I've never heard of this "Gary McKinnon" person before today, however after reading an article that deals with his purported actions as SOLO, I have
What was the political atmosphere like when this event occurred?
Why were there no legal repercussions? (besides his life being ruined,)
Did anyone on the online community know him? I'm surprised that the articles I've found deal with his real-life persona yet ignore whatever digital
footprint he left.
His motives/thought processes seemed childish at best,
Was Gary McKinnon actually SOLO, or a different individual? Not charging a 40 something year old man with destruction of property is unusual in an
international case of this nature. However, if it were a different person, say one who was a minor, things begin to make much more sense.
If he was actually looking for UFOs in a childish fashion (which seems to be the case,) I wouldn't be surprised if he views this site from time to
So any thoughts as to what occurred?

Considering current events, and what happens to hackers/whistle-blowers/crackers, this man was incredibly lucky. I could liken it to a tornado forming
a fully functional F-22 fighter jet out of tin cans and roofing nails.

I think he spent most of his time doing the hacking, it became an obsession, like he said. So I don't know f you will find many writings of his on
any forums or anything. But it would be interesting if there was. He's probably not allowed to be around computers anymore so anything would be
nearly 10 years old if he ever did have a MySpace profile or anything. It's probably been deleted anyway if be did have profiles on any sites. But if
you found anything it could be interesting.There are probably a lot of copycat and non intentional copycat SOLOs out there. There are a lot of
StarWars fans, and that may even be where SOLO got the name SOLO from, as in Han Solo, the character played by Harrison Ford. Then, of course, you
have to weed through the thousands upon thousands of SOLO Styrofoam & Plastic Disposable Cup enthusiasts.... Just kidding. But there are some people
who consider themselves to be kind of on their own or doing their own thing or doing things their own way, who may consider the nickname SOLO to be
appropriate for their particular lifestyle or worldview or circumstances relating to the act or concept of being SOLO i.e. Alone. I think there's
even an old rap song all about Riding Solo or something...
Anyway, I think this story is very interesting, and I wonder what secrets he has not revealed... He mentioned something about a list of off-world
officers or lists of ship names that could be space craft, or UFOs. But he didn't tell everything he knew... I wonder if he's told anyone like
friends or family. I wanna know the name of a real spaceship!!!! D:
Whoever SOLO was, he was intelligent enough to be reading this. Please don't # with me just because you want to preserve your ego. You have minions
and acolytes, I hope they stop #ing with my mouse as well.
Assuming he didn't take a mercury filled hollow tip to the noggin.
That being said, any one who has/pulls this kind of thing will be perpetually monitored for the rest of their lives. Everyone they contact will be
Even this thread will be monitored and read. Not because it is unique, but because that is the world we live in.
Hello intelligence agent who is reading this.
Please drink a beer for us; we are on your side most of the time...Except when your bosses want to kill us all because Walmart told 'em to.
Then again, perhaps the MKULTRA brain washing and early age hypnotism probably got to you.
I certainty hope not, as most of that psychometric data was based on six year old trollers anyway.
*EDIT* Seriously guys, stop #ing with my mouse. I'm trying to kill Nazis over here and play video games. Any modifications you made can be tracked.

After reading more internet stuff, I came across something known as "operation solo", can anyone give me
The following is from the FBI website:
Operation SOLO was a long-running FBI program to infiltrate the Communist Party of the United States and gather intelligence about its
relationship to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, China, and other communist nations. It officially began in 1958 and ended in 1977, although
Morris and Jack Childs, two of the principal agents in the operation, had been involved with the Bureau for several years prior. The files range from
March 1958 to April 1966. Read a related story at
Also, does the name "solo protocol" have any significance; is there an actual "solo protocol"?
