The controversy surrounding Gary McKinnon is something to watch. The U.S. wants him due to the embarrassment caused by having supposedly secure military installations breached more than any real damage done.
While his lawyers want to keep him at home and have pretty much thrown every argument in the book out to keep him in the UK.
The question is; did McKinnon hack into the US DOD to look for little green men? Or did he know what he was doing. He knew enough to leave little notes saying that the security sucked. He also was aware enough to plan out the hack attempt by using a blank password scan.
But there are others that feel he is not in a fit mental state. One of these is London Mayor Boris Johnson. In a very emotional editorial he asks President Obama to once and for all drop the extradition efforts and leave McKinnon alone.
