The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation's efforts to compel Apple to unlock an iPhone used by one of the slain San Bernardino terrorists could threaten national security, charged Craig Federighi, Apple's SVP of engineering, in an op-ed piece published Monday. Terrorists and criminals could launch attacks on vital infrastructure through access "to just one person's smartphone" and cryptographic protections on smartphones are "a critical line of defense," he maintained.

When you look at companies like Amazon pulling encryption from Fire tablet's because Amazon says nobody used it. I guess I wonder if this is more a principal thing then anybody actually worrying about something they don't use? I totally agree that Apple defense is legitimate but also brings an acceptance that you also help the bad guys. What criminal would not want a defense like privacy used in their favor? We all enjoy our privacy and yet we don't want to help the terrorists stay dark and not know what they are doing. I am not sure you can have it both ways.
