Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'


www.timesonline.co.uk

The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.
Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards

Hmm, well now we know the real story. Am I outraged at the UK government? Not really, because I would expect our government to do the same thing. Do I condone it? No.
We live in a sad world where anything can be bought with money, including freedom. We as ordinary citizens have no power anymore, we are held hostage to whatever our "rulers" wish to do, as long as they hold the power and money.

If this is true, it will be the end of Gordon Brown's Government. Bowing to financial interests to release a killer of hundreds of innocents. Great move there...........

I'm surprised your surprised; the devil's tears are indeed crocodile ones.

It started with Blairs deal-in-the-desert. Within hours, BP, BG & Shell were tendering bids.

I watched the Scottish emergency meeting and the turnip bloke (Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond) kept on saying it was his decision alone...what a load of BS. He just said that to make him a scape-goat to grease the machinations that went on behind closed doors.

Why else are they also fighting wars in dust bowl countries like Iraq and Afghanistan? Google the TAP pipeline!!! Helmund province is the primary area where the pipeline will feed through from the Caspian Sea. It must be protected at all costs, hence the new General saying we'll be there for 40 years.

Again, it's all smoke and mirror bullcrap.

p.s. what about compassion for the 270+ who died @ Lockerbie. That was the turnips excuse for releasing Megrahi, as he said he only had three months to live...yeah right. I bet he lives for years.

p.p.s. the Libyan election would look good for Gaddafi, showing his prowess for negotiating with the infidels of the West

There are just hints, mind you, look for it on the sunday talk shows that Brown was pressured by the White House. Just rumours, you understand, nothing substantiated yet.

Do you believe they invaded Iraq and Afghanistan for oil now? If not now when?

Yeah OP but the problem is...America didnt release him and honestly...if it wasnt an attack on mostly Americans- I doubt he wouldn't be freed. But because this case strikes home and is quite an influencial case- he wouldnt have walked.

If he didn't have a terminal illness and didn't look as if a slight of wind could blow him over- I'd be even more upset. But the man is running on ticking time and his death is within reach where he will experience his true justice for what he did. Let him enjoy a slice of keesh in his home before his cancer eats away at his organs and he dies a slow painful and untreated death. He deserved to rot in prison- no doubt about that. But now that he's out... Lets look forward to mother nature taking over the reigns of justice and giving him more pain than anyone on that flight or anyone's families of those on the flight could and have experienced.

I'm ashamed as usual in Gordon...The man is only interested in himself rather than anyone else. He looked past how deep this case was and simply decided amongst himself that it was necessary.

Ally's only on the battle field. In the real world, its every man for himself.

Of course, its been obvious from the get go, along with some other reasons.

There is evidence to suggest that it was the CIA who planted the bomb. I think it was on the verge of coming out very soon that he is innocent.

Although they were forced into taking responsibility for the outcome of this case, the Scottish Judiciary made the right decision.

I have family and friends that live and work near the witness Tony Gauci, he is the man who had pointed out and identified the suspect. The rumor is that he is not a credible man, the nicest I heard of him is that he was naive or stupid, others have said he is immoral and not to be trusted, take from that what you will.

History no doubt teaches us that we should not believe the official story off hand, OK there may be evidence, but where did it come from?

What happened was truly tragic, I a feel for those lives that have been lost or destroyed. However, this does not stop the fact that we should stop searching for the truth. There were many people with many motives who could have been responsible for what happened.

I do not think we will hear the last of the allegations. I understand that I have not lost someone in that way and cant truly feel what the families might be going through at this point. However, it is my perception that compassion for a dying man should be held in high regard, and as there is some doubt to whether this man is responsible I think it was right to set him free, on them grounds. Having said that, if he is guilty and was used in some sort of trade deal, especially for oil, it is disgusting and the ultimate disrespect for the families of the victims.

Some times things fall into the gray area, I just hope that the families do not suffer anymore, they have been through so much.

Peace

Seeing how the US State Dept is a subsidiary of Saudi Arabia, it would not surprise me at all if the US was behind the release of the Libyan.
Especially considering that there isn't an Islamist that Obama doesnt' like.

