"In 2001, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, a Libyan, was convicted of
involvement in the bombing and sentenced to life imprisonment. On 20
August 2009, the Scottish Government released him on compassionate
grounds to return to Libya as he was suffering from terminal prostate
cancer and had a life expectancy of less than 3 months."
So it would seem the Lockerbie bomber was released to seal a deal with
the UK representing BP to access Libyan oil. $23 Billion Dollars
A slap in the face to America and all the victims families.
Boycott BP anyone ?
I got no problems taking it out on BP.
