Speaking with the Wall Street Journal's associate editor John Bussey, former director of the NSA and ex-chief of the CIA Michael Hayden called the FBI demands "wrong".

"We should allow encryption because - I can win this argument in the narrowly defined security route," Hayden said. "America is simply more secure with unbreakable, end to end encryption."

He then says that "no encryption is unbreakable" - that it simply "takes more computing power".
