Hacker loses extradition appeal

By | August 28, 2008

A Briton accused of hacking into secret military computers has lost his appeal against extradition to the US.

Glasgow-born Gary McKinnon was said to be “distraught” after losing the appeal to the European Court of Human Rights. He faces extradition within two weeks.

The unemployed man could face life in jail if convicted of accessing 97 US military and Nasa computers.

The 42-year-old admitted breaking into the computers from his London home but said he sought information on UFOs. – bbc

The wheels of justice move slowly. He claims he found photo evidence of UFOs.  It seems more likely that he found some false information set up to catch snoopers. Sometimes it seems to me that the US government actually wants everyone to believe it is hiding information about aliens and UFOs.

In 2006, a Freedom of Information Act request was filed to NASA for all documents pertaining to Gary McKinnon. NASA‘s documents consisted of printed news articles from the Slashdot website, but no other related documents. This is consistent with NASA employees browsing internet articles about Gary McKinnon, the records of which are public domain. The records have been uploaded to the internet for review, and can be downloaded from theblackvault.com.
