Encrypted iPhone Data: Apple vs FBI – Public Relations Charade?

encrypted iphone data

Access to encrypted iPhone data is the basis of the current Apple vs FBI legal battle. But are we been told the full truth? Is this just public relations?

Encrypted iPhone data – and access to it –

is the basis of the current Apple vs FBI legal and technological battle. The United States FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) has sent Apple Inc., maker of the iPhone (and the iOS software that goes with it), an order to help them access the data on it. The FBI seized the iPhone of a suspect in the San Bernardino mass shooting (another false flag event), but they claim they are unable to access the encrypted content on it. They further state that Apple, and Apple alone, has the exclusive technical means to unlock the encrypted iPhone data in this situation, and so now, they are ordering Apple to do so. Edward Snowden has called this “the most important tech case in a decade.” However, something smells fishy about this story …

FBI Claims It Can’t Hack into Encrypted iPhone Data of San Bernardino Suspect

First of all, here is some of the text from the legal order:

“Despite both a warrant authorizing the search and the phone owner’s consent, the government has been unable to complete the search because it cannot access the iPhone’s encrypted content. Apple has the exclusive technical means which would assist the government in completing its search, but it has declined to provide that assistance voluntarily. Accordingly, the government respectfully requests that this Court issue an order compelling Apple to assist in enabling the search commanded by the warrant.”

Whenever you read a story on the Mainstream Media, you have to run it through your own truth filters to see if it adds up. In this case, here are a number of questions about the case:

1. Why would we assume that Apple is doing this for principled reasons? At the every least, they would be doing it as a business move to become a “key market differentiator” by trying to set themselves apart from other tech companies as a company that really cares about consumer privacy. However, did you know that Apple has unlocked encrypted iPhone data for the Feds 70 times in the past?

2. How do we know for sure that the FBI can’t already hack into encrypted iPhone data? We are told that end-to-end encryption is currently unbreakable by intelligence agencies like the FBI, CIA and NSA. But who’s to say they haven’t already worked out how to do it, and are keeping it secret?

3. Could this be a big public relations charade on both sides – Apple to pretend it really cares about consumer privacy, and the FBI to put on a show that it can’t hack end-to-end encryption and encrypted iPhone data, when it really can?

The NSA are hackers extraordinaire, with a massive budget, raw computing power and the best and brightest mathematical minds. Are we to believe that can’t hack encrypted iPhone data?

4. If the NSA can’t already hack encrypted iPhone data (even with the new iOS 9 which was released on September 16, 2015), then why did Michael Hayden, former director of both the NSA (1999-2005) and CIA (2006-2009), state in this interview that the intelligence agencies essentially figured out a way?

“(In the mid-1990s) we then began the greatest 15 years in the history of electronic surveillance. It didn’t matter – we figured out ways to get around the ‘unbreakable encryption’ … number one, no encryption is unbreakable, it just takes more computing power, and number two … we developed … bulk collection and metadata.”

5. Highly respected researcher and patriot Bill Cooper (who was murdered in November 2001, after predicting 9/11 before it happened on radio) stated emphatically on several occasions that the NSA was completely above the law, and exempt from ANY law unless that law specifically stated in its wording that it applied to the NSA. If this is true, how credible are any claims made by any NSA figures, past or present?

6. Is the FBI only doing this to try to make something legal that they can already do, so there will be legal precedent in future and less roadblocks to their ubiquitous surveillance?

7. Finally, let us remember that San Bernardino was a blatant false flag event, another in a long string of false flag shootings and bombings that have taken place in the US. We already know the Government was behind this, not some Muslim patsies. Is the FBI using this case to gain more sympathy for its cause, playing on Islamophobia and the American public’s gullibility, hoping people will cry out for the FBI to “make it safe” and give up their rights, liberties and privacy in the process?

    Well that was my first thought. Like Apple suddenly is noble. Keep in mind what their logo represents.

    Ever heard of the term “controlled opposition”? Apple Computer is the latest example of it. The illusion continues to unfold.

    The shooting of 13 people in San Bernadino by two radicalized Muslims was a false flag event.Wrong. Your thinking is skewed too far to the left. However posting that they cannot break the encryption on the cell phone can be conspiratorial. It allows these radicalized Muslims to continue using the apple phone and the FBI and others have access to their information

    What continues to evade my sensiblities, is how can humans engage in such overt and covert deliberate deceptions?
    Don’t their consciences bother them at night? Can they all be psychopaths? Are not some involved in these endeavors capable of a human responses? Perhaps the employees are highly screened for even having a conscience. Or perhaps in their minds, they justify being involved in deception because they feel they are protecting their territories? If people are deeply programmed, it is easy to slip into an agenda.It has always been an enigma to me though, how people can justify massive lies and deliberate deceptions. To them the ends justify the means, like Machiavelli said. It is a spiritual endeavor to be aware and not become hardened over such behaviors.

    If memory serves me I believe Apple was in bed with Google, Microsoft and other tech giants in the PRISM operation. So I completely agree that something nefarious is afoot.
