"Your action," he wrote MacAskill, "makes a mockery of the grief of the families who lost their own on December 21, 1988. You could not have spent much time with the families, certainly not as much time as others involved in the investigation and prosecution."
He ended the Lockerbie letter with a frustrated question: "Where, I ask, is the justice?"
President Barack Obama on Friday called the elaborate homecoming in Libya for the freed bomber "highly objectionable."

Too bad he didn't “object” loud enough or long enough to the UK government before the release.
Obama feels the release was “highly objectionable.”
Gee, I wonder how the families of 259 murdered passengers and crew feel.
The U.S. is within its rights to have this terrorist hunted down and either killed or captured.
(1) There is no statute of limitations on murder.
(2) The terrorist never faced trial in a U.S. court so double jeopardy does not apply. He can be prosecuted, convicted, and sent to a little cell in a Supermax prison to live out whatever is left of his worthless life.
(3) As far as I know (not legal advice), deadly force can be used to apprehend a murder suspect who wont surrender to law enforcement. That means U.S. authorities can and should kill him if they cant capture him.
Reagan would have had American jets intercept the plane carrying this scum, and brought him to the U.S. for trial. If he died in custody during the process, so be it.
So in other words the UK is filled with a bunch of nazi terrorist supporters? Only Nazi POS child molesting terror supporters believe he was framed.
Not being a child raping terror supporter like everyone who believes this is what a bunch of crap.
Everyone who believes this crap deserves to get on a plane with the worthless POS.
A bomb should be dropped on all the people that announce they love Bin Laden by supporting this terrorist POS.
Another terror supporter takes the side of the bomber.
We should gather all the subhuman trash who support this theory and drop a bomb on them. They were celebrating the day this happened. 180 people died and these people were out celebrating.
They are just as much terrorists as this recently freed guy.
They mark September 11th as a day of joy.
This is selective “compassion” ie FAKE COMPASSION
Bush was not always right!
Far from that!
But BUSH made some good things and he tried at least and he was not a libtard-fascist wannabe muslim...
Case closed.Now it’s a mater of OBAMA....And he could have done much more against that mess concerning Scotland and Lybia.But obviously he doesn’t want to...
William Wallace come back!
He has probably some descendants...Thanks
You are falling prey to the common delusion that the more horrible the crime is the more likely the accused is to have been the one who committed it. So for the worst crimes we should just skip the trial and go straight to the execution. This, of course, is the attitude that led people to lynchings. They were trying to express their outrage, a perfectly understandable reaction.
However, when a child is raped and murdered, someone committed the crime. This does not in and of itself mean the accused, John Smith, did it.
The doubts and discrepancies as to whether the gentleman in question was actually guilty have not been reported in this country, so it’s not surprising few Americans are aware of them. They therefore assume the only issue involved here is a cave-in to Muslim pressure.
It is at least as likely he was released so the British government would not have to face up to a second appeal, which it is widely believed would demonstrate they had intentionally framed a man they knew to be innocent of this particular crime, although probably a bad guy in the abstract. Or that they at least fudged the evidence to nail down a conviction of someone they believed guilty anyway.
The Brits were under intense pressure to “solve” this crime and police forces and governments have been known to do similar things in the past.
I’m agnostic on the issue, but people who I respect and who know a lot more about it than I do are not convinced he was guilty.
What I will never understand is the mindset of those who don’t really care whether the convicted person is guilty or not. All they care about is that someone is being punished. This of course means that if the person in jail is not the guilty party, those who actually did commit the crime continue to walk free.
Dang! Is English a second language for you?
yes. As every body can see (i guess all the typing errors and the simple grammar i´m using leaves no doubt) that english is not my mother tounge.
bfd. Good lord. This is what we've devolved to? I'm outraged at the lack of outrage due to the overuse of the term 'outrage.'
Only a child raping terror supporter believes this guy is innocent.
You’re falling prey to your friends in AL Queda and their propganda.
Just like some people believe child rape is okay some people believe this guy is innocent. The same kind of people believe both.
Very odd line of reasoning. I didn't say he's innocent, BTW, I stated that a lot of people do so believe. This is indisputably accurate.
David Frum, not exactly a liberal although not always someone I agree with, included this list of them in his column today.
"Among those who support the Iran-did-it theory are: (i) former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon; (ii) Robert Baer, the CIA official who worked directly on the Lockerbie case; (iii) Hans Koechler, the UN Security Council observer at al-Megrahi's trial; (iv) Robert Black, the Scottish lawyer who organized the trial proceedings; (v) Dr. Jim Swire, the spokesman for the families of British Lockerbie victims who lost his own daughter aboard Pan Am Flight 103; and (vi) David Horovitz, editor of the Jerusalem Post.
Are all of them child raping terror supporters?
