What's it matter if he was dying anyway. People die in prison all the time. WTF you gotta do, put a towel on your head and kill people and it's all fair in love and war? This world is one messed up place. Muslims need to be eliminated from the equation.

England "blames" Scotland (as if Scotland were a real country) and so shall I.

Even though Scotland is a part of the United Kingdom, their legal system is separate and distinct from England.

This is true of the USA but not of Scotland, therefore it leads to a common misaprehension by USAmericans. Can you find a case where someone has died in a Scottish prison in recent years, or decades?

The implication of the timeline as expressed in the article might be that there was some kind of conspiracy between BP and (who?) to get an oil deal for the release of Megrahi. If so, they make no explicit allegation and provide no evidence. The article says more about the people who wrote and published the it than anything to do with the Megrahi case.

I think it is natural for many people outside Scotland to think there is no smoke without fire. I see no reason to think that the Scottish government did anything but comply with Scottish law in the usual way.

I am currently inclined to think it was the right decision based on the evidence at the time. I think Mr Salmond makes the point quite well: that what was done was consistent with Scottish law and other cases of compassionate release.

BOYCOTT SCOTCH WHISKEY !

What compassion?

The whole thing was a fraud, perpetrated by BP, through England and 'Scotland.'

The filthy Abdelbaset al-Megrahi is alive and thriving. Are Scots doctors as bad as Scots dentists?

The whole phony 'terminal cancer' diagnosis was bullshit. A made up illness to facilitate a BP contract. Do you turd-soup eaters know what bullshit is? It is just like the horseshit your heads are full of.

BOYCOTT SCOTCH WHISKEY !

CIA Classified Document
Links Pan Am 103 Bomb to Iran
By Graham K. Yost
For years the United States Justice Department, the FBI and the CIA have laid the blame for the Pan Am 103 bombing on Libya's doorstep. But a CIA FBI classified report gives a different view.
The report -- from the following web address ---- http://www.geocities.com/capitolhill/5260/fbi... is enclosed at the end of this article.
In shocking detail, the report describes an Iranian government hierarchy plotting with Palestinian terrorist, Ahmed Jibril. Pan Am investigator, Juval Aviv says Iran paid Jibril $10 million dollars to bring down a United States airliner. Jibril did it by infiltrating a United States drug running operation from Beirut Cyprus Frankfurt London to Detroit. The United States DEA regularly put Lebanese informants on United States bound flights carrying heroin to entrap stateside drug dealers.
DEA, FBI and CIA agents ruthlessly denied a United States Government operation was compromised. Instead, they pointed a finger at Libya. But all the time the CIA/FBI's 7 page report confirmed it was Jibril and Iran not Libya that set off the bomb which killed 270 people.

I see Obama has stopped blaming Bush for everything, and has decided BP is the real villain. How long before he says BP shot JFK and caused global warming? I see he also objects to BP's BRITISH CEO for having a british accent .

Bush ruined our economy and our jobs.

Obama presided over the health finance reforms, and now the regulation of financial markets. The costs of fixing Bush'ss Great Depression/recession are on Bush's tab, even if spent by Obama. The costs of Health and finance reform will be on Obam's tab, even when he leaves office.

As to the rest of your statement, the Bush administration oversaw the licencing abnd placement of the Discoverer Enterprise, the cause of the Gulf gusher/spill.

That it happened was an accident. That the accident was not forseen was clearly on bush's watch, but it does little good to keep repeating a fact that everyone is alrady aware of, except you.

The rest of your post is plain stupid, and you can answer yourself.

BP is the real villain. They drilled too deep with no backup plan.
They killed 13 men, and how many billions of fish, shrimp, corals, seals, &c?

HERE WE GO! Ok shit for brain's, you do just that, boycott everything we sell and fuck you for thinking you can do as you please with us, It show's the american mentallity perfectly,
We might just have to go and find out what exactly did happen see'ing how the american justice system sought to have some fact's classified as secret's relating to the case.
It seem's in this world that if you want to keep your dirty secret's just that, then it's ok because it's an American duty to shit talk other's .. pfffffffffffffffff! what fking bullshit!
It turn's out your government had a very good idea that there was a bomb on that plane but choose to not do anything about it,WHY?
You can take a guess numbnut's since your good at GUESSING!

Do you think flight 103 might have been a 'fk you' for blowing up that iranian airliner?(3rd july 1988) and killing all those innocent people on board?(lockerbie bombing was on 21 December 1988)
But of course it does'nt really matter because they were not american's anyway,I mean 66 children (290 ALL IN)it's nothing compared to the loss of american citizens RIGHT?
You are like playground bully's alway's wanting it your way trying to convince those you beat down that they deserved it.

The point being if the truth did come out you would call it a lie and rather suck on your flag than believe the truth.
I hope the iranian government and the libyan's do tell the truth and give us a final explanation for it all.
You wipe your mouth like a cheap whore and say you did no wrong? like the captain of the vincette who was honoured for killing all those nasty civilian's,He should have been locked up for murder but no! not your gallant hero he get's to be a national treasure.

And you wonder why everyone has had enough of your lying AGRESSIVE bullshit.
Do some research ask some question's or just STFU.
Your intelligence service could have came out with some of the truth's but they declined,
Now everybody's pulling the 'we have nothing more to say on the matter' card.
Get back in your box wrap your flag around you and go eat another chew toy you fking moron.
