Quote of The Day: Kevin Poulsen

"According to his lawyers, the United States offered McKinnon a deal of six months to a year in U.S. federal custody, followed by repatriation by the U.K., where he'd be eligible for parole after six months. McKinnon turned it down, then went running to the U.K. courts whining that the big bad Americans were trying to extort him into pleading guilty. You think? That's what a plea bargain is, slick."

- Kevin Poulsen, writing on the Wired "Threat Level" Blog, about the news of Gary McKinnon's unsuccessful extradition appeal.
