Deafening Silence - Sept 7, 2009
The Lockerbie bomber blew Pan Am flight 103 out of the sky, killing 270 innocent people including 189 US citizens - the most deadly attack on Americans prior to 9/11. Now, after serving a prison term of less than two weeks per victim, the U.K. has released the bomber to a hero's welcome in Libya...in return for a better deal on oil.
Now, we've learned that president Obama was kept fully informed of the exchange before it happened, and did nothing to stop it.
This president has made it clear that, in his mind, there is no war on terror...and that no terrorist should be made to feel fear or lasting discomfort.
He didn't specifically say that terrorists should enjoy hero's welcomes and parades. But he has made it possible.
A shattered aircraft...a smoldering crater...and a terrorist's welcome into the new world of Hope and Change-
Feb 26, 2011 Update: The Lockerbie bomber is still alive, we now know that Muammar Gaddafi personally ordered the bombing, that Gaddafi has since praised Obama as being good news for the Muslim world and, even with Gaddafi having protestors by the hundreds murdered in the streets of Libya, Barack Hussein Obama has not used the dictator's name when assigning blame for the violence.
