Profile: Gary McKinnon (Man who faces extradition for hacking into US military computers was a computer whiz with an obsession for UFOs

As seen in another article , Gary McKinnon (born 10 February 1966) is a Scottish computer systems administrator and ‘hacker’ who was accused in 2002 of carrying out the “biggest military computer hack of all time”, although the McKinnon himself stated that he was merely looking for evidence of the suppression of free energy and the cover-up of UFOs and other technologies that could potentially be used for the population.

 

On October 16, 2012, after a series of legal proceedings in the United Kingdom, Home Affairs Secretary Theresa May withdrew her order to extradite McKinnon to the United States.

McKinnon was accused of hacking into 97 US and NASA military computers over a 13-month period between February 2001 and March 2002, using the name ‘Solo.

Government to rule in October on Pentagon hacker U.S. extradition

Gary McKinnon faces up to 60 years in jail if convicted in American courts for what one U.S. prosecutor has described as the “biggest military computer hack of all time”.

U.S. officials say he knocked out hundreds of military computers in the months after the September 11, 2001 attacks, undermining security and causing damage worth nearly $1 million (643 thousand pounds).

McKinnon, 46, admits hacking into Pentagon and NASA computers from his bedroom in London, but says he was only looking for evidence of aliens and UFOs.

He suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism, and his lawyers say he is too ill to be sent for trial in the United States.

Home Secretary Theresa May will announce her decision on whether McKinnon should be sent to the United States for trial by mid-October, a lawyer representing the British government told the High Court in London.

May has been studying medical reports before making up her mind and has been busy supervising the security for the Olympic Games, which open in London on Friday. Her spokesman had no immediate comment on the case.

McKinnon’s mother Janis Sharp said the further delay was unacceptable.

“If Theresa May had got an ounce of compassion she would make her decision now, before the Olympics, because she has any number of medical reports – these delays are destroying my son’s life,” she told reporters outside court.

Campaigners have urged the British government to do more to help McKinnon, who was first arrested in 2005. Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama have discussed the case.

McKinnon’s supporters say his case shows that an extradition treaty signed by Washington and London after the 9/11 attacks is unfair and biased against British criminal suspects.

A committee of MPs came to the same conclusion, saying in March that the treaty was unbalanced and made it easier to extradite a British citizen to the United States than vice versa.

However, a judge-led review ordered by the British government concluded last October that the extradition treaty was fair, with “no practical difference” between the evidence each country needs to provide to seek a suspect’s transfer.
