    Re: Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al Megrahi discharged from hospital

    Was/is he a terrorist? Al Megrahi had an appeal in process, new grounds had been found. It may have been more convenient to allow him to leave quietly than to have yet more CIA dirty linen displayed for all to see. Releasing him on health grounds, while he "voluntarily" dropped his appeal, avoids the embarrassment of his being found not guilty.

    How is releasing a terrorist for a idiotic reason like compassionate grounds and what looks like for some oil deal better than letting the terrorist file an appeal?
    "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"

    Because the appeal could well have been successful.

    ****** Pan Am 103 was Qaddafi's Going Away present to Ronald Reagan. It occured on 12/21/88. Anybody believing that Qaddafi doesn't strike back is very foolish . The Bastard has Blood on his hands for 40 years. Some think Sweeedish PM Olaf Palme might have been taken out on his orders.

    He was found guilty. Do you have evidence that clears him of the crime? If so, what is it?

    I think releasing someone on an appeal sounds a lot better than boo hoo we felt sorry for the poor wittle teworist and a oil deal with the terrorist home country. Because of that they made compassion synomous with the word "retard" or "fucken stupid."
