Honorable Sheri Pym:
Central District of California 3
470 12th Street Riverside, CA 92501
Dear Honorable Judge Sheri Pym:
I am writing
you concerning the current case No. 5:16-cm-00010-SP:
IN THE MATTER OF THE SEARCH OF AN APPLE IPHONE SEIZED DURING THE EXECUTION OF A SEARCH WARRANT ON A BLACK LEXUS IS300, CALIFORNIA LICENSE PLATE 35KGD203.
I am an expert on terrorism, border security, and politics. I have followed the case in question, and more importantly cases that mirror the case No. 5:16-cm-00010-SP. The cases that mirror the case at hand are:
-The Ft. Hood shooting executed by Nidal Malik Hasan on 5 November 2009
-The Boston Marathon bombing executed by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev on 15 April 2013
-The September 11, 2001
attacks on the World Trade Center led by Mohamed Atta
-The Nada Nadim Prouty, née Al-Aouar Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) spy-mole case
In each of these cases, authorities, including the FBI were warned of imminent attacks, or/and the FBI vetted/investigated the attacker/spy or failed to properly investigate these individuals despite repeated warnings
concerning all of the named. This same modus operandi is true of the San Bernardino terrorist attack executed by Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook 2 December 2015. Directly put your Honor, authorities were warned of imminent attacks
in the Spring and Summer of 2015. The attacks described are exactly the attacks carried out in San Bernardino, and Paris, France 13 November 2015.
Those warned included:
-New York Police Commissioner William Bratton
-The Police union of New York City
-High ranking Police Commanders in Los Angeles, Detroit, Las Vegas, Miami, and Chicago
-A high ranking European Union negotiator, refugee, Constitutional, and security expert
The State Department, a General involved in intelligence and national security, the Homeland Security Committees in the House and Senate were also warned imminent attacks. In each case the authorities and entities named, chose to take no action to prevent
This unfortunately this is the norm, and not the exception when it comes to the FBI, CIA, or other security and intelligence agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or the Department of Justice (DOJ)
and basic physical security. Basic physical security does not exist within the American security and intelligence apparatus and this irrefutable fact is THE cause and the root cause of current case before this court. The FBI/DOJ and other security
and intelligence agencies doing the equivalent of a bank corporation that follows the policy of their banking branches having not only no locks, but having no doors and blaming their alarm company for the certain and numerous robberies that occur at these
branches. The lack of doors, including the lack of a vault door is the cause of the robberies, not the alarm company or its security system. T
The FBI/DOJ, State Department, CIA, DHS, all had the responsibility to properly
vett, investigate, and if necessary physically stop Tashfeen Malik and Sayed Farook from entering the United States of America, not Apple. As with the other cases mentioned, there were numerous of warning signs and blatant indications that Ms. Malik and Mr.
Farook were involved in terrorism. If the DOJ/FBI are allowed to "pass the buck" down to Apple, it guarantees more and more disastrous terrorists attacks of the nature of San Bernardino. Apple can not be the doomsday fall guy for American
national security and intelligence entities. As the evidence in the case at hand demonstrates, there were dozens if not hundreds of opportunities to interrupt or stop the San Bernardino attack that could have and should have been taken advantage of.
There is a lack of professionalism, competence, and leadership that is at the core of the successful terrorist attacks that have been executed on American soil. The pattern is obvious and chronic.
In addition to the lack of competent
leadership and working model for DHS and the DOJ in regards to national security, the case in question concerning the FBI and Apple also reeks of a politically motivated witch hunt. The pursuit of Apple is brings the following into question:
would the DOJ/FBI pursue Apple so publicly?
-Based on the statements of former National Security Agency (NSA) Director Michael Hayden regarding the NSA's capabilities,former Obama administration top military intelligence chief Michael Flynn, and
the top NATO commander US Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, how could the current FBI actions against Apple not be politically motivated?
Michael Hayden has an interesting story to tell about the iPhone. He and his wife were in an Apple store in Virginia, Hayden, the former head of the United States National Security Agency (NSA), said at a conference
in Washington recently. A salesman approached and raved about the iPhone, saying that there were already "400,000 apps" for the device. Hayden, amused, turned to his wife and quietly asked: "This kid doesn't know who I am, does he? Four-hundred-thousand
apps means 400,000 possibilities for attacks." (Der Spiegel 9 September 2013)
2) President Barack
Obama's former top military intelligence official said Tuesday that the White House ignored reports prefacing the rise of ISIS in
2011 and 2012 because they did not fit its re-election "narrative."
"I think that they did not meet a narrative the White House needed. And I'll be very candid with you, they just didn't," retired Lt. Gen. Michael
Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead." (CNN 2 December 2015)
3) Terrorists, criminals and foreign fighters are part of the daily refugee flow
into Europe, the top NATO commander in Europe told lawmakers, “masking the movement” of these dangerous elements and heightening the potential for an attack.
In testimony Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee, US Air
Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said the Islamic State extremist group is “spreading like a cancer” within this mix, “taking advantage of paths of least resistance, threatening European nations” and the
In response to a question about whether the Islamic State will continue to infiltrate refugee flows, Breedlove said, “I think that they are doing that today.” (NY Post 1 March 2016)
of these seasoned, expert, intelligence, and security experts validate my assertions. The case in question is not about encryption nor security, but a lack of accountability and politics, more specifically the 2016 Presidential and Congressional elections.
(Complete details of the reality of the dangerous state of DHS and the DOJ can be found on this site erected by myself http://theapplenarrative.simplesite.com/).
The situation described by the three intelligence and military personnel above are the norm not the exception in regards to the behavior and actions of the political, intelligence, and security leadership of the United States of America. I personally
have experienced such politicizing of national security first hand as the the attached documents indicate.
In conclusion, I would also stress that if Apple is forced to create a "backdoor" encryption app or similar for the FBI/DOJ,
not only will it open the United States to devastating cyber attacks, but it will result in the American tech industry and Apple losing their position as the #1 industry and corporation respectively in the highly competitive global technology industry. Additionally,
the requests would never end due to DHS and the DOJ not being functioning security entities. The political elite would just make it standard operational procedure to both "blame Apple" and use Apple as its core defense against terrorist threats rather than
address the genesis of the issue at hand and develop a security model that has a chance of working.
I thank you for your time and consideration.
