The only person ever convicted for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 has finally died in Libya. He was released from a Scottish prison in 2009 after BP, the world’s largest energy company, convinced someone in the UK to send Abdelbaset back to Libya on claims of advanced prostate cancer – a bribe which allowed the company to begin utilizing their previously contracted oil drilling sites off the coast of Libya. It was a huge scandal and will remain so.
Surely the word “no” spoken from Obama or the Brits would have kept Abdelbaset in prison in Scotland. Instead, Obama was the recipient of over $77,000 in campaign donations in 2008 (and the DNC millions more) from BP. Obama requested if Abdelbaset was going to be sent to Libya, he be allowed to live at home, rather than in a Libyan prison. Doesn’t make sense, does it?
British doctors said Megrahi had only 3 months to live. That was mid-2009. Today we are told he died of “cancer.” The disgrace is that Adbelbaset al-Megrahi was NEVER treated as a terrorist – he received Halal food while in prison in an area dubbed “Gaddafi’s Cafe.”
Over the skies of Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988, Pan Am Flt. 103, 259 people died, 11 of them on the ground. Thirty-five students of Syracuse University were among the dead.
