    The head of Britain’s GCHQ on Friday apologized for the espionage agency’s treatment of gay people. Robert Hannigan said that GCHQ’s ban on gay people had caused much damage, notably in the case of Alan Turing. The remarks came in a speech at a gathering organized by the LGBT rights group Stonewall. “The fact that it was common practice for decades reflected the intolerance of the times and the pressures of the Cold War, but it does not make it any less wrong and we should apologize for it,” Hannigan said.
