This Week’s Extraordinary Top Story
Gary McKinnon Extradition Appeal Fails
The UK man who notoriously hacked into the U.S. Government computer database has been once again denied in his appeal to avoid extradition to the United States to stand trial for his alleged crimes. Gary McKinnon claims that he was searching for evidence of alien life when he delved into top secret U.S. files, however officials claim that he left messages criticizing U.S. foreign policy, which made his presence inside the database all the more threatening (in their opinion).
One of the biggest arguments in favor of allowing Gary to remain in Britain to plea to lesser charges is that he is autistic, and not entirely responsible for the “havoc” caused by his actions. Other sources site him as having Asperger’s Syndrome.
All of that said, Gary has some pretty fascinating claims regarding information that he supposedly uncovered. He says that he found evidence of UFOs, anti-gravity technology, and the suppression of “Free Energy”. If all of this is true… is it little wonder that the U.S. wants to get their hands on the guy?
