Computerworld reports: "To the U.S., he is a seriously dangerous man who put the nation's security at risk by committing 'the biggest military computer hack of all time.'
But Briton Gary McKinnon says he's just an ordinary computer nerd who wanted to find out whether aliens and UFOs exist."
This is going to be a case worth watching. I doubt if the US government will show him any leniency with a defense like his. I have to admit I find the story very amusing, but I would not like to be in his shoes.
