Finally something most of us can agree on. Ask any American and they will express their outrage over convicted bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi being freed to return home to Libya. Megrahi was convicted and imprisoned for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 that blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 259 people aboard the plane and 11 on the ground in December, 1988.
Megrahi was freed because he is terminally ill with prostate cancer. He was given a hero’s welcome (despite President Obama’s warning to Libya that no hero’s welcome was in order) at home in Libya where he continues to publically whine about about his innocence.
Those 270 people who perished at the hand of this criminal would have probably have liked to have gone home and spent their last hours, days, months with their loved ones also, before being blown to bits. Most civilized people have no compassion for this killer. What on earth is wrong with Scotland for releasing him?
Megrahi is not worthy of a picture. He served 8 years of his sentence.
