Sadly the story was not given a great deal of prominence in the UK press (and I imagine barely any at all in the states, though I stand to be corrected). Given there are obvious issues regarding sovereign authority and personal rights in this case, whatever you think about the worthiness of Mackinnon's position, it's a little unsettling to find so little coverage.

Even more unsettling to me is the lack of serious attention given to the story on these boards. This is a guy who has made a serious effort to unearth conspiracy at NASA and associated organisations. Given the wide-eyed awe with which the latest funny-shaped rock on Mars is greeted on ATS, one might have thought that a man who is proven to have come as close as anyone to unearthing serious material on NASA cover ups would be afforded a little more attention, if not respect.

If there are conspirators at NASA, they'd have good reason, looking at ATS, to think they're winning. As we devote ourselves to debating the veracity of photos of a rabbit population on Neptune, Gary Mackinnon is packing his bags and facing a lifetime served in a US jail - the price of looking for conspiracy in the real world, rather than in his own over-imaginative mind....
