The FBI seems to think that a backdoor in an encrypted device can be
created for the use of law enforcement only. It can't seem to get its
head around the fact that the Russians and Chinese have law enforcement
as well. The NSA has learned the lesson.
Every time there is a mass murder of its citizens and an Apple phone is
involved, they want Apple to break into it for them, because it costs an
awful lot of money and time to get someone else to do it for them. Why
don't they just stop bleating about it...and learn to do it for
themselves...be a lot cheaper...and less intrusive on the individual
U.S. citizen and their right to privacy...if they have got any practical
I notice that it hasn't been campaigning to get machine guns and
automatics banned though, or the vetting of people getting access to
them who are insane...might help to stop the mass murders happening in
the first place. Still, that is the politics of freedom for you...I
wonder what the situation would have been like if the gunnutter had been
from the Caliphate?
