    Lockerbie Bomber's Release 'Delayed by Pressure from Hillary Clinton'

    Source: Times (UK) (8-17-09)
    The Scottish government appears to have buckled under pressure from the Obama Administration and abandoned its plans to release the Lockerbie bomber this week.

    Senior sources said that there was “no chance” of Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi being sent back to Libya on Wednesday as had been expected.

    The plan to release the convicted terrorist, who has dropped his appeal against conviction, and return him to his native Libya, was thrown out after the intervention of Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State.

    It is understood that Alex Salmond, the First Minister, summoned Kenny MacAskill, the Scottish Justice Secretary, to a meeting on Friday amid fears that the decision for a release on compassionate grounds would lead to an international backlash. Al-Megrahi has advanced prostate cancer.

    Good for Hillary, why should he ever be released. He never cared about all the people he caused to die, and their loved ones who are still grieving, and will be until they die. So if he dies in prison, so what.
