The British do have a way with words. Here's how The Times of London puts it:
It emerged that the prognosis that Abdel Baset Ali al-Megrahi had a life expectancy of only three months or less was supported by an unnamed doctor who had no expertise in terminal prostate cancer... The three-month time limit is important because Scottish Prison Service guidance says that compassionate release from prison "may be considered where a prisoner is suffering from a terminal illness and death is likely to occur soon. There are no fixed time limits but life expectancy of less than three months may be considered an appropriate period."
Another media report from Scotland raises the question as to whether doctors involved in helping Scottish authorities reach their decision to release the mass murderer may have been paid by the Libyans. So here's a thought. The UK owes the long-suffering families of the PAN AM103 terror victims the truth about this outrage. If it turns out the freed mass murderer/hero of the Libyan people is not on his death bed, PM Gordon Brown should lead the civilized world in recalling his ambassador from Tripoli, in protest, and not return him until al-Megrabi is returned to jail or dies. As for the business deals: Not to worry. That well traveled road is easily re-connected to:Just follow the stench of Oil.
