Gary McKinnon: Hacking the Pentagon
London, June 2006
(Kerry Cassidy) caught up with Gary McKinnon in North
London on my way back from safari in Kenya. The interview
was shot using a hand-held camcorder and uploaded at
4 am UK time, making use of a wireless connection outside
of an office building in downtown Birmingham. This is
what is known as guerilla filmmaking...
We sat in the back of his local pub, in a garden in
the late afternoon. Gary is lucid, eloquent and extremely
intelligent. He made it clear that the real reason
the Americans want to extradite him is not for any
damage he has done, for in fact there wasn't any. They
are pursuing him is because of what he might have seen.
Specifically, documents revealing a list of "Non-terrestrial
officers" and off-world cargo operations somewhere out in space, hinting
at the real possibility of military activities taking place in relation to other
a possibility has got to be mind-blowing to the average
person who barely grasps that there might actually be
aliens from other worlds interacting with earth and governments
in the vicinity of our solar system. Key to the whole
extradition matter is the issue that there were NO passwords
required in order to access this material... and that
a relatively unprofessional hacker, self-taught albeit
brilliant, would be able, using a dial-up modem, to gain
top secret access to NASA files and places as sacrosanct
as the Pentagon.
