The FBI announced that it has broken into the iPhone of Syed Farook, one of the San Bernadino shooters–and  they did it without a court order. Cyrus Farivar joins us to discuss how and why. Plus: we talk with Samer Khalef about a new FBI surveillance program called “Shared Responsibility Committees,” that critics are calling “informant networks” targeting the Arab and Muslim communities.
