He has admitted hacking into Pentagon files before and after the September 11 attacks. If convicted he could face 60 years in jail but the review by Mrs May, the sixth home secretary to deal with the long-running case, opens the possibility of prosecution in the UK.

BP withholds oil spill facts -- and government lets it

BP withholds oil spill facts -- and government lets it 18 May 2010 BP, the company in charge of the rig that exploded last month in the Gulf of Mexico, hasn't publicly divulged the results of tests on the extent of workers' exposure to evaporating oil or from the burning of crude over the gulf, even though researchers say that data is crucial in determining whether the conditions are safe. Moreover, the company isn't monitoring the extent of the spill and only reluctantly released videos of the spill site that could give scientists a clue to the amount of the oil in gulf. BP's role as the primary source of information has raised questions about whether the government should intervene to gather such data and to publicize it and whether an adequate cleanup can be accomplished without the details of crude oil spreading across the gulf.
