In general, if they want to break into something, big brother has many supercomputer that they can use to break in the phone. Big brother also already has all the information from phone records, email, sms, iMessages, and other stuff. I do not see why they need to open up this one phone to get a few selfies. What they want to do, it seems to me, is to open up a precedence so that in the future they can ask for more one off jobs. What's scary is that if one government can do it, all other governments can do it too. So if someone from US gov travel to Russia they can hold ransom to a US company to ask for a one off job to open up his phone / laptop, all because US gov has already done it. Scary isn't it?
