Computer hacker Gary McKinnon pled guilty in the UK in order to avoid extradition to the US, where he could be tried as a terrorist for hacking NASA computers in his quest for classified UFO information (at least Guantanamo is closing!)
P2P Net reports that the final decision hasn't been made by the English courts yet, but they let McKinnon?s lawyers know that if their client pled guilty under the "Misuse of Computers Act," and was thus prosecuted and sentenced in the UK, it was unlikely that he would sent to American to stand trial since in the UK (as in the US), you can't be tried twice for the same crime.
For all of us who abhor UFO secrecy, it's whew! for now.
What is a science website?even an edge science website?doing reporting on UFOs? Well, we think that REAL science could and SHOULD be done on this subject (and whenever it is, we report it!)
