The FBI paid professional hackers to unlock the suspected San Bernardino shooter's iPhone after a months-long unsuccessful attempt to force Apple to create decryption software, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
The FBI and CIA operate with impunity...always have, always will as they embody the term 'shadow government.' Has either ever been taken to task by DoJ, Congress or any other federal oversight organization for their clandestine, covert, and even criminal activities: NO?! Besides, they and the behemoth Homeland Security (NSA included) created by the GWB cabal have unlimited funds at their disposal to conduct their bogeyman business.
Seatower, does it seem suspicious (or odd) to you that amongst all the IT people at NSA, CIA, FBI, or any one of the other alphabet agencies that there weren't internal resources who could have cracked this code?
