    This is irrelevant. Megrahi was freed on compassionate release by the Scottish executive, not as part of a prisoner exchange deal brokered by the UK government.

    These leaked letters refer to the agreement which made Megrahi eligible for transfer as part of the prisoner exchange deal which was signed years ago. Megrahi was not released under that agreement.

    Sorry, but if it's too much effort for you to prove something as ridiculous as you claimed, it's just dismissed as a red herring. Or maybe it's that there is no proof, only opinion not based on any, you know, facts?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

All this was is a modern day example of negotiating with terrorists, and that's exactly how the terrorists will view it. Oil will become the future currency, as if it isn't already.
    Western Europe has been whoring for oil for quite some time, now. Their approach has been to become more like those who have the oil, and to represent their interests and prejudices.

    THe United States has taken a different approach -- one more direct than indirect -- but the compromizes of ideals for that beloved crude are no less.

    I knew it wasn't on compassionate release and Westminister had a hand to play. I called it from the beginning.
    MacAskill should not still be in his job. The whole point of being an SNP member is basically NOT to leave own's nation looking foolish by allowing Westminister to pull your puppet-strings.

    And yeah, I suppose it was too much to hope this release was completely based on compassionate grounds. I defended it on those grounds. I certainly don't defend it on these grounds, however. I wonder how this news is affecting families of the Lockerbie dead, that the man responsible for the deaths of their relatives has gone free so the coffers of the government can be filled.

    The title of the thread should be "UK pisses and ****s all over the victims of terrorist for oil"
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So you have no proof. It seems as though I've exposed another red herring. But I knew that before I posted asking for proof.
