Hacker Gary McKinnon loses appeal - will be jailed for trying to expose ufo truth!

This is very sad new guys,
According to Gary's own comments (posted before)"no damage was ever done to the US" and the US prosecutors basically "fabricated this" to ensure that he was prosecuted. The real reason the US may want him is for hacking into the NASA database with unedited UFo images.
Here's his own comments from an earlier interview if u haven't seen it(posted before)

Here's what the 'media' are saying about his appeal:

A British hacker who broke into U.S. military computers looking for evidence of UFOs lost another extradition appeal today in London's High Court.
Gary McKinnon, of London, remains free on bail and could appeal the decision to the House of Lords, according to a High Court spokesman.

The Briton is accused of deleting data and accessing information on 97 U.S. military and NASA computers between February 2001 and March 2002. He was charged in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and could face up to 60 years in prison.

McKinnon challenged an initial U.S. extradition order in May 2006. His attorney fought the order on the grounds that his client could be held as an "enemy combatant," a status the U.S. created for terrorism suspects. U.K. Home Secretary John Reid approved the extradition order, however, and McKinnon appealed again.

He freely admits to hacking into the computers but says he never caused any harm. U.S. officials, however, say his probes caused $700,000 in damages and the shutdown of critical computers used by the military after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He said he was looking for information on UFOs.

The soft-spoken McKinnon said he timed his hacking when no one was working at the U.S. offices. On one occasion, he miscalculated the time zones, however, and someone using a computer that McKinnon had hacked noticed the cursor moving on its own. Rate this posting:
