The provisional Libyan government has refused to deport Abdel-Baset al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. There were 270 fatalities, most of them Americans.
Scotland released Megrahi on faux compassionate grounds that he only had two months to live. Unfortunately, Seraphic Secret has seen cancer and its symptoms up close and personal. One look at Megrahi told us that this man was far from death’s door. Besides, true compassion should have been extended to the memory of the dead and their survivors by executing Megrahi, but the Europeans are way too civilized for captal punishment.
In fact, Great Britain made a deal for Libyan oil—truly, blood for oil.
Well, it’s two years later, Megrahi’s still alive, Ghaddafi is on the run, America has spent about a billion dollars helping the Libyan rebels and in response to our extradition request the noble Libyan rebels have told us to take a flying leap.
Here’s what’s going on.
1. Ghaddafi agitated for Megrahi’s release because Libya is not so much a country but a loose collection of feuding tribes. Megrahi belongs to one of Libya’s most powerful and influential tribes whose support was crucial for Ghaddafi’s regime.
2. The rebels want to establish ties with pro-Gaddhafi tribe hence solidifying their powerbase. They know that America is dealing with a weak hand—Leading-From-Behind- Obam—thus they can afford to spit on the graves of the dead.
3. President Ronald Reagan characterized Ghaddafi as the mad dog of the mideast. Seraphic Secret is delighted to see the Ghaddafi rule crumble. But we have no illusions about the Libyan rebels. They have already shown their true colors by shipping weapons to Hamas occupied Gaza.
4. Because killing Jews will emerge as the Arab Spring’s most lasting testament.
