Securing America: Hacker Won’t Be Sent to U.S.
Only days after some long-sought terror suspects were extradited from the U.K. to the U.S., another high-profile extradition is blocked by Britain. The suspect not coming to the States is accused of one of the biggest breaches of U.S. Military networks.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports in our ongoing series on national security:
(Nuland) “The United States is disappointed by the decision to deny Gary McKinnon’s extradition to face long-overdue justice in the United States.”
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, after Britain’s Home Secretary, Theresa May, denied extradition on human rights grounds.
(May) “Mr. McKinnon is accused of serious crimes, but there is also no doubt that he is seriously ill.”
McKinnon has Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism. Psychiatrists say he’d be suicidal if sent to the U.S. for trial. The 46-year-old admits hacking, but says he was just looking for evidence of extraterrestrial life when U.S. Military and NASA computers were breached more than 10 years ago.
McKinnon’s fate is now up to British prosecutors. In the U.S., he would have faced up to 60 years in prison, if convicted.
