The govt should be able to extract data from the phone in question. As a matter of national security Apple should be required to develop such technology so that, in the event of such a crisis, we have the capabilities to apprehend information that couldn't otherwise be obtained with Apple's current encryption rights and technology. This has the potential to save lives, and if Apple isn't willing to develop or divulge information about encryption, they themselves are a threat to National Security. It is not only the governments right but it is their obligation to ensure the lives of their people to their utmost capabilities. Apple's current policy interferes with the US's capabilities of protecting their citizens.
