    Wait, are you vouching for the innocents of a murderer who killed over 200 people?

    Seriously. That makes no sense to me.
    The answer to your question Tucker is that he was convicted on very flimsy evidence, by a panel of judges (not by a jury) and he was most probably innocent. His case was going to go through an appeal before he was released. Personally I think the government was trying to save face - many of the victims' families over here believe he is innocent and an appeal would have brought up a lot of unanswered questions. They didn't even require him to drop his appeal before releasing him - what does that tell you? It tells me that he is innocent and the people who put him behind bars know it.

    Everybody knows that the CIA blew up that plane, not Muslim terrorists.

    It looked like a fix at the time and to many who followed his appeal process, which was looking more likely to be successful as time passed. A compassionate release did not include a requirement to withdraw his appeal, yet conveniently for the various governments, he did so. If his appeal had continued, then his win would have left nobody guilty of the crime.

    You can't make this **** up folks, you can't. I hope Libya has a tickertape parade and a night of "Celebration" in this guys honor. Just to MOCK the Brits for this... PATHETIC "warning". I'm laughing my ass of at the UK, and praying for them.

    It's funny till you realize just how far the Brits have fallen.

    I would think allowing Scotland to free a terrorist due to some retarded compassionate grounds clause and possibly working a oil a deal with the Libyans in exchange for the terrorist release would be offensive to the victims families.
    "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"

    Pete, to hear you tell things, there are no actual terrorists anywhere in the world.
