Lockerbie bomber freed from Scotland for oil?

December, 1988 Pan Am (Pan American) flight from London Heathrow Airport to New York City’s John F. Kennedy JFK airport, a Boeing 747-121 named Clipper Maid of the Seas was blown up by a bomb while over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Killing 270 people, passengers, crew, and people on the ground. The incident named the Lockerbie Bombing. In 2001 Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi of Libya was convicted and imprisoned for life for his role in the bomb and resulting murders.

In August of 2009 Scottish authorities released the murderer Al-Megrahi (a Libyan intelligence agent) on compassionate grounds. Claiming he was suffering from a deadly form of cancer and only had two or three months to live. The murderer was returned to Libya on a charter jet and received with a hero’s welcome. Guess who is still alive? That murderer Al-Megrahi.

When the release happened many accused the British government and Scottish authorities of releasing the murderer for oil from Libya. This accusation was vehemently denied by both the London government and Scottish authorities.

July 16, 2010, The Dallas Morning News reprinted from The New York Times reported BP complicity in the release was for oil leases offshore in Libya. All this while Al-Megrahi and free in Tripoli, the Libyan capital.
