The Irish Times reports the following: "In a letter to the Senate foreign relations committee, British foreign secretary William Hague acknowledged BP had lobbied the Labour government on five occasions to have al-Megrahi included under the terms of a subsequently-agreed prisoner transfer agreement, but the Scottish government refused to allow him to be included. It released him later on compassionate grounds because he was diagnosed with cancer."
Well old al Megrahi did not have the terminal cancer that was going to kill him in three months and will now live for years to come. I think a fitting ending will be for Toxic Tony to move to Benghazi and move in with al Megrahi and the two of them can chat each afternoon about how America has done them bad. I will let my readers decide who is worse Toxic Tony or the Murderous Megrahi?
