Gary McKinnon won backing yesterday from an unexpected source - an American whose job it was to protect the very computers that he breached.
Joseph Gutheinz spent ten years at the space exploration agency Nasa as a front-line criminal investigator with expertise in hacking.
He believes 43-year-old Gary 'did America a favour' by exposing the gaping holes in its security systems and called for a halt to the 'witch hunt' against him.
As news of the Daily Mail's campaign to halt Gary's extradition spread across the Atlantic, Mr Gutheinz added his voice in support.
Source: Gary was just a guy looking for ET. This witch hunt must end (and that's the man from NASA's view)
