THE US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be "far preferable" to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.
Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.

AKA: Obama lies again
Gotta help a(n) (ideological) brother out.
Ya best me by a minute!
Well, I never had any doubt that Obama admin approved. The only reason Chucky cheesy Schumer and a few others are pretending to be outraged is because they worried the truth might come out.
Unless Fox News runs this OVER and OVER again ad nauseum, the Drive-by’s will ignore yet another IN-OUR-FACE-LIE from BO.
This may be something that finally blows up in his ugly mug.
If this news isn’t a major Republican TV ad in the next campaign cycle, my checkbook will remain slammed shut as far as the GOP is concerned. Sometimes things get handed to you on a silver platter, and if you are too stupid to take advantage you deserve to remain a loser.
Well isn’t that interesting.
The news about this crew in the WH just keeps getting uglier and uglier.
Drudge: WHITE HOUSE BACKED RELEASE OF LOCKERBIE BOMBER
Thank you, Obama. My friend’s fiance died on that plane. I’ll never forget the days following the bombing. I’ll never forget her funeral. I’ll never forget how deeply my friend grieved.
Whose side is Obama on?
In all cases, on the side of the muzzies.
Of course he approved. A high profile terrorist responsible for the deaths of so many Americans would never be released without consultation with the US government.
The terrorists and the enemies of America!
The bus is being warmed up in the basement of the state department, target the minister in London who wrote the letter. Obviously he did not do it with the approval of either the commie king or his red queen at state.
20 posts on a scoop that proves Obama loves Muslim terrorists?
Good grief! This should be 400 by now.
This info needs to me in the minds and hearts of every American -— the Obozo admin. is a den of liars, frauds, anti-American sleazy opportunists for the far left....
Scotland released this terrorist prisoner with the strong support, not opposition, of the Obama admin.
Obama’s just acting as one would expect from an America-hater. The Kenyan gives the finger to America, her people and her interests once again.
Forget the Republicans, their just as corrupt as the Democrats and have no guts or Leadership.
They have had and have every opportunity to to something and have failed every time.
They are worthless and weak and perhaps it is time for a new party.
The Whig party went by the wayside and the Republicans came into being now we need another avenue and choice.
One would think....
What is really sad about this, is that I am not surprised.
The administration can’t go any lower.
Jeez, how many FReepers are sitting in front of their computers on a Sunday afternoon and how many are spending time with their families, golfing, playing tennis, barbecuing, boating, fishing or just plain laying in a hammock?
Can’t imagine that Barry didn’t also give an informal green-light to releasing Polanski too. Since there’s no scrutiny of Barry’s activities by the press we’ll never really know what went down in that case.
This is beyond shameful. The relatives of those who perished suffered enough losing their family members; our government lying about the release is adding insult to injury.
Impeach the treasonous bastard.
Wasn’t this already confirmed, at least admitted back when it happened? I recall threads here when the guy was getting out, we were all criticizing, my memory has it that not only did the White House okay the release, but in her role as Sec of State, former NY Senator Hillary Clinton had given her okay. Somewhere in the memory banks is Schumer giving some okee dokee as well — I guess I’m having a hard time understanding this “What, who, gee?” unless it’s the BP connection, the release because of an oil deal part of it.
That was my first thought, too. I am not sure how this is "breaking".
“If this news isnt a major Republican TV ad in the next campaign cycle, my checkbook will remain slammed shut as far as the GOP is concerned. “
Not too hard to make it an issue. Show the wreckage, a few words from family members and, if possible, show the hero’s welcome that the terrorist received. We will, of course, be called unfair - but is it any worse than showing a truck being driven around with a chain behind it (used in 2000 to fire up blacks against Bush).
See post 18.
The pubbies wish to remain “above” the rhetoric ~ I’ve honestly given up on the GOP.
What could Obama possibly say about such an ad; that it were racist? HA!
No, this is new news.
How can Obama claim to have “hearbroken, shocked and disappointed” in something he help architect?
What dimension are we supposed to be operating in here?
“the White House pudding is getting awfully interesting.”
if it were not so despicable I almost couldn’t wait to hear old Gibbsy’s soft show on this bit.
One of my uncles’ was supposed to be on PanAm 103 and just missed it because his connecting flight was delayed.
Helping to release this animal just shows how incompetent the administraton is and how depraved it’s ideology.
Ok I’ll add a post to this but I already know he is the enemy of our Republic and I should not need to post to understand that.
Don’t really have a problem with this one, actually, considering that it has always looked really likely that Libya had nothing to do with it and it was Iran who was behind the attack (and this isn’t a conspiracy theory, google for Iran Lockerbie and there’s boatloads of newspaper articles about it).
I mean this looks terrible that the only guy who was convicted of a civilian bombing is sent back to live a normal life, but it’s Iran that is the guilty party here.
Just one muzzie helping another muzzie.
This country is over.
I agree fully with your sentiments, but it’s 2010 and “third party” is a flat stupid, stone cold loser.
(Please tell me you were just venting...)
No, the solution is to take over the existing Republican party and that process is already well underway. It will be a slow methodical grind, but it can be done. Just look at the way the Democrat party has been completely taken over by communists.
Wasn’t there an attempt to blame BP for the release about a week or two ago?
You need to pay to get to the story, Sunday Times is by subscription.
But they DO list it as their top feature.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
If true, extradition to the US to stand trial for his crimes never entered the administration's collective mind.
