Ever seen the movie Munich? That comes to mind right about now, they had the right idea.

It is unbelievable, I can't even begin to wrap my mind around their rationalization of it.... They let him go on "grounds of compassion". Just like the compassion he showed to the 270 he blew up. They didn't get to spend their last minutes at home, why should he?

I guess a life sentence doesn't mean what I thought it meant.

Some Government or a Private concern (ala Blackwater) should track the Ba$turd down and execute him, just as he did to the people on 103.

Sometimes in the real world a trial is not justified or necessary for the truly evil among us!

What kind of "professional" crew would agree to fly him to Libya knowing what he did?

Just to play devil's advocate for a second here...

There are some pretty serious doubts out there about his guilt.

The release could just be politics. Libya paid blood money to get out from under sanctions after all, and maybe sending this guy home to die (which is done with some frequency in Scotland, 3 months to live being the condition I believe) is a move to gain favors from Libya. Or, equally plausible, a condition of his release was dropping the appeal. Perhaps that appeal would have produced some info that would greatly embarrass the governments that prosecuted him, or would reveal secrets best left secret. Google the PFLP-GC and a man named Abu Talb, for instance.

I don't have a dog in this fight, in that I didn't know any Lockerbie victims. Within the next couple of days however, two of my family came home for XMas on PA103. It could just as easily have been their flight. So you'd better believe I want whoever did it to pay. This could be a simple case of a genuine compassionate release, about which I have very mixed feelings, or it could be one of those cases where governments decide that justice must take a back seat to policy. We may never know.

It is my understanding terrorists (or "people who facilitate man-made disasters" for the Obama crowd) like to be martyrs. They like to be noticed for their deeds because it is not necessarily the deed but the message. If a terrorist (or "person who facilitates a man-made disaster) denies he did something it kind of defeats the whole purpose. In the case of Lockerbie, I would imagine a terrorist (or person who facilitates a "man-made disaster") would be salivating over claiming responsibility....unless it was a state sponsored terrorist act (or "man-made disaster"). Then I would expect denial and if that is not possible, a fall guy. So, as to his guilt, I don't know. Just my 2 cents.

Mamma- gfys- some liberals are pussies- not all. Go pound your chest about us somewhere else- I'm as pissed about this as anyone.
'man-made' disasters- I'd say you just described the Bush administration, but that's seriously classless considering the subject matter of this thread.

I swear, conservatives will politicize ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. It's pathetic. You'd do better to email the president and Hillary when this happened, like I did, instead of taking pot shots at him and everyone who voted for him on an anonymous Internet thread.

pardon you? Can I start generalizing now, too?
You're, right. How about skirt wearing, a-hole euro trash that were some how paid off (probably in oil) to let a mass murderer go. Unbelievable, think if if the US had a 9/11 terroist in custody and two years from now let him go because, "it's the nice thing to do because he's going to die soon". Beam me up, Scottie!!!, we are all going to die someday, hopefully not in sheer terror like the Clipper 103 victims!!!!

Lighten up Francis! I was just trying to be politically correct but I really struck a nerve with you! I think you have a few issues that need to be resolved. Maybe some Prozac or lithium would help. Maybe a diaper change? I don't know. I just get paid to fly planes. Psycho.

Anyway, my post had nothing whatsoever to do with US politics. If your reading comprehension was above the 5th grade you would have been able to figure that out. You can also pull your head out of the sand with your whiny "Conservatives politicize ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING" comment. Like liberals don't???? Oh, was I incorrect on the "man-made disaster" comment? If so, call me out and I will apologize. Until then, I send you a virtual tissue to dry your eyes.

Easy homes!

You're dumber than I thought. Since you bit the bait MCHammer, please explain your double standards with a scientist called Wernher von Braun.

@all
Stepping down from your little soap box and taking a closer look at the entire Clipper 103 trial, you'd see that there are a few irregularities, there's a good article about it here.

Screaming foul play and sounding tough doesn't do the victims of flight 103 any good. It would be nice to think more and prevent this Sheit in the first place!

It can't get any dirtier than politics...

Hey Scottie sorry to get your skirt (or kilt) ruffled, but The Lybian government admitted culpability for PAN AM 103 as well as UTA Flight 772 and the Berlin discotheque bombing.

Comparing a scientest in the service of his country in a time of declared war to a convicted state sponsored terrorist is somewhat comical. I guess using your logic Robert Oppenheimer falls in the same categorey as Von Braun?
