Chanson de Roland

That's great. Apple's on the fringe of the volcano, yet President Obama, U.S. Atty. Gen. Lynch, and Director Comey think that, if they push Apple over the edge, that it will suddenly be able to invent the ability to fly, in mid fall, and will simply fly to safety. No, if our courts order Apple to invent software that defeats the security measures of its iPhones and other iOS devices, such as iPad, that software will eventually get out in the world with the predictable consequences of subjecting us all to the threats of criminal and governmental hacking.

One of the first group to seize Apple's hack will be our own U.S. government, because I don't doubt that, as Apple transmits its hack of Mr. Farook's iPhone, the NSA or some other agency of our government will copy it and do so without informing any federal judge or Apple, trusting that it, the U.S. intelligence community, can collect wonderful intelligence for as long as it remains uncaught, and, once caught, if it is ever caught--Snowdens don’t come along everyday, you know--that it will be far better to ask for forgiveness later than it would have been to seek permission now.
