Good day to you again, Maybe...maybe not.
Also I don't believe McKinnon will be extradited to a jail in the USA but the real reason, in my opinion is that, his extradition it has become a threat for NASA and the Agencies that govern the Extraterrestrial/UFOs/Alien matter because of the enormous "contrary" publicity that this event could trigger wolrld-wide.
Better strategy is not insist on his extradition and to leave all to shut up.

Well, if it was a big picture, and if the bandwith was low (I think it has to be when you're hacking into their servers), he might have seen like 2 thirds of the picture (you can see what it is but have no way to download it) before being spotted for staying too long on the same page.
just to point how easy it was for him to get into these systems
he is not a hacker he stated this in an interview i seen on TV some time ago
he was using a Program called PCAnywhere a common system administrators tool with a dial up connection running at 56k
he would never even have had to open a single file just sit back and watch the user interact with the computer
anyone could have accesed those computers they had blank PCAnywhere passwords
