    It has now been six months since we were outraged over the release of Abdel Basset al-Megrahi and the intrigue surrounding the decision to grant him his (relative) freedom. Megrahi is better known as “The Lockerbie Bomber.” The UK Telegraph now reports.
    Megrahi, is now living in a spacious two-story villa with his wife and their five grown-up children in a prosperous suburb of Tripoli, the Libyan capital.

    The property has a spacious garden and an area where the family erects a large tent to entertain visitors for celebrations.

    The Megrahis, who are part of a prominent tribe, are well off and it is understood that his family was paid substantial compensation by the Libyan Government after he was jailed for life.
    When Megrahi was granted his release on August 20th of last year it was on humanitarian terms as he was terminally ill and expected to die within three months.


    President Obama was outraged by the decision of the Scottish government to release the Lockerbie bomber and loudly condemned the action. Kenny MacAskill, the Scottish Justice Secretary was lionized by the media and singled out for blame although according to CNN.
    He had talked to families of British and U.S. victims, U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, British authorities, Libyan officials, and al Megrahi himself, declassified Scottish government records show.

    ...media reports that the Scottish government may have released Abdel Basset al Megrahi after serving eight years of his 27-year sentence because of a desire to improve commercial ties between Britain and Libya.

    “Specifically, the committee should explore: Whether commercial interests played a role in the decision to release Mr. Megrahi,” Lautenberg wrote.
    Six months have passed and there has been no Senate hearing. The only action taken by the Senate was to unanimously condemn the release in a remarkable show of bi-partisanship. There has been no further inquiry into the complicity of Hilary Clinton, Eric Holder or President Obama in this matter and Megrahi continues to live in luxury, although he is still said to be gravely ill. The 270 persons (including 189 Americans) who died by Megrahi’s hand should not be so easily forgotten.

    ...Maybe America should ask the Mossad to get the savage killer.

    Imagine what this is doing to the families of those killed by this scumbag.

    I'm sure Mossad would be more than happy to oblige.

    Talk about being bamboozled. The Scotts aren't as canny as they think they are. Obviously.

    Is he really terminally ill or was that just a ploy for sympathy?

    Well for starters there's more than a little doubt that Megrahi was responsible for the bombing, and secondly what right does the U.S. Senate have to say anything over this matter? The U.S. Senate has no right to get involved in the internal affairs of the UK or Scotland.
