Former CIA Director James Woolsey, who served in the office from 1993 to 1995, has weighed in on the ongoing iPhone encryption case between the FBI and Apple, just the latest in a series of former intelligence officials to do so. In an interview with CNBC's Squawk Box Woolsey didn't explicitly state that he was siding with Apple, though he said that the company was on the right side of this issue in general. He also accused the FBI of attempting to dictate the kind of operating system that Apple should create.
You can see CNBC's interview below:
Woolsey is the latest former U.S. intelligence chief to speak out on the matter. Michael Hayden, previously the director of the NSA, spoke on the matter last month, saying that software back doors would harm American security. Both men seem to feel that if the FBI is successful in its efforts to get Apple to help unlock the phone of the San Bernardino shooter, then it would set a precedent in which Apple would be compelled to provide such aid again and again.
