UK sources: Obama knew about the Lockerbie bomber every step of the way

Obama seems to have screwed up really big (Again!) British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return. The officials say the Americans spoke out because they were taken aback by the row over Megrahi’s release, not because they did not know it was about to happen.

President Nixon was forced from office in his second term for less than 5% of what Mr. Obama has already done in a little over seven months! Are we men & women or sheep?! Why are the torches, pitchforks, tar & feathers and all the rest not already on their way to the capitol?!! What will it take?!

“What will it take?!”

Another 1156 days, I reckon.

We knew what Obama’s stance on terrorism was by the company he kept and the rhetoric he spoke.

None of this comes to a surprise.

Even the Democratas who act dumbfounded are merely expressing phony shock; the same type of shock expressed by Barack himself when the Lockerbie bomber got out of prison.

Don’t forget that Nixon also WON BY A LANDSLIDE not the measly handful of percentage points that 0bama won by.

No links, no sources mentioned, no story, as much as I am easily able to believe it is true.

This is a good one to keep driving at (and shouting from the rooftops) once we have sufficient information.

If we can prove it, we have an explicit example of 0bama supporting a convicted terrorist.

From this link....

Jack Straw raised concern over Lockerbie bomber's health

Some details relating to the US Government's views on the bomber's application for release have been cut from the Foreign Office documents....

Meanwhile, and this is just...God, there aren't words...

Anyone know if there's a Lockerbie ping list?

It was a US airliner that was blown up...of course the United States was in the loop on this!

This was the actions of a NATO ally...of course the United States was in the loop on this!

This was a political move.....of course the United States was in the loop on this!

This was a man convicted with massive US intelligence assistance.....of course the United States was in the loop on this!

Wonder if Hillary will be asked about this

Going to be interesting if she tries to say Obama never consulted with her

If so will she resign ?

Poems from Kenneth J Shaw
Lockerbie


It was the 21st December 1988,
A cold and damp wintry night,
Everyone getting set for Christmas,
Looking forward to a festive delight,
 
In the small borders town of Lockerbie,
It was just like all round the land,
People wrapping up presents,
Cooking food doing all that was planned,
 
In Prestwick Airport 60 miles away,
Air Traffic Control watched flight 103,
Just a blip on a radar screen,
One of many they'd deal with and see,
 
The plane requested oceanic clearance,
Routine in flights such as this,
Passengers dreamed of seeing loved ones,
And that first reunion kiss,
 
But at 7pm on the radar,
The contollers screen showed it all,
Dozens of green squares all over,
The plane had blew up and would fall,
 
It only took a minute or two,
Before debris came down from the sky,
With the bulk of it dropping on Lockerbie,
Where many innocent people would die,
 
Bodies dropped still strapped in their seats,
As wreckage rained down on the town,
But at 13 Sherwood Crescent,
The main fuselage had come down,
 
The house disappeared in an instant,
Along with half of the street,
People ran to do all they could,
But the fires were all round their feet,
 
Emergency services got to the scene,
And everyone done all they could,
Every man, woman and child,
Done and seen more than a human should,
 
Bodies lay twisted and some not intact,
They covered the land all around,
Hanging in trees and lying in fields,
With luggage strewn all on the ground,
 
Terrorists had planted a bomb on the plane,
Because our countries didn't see eye to eye,
But rather than sitting discussing things,
The plane was blown from the sky,
 
So many people aboard the flight,
And so many folk on the ground,
Everyone of them innocent,
This death toll will always astound,
 
Please think of the families and victims,
As we reach this time of the year,
Christmas is special to most,
But to others it brings back their fear.

Meanwhile...

Lockerbie bomber release inquiry dismissed

When asked by ITV News if there would be an investigation into the release, Mr Balls said: " I don't think there is a case for an inquiry because everything's out in the public domain, people are seeing what's happening."

Then why the redactions in the docs...?

Thanks for the heads up.

I did post this one from the UK telegraph article either yesterday or Saturday night (late). I am waiting for the next press conference where Jake Tapper or somebody like him will try to corner Gibbs into making a statement. This is one I am watching closely :)

Thank you for taking the time to print the poem. May they never be forgotten. It is well to remember that the victims included infants and toddlers. I take heart in the belief that the guilty will one day be judged by a truly Righteous Judge.

The “Global War on Terror” is now phrased an “Overseas Contingency Operation”. The knowledge of the release of the Lockerbie bomber, Obozo bowing to the Saudis, etc., etc. is appeasement that emboldens the enemy. We all know how that plays out in history. This hemorrhaging of America and our values must stop.
