    Default British Officials: Barack and Hillary knew about Lockerbie bomber release

    Downing Street has hit back at Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for attacking the decision to release the Lockerbie bomber.

    President Obama and the US Secretary of State fuelled a fierce American backlash against Britain, claiming Abdelbaset Al Megrahi should have been forced to serve out his jail sentence in Scotland – but a senior Whitehall aide said their reaction was ‘disingenuous’.

    British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return.

    ‘The US was kept fully in touch about everything that was going on with regard to Britain’s discussions with Libya in recent years and about Megrahi,’ said the Whitehall aide.

    ‘We would never do anything about Lockerbie without discussing it with the US. It is disingenuous of them to act as though Megrahi’s return was out of the blue.

    'They knew about our prisoner transfer agreement with Libya and they knew that the Scots were considering Megrahi’s case.’

    That sounds like the attitude you hated about Bush.

    I'll cut Obama some slack here. I'll bet Hillbillary Clinton knew everything and kept Obama out of the loop.

    So why did the Scots bust him loose? It's a social healthcare country, cost borne 100% by the government and they didn't want to spend a huge amount of resources on a criminal that could otherwise be allocated to a countryman in need. You see there are only so many beds, equipment and funding available and spending those resources would have delayed care to another. Don't think that Obama's proposal would not have similar outcomes, unless you spend for private care or can afford a huge out of pocket expense.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Whippet - Bbbwwaaaaaaahhhhhhaaaahhhhh!!
    As for the rest - Can anybody really be shocked by the Brit response to this situation? Here in California, we had a guy in prison that chose to stand on his sink and take a header onto the concrete floor. He broke his neck along with doing brain damage (I think - I wasn't there and don't have first hand knowledge.) The state paid for 24 hour, one-on-one supervision for a comatose parapalegic until he came up for parole. The state paroled him. The cost for his upkeep and supervision was removed from the Department of Corrections. Big surprise?
