Peace activist Katya Komisaruk is up before the beak in San Francisco suspected of attacking a surplus Navstar computer with a crowbar at Vandenberg Air Force Base, and as she has said she attacked the computer, located in a remote building, after entering the air base through an open gate, and then hitchhiked some 300 miles to San Francisco where she gave a news conference and surrendered to federal authorities, it looks like an open-and-shut case m’lud: not so, says her attorney, she will plead not guilty on the grounds that her action was a necessity under the Nuremburg principles and other international law and that she acted to prevent a greater evil, a greater illegality – and he has a trump card up his sleeve, because it turns out that the redundant machine she killed was one of those dreadful old IBM 3033 abortions.
