FPR Blog 72: So, There's More Than One Phone the FBI Wants to Crack.

I only had one question as soon as I heard that the FBI couldn’t decrypt an iPhone. What the hell does our tax money go to? 


This isn’t just the FBI, these are multiple agencies pulling their resources together.



This was a horrific act and it seems like an honest breach of privacy to find out what’s on their phone.



I know they can get a lot of important information off a phone, but the horrifying crime happened and they couldn’t stop it.


Isn’t that the reason for spying on our own citizens? Wasn’t that the justification of the NSA spy program?


So now because the most brilliant minds in criminal defense can’t crack a cell phone they expect the maker to do it for them. Makes me happier to be an iPhone user.


Apple shouldn’t allow for the government to have a back door for when these horrific things happen. They don’t want the back door to prevent crimes they want it for “investigations and information collection” after a crime is committed.


Are you shitting me right now..?


Apple shouldn’t have to breach their contracts and customer’s trust for any reason. 


Of course, if it can stop an attack I may feel different. But, the minute I heard this was an issue I knew it was more than just one phone.



Edward Snowden has some information that adds a little validity to my theory.





Anyway here goes. Some text and the link…


Edward Snowden Helped Expose the Real Reason the FBI Wants a Backdoor into the iPhone



Whistleblower Edward Snowden tweeted last week that “crucial details [of the case] are being obscured by officials.” Specifically, he made the following trenchant points:


This is from his twitter.


Journalists: Crucial details in the @FBI v. #Apple case are being obscured by officials. Skepticism here is fair:







This is just the start when it comes to the telecommunications privacy battles and laws.

Thanks for reading and please share the information. The more people that know the more power we have...


Spread the word, expose the truth, it's never too late.
