The FBI Finally Admits It Did Not Need Apple To Unlock Terrorist's iPhone In Power Grab

New FBI Director James Comey, U.S. President Barack Obama and former FBI Director, Robert S. Mueller
The Judiciary Report has been proven correct in its assertion the FBI lied about needing Apple to unlock the iPhone of the terrorist ringleader in the San Bernardino terrorist attack. In the March 11, 2016 article "FBI Using San Bernardino Terrorist Attack As A Power Grab At Apple" the site stated, "As the phrase goes, "Give them an inch and they will take a mile." Once the FBI gets a foothold, they will keep imposing and perversely go further each time. Furthermore, the FBI does not need Apple to unlock the phone. Others have unlocked iPhones. The FBI just wants to illegally control Apple in a bid to further spy on the masses. They are grossly overstepping their congressional mandate. It is arrogant, out of order and totalitarian in nature."

Two weeks later, on Monday, March 28, 2016, in an evening announcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and its parent agency the Department of Justice (DOJ) stated they are backing of Apple in the court case and have found an outside company to unlock the terrorist's iPhone. Yea, you do that (sarcasm). I told you guys the FBI was lying. They are a deceitful, treacherous, corrupt, lying agency, who are not to be trusted under any circumstances (they've caused innocent people's deaths, including children and separately framed innocent people New Evidence Reveals The FBI Sent Innocent People To Death Row and Man Wrongfully Imprisoned For 28-Years Due To FBI and The FBI Still Framing People For Crimes and Wives Of Men Framed By The FBI Speak).

The FBI was about to greatly damage Apple, a company that legitimately employs thousands of people and actually makes America money, unlike the Federal Bureau Of Investigation, who keeps going to Congress with its hands outstretched accompanied by concocted stories and fake cases they've created, to demand more taxpayer money to spy on Americans and international citizens, in violation of the Constitution. 

The public does not believe the FBI as evidenced by tweets on social networking site Twitter
If the power grab had gone ahead through the courts, the public would have simply associated Apple with the FBI, branding them snitches controlled by the Feds, having embedded themselves in the company's products to spy on the masses and began avoiding their products. Apple makes good products and should be free from government interference of that nature. 

Hackers are nosy. The minute tech companies put out new products, hackers do their level best to take them apart and would brag online about any backdoors they've discovered. Congress was negligent in allowing the FBI and DOJ to file the court case against Apple, trying to take over a company they weren't smart enough to build. It was pure arrogance. Revelations of widespread National Security Agency (NSA) spying is proof federal law enforcement cannot be trusted with the public's privacy.  

There is something deeply perverted with people, government or civilian, who believe they are to be secretly spying on others. There is something mentally wrong in their brains to be doing this. Psychologists have written many papers on the subject. It is perverted, mentally ill voyeurism. Government officials have been forced to admit under oath and in Congress that all this spying has not stopped even one terrorist attack. It's just an excuse to spy on people.

Select members of government are using illegal spying for undue enrichment to commit insider trading, financial theft, corporate theft, gain information of political rivals to get in office and secure lucrative jobs and in some cases spy on their significant others (an exclusive the Judiciary Report broke first).


Read Apple's response to the FBI's San Bernardino iPhone hack

From the beginning, we objected to the FBI's demand that Apple build a backdoor into the iPhone because we believed it was wrong and would set a dangerous precedent. As a result of the government's dismissal, neither of these occurred. This case should never have been brought. We will continue to help law enforcement with their investigations, as we have done all along, and we will continue to increase the security of our products as the threats and attacks on our data become more frequent and more sophisticated. 

Apple believes deeply that people in the United States and around the world deserve data protection, security and privacy. Sacrificing one for the other only puts people and countries at greater risk. This case raised issues which deserve a national conversation about our civil liberties, and our collective security and privacy. Apple remains committed to participating in that discussion.

The Fight Between Apple And The FBI Is Just Getting Started

March 30, 2016 00:19 IST - Apple isn't the only company that is aiming to install greater encryption around products. Washington: The Justice Department has called off a high-profile legal battle with Apple after it was able to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters without the company's help. But rather than resolve the fight, this latest development is likely to motivate Apple and other companies to strengthen the security of their devices even more and force the government to keep up with any new security measures, technology executives and security analysts said. 

"They're in an arms race," said Matthew Blaze, a cryptography researcher and professor at the University of Pennsylvania. "The FBI is trying to find new ways in and Apple is trying to find new ways to defend against that." Apple isn't the only company that is aiming to install greater encryption around products, which makes intrusions by hackers and government investigators alike much more difficult. 

The FBI case appears to have intensified efforts among tech companies such as Snapchat and Facebook to employ better encryption - a trend that began after Edward Snowden's revelations of government spying in 2013 and a massive wave of cyber-hacking in recent years. 

Cloud computing company Box, which filed a legal brief supporting Apple in the San Bernardino case, is one of the many tech firms rushing to offer new encryption-related security features. It recently launched a product, Keysafe, that allows corporate customers to hold on to their own encryption keys -- a move co-founder and chief executive Aaron Levie said was as much about fighting off hackers and cybercriminals as it was about fending off government surveillance. The implementation of Keysafe means the company cannot collect and hand over the private information of a customer even when the authorities have a warrant.
