Asperger


www.guardian.co.uk

"Humanitarian considerations" that have arisen in the case of Asperger's syndrome sufferer Gary McKinnon mean he should not face trial in the US for hacking into American military computers, the high court heard today.

In a last-ditch attempt to overturn earlier court decisions that the 43-year-old "UFO enthusiast" should be extradited, his lawyers accused prosecutors of ignoring the "disastrous consequences" of facing trial and a possible lengthy prison sentence in an American "supermax" prison.

Wonder if he found anything interesting?

I hope he tells....

Have there ever been any meaningful and successful hacks that people know of producing useful info on black ops? Is anything truly useful actually kept where it can be accessed via computer?

I'd assume not, the best stuff seems often burried in the open, but maybe Gary hit gold?

No, there is no really worthwhile or secret information stored out on the normal WWW. The military uses separate classified networks to store all such information. And to go even deeper, there are separate networks for secret and top secret information, neither of which are able to be accessed from a normal computer.

I heard that he found a before and after folder where Nasa had been airbrushing pictures from Space.
I really think that they should just leave him alone.....Whether he is sick or not

I seem to recall something about him finding a list of people that a document dubbed "non-terrestrial officers" and designs or photos for cigar-shaped aircraft. Here is Project Camelot's interview with him: Link

Perhaps Mr Mckinnon should have thought about the consequences before he decided to engage in criminal activity. The whole Asperger thing sounds like a load of BS concocted to try to get him off the hook, I fail to see how it should prevent him from standing trail, its not like some of the more serious disorders like Bipolar, Schizophrenia, etc where reality for the patient differs drastically from the reality of the rest of the world.

Considering the methods by which he hacked the Pentagon and simply typing the password PASSWORD, he must have humiliated a bunch of very senior people and cut short a few careers. He has to pay a price.

If he cut short a few politicians careers then they should pay him. If he pointed out a big hole in your security then what about saying thankyou. Rather Gary than some of you other friends in the world.....

The proper way to point out a security hole is NOT to actively exploit it then try to make nice after the fact. If he had went through the proper channels he most likely would not be facing charges right now, as it stands he did the exact opposite of the proper thing and now is facing the consequences.

All he did was look at a picture through an application and accessed some PC's remotely. How this warrants extradition to a Foreign country is totally beyond me. Hopefully someone in our Government will put a stop to this tomorow....
Also the claims for damages are grossly over exagerated

Druid, how would you feel if someone hacked your computer and released a mirrored image of your hard drive? Would you say 'Oh Well, he/she has Aspergers syndrome so I won't bother with having them stopped from hacking my computer!' All your banking and net passwords and nearly everything else you might have out there in cyberspace for anyone and everyone to see might change your mind! Fact is, hacking a government or any civilian computer system is illegal without a warrant..unless you ARE the government!!!

I would feel bad if I was the victim of a malicious attack - However all this took place in 2002 when the law was very different. Gary has admitted to the hack but lets face it we will never get any info out of these government departments by legal means or playing fair. I really do take my hat off to Gary and wish him all the luck in the world. Also in my opinion as a British Citizen he should be tried on British soil according to British law.
A deeper underlying question here is just what is Nasa hiding would not hiding the presence or proof of ET be a much greater crime.

How do you know he isn't Al Qaida? He needs to be worked over in Gitmo just make sure he is innocent!

Nah! Just kidding.


He committed the crime in England so he should do the time here. I reckon 60 hours community service should sort him out. Maybe he could teach computing to ragamuffins.

Sentencing this guy to prison for the remainder of his life is completely absurd. Though, I wouldn't expect any thing less from a country that possesses the largest prison population on the face of the planet.

That because we have the biggest bunch of liars.
Starting with JP Morgan.
And perhaps Truman sealed this guys fate by making the UFO
officially bad news for snoops.
If disclosure was opened long ago no one would snoop at all.

It really is amusing though, if Gary McKinnon can see this stuff (let's just suppose it is regarding proof of aliens etc), you can bet Russia, China etc have seen it, long before Gary...and had enough bandwidth at the time to download all of their stored images.

Proof of Aliens won't come for a long time.
That tail has been spoon fed through the years to everyone by the Illuminati.
Feel silly now.
The only disclosure would be all the Illuminati lies and dirty deeds.
Like I said, if Truman didn't lie this hacker wold have nothing to hack.

My understanding of British law states that although he has the right to serve his time in Britain, he does not have the right to demand he be tried there. I know of two British soldiers who committed crimes here where tried here but the Embassy demanded they be sent back to Britain to serve their time and it was found to be the status quo for all British citizens. Since the intrusion was in this country the jurisdiction is also here! The laws you speak of were in place here in 2000, well before this incident!

Why are you on this site? This is a very serious question because here is a man who actually DID something towards a cause he believed in...

Yes he broke the law and got caught - It was worth it...

Obviously I have more respect for him than yourself.
