Gary McKinnon, the ex-systems administrator accused of conducting the biggest military hack of all time, has won the right to have his case against extradition to the US heard by the House of Lords. The decision gives McKinnon and legal team a fresh chance to challenge the extradition, having argued previously that the US authorities acted in an "oppressive" manner to secure his removal from the UK.

McKinnon was not all that .The only reason they are portraying him to be this master hacker is so they do not look so bad for getting hacked by a pot smoking run of the mill geek.
