    well, now is the time we ask our buddies who we just helped to step up, we ask France Italy et al to withhold any new funds or freeing of funds and we freeze any Libyan funds we have on account ala Gaddaffi assets etc. unless they hand al-Megrahi over.

    Q- did Obama make this one of the prerequisite's when we began this venture? If not why not, its a no brainer, if so they are going back on an agreement, did France and Italy et al agree or not?



    Libyan Rebels Will Not Extradite Lockerbie Bomber

    Libya's rebel government said Sunday it will not extradite the Libyan man convicted in the 1988 bombing of a U.S.-bound jetliner which killed 270 people when it exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.

    The Transitional National Council's justice minister told reporters in Tripoli that Abdel Baset al-Megrahi already has been tried and convicted in Scotland for bombing Pan Am flight 103. He said the rebels will not hand over Libyan citizens as former leader Moammar Gadhafi did.

    Later Sunday, CNN television reported that al-Megrahi had been found in Tripoli and appeared “near death.”

    (Reuters) - Libya will not extradite Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie airline bombing, a minister in Libya's rebel National Transitional Council (NTC) said on Sunday.

    Near death, well I don't believe it either...but if true, perhaps that is the reason why the rebels won't extradite him?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/29/world/africa/29libya.html

    TRIPOLI, Libya — An official with the rebel government on Sunday ruled out extraditing the former Libyan intelligence officer convicted as the mastermind of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 and released from a Scottish prison two years ago on the ground that he was near death.
    `````
    The rebels’ resolve to protect the former officer may prove only briefly relevant, however. Just hours after the official spoke, CNN reported that Mr. Megrahi was near death at his villa in the capital here, broadcasting images of a frail man lying comatose in an oxygen mask. "

    Got to wonder why we haven't heard he was this close to death before.

    Wow, their appreciation for NATO did not last very long, how much longer until they are burning American flags in the streets?
