FBI defends handling of Apple case after retreat

FBI Director James Comey speaks during a press conference at the Department of Justice on March 24, 2016 in Washington, DCThe FBI Thursday defended the handling of its legal battle with Apple over encryption following an abrupt retreat from its bid to force the tech giant to help unlock an attacker’s iPhone. FBI director James Comey said his agency only decided to back down from its efforts after it found an outside party that appeared to have the ability to extract data from the handset without Apple’s help. Comey made the comments in a statement, which was also posted as a letter to the Wall Street Journal, responding to an editorial critical of the government’s handling of the investigation into an iPhone used by one of the shooters in last year’s deadly attacks in San Bernardino, California.
