As you may or may not know, UFO crackpot Gary McKinnon has lost his appeal against extradition to the US for hacking into woefully insecure NASA computers in his search for evidence of UFO's. Linky HERE Now, regardless of how much of a fruitcake he may be, how fcuking dare the US demand the extradition of a UK citizen to face charges in the US for a crime commited in the UK? The only thing he actually achieved was showing NASA how crap their security was. He was no threat to security, had no political agenda and is frankly way too much of a Star Trek geek to be a terrorist. The US have bullied the UK and EU courts into extraditing him. He faces a life sentence in the US for a crime that he would probably get a 12 month sentence for in the UK. I would gladly hide this guy in my plant pots in order to stop the Stazi (oops, sorry, meant US Dept of Justice) getting their slimy mitts on him. Seen as the US felt fit to not ratify the extradition treaty under which he is being extradited, my feelings are to tell them to go fcuk theirselves. Isn't it about time our own government started reading page 1 of our passports and actually applying the "afford the bearer such protection as may be neccesary" to their own citizens?
