In actual fact all he did was expose some lapses in US security in his search for cover-ups on alien encounters. As a British citizen you would expect McKinnon would receive some support from his home Government.
No, Britain decided that it couldn't care less about the Scot. The US was much more important to them and they couldn't care less if his rights to a fair trial were breached.
Sadly that attitude was also shared by the European Court of Human Rights.
It's clear that in McKinnon's case British citizenship was worth nothing.
Perhaps it's time to give Scotland a shot at representing Scots abroad.
