Edward Snowden disputes FBI’s inability to unlock iPhone in San Bernardino case

During a up to date communicate on surveillance, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden referred to as the FBI's claimed inability to get entry to the iPhone of one of the crucial the San Bernardino shooters with out Apple's lend a hand into query. According to The Intercept, Snowden rejected outright that the FBI didn't posses the approach to holiday into the shooter's telephone.

"The FBI says Apple has the 'unique technical method'" to unlock the telephone, Snowden stated throughout a dialogue at Common Cause's Blueprint for Democracy convention.

"Respectfully, that is bullsh*t," he stated, over a video hyperlink from Moscow.

Snowden, sadly, wasn't in a position to tricky on his reaction right through the debate. However, he later took to Twitter with an evidence, linking to a posting from the ACLU, which main points why the FBI's declare that it can not holiday into the iPhone is incorrect.

This isn't the primary time that any person has wondered whether or not the FBI in fact wishes Apple's help unlocking the iPhone on the middle of this case. Indeed, it kind of feels increasingly likely that the FBI may use this case as a precedent while making equivalent requests of Apple down the road.
