A new report written by Ambassador Andrei Krutskikh from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) to Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Oleg Ostapenko that is circulating in the Kremlin today warns that use of the new Apple iPhone 5 constitutes a “grave threat” to all Russian citizens in that merely by its use, “all users have given up their rights to the United States Government.”
Ambassador Krutskikh is the Special Coordinator of the political use of information and communication technologies for the MoFA and was previously Chairman of the Group of UN Governmental Experts on the issue of international information security, and Chairman of the Expert Group on International Information Security of Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
Deputy Defense Minister Ostapenko is tasked with the creation of “cyber troops” for the Ministry whose duties include monitoring and processing external information, as well as fighting cyber threats to the Motherland.
At issue with the iPhone5, Ambassador Krutskikh warns in his report, is the biometric authentication used in these new smart phones which will let users unlock their device with a fingerprint.
Though being marketed as a secure device because of this new fingerprint biometric feature, this report continues, the iPhone5 is, instead, the “holy grail” of spying devices due to the fact that its users, merely by using this feature, automatically give up all of their rights to privacy as afforded to them under the US Constitution…specifically their the constitutional protection of the Fifth Amendment, which guarantees that “no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.”
This issue is “critical” for all Russian citizens to be aware of, Ambassador Krutskikh says, due to the United States National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that codifies indefinite military detention without charge or trial into law for the first time in American history. The NDAA’s dangerous detention provisions also authorize President Obama — and all future US Presidents — to order the military to pick up and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the world, far from any battlefield, for any reason at all.
The most common US law all people in the world, including Russians, are subject to, this report says, is found in Section 9.5.5 of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) manual titled Money Laundering and Currency Crimes and whose provisions are so “overly broad” that nearly everyone on the planet is now looked upon by the Obama regime as a criminal.
Critical to note is that the influential American technology website Wired.com has recently concurred with Ambassador Krutskikh’s dire assessment of the dangers posed by those using the new iPhone 5s by stating:
“The privilege against self-incrimination is an important check on the government’s ability to collect evidence directly from a witness. The Supreme Court has made it clear that the Fifth Amendment broadly applies not only during a criminal prosecution, but also to any other proceeding “civil or criminal, formal or informal,” where answers might tend to incriminate us. It’s a constitutional guarantee deeply rooted in English law dating back to the 1600s, when it was used to protect people from being tortured by inquisitors to force them to divulge information that could be used against them.
For the privilege to apply, however, the government must try to compel a person to make a “testimonial” statement that would tend to incriminate him or her. When a person has a valid privilege against self-incrimination, nobody — not even a judge — can force the witness to give that information to the government.
But a communication is “testimonial” only when it reveals the contents of your mind. We can’t invoke the privilege against self-incrimination to prevent the government from collecting biometrics like fingerprints, DNA samples, or voice exemplars. Why? Because the courts have decided that this evidence doesn’t reveal anything you know. It’s not testimonial.”
With the Fifth Amendment rights now being stripped away from all users of the new iPhone5, Ambassador Krutskikh further states, all information contained on these smart phones, even the phone calls themselves, are able to not only be stored for all time by US police and intelligence agencies, but are now able to be used in Courts against them.
Important to note, this report continues, is that evidence of the US collecting and storing all phone calls was confirmed in 2008 by the popular American actor Shia LaBeouf, who while being interviewed [see video HERE] gave evidence of his own phone calls being played back for him by US intelligence officials, and was further confirmed by FBI experts being interviewed after the Boston Marathon Bombings [see video HERE] who stated that all US phone companies record conversations that are able to be accessed by the NSA.
Whereas previous calls recorded and stored by the NSA are not able to used in Court, this report warns, users of the new iPhone5 have no such protection anymore, no matter where their call was placed from, nor what their nationality is.
Even worse, according to a recent article by Germany’s Der Spiegel, the NSA is able to infiltrate iPhones as they sync to a user’s computer via programs called scripts, which provide access to at least 38 additional iPhone features, meaning that all of this once private information can be used against people in the Courts too without any constitutional protections.
With US Federal agencies now employing some 120,000 officers authorized to carry guns and make arrests, Ambassador Krutskikh concludes in his report, and the use of paramilitary SWAT teams in the US having reached epidemic proportions; being deployed between 100 and 150 times a day or 50,000 times yearly (a stark increase from the 3000 yearly deployments of the 1980s when violent crime rates were much higher) the numbers of iPhone5 users soon to be entrapped and imprisoned with no constitutional rights afforded to them can be expected to soar into the hundreds of thousands, if not the millions.
