    Never got why the release of the Lockerbie bomber was such a big deal when the US has been honoring terrorists for the past couple of decades.

    You do not think releasing the terrorist for BS reasons in exchange for a oil deal is pissing on the victims of that terrorist? The British government might as well be installing urinals and toilets on the graves of the victims and selling tickets to terrorist sympathizers and terrorists. The UK basically said "F-YOU Lockerbie Bomber victims".
    Is it more immoral all the time? Would you argue that to release a terrorist who killed one American is worse than anything else that could be possibly done to a foreign country?

    I agree with 95% of what you are saying its just your moral absolutism and potty mouth that keep me from respecting you more, thats all I'm saying.

    He could not because they "government" was delaying any appeal and retrial constantly. Even after the Scottish Judicial Review court came out with a ruling citing there most likely was a miscarriage of justice in the case.. even then was the appeal process delayed and stopped by the Government on every technicality in the book and on national security grounds. No wonder considering how the public available "evidence" has been picked to pieces.

    It is odd, that one of the only conditions that was set for his release was that he stopped all appeals.. odd no? Quick way to end that case no?

    Was everyone one of these people asked or did they just survey a small percentage? And even if they were this still does not change the fact the UK basically left a deuce on the victims of that terrorist.
    I dont know, but many of the British victims relatives have continued to back a full investigation into the bombing and have stated publicly that they do not believe that he did it. Just google it..I am basing my comment on many interview's on British TV with various British relatives. More than often an American relative was on the other side of the fence so to say in said interviews.

    Oh boy another Leftist version of a Birther-tard. This war is for oil, Bush stole the elections, Bush went Awol, Bush is a e-vile dictator, Bush is a war monger, This war is for Haliburton, Bush lied people died. When will you people grow up and quit believing conspiracy retards? Bush did not lie.Every practically politician even before Bush was in office said Saddam had WMDs, Saddam has a history of using WMDs, WMDs were found in Iraq(according to wikileaks), Saddam made everyone think he had WMDs. So logic would dictate that Saddam had WMDs. Why is that hard for you to conspiracy loons to understand that? I know Bush is supposedly a conservative so you will buy what ever some loony leftist conspiracy-tard says about Bush?
    LOL yea right.. ... funny how you dont want to get to the truth of the matter.. and blindly follow the governments case on this.. do governments not lie and cover up and frame people ? Are you that naive? Have you ever sat down and read about the huge inconsistencies in the case, both evidence wise and procedure wise? It stinks of a cover-up.

    The worthy committee made it up, since nobody who was actually involved could be bothered to attend their kangaroo court.
    Don't work out, work in.
