Gary McKinnon The UFOlogists Whistleblower Updated: Extradition Blocked!

Gary McKinnon is a computer and systems analyst from Great Britain who for 13 months between February 2001 and March 2002 walked right into 97 United States government computer networks from agencies like the Departments of Defense, Army, Navy, and NASA. Our government has been involved in a massive effort to extradite Gary McKinnon to the United States in order to try him for espionage.

Despite medical conditions and the fact that at the time the alleged crime was committed British law only laid down a 6 month punishment for what he was accused of our government still insists on trying to extradite and punish him.

Adept2u :: Gary McKinnon The UFOlogists Whistleblower Updated: Extradition Blocked!
McKinnon, who faces trial in the US over hacking into military computers more than 10 years ago, will find out tomorrow if Mrs May will offer him a last-minute reprieve.
McKinnon, who suffers from Asperger syndrome - a high-functioning form of autism - has been fighting against extradition for more than a decade and is waiting "with anxiety, but hope" for the decision, his lawyer, Karen Todner, said.

Sure he pants'd our national security and if he were truly a person with animosity he could have perhaps done some damage, however what's funny to me is how very few people involved in this case are giving any real notice to what he stated he found while rummaging around in our cyber world. He wasn't looking for trouble, he was looking for UFOs

The US authorities claim he deleted critical files from operating systems, which shut down the US Army's Military District of Washington network of 2,000 computers for 24 hours, as well as deleting US Navy Weapons logs, rendering a naval base's network of 300 computers inoperable after the September 11th terrorist attacks. McKinnon is also accused of copying data, account files and passwords onto his own computer. US authorities claim the cost of tracking and correcting the problems he caused was over $700,000.[3]

That's what the government says that Gary denies. Of course America is upset that someone could so easily stroll into their national security infrastructure, what Gary said he saw while he was cruising around in the password free environment no one is really talking about so much.

WN: Did you find anything in your search for evidence of UFOs?

McKinnon: Certainly did. There is The Disclosure Project. This is a book with 400 testimonials from everyone from air traffic controllers to those responsible for launching nuclear missiles. Very credible witnesses. They talk about reverse-(engineered) technology taken from captured or destroyed alien craft.

WN: Like the Roswell incident of 1947?

McKinnon: I assume that was the first and assume there have been others. These relied-upon people have given solid evidence.

WN: What sort of evidence?

McKinnon: A NASA photographic expert said that there was a Building 8 at Johnson Space Center where they regularly airbrushed out images of UFOs from the high-resolution satellite imaging. I logged on to NASA and was able to access this department. They had huge, high-resolution images stored in their picture files. They had filtered and unfiltered, or processed and unprocessed, files.
My dialup 56K connection was very slow trying to download one of these picture files. As this was happening, I had remote control of their desktop, and by adjusting it to 4-bit color and low screen resolution, I was able to briefly see one of these pictures. It was a silvery, cigar-shaped object with geodesic spheres on either side. There were no visible seams or riveting. There was no reference to the size of the object and the picture was taken presumably by a satellite looking down on it. The object didn't look manmade or anything like what we have created. Because I was using a Java application, I could only get a screenshot of the picture -- it did not go into my temporary internet files. At my crowning moment, someone at NASA discovered what I was doing and I was disconnected.
I also got access to Excel spreadsheets. One was titled "Non-Terrestrial Officers." It contained names and ranks of U.S. Air Force personnel who are not registered anywhere else. It also contained information about ship-to-ship transfers, but I've never seen the names of these ships noted anywhere else.

Nearly  a decade before the Anonymous Guy Fawkes mask became the face of hacking, there was Gary McKinnon. The 46-year-old British hacker allegedly broke into 97 U.S. government computers from his home in London between 2001 and 2002. After ten years living under threat of extradition to the U.S., McKinnon learned Tuesday that he would not be extradited.


Tuesday's extradition block was not a judgement on McKinnon's guilt, but according to British Home Secretary Theresa May, was based on human rights considerations. May said that since McKinnon has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and suffers from depressive illness, "there is such a high risk of him ending his own life that a decision to extradite would be incompatible with his human rights."

Any port in a storm congratulations on your freedom Gary, but your LA privileges have been revoked.

Do you believe world governments are covering up the existence of UFO's

Anything is possible
Heck I've seen them myself

I see them (2.00 / 3)

"I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
I honor the place in you which is
of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace,
when you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
then we are One."  Namaste Friends!

I would very much like to see them, (2.00 / 2)
but think they would not much bother with human governments if they were watching.

It's just remarkably unlikely that we would have much in common. Unless alien life was evolved within a very limited range - say a synchronized evolution of a few thousand years - or that we are in fact at the very end of our own advances, it is just infinitely more likely that they are millions (or tens of millions) ahead or behind us.

What would we do, tens of millions of years from now, with 1940's human governments? Will we still have fragile metal spacecraft that tend to fall out of the sky?

Life outside Earth is certain. Frequency is still highly questionable. Frequency of life on a planet with the long-term stability (and magnetic field on a rocky planet, and perhaps wildly oversized moon, and perhaps other unlikely factors) is much more in question.

The Anthropic Principle applied to our universe - that the reason our laws of physics so amazingly match the range that supports life is that we would not be here, otherwise - may apply to Earth as well. It may be that we do not find intelligent life in this galaxy, and if not we may not in fact ever find it at all.

Despite 1950s SciFi, where words like "star", "planet" and "galaxy" are almost interchangeable, galaxies are far, far apart. Lightspeed remaining a barrier - and it may, forever - it is almost inconceivable that we will cross those distances. Even if we could make it to Andromeda and the odds of intelligent life simply remain very low we may have to search many galaxies, and that is again much less possible.

Love to see them, love to meet them. But I dunno, there may be more Revelations than The Day the Earth Stood Still in the search for UFOs.

As Supervisor Karellen once said... (2.00 / 2)
These reports make Earth sound like it is the crossroads of the Universe.

The flip side of my own argument, (2.00 / 2)
that intelligent life may be incredibly rare increases the odds of it searching for other instances of itself. Tens of millions of years from now I expect that we will in fact look very hard for others like us, so if we are indeed extremely rare we may, like others may, be finding those like us.

I'm basically agnostic on UFOs... (2.00 / 5)
Though I will say I've met some Naval officers who were weird as shit.  So yeah, if there's aliens in our ranks...


I heard on NPR this AM that GB denied the US extradition request.  First time that's happened in a bunch of years.
