Gorden Brown the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is under severe heat for letting the Lockerbie bomber go free just 8 years later. Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was convicted for the bombing of the Pan Am flight 103 that left London’s Heathrow Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. On Wednesday 21 December 1988, the aircraft flying this route—a Boeing 747-121 named Clipper Maid of the Seas—was destroyed by a bomb, killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew members. Eleven people in Lockerbie, southern Scotland, were killed as large sections of the plane fell in and around the town, bringing total fatalities to 270. As a result, the event has been named by the media as the Lockerbie Bombing.
Gorden Brown insisted it was “completely wrong” and “offensive” to suggest that Megrahi’s release was linked to trade deals over oil and gas. Yes people including myself wonder why would you let Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi go free after being convicted for killing 259 innocent people.
As more probing has gone into the release the prime minister was found budding up to Muammar Gaddafi at the G8 summit in Italy.
What motivation could Gorden Brown have to do a such a insulting thing to the Untied States?
Easy the same as our own corrupted governments motivation for most of our wars and beyond evil doings.
Why else would he do it? Do think other criminals would be let free if they are sick in prison. The conviction was without doubt, maybe the worst crime ever. Being released only 9 years later for killing 259 people.
You can be the judge? Do you think being sick could possibly justify letting someone go after only 9 years for such a crime?
You have to start to wonder if any country leaders have integrity anymore. Or in our case a backbone. Our president Barack Obama seems to not be angry and merly said the people connected to the deaths in the flight are mad. To what I think is a insult the Lockerbie bomber al-Megrahi tells Barack Obama ‘not to worry’ I only have three more months to live.
If this is respectable then it needs to be a law and all criminals should have the same right. I mean if anyone should not get extra rights it’s this criminal.
