Scottish officials say US memo giving grudging support to freeing Abdelbaset al-Megrahi undermines president's criticisms
Barack Obama is under growing pressure to release a letter that reveals the US grudgingly supported freeing the Lockerbie bomber on compassionate grounds.
The letter was sent to Scottish ministers by a senior diplomat at the US embassy in London last August, eight days before Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from prison because he was dying from inoperable prostate cancer.
Obama's administration has refused to allow publication of the letter, in which the US says allowing Megrahi to live at home in Scotland would be "far preferable" to sending him back to Libya under the prisoner transfer deal brokered by former prime minister Tony Blair in 2007.

let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I would like to know if there is a Stroker-Free Zone to hang out in.
Obama lied again.
Transparency?!!! People nbeed to be hammering Harry Reid on this. Get Congress on the hot seat for Zero’s stonwalling.
There’s a lot more than that letter to release.
Obama went along with it, but he really didn't want to. He was effectively powerless to disagree.
Schumer and Hillary are gonna get hung out on this one. And Obama is laughing.....
Until the letter's released there's really no way to say how grudgingly the support for his release was.
I’m sure Chuckup Schumer will be demanding this letter for his publicity st...uh, investigation.
Each time a story like this appears, I wonder if it will be the one to wake up the 43% who keep giving this abysmal president “strongly approve” in the Rasmussen polling. It seems some cannot (or will not) acknowledge evil in their midst.
Wonder how upchuck and others are feeling right about now.
Going after BP when all along the liar was involved.
No wonder Cameron refused to reveal any information. It was as a favor to the jackass.
Most transparent administration ever. Show us the certificate, er, I mean the letter!!
This is big I think.
It’s all coming together, isn’t it?
The stooges at JourNOlist will be working overtime to make this story disappear. Nothing see see here, move on.
C’mon Barak...make our day...you old POtuS you...
Yeah, like a bad disease.
Yup, Lying dogs—well—they LIE
Should we hold our breath that Fox will do some investigative reporting and go over the MSM's head?
