Gary McKinnon, the computer hacker who accessed NASA and military computers from 2001 to 2002 in order to uncover classified information about extraterrestrial presence on Earth has been given a ray of hope by president Obama after awaiting extradition for several years to the United States. McKinnon hacked into military computers and discovered evidence of a military cover-up of UFOs and alien technology, and is finally being offered a ray of hope as Obama announced the measures taken would be appropriate for the Asperger’s syndrome sufferer.
McKinnon has since he was awaiting trial been sharing some of what he witnessed while in the databases and made them a matter of public record most notably in an interview he conducted with WIRED magazine in 2006. The information he allegedly found included evidence of “Non-terrestrial officers” operating off-world and zero point energy technology he discovered that had been kept secret by the military. McKinnon also claimed in this interview to have discovered at least one photograph that had been doctored to hide a spacecraft of a model that had never been seen before and evidence that this was a regular practice.
Of course McKinnon’s claims would be next to impossible to prove in court as either to confirm or deny his story would be a matter of plausible national security. To claim that the US did not have certain technology could be a military misstep during a trial for the hacker and to claim that such technology did exist would be even more out of character for whoever had decided to cover it up in the first place. But with McKinnon’s trial coming in the future it is possible that a high profile public trial could raise awareness of the UFO phenomenon and the possibility of a UFO cover-up.
One of the things McKinnon is charged with is not simple espionage, but rather deleting several files that rendered US Naval Weapon’s Station Earle inoperable shortly following the attacks of September 11, 2001. McKinnon admitted to leaving a note on one army computer after shutting down another network saying, “US foreign policy is akin to Government-sponsored terrorism these days ”¦ It was not a mistake that there was a huge security stand down on September 11 last year ”¦ I am SOLO. I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels ”¦ “
Still, McKinnon does have many supporters who suggest that his security breach worked to improve US security in ways that it would not have otherwise taken into consideration. One supporter, David Gillmore best known as a singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the band Pink Floyd, did a piece supporting McKinnon’s plight and calling for support to his cause. McKinnon also made an appearance on the online single album Chicago.
What does fate have in store for Gary McKinnon? Only time will tell. But with his legion of both supporters and critics he is certain to stay in the mainstream of media for quite some time calling attention to both the critical issue of security and UFO disclosure.
