    White House backed release of Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi

    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

    It sure is hot today, must be Obama's fault.

    I think it's going to rain tomorrow, might even flood. Must be Obama's fault.

    We had several absent from church this morning. You got it; Obama's fault.

    I mentioned this on this board when it happened. I still suspect it is true.

    It is true and they've done everything they can to keep it quiet.

    Setting a convicted terrorist free appears to be preferable to Obama over protecting the citizens he is sworn to defend.

    No-one comes out of this well: as I understand it, the White House assumed that al-Megrahi would be free in Scotland but not returned to Libya; the Scottish government then disabused them of that assumption by (a) freeing him and (b) bunging him on the first plane ot Libya they could find.
