Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden has questioned the FBI's claim that Apple is the only entity that can open dead terrorist Sayed Farook's iPhone. He made the comments during a panel held by Common Cause called "A Conversation on Surveillance, Democracy, and Civil Society." During that panel, Mr. Snowden characterized the assertion as "bullshit," citing alternate methods of accessing the data such as decapping chips on the device and others. He also tweeted a link to an ACLU piece that details some of those method. The Intercept did a great writeup of Mr. Snowden's comments, or you can watch them below. Like or loathe Edward Snowden, his comments are almost always worth considering one way or another in any conversation about surveillance.
