Why would anyone trust Wickr

I’d not heard of Wickr until yesterday, when I came across FT.com’s hilarious report “US spying fuels popularity of secure messaging app Wickr (free registration required).” According to the report, Wickr is funded by Gilman Louie, former head of the CIA venture capital fund In-Q-Tel, and advised by former CIA employee and U.S. ambassador Joseph DeTrani.

So we’re supposed to believe that we can obstruct the privacy invasions of the police state by using ‘secure’ software backed by two of the state’s leading brownshirts and promoted by one of the state’s media shills? That’s chutzpah.
