    Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'

    The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

    Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

    The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

    The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests

    I knew it wasn't on compassionate release and Westminister had a hand to play. I called it from the beginning.

    It was a "No Brainer" from the beginning. The damage is done... Now,,,let's see if Kadfi-Duck "Honors" his part of the bargain.

    Good luck.

    You're the Proof that you exist. No,,,I'm not trying to insult you. There's no reason to, is there? If so, I missed it.

    Take care.
