Apparently a dying man Ali al Megrahi was released from prison on compassionate grounds because he is dying.
Megrahi was convicted of the Lockerbie bombing in which so many people lost their lifes.
It is a well known fact (well as far as conspiracy theories are really factual) that no evidence could be found to convict anybody of this horrendous crime until the Americans paid a shopkeeper in Malta several million dollars to say "Megrahi looks like a guy that was in my shop." The Americans also helped him move to Australia to get as far away from Europe as he could.
At the end of the day people don't want to know the truth and the people in power in the USA seem to be able to get away with murder. Why are Americans not bothering with facts like why former President George Bush is in business with the Bin Laden family or why in the 911 incident why did the two towers come down like a controlled explosion from the bottom of the building which is just not possible to happen if a plane was to hit the building near the top.
Some Americans are really not bothered as long as they have got somebody for the Lockerbie bombing and it really does not matter if he is not guilty as long as they can satisfy the relatives they have got somebody for the crime.
The American Government have now demanded that they want the money back that they paid to the witness and they want Scotland or Britain to pay it.
