Should we nominate this guy for a Jefferson award?

24) Hacker "left note on US army computer"
Guardian [UK]

"A British man accused of hacking into the US military computer system
left a note on an army computer saying US foreign policy 'is akin to
government-sponsored terrorism,' a court heard today. Gary McKinnon's
note continued: 'It was not a mistake that there was a huge security
stand-down on September 11 last year ... I am SOLO [the name by which
he was known online]. I will continue to disrupt at the highest
levels,' the court was told." (07/27/05)


  Even if you see the U.S. government's foreign policy as akin to terrorism (a very big stretch in my view), do you really think it laudable that this guy apparently caused military security to be relaxed on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks?
