This story from Reuters was kind of funny. The UK won't block the extradition of Gary McKinnon to the US for illegally accessing computers and causing $700,000 worth of damages. McKinnon has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, which is a form of autism. All he did was hack into computers at the Pentagon and NASA. Give the guy a break. It's not like there is anything important going on there. McKinnon claims he was looking for signs of alien life and is described as a "UFO eccentric". The article doesn't report whether he found any or not. If convicted, McKinnon could face up to 70 years in prison.
Government won't stop hacker's extradition to U.S.
