International pop star Sting is the latest British celebrity to throw 
his weight behind 9/11 truther and admitted Pentagon hacker Gary 
McKinnon, the U.K. man who's still fighting tooth and nail to avoid a 
U.S. trial on computer hacking charges.

"It's a travesty of human rights that Gary McKinnon finds himself in 
this dreadful situation," the former Police front man told the Mail on 
Sunday.

"The U.S. response in relation to the true nature of Gary's crime is 
disproportionate in the extreme," Sting said, referring to the extremely 
disproportionate response of charging a 42-year-old man with computer 
intrusion, when all he did was intrude into some computers.

Prosecutors say McKinnon broke into more than 90 unclassified Pentagon 
systems in 2001 and 2002, allegedly crashing some of them. He has said 
he was looking for proof of a UFO cover-up, though he left this message 
in an Army computer in 2002:  "U.S. foreign policy is akin to 
government-sponsored terrorism these days ... It was not a mistake that 
there was a huge security stand down on September 11 last year ... I am 
SOLO. I will continue to disrupt at the highest levels."
