Gary McKinnen, a Scot who’s exploits put Kevin Mitnick to shame, allegedly has hacked into 97 US military and NASA computers. He’s in England fighting extradition, probably because he quite sanely doesn’t want to be tried as a terrorist. The US is using threatening strong-arm tactics to get him to not fight the extradition to the US, such as leaning on the UK to revoke his rights should he eventually be extradited. A nasty picture of what both the US and the UK are all about nowadays.
