Posted on 05/20/2012 6:11:24 AM PDT by Kaslin
TRIPOLI, Libya The former Libyan intelligence officer Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, has died in Libya, his brother told AFP on Sunday.
"He died an hour ago," Abdelhakim al-Megrahi said, putting the time of death at shortly after 1:00pm local time.
The UK Foreign Office could not confirm the report Sunday, however it said it was "seeking further information."
Megrahi, 60, was convicted in a Scottish court in 2001 for his role in the December 1998 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. Most of those killed in the bombing of the Boeing 747 jet were Americans.
All 259 passengers and crew died in the tragedy, along with 11 people on the ground.
Megrahi was released on compassionate grounds in 2009 and allowed to return to Libya. Doctors said at the time that he had terminal cancer and only three months left to live.

bury him in pig guts!
They freakin’ release him and he dies 3 years later. So in other words the guy could have been at a high risk for a heart attack and they still would have released him judging by how long it took him to die. Chalk up example #345 billion on how effin’ insane liberals are, although IMHO nothing beats Obama and Holder fanatically trying to get Khalid Sheik Mohammed tried as a US citizen with full constitutional rights so he would have a better chance at being sprung. Oh yes, and being tried in New York city in the former shadow of the WTC no less to rub it in the faces of the victims families when it happened.
And a True Hero of Islam goes home to be with Allah.
I expect the ground-breaking of the Megrahi Victory Mosque in Tripoli to commence within the week.
'Cultures of death' (Islam), do just that for any who murder Americans. They see violence and murder as a blessing from their false God Allah..and always will honor these despicable men in Islam. Many of their leaders admit to loving death, honoring these murders will continue.
So, he's going to be buried in Detroit?
May they all suffer the tortures of eternal hellfire for their twisted thoughts and murderous deeds.
Finall the POS is where he belongs.....RIH
I hope the announcement is valid.
Re: (May he Rot in Hell)
Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle!!!
Somebody point me at the grave - my back teeth are floating.
GRRRRRREAT news! Thanks for posting.
In the Teddy Kennedy grease fire too!
That’s the other Kennedy eternal flame.
Good, now put the stiff in the ground before it stinks up the place.
Careful. The leftwing PC police might throw you in jail for “Islamophobia!!!!” Something they think is worse than Mohammedan terrorism.
It’s about time. What took him so long?!
Say hello to Kaddafi in hell you scum sucking rag head.
The Obama administration initially lied that they were not made aware of the plans to release this man.
Let’s not be so callous. How about some elegiac poetry.
Fly all flags at double mast.
That SOB is dead at last.
The daisies in the dell
Now emit a different smell.
And we wish him most sincerely,
Have a hot old time in hell.
and an older article from the Independent:
Note especially this:
Abu Talb was given lifelong immunity from prosecution in exchange for his evidence at the Lockerbie trial; Marwan Khreesat was released for lack of evidence by German police even though a barometric timer of the type used to detonate the bomb on Pan Am Flight 103 was found in his car when he was arrested.
Three months after the bombing, Dumfries and Galloway police published a report on Lockerbie that concluded: "There can be little doubt that Khreesat is the bomb-maker for the [Palestinian group] PFLP-GC, and there is a possibility he prepared the explosive device which destroyed Pan Am Flight 103. As such he should not be at liberty."
One of the family members was on a Sunday talking heads show that I saw (normally I avoid those), stated that Scotland Yard told him years ago that there wasn’t “a scintilla of evidence” linking Syria and Iran to the bombing, but that they were sure of their involvement. Then the family member complimented Zero (this was after having claimed to have met with “Bush 41” in 1988 — before he was President) and it became clear that nothing more will be done about Lockerbie, but it will be among the memes planted in the buildup to Zero’s probable October Surprise attack on Syria and/or Iran.
Piss on his grave...
Libya has mostly Indian doctors, so dose NHS actually.
When he “celebrated” his first year of freedom after being released to Libya, my comment was, “Libyan Doctors Find Cancer Cure!” ;)
No, Zero will not attack Syria. That is as likely as Russia sending bombers over Tel Aviv. Yes, the Soviets might have done that in the midst of the cold war, but they learned by their mistakes.
Iran - possibly, but much, much more likely that 0 will finagle some kind of agreement that will allow the Mullahs to continue with their development of atomic bombs, and force the Israelis to accede.
HuffPo agrees, must be some meme-building going on. I love that term “stability” — libs and rads always use that one to justify supporting monstrous regimes, and forget all about it when they dogpile on some bloody uprising.
Why Stability in Syria Matters
“Hard to tell. If he is a muzzie, hes probably getting aquainted with his 71 virgins.”
And may they all look like maxine waters.
The sub-human savage actually killed 270 people that night.
Actually it was in retalliation for the downing of the iranian airbus by the USS Vincennes in 1988.
Libya’s response to Eldorado Canyon was the September 1986 hijacking of Pan Am flight 73
The iranian/hezbollah attempt was foiled two months before the bombing when German Police seized a Toshiba radio packed with Semtex (the exact same style bomb that was used on PA103). The libyans were asked to use their network in Malta to smuggle the bomb onto a U.S. bound flight.
