Are you really that naive to think that not every multinational has to deal with some unsavory people and make some unsavory deals every now and again? Do you think the US government isn't guilty of far far far worse? These blowhard senators are just trying to deflect attention from their the incompetence of congress.

Well Germany killed like 6 million Jews, the Russians killed 10's of millions of Germans, Polish, etc.. Pol Pot killed a ton as well. I guess we should probably just ignore any bad behavior if it involves lets say killed less than 20 million or so?

:rolleyes:

And when you kill a man, you're a murderer
Kill many, and you're a conqueror
Kill them all...Ooh...Oh you're a god!

Lockerbie bomber's release 'a mistake', says British ambassador

Last night Sir Nigel released a statement through the Foreign Office, in which he said: ''The new British Government is clear that Megrahi's release was a mistake.''

And he added: ''The British Government deeply regrets the continuing anguish that his release on compassionate grounds has caused the families of Megrahi's victims in the UK as well as in the US.

''However under UK law, where Scottish justice issues are devolved to Scotland, it fell solely to the Scottish Executive to consider Megrahi's case. Under Scottish law, Megrahi was entitled to be considered for release on compassionate grounds.

''Whilst we disagreed with the decision to release Megrahi, we have to respect the independence of the process. The Inquiry by the Justice Committee of the Scottish Parliament concluded in February that the Scottish Executive took this decision in good faith, on the basis of the medical evidence available to them at the time, and due process was followed.

''We have to accept that the release licence does not provide a mechanism for a person who has been released on compassionate grounds to be returned to prison if they have survived for longer than the period diagnosed by the relevant medical authorities.''

If we simply put terrorists to death, like we should, then issues like this would be impossible. I find it ironic that the UK lets a piece of shit who didn't show any compassion for the innocent people he murdered go free for compassionate reasons.
