    Angry Libya paid Docs to say Lockerbie bomber had three months left

    Medical evidence that led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber was reportedly paid for by the Libyan government, which encouraged doctors to say he only had three months to live.
    The life expectancy of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was crucial, The Sunday Telegraph reported, because Scottish law mandates that prisoners can be freed on compassionate grounds only if they are considered to have three months or less to live.
    Al-Megrahi, 57, is suffering from terminal prostate cancer and was released by Scottish officials last month. He was the lone person convicted in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland. The attack killed 259 people aboard the plane, most of them American, and 11 on the ground.
    Two of the three doctors commissioned by the Libyans provided the required three-month estimates, The Sunday Telegraph reports, while the third also indicated that the prisoner had a short time to live. That's in contrast with findings of doctors in June and July who had concluded that al-Megrahi had up to 10 months to live, which would have blocked his release.

    "The figure of three months was suggested as being helpful [by the Libyans]," Professor Karol Sikora, one of the examining doctors and the medical director of CancerPartnersUK in London, told The Sunday Telegraph. "To start with I said it was impossible to do that [give a three-month life expectancy estimate] but, when I looked at it, it looked as though it could be done you could actually say that.

    Clusterfuck. We will be seeing Al-Megrahi on video clips for the next 20 years being celebrated as a hero. Rumors will persist that he still alive even after the Libyans say he's dead. Maybe when he really does get close to death , he'll buy another airline ticket.

    Or perhaps they can find enough members of the SAS who were born north of the wall to sort him out.

    That puts the backgrounds of all three of these doctors up for scrutiny, doesn't it?

    Might have been a good idea to do that before the mass killer was released when it still mattered.

    I think the bribed physicians wrote their own epitaphs as the Libyans will now remove evidence, participants, or witnesses to the Libyan deceit. The US and UK and UN are compromised against any clandestine remedies.

    A flock of "Wild Geese" could be launched elsewhere offshore, away from those places with US, UK, or UN sympathizers and legal predators. The rest of the world has the networking and ability to reset this matter on "justice".

    Dont forget the pig skins for those so deserving.

    Added : google "lockerbie case". It stinks all over.

    Yep, but it still matters - If the case against the two or three doctors can be proven and they take his place in prison for a while, maybe it will discourage other expert witnesses from being bribed.

    One would hope that the Scottish victims' families will see to it that justice is done, one way or another, if not to the terrorist himself then to people who helped him in any way.

    Compassion my arse....saving a ton by avoiding medical bills on someone with terminal cancer.

    $10 and a beer says he has at least one 'meeting of the minds' in another terrorist type attack before he kicks the bucket.
