I posted on this a couple of days ago but it was only up briefly. It is a story that has been in the news lately.
Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'
The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.
Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.
The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.
The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests.
My point in the last post was that Obama would not have the stones to do anything about it. Forgetting Obama for now, it's hard but you can do it, what do you think about this?
Specifically, what should the United States' response be? Should we have sanctions against any of the countries, the United Kingdom, Scotland, or Libya? If we should, who and in what way?
