‘Rebels’ Won’t Extradite Lockerbie Bomber

Lockerbie bomber comatose, near death, family says

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset al-Megrahi is comatose, near death and likely to take secrets of the attack on Pan Am Flight 103 to his grave.

CNN found al-Megrahi under the care of his family in his palatial Tripoli villa Sunday, surviving on oxygen and an intravenous drip.

CNN can find Mr. al-Megrahi when our intelligence agencies and even our supposed allies over there could not? For the record, that palatial villa was almost certainly paid for with his bonus money for taking down the Lockerbie flight.

The cancer-stricken former Libyan intelligence officer may be the last man alive who knows precisely who in the Libya government authorized the bombing, which killed 270 people

Really? Wouldn’t the person who authorized the bombing know precisely? (And, yes, we mean you, Colonel Gadhafi.)

"We just give him oxygen. Nobody gives us any advice," his son, Khaled al-Megrahi, told CNN.

We have plenty of advice to give them.

But the National Transitional Council, the rebel movement that toppled Gadhafi, announced Sunday that it won’t allow the dying al-Megrahi to be extradited.

"We will not give any Libyan citizen to the West," NTC Justice Minister Mohammed al-Alagi said

So much for gratitude, huh? Needless to say, Mr. Obama will still send them billions, anyway.

With the fall of Tripoli to the rebels, his care has been left up to his son and his mother.

"There is no doctor. There is nobody to ask. We don’t have any phone line to call anybody," Khaled al-Megrahi said.

Boo hoo.

By the way, do you think that CNN has told the US or NATO about the location of Mr. al-Megrahi? If not, why not? After all, there are some US and NATO planes over there that could put him out of his misery.

And they are there to conduct humanitarian missions.

    OK. As long as they hold onto him, we don’t give them one dime in assistance. Also, we should confiscate Libyan assets held in the U.S. ( and they are considerable ) three times the amount that it cost us to overthrow Kadaffy. Last I heard it was about one billion dollars. So we take three billion. And another billion for the families of the Lockerbie victims.

  2. canary says:

    USA did more than handle refueling NATO planes. America’s Secret Libya War.

    Fox reported on this “non war”, lie, but I could only find this article going into depth.
