Unfortunate Release of Lockerbie Bomber

Was the release of the convicted Lockerbie bomber tied to an energy business deal between the Scots/Brits and Libyans?
Libyans welcomed convicted terrorist bomber Abdel Basset al-Megrahi after being freed from a life sentence in a Scottish jail on compassionate grounds because he is dying of cancer.

He was the only person convicted of the Pan Am jet that carried 259 passengers -- most of them American -- that was blown up over Lockerbie in Scotland in December 1988, killing all those on board and 11 people on the ground.
The Brits are denying it. If so, how can the Brits be trusted to support and enforce no tolerance for terrorism laws?

There are plenty of prisoners with life sentences that have been allowed to die in prison. THAT'S WHAT LIFE IN PRISON MEANS.

It throws it in the face of those who lost their lives and their families that this man was allowed to return to his homeland -- to a hero's welcome -- to live out his remaining years as a free man.

His penitence was just a dozen days per victim. This has created a new definition of terrorist leniency.

The Brits have certainly given hope (and change) to the terrorists around the world. There's hope with overly "compassionate" administrations or those willing to do anything for a "business deal."

The fall of the British empire continues its pathetic downward spiral.
