They're assuming Apple can even do so and frankly even if they could, they won't.
That was my recollection as well: that Apple itself had no backdoor.
I bet itís already unlocked.

While the shooting and deaths of American servicemembers is undeniably tragic, I hope Apple tells them "Not only no but HELL NO! Also, fuck off while you're at it."

Government mandated backdoors in to encryption means that encryption becomes worthless.

It is beyond that. Even if major corporations agreed to put in backdoors the "bad guys" will simply communicate with methods that are not compromised -- or at least the smart ones will. Which in a way is an argument for the backdoors -- if you are a bad guy and you aren't smart about it, you deserve to be caught. But, of course, it also damages civil liberties... so yeah...

What?
You mean to tell me that you donít trust governments.
Without governments we wouldnít have things like Eddie Snowden, 737 Max, overpriced prescriptions, Bernie Madeoff, smallpox blankets, Enron, the Waco Siege, Blacks sites, torture and concentration camps.
Whatís a little broken encryption to add to that list.

Yeah, the US goverment as a whole refuses to recognize the encryption genie is out of the bottle. I remember when PGP was released in the early 90s. At the time I was subscribing to a magazine called "Boardwatch", which was basically about bulletin boards. That's how I found out about it. It was clear to me then the cork had been pulled. But the US continues to pretend they can stuff the genie back in...
