Doesn’t it seem like just the other day President Obama criticized our friends across the pond for releasing the Lockerbie bomber, al-Megrahi, to return to Libya?
“I think all of us here were surprised, disappointed and angry about the release of the Lockerbie bomber,’ he said.
‘We should have all the facts, they should be laid out there. I have confidence Prime Minister Cameron’s government will be co-operative.
‘The decision ran contrary to how we should be treating terrorists.”
That was President Obama in a White House press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron on July 21, 2010. What a difference a week makes, not to mention independent journalism:
“THE US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be “far preferable” to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.”
