Lockerbie Bomber Gets Out Of Bed, Walks

From the Agence France-Presse:

Lockerbie bomber ‘can get out of bed, walk’

September 19, 2010

LONDON — The cancer-stricken Lockerbie bomber can get out of bed and walk although he is clearly a very sick man, said the father of a victim after visiting him in Libya.

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi invited Jim Swire, whose 23-year-old daughter Flora was one of 270 killed in the 1988 bombing, to visit him and the two men spent an hour together on a hospital ward in Tripoli on Tuesday.

Swire, who is British, is convinced of the Libyan’s innocence and has spearheaded a campaign for an inquiry into the bombing

Scotland’s devolved government, which has control over its own justice matters, freed the bomber after he was given just three months to live and he returned to Libya to a hero’s welcome…

“Devolved” is the word for it. 

Swire, who last saw Megrahi in a Scottish prison in December 2008, said late Sunday that the Libyan looked better than he expected during what he described as a "man-to-man confidential meeting."

"I was very relieved to see him as well as he was. He is a very sick man but he can get out of bed and walk though not very far," said the 74-year-old.

"I think one of the reasons he has lived so long is he has had good treatment in Libya and he has been returned to his family and his community and his country.

"These are a huge relief to the body in fighting cancer because your immune system depends very heavily on how much stress you are under."

Swire said he would be willing to visit Megrahi again: "When I go to see him it is not that difficult because I don’t feel I’m going to see my daughter’s murderer because I am satisfied he didn’t do it."

What a deluded person.

And what a travesty of justice on every level.

    For those who are unfimiliar, the term: Useful Idiot comes to mind.

    When the man was released from prison he was said to be on death’s door, now he’s able to get out of his deathbed and walk.
    I wonder if Obama healed him?

      Must have been the climate. Scotland is so damp and chilly you know. A few months in the warm, dry desert and voila he’s a new man.

      So Scotland is “Devolved”? As you can see it comes from the base word Devo which is short for devolution (and was a punk band in the 80’s) which is what is happening to the Scots.

    I am sure a fair number of psychology types would relate the father’s search for “the real killer” and refusal to accept that this guy is the one as a protracted denial of his daughter’s death and a quest to find “closure”. Or, he may just be an ass. Either way, the fact that he returned to a hero’s welcome in Libya says all you need to know about his guilt. I am sure glad the US was officially vehemently against his release (sarc)
