Apple Bites, Part 3

Filed under: Probable Cause — Tags: — Bill @ 7:17 am

AppleCore copyOpenCdA hopes that FBI Director James Comey was intentionally misleading the House Judiciary Committee during his testimony on March 1.

According to today’s Los Angeles Times article headlined FBI isn’t the only agency that failed to unlock the San Bernardino killer’s iPhone, Director Comey implied that the FBI had sought help from other members of the US Intelligence Community to unlock the San Berdo Two‘s iPhone 5C, but other agencies had also been unsuccessful.

We hope Director Comey was being intentionally misleading; lying if necessary under oath to Congress.  We hope the Intelligence Community has, in fact, quietly and successfully been able to gain access to information stored on the iPhones.

We also hope that Apple was fully and completely involved and cooperative in the effort.  This LA Times article headlined While it defies U.S. government, Apple abides by China’s orders — and reaps big rewards explains what Apple has at stake.  With a little reading between the lines, we hope OpenCdA readers can also see what’s at stake for the United States.

It is in the best interest of our national security that the People’s Republic of China and our other enemies continue to believe that Apple’s iPhone security measures are unbreakable even by the US Intelligence Community.   It is also in our national security interest that if the security of Apple’s iPhones has been compromised, Apple is aware of it and is working to develop even more effective security.

Frankly, we hope that Apple is a 21st century skunk and that Tim Cook is another Kelly Johnson.
