Yep you guessed it. They found NOTHING!! Zip, Nada, Zilch.

Your Tax dollars at work!

FBI Director James Comey today revealed that the FBI spent more than a million dollars to crack Syed Farooks iPhone. After nearly a month, the agency has found nothing.

The phone, which was the linchpin in the recent Apple and FBI showdown in front of congress, was believed to have data that could tie Farook to radical Islamic terrorist groups.

I said when this started the guy wouldn't be stupid enough to use a work phone. The other phones used were destroyed to the point where no info could be removed from the phones.

 

Maybe the FBI could have saved a million by using one of these, called a MFC dongle placed on the screen of the phone.

Makes me so mad when tax dollars are totally wasted.   Also, that million could feed a lot of needy children, that is what really bugs me.

 

Also, the "fact" if these so called "great" alpha agencies had been more competent, then this kind of BS wouldn't be needed.

 

Thank You Uncle Sam.   :clapping:
