Re: One thing that apparently happened after this story was posted

"Apple issued another denial that specifically said they aren't under any national security gag orders. I suppose if you were under a national security gag order capable of making you issue denials, it could make you issue a "we aren't under a gag order" denial."

If Apple were issued a National Security Letter, under US Federal Law it would be a criminal act for them to admit it or to admit anything the lettered covered. So Apple claiming they aren't under any national security gag orders is meaningless. Such a denial is issued for the benefit of the dim witted.
