London - (X-Files Mess): An extradition appeal hearing was told today that Pentagon cyber-hacker Gary 'Indiana' McKinnon had been groomed by Tory leader David Cameron's spin doctor Andy Coulson.
McKinnon faces 100 years in the slammer if convicted in the USA after causing $10 billion of damage to US military computers.
Coulson, 69, swears blind he had no involvement in phone-hacking when editor of the News Of The Screws.
He also denies paying McKinnon thousands of pounds to steal the security tracking codes for celebrities' mobiles from the CIA's covert UK wiretap program whose archives are stored in Pentagon vaults.
McKinnon's plea of temporary insanity by virtue of chronic cocaine and alcohol addiction may buy him another few weeks grace in Blighty.
