pfbi fully in this case. pthey came to us and asked us for pall the information we had on pthis phone, and we gave peverything that we had. pbut this case is not about one hone. pthis case is about the future. pwhat is at stake here is, can pthe government compel apple toll pwrite software that we believe pwould make hundreds of millions pof 'cause customers vulnerable around pthe world, including the u.s. p>> and you'd have to write that psystem in order to unlock that hone? p>> yes. pthe only way we know would be to pwrite a piece of software that pwe view as sort of the software pequivalent of cancer. pwe think it's bad news to write. pwe would never write it. pwe have never written it. pand that is what is at stake phere. p>> the fbi, though, says it pbelieves that syed farook used pthat phone to communicate with phis wife, his accomplice, and pi'm curious, do you struggle at pall with the possibility that pthere could be information on
pother plots, other people who pwere involved in planning the psan bernardino attack? p>> david, if we knew a way to pget the information on the phone pthat we haven't already given, pif we knew a way to do this, pthat would not expose hundreds pof millions of other people's pit. p>> i want to get to what the fbi pdirector, james comey, has said. pit's about, quote, 14 people who pwere slaughtered and many more phad their lives ruined. pmaybe the phone holds the clue pto finding more terrorists, pmaybe it doesn't. pbut we can't look the survivors pin the eye and ourselves if we pdon't follow any possible lead pout there. pdo you understand where he's pcoming from? p>> i do understand where he's pcoming from. pand this is an incredibly pcomplex issue, to place a back pdoor in the iphone. pwe believe it does put hundreds pof millions of customers at prisk. p>> let me ask you this. pyou invited me to apple before. pthe stories are legendary about pnew products with blake dripry
pany american company can keep a psecret, it's apple. pwhy didn't the fbi and apple pteam up in one of those secret plabs and get this done and no pone would have ever had to know pabout it? p>> well, i can't talk about the ptactics of the fbi. pthey've chosen what they've done pand they've chosen to do this pout in the public, for whatever preasons that they have. pwhat we think at this point, pgiven it is out in the public, pis that we need to stand tall pand stand tall on principle. pthere's probably more pinformation about you on your phouse. pour smartphones are loaded with pour intimate conversations, our precords. pthey're also loaded with the plocation of our kids, in many pcases, so, it's not just about rove sip. pbut it is also about public psafety. p>> but in your quiet moments, do pyou have any concern that you pmight be able to prevent a
pinto that phone? p>> david, some things are hard, pand some things are right. pand some things are both. pthis is one of those things. p>> and in this case, you believe pthere are some things that just pshould never be created. p>> correct. p>> but tim cook items us they ptalked to the fbi early on, pgiving them advice, he says, on pother ways to best get pinformation from that iphone. pto plug it in, to back it up to pthe i cloud. pdid they do that? p>> unfortunately, in the days, pthe early days of the pinvestigation, an fbi -- fbi pdirected the county to reset the pi cloud password. pwhen that is done, the phone pwill no longer back up to the pcloud, and so, i wish they would phave contacted us earlier, so pthat they would not have been pthe case. p>> how crucial was that missed popportunity? p>> it's very crucial. p>> the white house said this pweek that the fbi's request is, pquote, limited in scope. plimited in scope. pdo you agree with that, and have
pthis? p>> i have not talked to the resident. pi will talk to the president. pdo i think it's limited, no. p>> you have talked to the resident before, on these pissues of privacy and security. p>> yes. p>> are you disappointed there pwasn't more of a dialogue with pthe administration before this pswift action from the justice pdepartment? p>> yes. p>> you wish there was more done? p>> yes. pand i think there should have pbeen. pthis -- we found out about the pfiling from the press. p>> i'm curious, tim, did you pever think that you'd find pyourself at the center of such a pcrucial national debate? p>> no. pthis is -- this is not a osition that we would like to pbe in. pit is a very uncomfortable pto oppose your government on psomething doesn't feel good. pand to oppose it on something pwhere we are advocating for
pare supposed to protect, it is pincredibly ironic. p>> apple has until friday to prespond to the judge's order pthat it assist the fbi. ptheir legal team is preparing. pthe full interview with tim cook pon our website at abcnews.com, pand then tonight on "nightline," pi ask tim cook about donald ptrump's call to boycott apple. p in the meantime, to other pnews and from washington ptonight, a new development in pthe standoff over the supreme pcourt. ptwo top republicans now agreeing pto meet with president obama to pdiscuss nominees. psenate majority leader mitch pmcconnell and chuck gaszley. pyesterday, both said they would ptake, quote, no action, on panyone the president named. pto be continued. p and we're learning new pinformation tonight about the ilot in that deadly chopper pcrash near pearl harbor. pthe family on board, last night, ptheir teenage son passing away. phe had been trapped under water. prescuers cutting him free. pwell, tonight here, why the ilot now says he steered that phelicopter right into the water. pabc's david kerley covers paviation.
