President Obama is getting the very same Jouronistic Pass (Carte Blanche) from the supine American media as Candidate Barack Obama recieved in 2008- No serious inquiry into the palmed U.S. Documents on the release of the Lockerbie Bomber ( Chicago Tribune merely tossed in thin Associated Press link); just as Chicago and the broader American Media ignored Rezko, Ayers, Wright, Pfleger et al. as 'distractions.'
The Lockerbie Hypocrisy is getting a pass from the American Media. Where is there any serious inquiry, but from Fox, and the more conservative news out-lets? Great Britain and International media are calling for the Obama White House to release documents on the Lockerbie intervention/
This is an atrocity and no distraction - forget Blago this is real:
LONDON (AP) — A newly released letter shows that worried U.S. officials warned Scottish authorities that scenes of jubilation in Tripoli over the release of the Lockerbie bomber would be damaging, and asked that Abdel Baset al-Megrahi not be allowed to leave Scotland.
A 2009 letter from Richard LeBaron, the charge d'affaires at the U.S. Embassy in London, to Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond was released Monday.
It sets out American opposition to the release. It says even release on compassionate grounds because of al-Megrahi's cancer diagnosis would be more "severely undercut the longer he is free before his actual death."Al-Megrahi was released by Scottish authorities last August. He returned to Libya where he is receiving treatment for terminal prostate cancer.
The Lockerbie Bombing killed nearly 200 Americans, as well as UK victims.
President Obama hissed out 'outrage' to Prime Minister Cameron last week and sic-ed his Journolists on BP imagined roll in the release of the Libyan murderer.
This mewling Obama appeal to intervene for a terrorist murdering thug's freedom on compassionate grounds is a horrific hypocrisy.
