Shocking claim: US knew about Lockerbie bomber release.
[tweetmeme source=AlinskyDefeater only_single=false]
According to the article, “British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return.”
If this claim is true, it will be one of the biggest stories in some time. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ claims here that Obama and Clinton were aware of the release of the Lockerbie bomber before it happened.
This would be a stunning blow to President Obama who was on a Conservative Radio talk show warning the Libyans not to have a celebration for the bomber’s homecoming hours before they did just that.
To many who have followed the Obama Administration carefully the following paragraph from the article has the ring of truth,
“The officials say the Americans spoke out because they were taken aback by the row over Megrahi’s release, not because they did not know it was about to happen.”
Will the media report this?
