The British man who hacked NASA computers and ‘found photo evidence of UFOs’ claims they’ll ‘never tell truth’.
US officials accused the 57-year-old of the ‘biggest military computer hack of all time’ – I mean, it surely can’t exactly have been easy.
It’s claimed he hacked into dozens of their computers, including 16 NASA ones alone.
And last week, the space agency released a report about unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs) – which is what they say instead of UFOs – and said they didn’t have enough data to make definitive conclusions of extra-terrestrial life.
But McKinnon is not happy with it, slamming NASA as the ‘National Association of Space Actors’ to The U.S. Sun.
He said: “As usual, they said nothing, on balance.
“And when pressed they just repeated their non-committal statement.
“We’ll never get any truth from military institutions, which NASA is, regardless of the fact that it pretends to be a civilian institution.”
LADbible has contacted NASA for comment.
McKinnon, who now runs an SEO company in Leicester, admitted to hacking into the top secret computers back in 2002 and spent 10 years fighting extradition to stand trial in the US.
But good old Theresa May, who was Home Secretary at the time, swooped in and blocked his extradition in 2012 on human rights grounds.
When the bloke hacked the military and government sites from his London flat, he said he’d leave little messages for them.
On one military website, he says he wrote: “Your security is really crap.”
It’s kind of funny to be fair to him.
McKinnon also claims that when he hacked a NASA computer, he found ‘raw’ satellite photos from a space centre which showed a ‘smooth cigar shaped craft with geodesic domes above earth’.
However, he alleged that just as he was about to see the full image, a NASA employee rapidly disconnected the image.
McKinnon claimed he could have viewed thousands of other images if his internet connection wasn’t so slow.
He told The Sun last year: “It’s a fact that there are objects we don’t understand flying around in our skies, it’s also a fact that there are scientific, intelligence and military departments that study these objects.”
At the time of his hacking, McKinnon became obsessed with it, admitting to the BBC he ‘wasn’t looking after myself’.
He admitted: “I almost wanted to be caught, because it was ruining me. I had this classic thing of wanting to be caught so there would be an end to it.”
