PanAm Flt 103 bomber released with full knowledge of Obama administation

According to an article in today’s edition of The Australian, the Obama administration recommended a “compassionate release” of the man responsible for the murder of 270 innocent people when PanAm flight 103 was bombed over Scotland.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was convicted of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Scotland and sentenced to prison in Scotland for his crime. After purportedly falling ill in prison, he was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer and given three months to live last August. Scottish authorities decided to release al-Mehrahi and repatriate him to his native Libya, where he was given a hero’s welcome upon his arrival.

Hero's welcome in Libya for Pan Am Flt 103 bomber

According to a report published in The Australian on August 21, 2009, President Obama called the release by Scottish authorities a “mistake.” The Australian reported Obama as saying, “We have been in contact with the Scottish government, indicating that we objected to this, and we thought it was a mistake.”

Since that time, documents have been released that show that the Obama not only knew about the release plan, but endorsed it as a preferred alternative to prison in Libya. Another lie of this administration has again been exposed.

Furthermore, it has now been confirmed that al-Megrahi’s physicians have given him not three months to live, but say he could easily live for another ten years.

Yet again, a convicted jihadist guilty of the murder of 270 innocent people is once again free, thanks in part to the Obama administration. Is this yet another concession to the Islamic world, as Obama tries to “heal” US relations with Muslims? Should the US surrender justice (the imprisonment of a convicted killer) on the altar of international relations with the Muslim community?
