Moments ago, the Permanent Committee on Intelligence launched a hearing on the topic of “World Wide Threats”, whose unstated focus is whether Apple’s encryption makes these threats worse.

While AAPL employees are not present, yet, among those testifying will be Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey, Deputy Director of the National Security Agency Richard Ledgett, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Lieutenant General Vincent Stewart, and Director of the National Counterterrorism Center Nicholas Rasmussen.

In other words, the “who’s who” of everyone who wants to break into your iPhone. The opening statement can be found here.

Sadly, Edward Snowden is absent.

Here are some of the already noted highlights:

FBI DIRECTOR COMEY SAYS APPLE DISPUTE COULD IMPACT OTHER CASES
COMEY SAYS HE WANTS TO KEEP FBI OUT OF POLICY MAKING ON DISPUTE
COMEY SAYS FBI IS USING ALL LAWFUL TOOLS TO INVESTIGATE CASE
COMEY: NEED ROBUST NATIONAL DISCUSSION ON ISSUES IN APPLE CASE
COMEY: APPLE CONFLICT `HARDEST QUESTION I HAVE SEEN IN GOVT’
COMEY SAYS APPLE HAS BEEN COOPERATIVE, HELPFUL
