Proof The FBI Is Lying In Its Case Against Apple


In case you missed it, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is currently engaged in a major legal battle with tech giant Apple over its encryption technology.

We wrote about the case here … and again here.

According to the government, it has a narrow objective: It wants to obtain access to the iPhone 5C used by San Bernardino, California domestic terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook.

“We don’t want to break anyone’s encryption,” FBI director James Comey said last week.

Apple contends the opposite. Its attorneys claim the FBI is seeking a “master key” that would enable the government to bypass encryption on all iPhones, iPods and iPads.

So … who is telling the truth?

Let’s consult the FBI’s court filing …

Word on the political beat is the FBI, in fact, wants to break into nine phones, not just the San Bernadino phone. This is a slippery slope. Encryption and key are one in the same. This also is demonstrative of just how gutted the intelligence community has suffered under the Obama Administration. Most alarming considering the ever-present threat of terrorist groups. Inform yourselves before choosing a side in this matter because privacy is dwindling with ever passing day. Isn't it enough our pictures are taken everyday, all day long?

There can't be enough "evidence" on that dead man's iphone to amount to a hill of beans, anyway. Sure, there might be some contacts on there that may help catch another snackbar lover, but isn't that what that giant data storage building in Utah and the governments massive surveillance program is for? Why don't they just go there and look up all his conversations?

Because they want access to ALL iphones!

You all wanted it, so you got it, so why are you people complaining?

Remember you wanted security for safety, and now you got nothing...
