    Second U.S. Bid to Force Apple to Unlock Phone Ends in a Whimper . . . a source came forward and provided the passcode. It appears to me that the FBI/DOJ doesn't want to get a precedent from an Appellate Court that does not support their position.

    We knew that Sen. Dianne Feinstein was cooking up a bill with North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr in response to Apple’s dispute with the FBI over the San Bernarndino iPhone.We knew that the bill was going to target companies like Apple that refused to help the government unscramble encrypted data. And we suspected, given Feinstein’s past history of being unconcerned about anyone’s privacy other than her own, that the bill was going to be pretty bad for the privacy of everyday citizens and the security of tech products.How bad? Well we now know.The bill would require companies, in response...

    The gold colored version of the new iPhone 5S is seen after Apple Inc's media event in Cupertino, California, September 10, 2013. REUTERS/Stephen Lam (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Friday said it would keep fighting to force Apple Inc to open an iPhone in a New York drug case, continuing its controversial effort to require Apple and other tech companies to help law enforcement authorities circumvent encryption. Just two weeks ago, the government dropped its effort to require Apple to crack an iPhone used by one of the shooters in the December attacks in San Bernardino, California, saying...

    The Justice Dept. was poised to launch a public relations campaign to pull at the public heartstrings of those who suffered as a result of the San Bernardino shootings. It took just a few hours for the Justice Dept. to gauge how its legal action against Apple would be perceived by the public. Not long after a California court released an order compelling Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters, there was an outpouring of support in Apple's favor, and little compassion for the government's case. FBI could demand Apple source...

    Video:Following his (grilling) of FBI Director Mueller, Rep Gohmert expanded on how training materials have been purged to appease CAIR and the warnings about the Boston bombers was ignored.Video...[snip] Mueller wasn’t even aware the Boston mosque the Tsarnaev brothers attended was (founded by Abdulrahman al-Amoudi!) “I don’t know no” or answering “no” to questions if they know seems to be the number one excuse used by all top ranking members of the 0bama regime.

    Actions to Aid Probe Appear Now As Cover-UpWASHINGTON -- One night in autumn 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the worst act of bioterrorism in its history, Bruce Ivins was alone in his cluttered Fort Detrick, Md., office, scrubbing phones, walls and furniture. ...... Dr. Ivins, his colleagues said, argued that al Qaeda was responsible. "He was very passionate about this," former boss Jeffrey Adamovicz said. "He was very agitated." In these conversations, Dr. Ivins dwelled at one point on a purported link between Florida victim Robert Stevens, a photographer for American Media, and an apartment rented to 9/11 ringleader...

    August 7, 2008 · The FBI says that, with scientist Bruce Ivins' suicide, the case against him is effectively closed. Doubts are emerging, however, as to whether he really was the 2001 anthrax killer. His handwriting does not match up and he could not have possibly done it all alone, fellow scientists say. FBI Details Case Against Anthrax SuspectThe Justice Department on Wednesday said Army microbiologist Bruce Ivins was "the only person responsible" for the deadly 2001 anthrax attacks. Justice officials unsealed 14 search warrants and affidavits, outlining a damning but still largely circumstantial case against Ivins, who committed suicide...