BTW: I have no doubt that the infiltration of the Pentagon by Islamists will be complete under Obama

Also, there are reports that the Scotts relied upon a double-agent doctor to tell them about the guy's cancer and that the guy may not even have cancer. That would be too perfect if that was the case. Revealing how completely stupid the West is.

I had thought this too, regarding the doctor. However, it seems many doctors have had to agree before the decision was made, again that is the official party line though.


I just hope all these people who plot and scheme get their just desserts.

Peace

According to the stories I read, the Scots relied upon ONE doctor only.

Are we suprised! This UK government is probably one of the most corrupt governments in UK history, just take a look at the continuing Lord Mandelson saga. The UK government has not even had the decency to be straight about it, they have bottled it lying blame squarly on The Scottish parliament for the release of the libyan. Distraction, redirection, and division is the policy for this government

Lockerbie bomber al-Megrahi sent home 'on the advice of just ONE doctor'



Fresh doubts over the decision to release the Lockerbie bomber were raised last night.

It emerged that the doctor who advised that Abdel Baset Ali al-Megrahi had fewer than three months to live was not an expert in prostate cancer.

This advice was instrumental in persuading the Scottish government to release him on compassionate grounds, and allow him to return to Libya - where he received a hero's welcome.

Under Scottish law, the Justice Secretary can consider releasing people if they are thought to be fewer than three months from death.

But the official report on Mr Megrahi's health, which was released yesterday, said that no prostate cancer specialist 'would be willing to say' how long he had left to live.

Instead, Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill relied on the 'opinion' of an unnamed doctor, believed to be a GP, who had no experience in terminal prostate cancer.

The report to Mr MacAskill, of the Scottish National Party, was written by Dr Andrew Fraser, director of health and care with the Scottish Prison Service.

It said: 'Whether or not the prognosis is more or less than three months, no specialist would be willing to say.'

But the report contains a reference to an unnamed doctor who 'dealt with him prior to, during and following the diagnosis of metastatic prostate cancer'.

It added: 'Having seen him during each of these stages, his clinical condition has declined significantly over the last week [26 July to 3 August].

'The clinical assessment, therefore, is that a three month prognosis is now a reasonable estimate for this patient.'

Labour seized on the report, saying it showed that the SNP had believed someone who was not an expert and had not taken into account the fact that prostate cancer specialists had declined to give a view.

Dr Richard Simpson, a Labour MSP and former member of the British Association of Urological Surgeons' prostate cancer group, said: 'The Scottish Government has misrepresented the medical evidence.

'The Justice Secretary chose to disregard the advice of specialists and release al-Megrahi on the advice of one doctor, who we now know was not a specialist.

'At the very least, Kenny MacAskill should have sought a second opinion confirming the patient's prognosis from a specialist in palliative care. That he did not do so showed a disregard for due process and the significance of the decision.'

British Petroleum seems to have pretty good control over the Gordon Brown and Kenny MacAskill governments. Well, at least we now have validation that UK and American lives are only worth a few barrels of Libyan oil to the British and Scottish governments. Very reassuring, isn't it?

To add another spin onto the case, Megrahi is promising to provide details that is intended to prove his innocence, his lawyer is flying out to meet with him to discuss how best to proceed next week..

Thus far the his comments have been aimed at the British Government, but his words implicate the US government.


"My feeling is that the UK Government will avoid a public inquiry because it would be a headache for them and the Americans and it would show how much the Americans have been involved and it would also cost them a lot of money which they may not want to spend because of the recession."


This is either a nasty rouse to keep this in the spotlight and cause as much upset and damage as possible or prove his innocence.. Personally he's said what he has now, so it is time to put up or shut up.

Where are the leaked letters??? Hmmm, before you believe this you might want to look at the evidence, or ask for the evidence to be presented!!

I would not be at all surprised if this was just a rumour, and any supposed letter has been purposfully misinterpretated in order to write this story.

I'm not saying there definitely wasn't an oil for release deal, as if there were I wouldn't be surprised at that either.... it's just that a letter that has been leaked, if it exists, must be in the possession of somebody who can show it to us. I cannot see why any newspaper in possession of this wouldn't publish it... they would be dying to publish it!!
