Lockerbie Bomber Death Said to Be Imminent
FOX News ^ | December 09, 2010 | NA

Posted on 12/08/2010 11:26:07 PM PST by prisoner6

A source close to the family of the Lockerbie bomber Abdul Baset al Megrahi told Sky News Thursday his death is imminent and every day is "expected to be his last." Suffering from prostate cancer, the Libyan's health has rapidly deteriorated -- and his relatives said he has been in a coma and on life support for around a week. Al Megrahi -- who was convicted of killing 270 people by bombing a Pan Am jet in 1988 -- has been unable to walk for a number of weeks and is not expected to recover.

I’ll believe his death is “imminent” when he is a rotting corpse.

Real shame that he’s hurting!

Put a bullet thru his skull to free him from his pain!

I don’t see any down side and I’ve look everywhere even down the sewer and nothing was found.

I don't believe it for a second. Last we heard he was in fine health and the Gordon Brown administration in England had egg on its face for cutting a deal with Libya for oil, as corroborated in wikileaks files iirc. This guy will be given some plastic surgery and a new identity like a witness protection program, and some look-alike schmuck in prison will take his place at the morgue. The timing is beyond coincidence.

If this report is true, I do wonder whose justice we live under.
4 years ago I saw my husband die a very painful death from prostate cancer and I can tell you that there was no joy in it. There were some miracles but this is a very painful death and if my inoocent husband had to endure it then this guy should endure it 10 times, minimum.

Well since they let him live this long already, I dont mind him hurting a little... Just should be hurting in a cell, instead of coming home to a hero’s welcome and getting to live out his final days at home in comfort.

....guess the wikileaks memo's have people worried.....this news wasn't even on the radar screen a week ago, but now with the cables being released, there are high level brits hoping the creep cashes in earlier than expected to duck the "imaginary" firestorm Homer Holder could bring through investigations.

The Vikings put the bodies of their heroes on a ship that was set on fire then pushed out into the fjord.

The Islamofascists should put their hero's corpse on a remote controlled airliner with a bomb set to go off at a certain altitude. You know what is really sick? This mass murdering monster probably BELIEVES he is gonna get his 72 bimbos. Yeah,he is in for a big surprise but I sure wish we could see the video of it.

Agreed

Mohammed YASSER Abdel Rahman Abdel Raouf ARAFAT al-Qudwa al-Husseini was reported as “near death” (or Dead) long before he actually assumed room temperature.

Sadly, the people who need to learn the less of why we need the death penalty will never figure it out.

I’m gonna guess he’s on life support because he’s still recovering from his face transplant.

When he croaks, the US should demand DNA confirmation that it’s his body in the morgue. Otherwise, I’m inclined to believe he’s a free man.

Unless the post involves seeing his face in the video upload from a smart bomb I'm not buying it.

Greta had John Bolton on last night talking about this because of the Wikileaks on the story. Bolton said the US was betrayed by the UK and should’ve demanded the perp not be released, yet nothing was said. And it was done for oil.

Wikileaks may have something relating to the Lockerbie bomber deal, and now al Megrahi's at death's door.

Again.

Gee, what a coinkydink.

They think they get away with murder, but justice catches up with them while they’re still panting from running so hard.
