Mass Murderer Freed

The U.S. State Department has expressed its "deep disappointment" with the decision by the Scottish government to free the only terrorist convicted in the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The Dec 21, 1988 flight ended with the bombing of the plane, resulting in the loss of the entire flight and murder of 259 passengers and crew.

Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, 57, a former Libyan intelligence agent, served only eight years of a 27-year minimum life term in prison for the murders of 259 passengers and crew members, including 189 Americans, and 11 people from the Lockerbie who were killed on the ground.

Al-Megrahi was set free on "compassionate" grounds in response to a prisoner transfer application submitted by the government of Libya due to the terrorist's terminal prostate cancer. He will be flown home to Libya to die a free man while the survivors of his victims stand by in disbelief. For those who still don't believe in capitol punishment, executing a mass murdered of hundreds of people would certainly seem a just punishment. See Chick's FLIGHT 144.
