Then perhaps you should avoid reading this medical report prepared by the Scottish government, which today sprung Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al-Megrahi on "compassionate grounds."

A prostate cancer diagnosis, Scottish officials noted, "has heightened his sense of isolation and undoubtedly has substantial psychological impact."

Abuse of authority? The justice minister who formerly worked for Moammar Gadhafi states the Libyan strongman was the driving force behind the bombing of Pan Am flight 103. When Pan Am flight 103 was bombed in 1988, the shattered airplane rained down on Locerbie, Scotland, killing a total of 270 individuals in the plane and in the town. Gadhafi presumably pulled strings to have the Lockerbie bomber revealed from Scotland on "humanitarian grounds" last year, fearing the dictator's role in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 would be revealed.
