let that hacker go!

title sung in the tune of "let my people go". apparently a few years ago British hacker, Gary McKinnon, cracked into 90 somethin military computers bc he thought the US was hiding info on ufo. this guy has asperger's syndrome & is (obviously) a ufo fanatic...he lost his appeal at the high court in the uk.

"Mr McKinnon faces up to 70 years in prison if convicted in the US of what prosecutors have called 'the biggest military computer hack of all time'".

who has time for that?? 70 years?? don't think this guy realized he was being "a threat to national security", think he was seriously just trying to get to the bottom of if there were ufos or not! nope he should not be extradited, case closed.

here's the full bbc article from today for more info.

I'm more concerned with what he actually found in going through the military's computers! where's that info?
