Killer of 270 is going free. Qaddaffi is sending his private luxury jet to bring the Libyan hero home.
British oil companies are making Qaddaffi wealthy and in turn he is rewarding the British with contracts.
This world will never change.

We've been just as guilty in cozying to the government that sponsored that bombing.

Wouldn't it be funny if the plane crashed on the way back to Libya?

"But a 2007 review of his case raised the prospect that al-Megrahi had been the victim of a miscarriage of justice, and many in Britain believe that he is innocent.

The Rev. John Mosey, whose daughter Helga, 19, died in the attack, said Wednesday he would be glad to see al-Megrahi return home.

"It is right he should go home to die in dignity with his family. I believe it is our Christian duty to show mercy," he said."

I'm curious how religious wingnuts feel about this.

He's being freed due to health reasons as he has terminal prostate cancer huh?
Poor man.
What about the 200 odd people he killed?
I don't give a crap about the political trade nonsense that's behind this case.
I don't give a crap about this guy either, he should die in prison.

Actually they should have put him if front of a fireing squad.
The sooner we get tougher on terrorism the better.
But that's another topic.........

No, but he may plan another attack that takes hundreds of lives, or worse....

Most of the UK families think he's little more than a scapegoat.
