David Cameron believes that Abdelbaset al-Megrahi should have died in prison and the news of his death appears have been similarly greeted in the United States where relatives of those Americans who died in the Lockerbie bombing appear confident that the man convicted of the 1988 atrocity will burn in hell. However, as any reader of this blog will know, it is more than probable that al-Megrahi is a fall guy and the question we should be asking is, not whether it was right that he was released from prison in Scotland on compassionate grounds in 2009, but rather, who is he a fall guy for?
The question asked elsewhere in this blog was, if the C.I.A. is capable of paying key witnesses, what else are they capable of? There is more than enough evidence to suggest that al-Megrahi was framed. Nevertheless, we are forced to listen to Cameron spouting out his pathos when he should at least take the time to read the report published by Scotland’s Sunday Herald, which was kept secret for years, and which could have cleared Abdelbaset al-Megrahi.
Of course, it is a bit too much to expect the rather dull David to cognitively engage with an 821-page report. Nevertheless, he could get his advisors to give him a summary of it and, if that also might be too much for this rather ridiculous figure, we could at least convince him to look at the 47 minute video from Al Jazeera. Cannot be too difficult, David, can it? Just sit back with a wee glass of wine and let it sink in, cognitively process it, and come back to us when you are ready. After all, it is not as if you know something that the rest of us don’t when you say that al-Megrahi should have died in prison.
