We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Lockerbie Bomber Appears at Pro-Qaddafi Rally

28th July 2011

Read it.

I imagine he would.

The former Libyan intelligence agent convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing over Scotland that killed 270 people made a rare public appearance on Tuesday at a rally in support of Muammar al-Qaddafi, a “further reminder that a great mistake was made when he was released,” British Foreign Secretary William Hague said.

But of course Britain has no death penalty any more, so he was alive and kicking when he was released ‘on humanitarian grounds’.

Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, who returned to a hero’s welcome in Libya in 2009 after being released from a Scottish jail after being diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer, appeared on Libyan state television wearing traditional local garb while sitting in a wheelchair at a tribal meeting in Tripoli.

I wonder whether Crazy Anders can expect the same treatment? After all, he killed less than a third of the number of people that al-Megrahi did. He’ll probably have to convert to Islam while in prison, wink wink.

    If Anders develops terminal prostate cancer, I doubt it will matter much if he’s released or not–just as it matters not one whit that al-Megrahi shows up at a Qaddafi rally.

    Are they worried this guy is going to take over military command of Tripoli, or what? He’s dying. What matter where he does it?

    The point is that he’s not as sick as they represented him to be. You people who believe everything you read are the source of much evil in the world.

    I don’t believe EVERYTHING I read; in fact, you post several articles a week that I think are complete hokum.

    And how sick is sick? I don’t recall anyone in the Britsh government saying he was too sick to attend a rally in a wheelchair, and so it’s okay to release him. Maybe I missed that part?

    Terminal cancer is terminal. How much sicker can you get?
