Remember The Dying Lockerbie Bomber? The Trilogy!
July 4, 2010Posted by on
In two previous posts on the “dying” Lockerbie bomber we saw stories about how the man that only had 3 months to live has gone far past his expiration date.
Well guess what folks?
Turns out that the “dying” man that was released on compassionate grounds because he had cancer and would be dead in 3 months now has a 10 year prognosis as seen by this news arcticle on MSNBC:
Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of 270 counts of murder for being behind the 1988 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, was released on compassionate grounds in 2009, after doctors said he only had a few months to live.
Specialist Karol Sikora told the newspaper it was “embarrassing” that al-Megrahi, who has prostate cancer and received a hero’s welcome upon his return to Libya, had managed to outlive the prognosis.
A doctor who said the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 had only three months to live now says the Libyan could survive another 10 years, London’s Sunday Times reported.
Yep the same doctor that only gave him 3 months to live now givesw him 10 years, and the excuse for missing the mark by a paltry 9 years 9 months?
“There is always a chance that he would live for 10 years … but it’s very unusual,” Sikora told the Times.
“There was a 50 percent chance that he would die in three months,” he added, “but there was also a 50 percent chance that he would live longer.”
Wait a minute! Only a 50% chance that 3 months was right? That wasn’t what was told to the people of the US, it was the next best thing to a sure bet with him only living a few months past that if he made it past that time frame.
While at the time of his release the Scottish government sited “firm consensus” among medical experts over al-Megrahi’s condition, that agreement does not appear to exist, according to the newspaper.
Eight people involved in the case now “suggest” that the Scottish government and Libyan officials selectively chose their information, the Sunday Times reported.
According to an earlier Sunday Times report, a former British justice secretary wrote to his counterpart in Scotland that it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make it possible for al-Megrahi to return to Libya.
The letter was written in 2007 during stalled negotiations over a BP oil exploration contract worth billions of dollars.
So basically we were lied to about this, and what it also does is blow the “compassionate grounds” decision of the Scottish Government out of the water. They released him for oil pure and simple. Forget the families of the people this man killed, forget that he was sentenced to LIFE IN PRISION, forget the rule of law, Scotland wanted Libyan oil. For the libtards that might stumble across this and claim “but it was 50% so it was justified” here is three things to chew on: 1. 50% is a coin toss, he was released on a frickin coin toss. Yeah he might die but then again every lifer in prison might die in the next 3 months too if they piss off the wrong person. 2. To me personally I wouldn’t care if it was 100%, he was sentenced to LIFE IN PRISION, now know this is a hard concept to understnad but LIFE IN PRISION means you DIE IN PRISION. 3. This piece of shit doesn’t deserve compassion, the families of the poeple he killed do. I’m not Jesus or the frickin Buddha to have compassion for pieces of shit like him.
Well Scotland when this asshole ends up being found in a terrorist plot that attempts to kill Americans, I hope that the US administration points the finger at you as an accomplice. Of course you don’t have to worry as long as Obama is in office, he doesn’t have the sack for something like that. Also look who else was involved our good buddies at BP.
Something else of note there was a “consensus” that he was going to die and that cherry picked information was used to back up the “consensus”. I wonder where the Scottish Government got the idea that if you stated their was a consensus of expert opinion backed up by cherry picked data, you could easily scam the public? Oh I almost forgot that is the IPCC play book: have a predetermined outcome, claim everyone supports it and cherry pick data.
