This is exactly what the families of his victim’s said would happen if he was released. Now every “nut job”, Muslim terrorist will feel empowered.
The White House blasted the jubilant, flag-waving Libyan crowds that greeted Pan Am bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted in the 1988 killing of 270 people but is being embraced in Libya as a returning hero.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the elaborate homecoming in Tripoli for al-Megrahi was “outrageous and disgusting” — offensive to all the families of those killed in the 1988 Lockerbie attack.
As al-Megrahi woke up a free man Friday morning, Scots expressed their “shame” at their government’s early release of the Libyan national, who was set free on compassionate grounds and flown back to die of cancer at home rather than behind bars.
This is a prime example why “Club Gitmo” must remain open and under United States control. You can take my tax money and pay for that, President Oboma. The rest of the world cannot be trusted to harbor these monsters. Only we can. We do not torture them, and we do not set them free so that they can kill more innocent men, women, and children.
