England released Pan Am bomber for oil contract

In 1988, an American plane flying over Scotland was destroyed by a terrorist from Libya (al-Megrahi).  270 people were killed. 

In the May of 2007, Great Britain signed an agreement with Libya that paved the way for al-Megrahi’s release from prison.  BP was awarded a drilling contract of nearly 1 billion dollars from Libya…in May of 2007.  BP has admitted to lobbying the British government in favor of the terrorist release. 

The mass-murderer was released citing that he had approximately 3 months to live.  Over a year after his release, al-Megrahi is doing just fine and according to Dr Karol Sikora (Dean of Buckingham University Medical School), “could live for 10 or even 20 years.”

“We were aware that this [failing to release the terrorist to Libya] could have a negative impact on U.K. commercial interests, including the ratification by the Libyan government of BP’s exploration agreement,” BP said.

US Democrat Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Charles Schumer, Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez are demanding an investigation into Britain and BP’s dealings to release the bomber of the Pan Am flight.   

On TODAY, Senator Charles Schumer (Democrat – N.Y.), said: “The whole thing has deep circumstantial evidence that points to the fact that there was a trade-off — release the terrorist in exchange for an oil contract.”

“It also says that our war on terrorism — this is one of the worst terrorists of the last century — can be traded off for blood money,” he added.
