Unexpected Apple support from former CIA/NSA chief: FBI's request for backdoor 'harms American safety and security'

On Tuesday, protesters in 30 American cities demonstrated against the FBI's attempts to force Apple to break the security it has built into iPhones. From the The New York Daily News:
     Even retired Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of both the CIA and the NSA, has questioned whether the FBI is overreaching.
      “(FBI director) Jim (Comey) would like a backdoor available to American law enforcement in all devices globally,” Hayden told USA Today. “And, frankly, I think on balance that actually harms American safety and security, even though it might make Jim’s job a bit easier in some specific circumstances.”
