The military uses strange jargon. Non-Terrestrial Officers may just mean that they are either ship or submarine... as I believe the information was gleaned from a Navy site. Many time the names are converted to codewords so as not to jeopardize to much information.
Terrestrial---of or relating to land as distinct from air or water. M-W
I very much doubt that the United states could keep something of this magnitude secret as so many support personnel would be needed.

While I surely agree with your sentiment I wonder if the possibility exists that he had too much "fame" before they could get rid of him? That is the ONLY thing that will keep you alive if your ticket is punched.

the only thing i really questioned is about the images he said he viewd but wasnt able to save them, we all know if you're viewing an image from the net on your computer its already downloaded into your system and being held in ram, why he couldnt save it or at least printscreen doesnt make sense to me.
Poor Gary. He was just an adventurer exploring a new world (the internet). It's nothing that I wouldn't have tried if I had the know-how. I think all the worry of this is making him ill. I sincerely hope he just gets a job out of this and isn't sent over to "fry" as he was told would happen when he's handed over. I think it's ridiculous that the British government is simply going to hand him over to the US anyway. He should be tried in this country and as far as I'm concerned it's a knuckle-rapping he should get and nothing else. There are hundreds of hackers doing worse than him. Some have even been caught for worse and let go. I think Gary may still have some information and someone wants it out of him, (because they're also in the dark).

Gary didn't do any real hacking at all he used off the shelf software something like PC anywhere or whatever it's called now. He was able to access all new computers without passwords set up.
Damage computers, what BS, and how do you breach security when there is none to begin with?
interestingly he claims that there were others from all over the world also logging in.
He was inspired from witness testimony from the discolsure project can't remember which witness but he basically followed his/her directions which building etc... even the raw and edited file categories were there as the witness had claimed.
I think we should support Gary, highlight his case. Imagine if they had to explain what gary saw in court.
