I’m really sympathetic to both sides. I just can’t believe there isn’t a way to create this key and keep it away from hackers or the internet.
It is true though that once it’s created it will be used left and right by the FBI to hack iphones. So I get Cook’s point about it setting a precedent.
But this is national security at stake here.
