A Briton accused of hacking into secret military computers has lost his appeal against extradition to the US.

Glasgow-born Gary McKinnon was said to be "distraught" after losing the appeal to the European Court of Human Rights. He faces extradition within two weeks.

Basically its all the same threads.

He will probably only get 5 to 10 years in USA federal pen anyway (since were at war with evil doers and must make an example for terrorist hacking etc...) he'll write a book in prison and then go back to England.

He will get free medical and dental care while in a USA prison and they will fed him well (with no hard labor) at least.
