A Scottish Travesty
By now, it’s well-known that Scotland released the man who was responsible for the bombing of Pan-Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie on Dec. 21, 1988. This man was responsible for the deaths of 270 people, and served less than 12 days behind bars for each of their deaths. His release, based on the fact that he has prostate cancer, has been nothing short of an international farce.
The problem begins with the Scottish justice system, which released this man only 8 years after he was incarcerated. Not to mention the fact that they ignored the international aspect of this man’s release:
The Times of London reported that Gadhafi’s private jet had been sent to take al-Megrahi home.
You can’t make this up.
The connection with the U.S. has to do with the fact that the majority of the people on that plane were Americans. Their surviving relatives are still living with the fact that this man was responsible for tearing apart their families.
There’s not much that President Obama could have done in this situation. However, if I were him, I would definitely be on the phone screaming at that one-eyed Scottish idiot who has remained largely silent on this whole issue.
For Scotland’s sake, there had better not be an ulterior motive for this man’s release.
