It is still our hope that [Apple] will see their way clear to complying with that order as thousands of other companies do every day.
Say what? Thousands of companies complying with “that order” everyday? I would like to see some examples because I have no clue you’re talking about Ms. Lynch. No company, in the entire history of the United States, has ever been ordered to create a hackable version of a operating system for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
If this was the kind of order that “thousands of other companies” are complying with “every day,” Apple wouldn’t be in the position of calling this “unprecedented.”
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
The Director of the FBI James Comey probably wouldn’t be conceding that this would set a precedent either.
The San Bernardino litigation isn’t about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of message.
The outcome “will be instructive for other courts”, Comey told the House intelligence committee.
“I don’t know how lawyers and judges will think about what is the limiting principle on the legal side.”
Shame on you Ms. Lynch. You’re deliberately spreading misinformation and I honestly can’t give you the benefit of the doubt that you were misinformed because you’re the Attorney General of the United States of America.
