Idiot Compassion for the Lockerbie Bomber

Ralph Alter
Scotland's Justice Secretary, Kenny McAskill, has decided to release the Lockerbie bomber  responsible for the deaths of 270 on the 1988 Pan Am flight 103.  According to the UK Daily Mail, the crack medical specialists at the British National Health Services have determined that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi:

"... would ‘not be expected to live for more than three months [if he were to remain in prison].  Megrahi was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year but the disease has spread through his bones to his spine and pelvis. He is having chemotherapy treatment."

Why couldn't he just take the pain pill Doctor Obama prescribes for Americans?

Besides the questionable matter of leaving one's national decisions about the administration of justice to a grown man named "Kenny," one must wonder:

Did no one consider that this calculating murderer is the perfect dead-ender?  What better candidate to fulfill a suicide mission than a proven remorseless killer with only months to live?

Unless another agency intercedes, Al Megrahi will be released within days to return to Libya. Perhaps if Kenny were to consult with the like-minded busybodies in the Obama administration, the Lockerbie killer might be able to spend his last few months enjoying the sunny beaches of Bermuda with his Uighur comrades in arms
