me, say it loud and say it proud
