They also referred to it as “the biggest military computer hack of all time”."

10 years is a long time for an extradition battle. I wonder how many millions have been spent on court fees...

I personally think that the UK law is a little stupid, because we don't have a written constitution, so things change all the time. In the US, citizens simply cannot be extradited if the crime is committed on US soil. The same should be the case in the UK.
