Washington - (The Third Man, Twice Removed): Today's arrest of top NASA astrophysicist Stewart David Nozette has been linked to the FBI's bugging of Pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon according to a Georgetown rap sheet.
Nozette, 52, was busted after passing on McKinnon's tweets to what he thought was a top Mossad intelligence operative.
But the spook turned out to be French Hadron Collider physicist Adlène Hicheur, 32, who was charged with terrorism offences by a Paris judge last week.
French investigators said today that he is a North African Al-Qaeda branch stooge who told McKinnon the Collider is an alien retro-engineered artefact salvaged from the Great Pyramid of Giza.
And in Washington DC a crude Enigma machine-like device was found in Nozette's locker which FBI sources reckon was used in the deciphering of McKinnon's instructions on hacking the Pentagon computer.
