Justice was not served here in America when Lynette Squeaky Fromme was released from prison.Even though she served out her entire sentence.Unlike the Lockerbie bomber,”Squeaky” was not released on “compassionate grounds.”
The Scottish Justice Secretary has let Abdelbaset al-Megrahi go home to Libya,where he will be treated as a hero, because he is dying.I’m sorry,but there is nothing justified or “compassionate” about releasing a terrorist who murdered 270 innocent people.Where is the compassion for the victim’s relatives?!!
Here’s more on this disturbing story from The Christian Science Monitor:
“Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill’s granting of “compassionate release” Thursday to Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence agent convicted of murdering 270 people in the 1988 bombing of Pam Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, earned an outraged response from US officials and family members of the victims.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was “deeply disappointed” at the Scottish decision, and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) of New Jersey, whose state lost 30 residents in the attack, said the release is “an outrage … that sends a message out to terrorists.
“Rosemary Wolfe, whose 20-year-old stepdaughter Miriam was murdered in the attack said: “MacAskill forgot the compassion he should have for the families, for the victims. Compassion for a man who’s shown no remorse makes no sense to me.”
Of the dead, 189 were Americans. The Scottish authorities say Mr. Megrahi has only a few months to live and should be allowed to die surrounded by his family.But while opposition to the release has been heated in the US, a far different picture emerged today across Britain.
The only man convicted in the worst terrorist attack in British history, which left an indelible mark on tiny Lockerbie where 11 people where killed by falling debris, appears to be receiving a greater degree of sympathy.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
