    One of the wonderful lies floating around here was that the White House "pressured" Scotland into releasing the Lockerbie bomber. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    I don't know what fucking conservative fantasy land put up that vile sack of shit.

    Also here's the truth about your hero George W. Bush.

    How Gaddafi Friended Bush, Blair, and Berlusconi - The Daily Beast

    The same guy who said this about Osama Bin Laden.

    Here's a clue.

    The way to stop terrorists is to:

    A. Kill the terrorists.
    B. Remove the conditions that create them.

    Umm, who said that Obama approved of his release? No conservative I know said that. I remember EVERYONE condemning that stupid action.

    Strawman much?

    The left - like sallow - make shit up and then it becomes their 'truth'. Some right wing blogger makes some half assed comment and, hey presto, that become what all conservatives think.

    Pity them. They are not smart enough to cope in the real world... so they have created their own fantasy one. Sadly, they try to live their fantasy along side those of us who live in the real one.

    I KNOW I did. Obama absolutely approved of the Lockerbie bomber release. So let's clear this up right away. I have been VERY VOCAL in exposing obama's role in pressuring Scotland.

    Barack Obama must also answer questions over the Lockerbie bomber's release – Telegraph Blogs

    The Lockerbie scandal has just become even murkier. According to a Sunday Times report yesterday “the US government secretly advised Scottish ministers that it would be “far preferable” to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.”

    | The Australian

    Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.

    The intervention, which has angered US relatives of those who died in the attack, was made by Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, a week before Megrahi was freed in August last year on grounds that he had terminal cancer

    ^Proof that people will believe anything if it confirms their bias.

    Did you bother to dive into that pool any deeper?
