Either way we do not need him... Lock him him up for life...
I'm calling BS on this guy. If the US Government knew he had hacked into the ISS (as he claimed), he'd be in jail with no access to any IT equipment until he's dead. As for his claims regarding hacking into aircraft controls, including flying the plane "sideways," well, I'm also calling BS since there's no way the PF would not notice the inputs this guy has claimed to have made.
Brian Williams reported that it was all true...
Wanted to ask this question in relation to the original report about the aircraft "hack"... Assuming he did make one of the engines increase it's power, wouldn't the autopilot correct for the "adverse yaw" and if it couldn't then wouldn't the AP disconnect and create a slew of aircraft logs that would be amply documented?
He's not full of BS, the FBI is. He's said pretty much nothing about all of this sh**. He hasn't been charged with squat. He's been working on this stuff for 5 years. The FBI is the one making this news.
