If I  recall correctly,  Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was not extradited by the Clinton Administration because he would face the Death Penalty in the U.S.  British officials therefore would not agree to that and that was just fine with The Boy President.  Muslim presence in England is widespread is are as common as spineless British politicians. We now see the true meaning of "talking with our enemies."

Although Scottish doctors have only given Abdel Baset al-Megrahi a couple of months to live,  he can actually expect to live far longer in Libya. And he will actually get to be treated by a dentist too. British subjects may now have a country to go for medical treatment.  Mr. Megrahi was also grateful to Scottish officials because he will no longer  have to eat Scottish food.  Way to go, Scotland!

Mr. B!

How absolutely prescient,  and quite a cautionary tale vis-a-vis Obamacare.

{From The Patriot Post 5 March, 2010}

Lockerbie Bomber Getting Better

While the Democrats push to socialize the American medical system, there is relevant news abroad. When the Scottish government released Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi -- a.k.a. the Lockerbie bomber -- last year, it was because he ostensibly had only three months to live. Megrahi blew up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988. "But six months later," reports London's Daily Mail, "al-Megrahi is still living -- and doing it in the lap of luxury."

Though cancer had set in while he was under the British socialized health system, apparently, the treatment Megrahi has received since returning from Libya has put the cancer into remission. According to the Daily Mail, "the British cancer specialist who gave the three-month prognosis was forced to defend his prediction. He insisted that Megrahi remained gravely ill and was not expected to live much longer."

That reminds us of another British comedy, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," in which a collector of dead bodies makes his rounds during The Plague, calling, "Bring out your dead." A second man carries a supposedly dead elderly man to the cart, only to have the old man protest, "I'm not dead ... I'm getting better." After arguing over whether he's really dead ("he will be soon, he's very ill," says the second man), they club the poor sap over the head and toss him onto the cart anyway. That's pretty close to the way the British system actually works. The Lockerbie bomber, after continuing "treatment" under that system, should now be resting comfortably in a British morgue, not running around Scot free.

Jim,

Obviously you gave this administration WAYYYYYY too much credit for integrity and transparency.

Another very, very, sorry episode in Obama diplomacy!

You mean the Lockerbie bomber is still alive?  How can that be?  And those chaps in the UK,  rioting and all that.  Why should they be upset.  Hasn't the government provided everything?  I wonder what the riots will be like here in the U.S.?
