Dying Lockerbie bomber 'could survive for 10 years or more'

The Lockerbie bomber could survive for 10 years or longer, according to a cancer specialist who last year said he would be dead within three months of his release.

Professor Karol Sikora, who assessed Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi for the Libyan authorities almost a year ago, told The Sunday Times it was "embarrassing" the bomber had outlived his three-month prognosis.

Megrahi, 58, is the only person convicted of the 1988 bombing of a US Pan Am jumbo jet over Lockerbie, which left 270 dead.

The Scottish government provoked outrage from the United States when it released him from prison in August 2009 on compassionate grounds because he dying of metastatic prostate cancer.

In Scotland, prisoners are eligible for release on compassionate grounds if they have fewer than three months to live.

And bow to him. And apologize for something.

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi doesn’t like people bowing to him.

Maybe if we had a real President, his life expectancy would be have been no longer than 3 months... one way or another.

I am not surprised that liars lie, but I am constantly amazed at the people who are generally indifferent at being lied to. Too many people seem to live in some fantasy world where nothing matters.

Make the Doctor who made the wrong assessment start serving his time from now until he dies.

Maybe the doctor realized Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi needed a lot more time to pay his bill .

I'm not sure that would stop Pres. Obama. It appears to be a compulsion, especially when meeting America's enemies.

“He’s been dying of the same heart attack for the last 20 years.”

Kind of reminds me of my granny who, according to her, was going to her death bed at any time since she was in her 50's and I was just old enough to walk.

She finally ended up passing on a couple of years ago at 102.

Once this guy's "another 10 years" is up there'll probably be another 10 years after that too.

It would stop Obama if Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Lockerbie won’t meet him for the purpose.

Of course it was....poor terrorist,he needs to be set free because he's on his last leg, dying of cancer, has only 3 months blah blah blah.. I think there was a 'not a danger' thrown in the speel for good measure.

I trust that the Scottish National Party poltroons and their British Labour colleagues got their well deserved 30 pieces of silver out of this deal. Very seldom has such a self-serving deal stunk so bad!

The Scots are saps.

Actually the Scottish people were outraged by the decision to free this creep.

The village of Locherbie lost 11 of its citizens that night.

How do you figure that?

Labour did very well in Scotland last election.

This was discussed here a while back and by the Brits. The allegation was blood for oil, involving BP.
