With one sentence, Tim Cook rocks the foundation upon which this country was founded

 

In an email sent to Apple employees this morning, Tim Cook informed Apple team members that instead of complying with FBI demands to create a backdoor into the iPhone of dead terrorist Sayed Farooq which would cause a breach in iOS security and expose countless iPhone users to unreasonable risk, the Apple CEO would instead urge Congress to form a commission discuss the implications for law enforcement, national security, privacy and personal freedoms.

 

 

Apple is a uniquely American company. It does not feel right to be on the opposite side of the government in a case centering on the freedoms and the liberties that government is meant to protect.


From an outsiders perspective I would tend to agree. This can’t be an easy position to take.

 

 

I am proud of Cook, and at the same time saddened by the position of our government.
