Was there a deal between the British government and Libya to set Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the convicted Lockerbie bomber and terrorist, free in exchange for a lucretive oil deal? Read more below, see photos and a video.
So much for a “compassionate” release! According to leaked ministry documents, the British government of 10 Downing Street, led by the feckless Gordon Brown, essentially determined that it was in “the overwhelming interests” of the United Kingdom that Lockerbie Bomber be Freed for Oil. Reportedly, the Britain-Libya Lockerbie Bomber Oil Deal was made after discussions between Libya and the UK over a multi-million dollar oil exploration deal had hit a wall.
The documents – letters actually – were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the Justice Secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland. MacAskill has been widely criticised as he should be for making the decision to release Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, from prison on “compassionate” terms. Megrahi, the terrorist, as you probably know, went home to a hero’s welcome.
These letters seems to indicate that the key decision to include freeing Megrahi, in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, made in London at the highest levels of government and purely for British national interests like BP oil exploration. Simply put, money greasing the palm of terrorists.
The ‘Lockerbie Bomber Freed for Oil’ deal, it true, is not only outrageous but will clearly put a strain on the normally relationship between the UK and America; not to mention the uneasy truce we’ve had for the last few years with Libya.
