“Computer programming expert John McAfee has said the FBI would have to put a gun to the heads of all Apple programmers to get what they say they want, and that anyone who understands the issue stands with Apple, in an exclusive interview,” RT reports. “‘There is no question that what the FBI has asked Apple to do is create a backdoor,”‘ McAfee said to RT America’s Ed Schultz. He disputed the bureau’s argument that only one phone used by one of the San Bernardino mass shooters would be affected… ‘The very FBI,’ McAfee charged, ‘who says, ‘we will protect this software and only use it on one phone,’ that agency was hacked by a 15-year-old boy just last week, who walked off with all the personnel records including, [of] undercover agents.'”

Those who wrongheadedly agree with these disingenuous government hacks need to realize that they are working to deliver exactly what the terrorists wanted to achieve with their murderous rampage. Aiding the murderous jihadists isn’t a proper way to memorialize stricken terrorist victims.
