British hacker to face the music in the U.S.

You wanted to see if you could do it and then you did. Congrats! One thing. You got caught. Don’t expect the British government to bail you out. The British want to keep the U.S. relations all chummy, you see. I bet this will wipe that snide smile off your face. Have fun getting your butt waxed in prison.

“Gary McKinnon has lost his legal challenge against extradition to the United States to face charges of hacking into NASA and military systems.

Two weeks ago, McKinnon’s legal team submitted his application to the ECHR. Under the terms of the application, the U.K. government could not extradite McKinnon. This legal block has now been lifted.” (link)

    McKinnon is a 43 year old man who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome. Even if he did this then there is no way that he should be treated as a major criminal. Autistic people think differently and act differently!

    The military call it ‘ the biggest military computer hack ever’.

    If I was in charge of these American military computers then I would be too ashamed to admit that someone with Asperger’s Syndrome found it so easy to hack into their systems.

    If someone like McKinnon could do this then enemy intelligence could probably do the same standing on their heads! Perhaps the USA military should put McKinnon in charge of these computer systems. It looks like he could do a better job!!!
