Here is the latest. Lybian officials reportedly paid doctors to give a diagnosis of 3 months or less.

Trust me I dont blame the Scottish citizens. Just like people around the world shouldnt blame American citizens for all the misdeeds our government has done. It just makes you sick that rulers can control us and do whatever they want in our name and get away with it. Here we are debating healthcare, wars, economy etc. but right now it doesnt matter because the powers that be will do whatever they want to do even if we dont like it!

I keep hearing claims that this guy is innocent, that he has proof and is going to show it, that there was a miscarriage of justice.

Well, he's free now. If he is innocent, then he needs to start bringing the evidence and continuing with his appeal, and quick. A Scottish court unanimously decided this joker did it, if he's innocent, I wanna see the friggin proof. I hear alot of innuendo and speculation, hearsay and such, but so far, I haven't read anything solid yet, and I'm still waiting.

Until someone provides some reasonable doubt, this joker is guilty, and it's sick that they released him, especially if the severity of his illness is BS.

Its not the fault of the Scottish or British in general, but the fault of some seriously f-ed up individuals in the high places.

Hi Skadi, I fear I'm with those protesting his innocence. Why? You know me, I've got to have some reasons. In no particular order...

  1. I knew someone who was on the Lockerbie flight between Frankfurt and Heathrow. I saw him shortly afterwards and he told me he'd sat next to a US serviceman on his way home for Christmas. He was very worried because he'd heard rumours there was a bomb on the plane. My friend is a sober guy, he doesn't make things up. That put me on alert from then on and still makes me wonder about it.
  2. The British satirical and investigative magazine Private Eye did really good coverage of it right from the start, and I have been a steady subscriber since the seventies. They broke the news (breaking again recently) that the Scottish police were disturbed by the antics of American gentlemen of uncertain provenance who arrived suspiciously quickly at the crash site and allegedly tampered with evidence.
  3. There seem to have been drugs on the plane. What that means, I don't know. It's another item in a very confusing mix.
  4. Initial reports suggested a Syrian-backed Palestinian cell, and that would fit for a revenge motive for the Syrian jumbo downed by the USS Vincennes.
  5. ...those reports were then downplayed in what looked suspiciously like a deal to allow Gaddaffi back into the "international community".
  6. The night before the crash, the PanAm luggage area at Heathrow was "professionally" (whatever that means, it was in the BBC report) broken into. There are also stories of luggage handlers testifying that they loaded luggage that answered the description of the case supposed to have contained the bomb.
  7. The trial was, IIRC, not held in Scotland but in a special US camp somewhere into which the jury etc. were brought. This allowed some control over the conditions. The testimony of the main incriminating witness was allegedly bought. It had the look and feel of a show trial.

The main thing about releasing Al-Megrahi is that it prevents him from appealling and from these and other embarrassing disclosures to be brought about in open court.

The rest, IMO (i.e., all the fuss about boycotting Scotland and outraged reactions), is smoke and mirrors.

I heard today that it could have been brought down from anti personal misiles in diplomatic containers that accidentaly exploaded in the hull.At the trial it was said that millions of needles had been found in the wreckage,these could have been flechettes from these rockets

Perhaps this plane was being used to smuggle arms for whatever reasons

Now it looks as if New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg is opening an inquiry into this situation. BP has quite a web of deceit going on.

Senator Lautenberg wrote in a letter to the committee’s chairman:

According to recent news reports, BP is about to begin drilling for oil in Libya’s Gulf of Sidra. During negotiations of this oil exploration plan in 2007, the oil giant may have encouraged the release of Mr. Megrahi to help close the deal.
