Lockerbie Scotland Bomber-Revisited
Back in August of last year I vigorously protested the decision in the United Kingdom to release upon compassionate grounds the only individual convicted for this heinous crime. I wrote in part…”Have you forgotten the pain of the victims themselves or their families? Have you forgotten that many were American citizens? It is obvious that you have and it is painfully obvious you don’t really | Read More »
A Special Relationship Dies
On 20 August, 2009, US President Barack Obama received a hard lesson in why you do not needlessly belittle and offend long-standing diplomatic allies. One of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s risible, clown-show lackeys released Libyan Abel Basset Ali Megrahi – the mastermind of the Lockerbie bombing.

Your move, Scotland
This is the thing about a tough-guy reputation. At some point, somebody’s gonna call you on it, and you’d better be able to back it up. Now is that time. Thanks to the unforgivably foul actions of your very own little crap-weasel, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill (hereafter referred to as ‘the weasel’), we’re calling you out. Not the United States. Not the ObamaNation. Not the | Read More »
Caught Flat-Footed – A Time-Line
“The Libyan man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing is likely to be freed on compassionate grounds next week, the BBC understands.” August 13th 2009 And so the saga began. Scottish officials floated the trial balloon of freeing the lone convicted murderer of the Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people. While Conservative MP’s called for hearings, the Gordon Brown Labour government did nothing. They could feel | Read More »
