Conventional Wisdom says that al-Megrahi doesn't actually have Prostate Cancer. That it is a ruse to release him. I am beginning to agree with that.
LONDON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - "Scotland, unaccustomed to the hot spotlight of international diplomacy, fought to justify its release of the Lockerbie bomber on Sunday, after a U.S. official angrily accused the country of rewarding terrorism.
Scotland, which is part of the United Kingdom but has its own devolved powers, including its own parliament and a separate legal system, has been under assault since deciding on Thursday to free Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, the Libyan who carried out the Lockerbie airline bombing, on compassionate grounds.
The head of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, Robert Mueller, wrote to Scotland's justice minister on Saturday accusing him of making a mockery of the rule of law and saying his much-criticised decision "rewards a terrorist"."
Only time will tell if this was a ruse to release al-Megrahi. We should expect to hear of his death in 3-6 months. Let us hope that it will come sooner.
