As stupid as the idea of backdooring encryption is, I don't think the author gets the point Jim Comey is trying to make. He acknowledges that legislation wouldn't stop encryption, it would just make it more inconvenient for unskilled people - like a suicide bomber to implement it, and not give US companies the financial incentives to get more difficult to intercept communication devices sold to whomever wants to use them.

Like I said, it's a stupid idea, but you have to know your own biases.
