Fiery Peters: CEO Is Telling Bad Guys Around the World, 'Apple's Got Your Back'
On "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) had some strong words for Apple and the company's CEO, Tim Cook, for refusing to cooperate with the FBI's investigation of the San Bernardino terror attack.
Peters said that Apple has no problem capitalizing on U.S. laws and tax codes to help their bottom line, but now they don't want to follow the law and help investigators access an iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino terrorists.
"Apple should worry less about the dangers posed by having a backdoor to encryption and worry a lot more about the dangers posed by putting unbreakable encryption capabilities in the hands of terrorists and criminals and child molesters," Peters said.
He added that nowhere in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights is it written that criminals or terrorists have a right to privacy in their communications.
"[Cook] is telling thugs and terrorists and criminals and rapists around the world, 'Hey, buy an iPhone! Apple's got your back.'"
