Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton says if Libyan rebels want to show “gratitude” to the United States for helping to oust tyrant Moammar Gadhafi they should extradite the man accused of masterminding the bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Bolton also told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Monday he believes the State Department was “complicit” in Abdel Baset al-Megrahi’s release from Scottish imprisonment.
Bolton thought that trial by Scottish law was not enough, because Scotland did not have the death penalty.
I agree with John Bolton.
Abdelbaset al-Megrahi should be extradited to the USA for a second trial, and he should be sent there the moment that William C. Rogers III is extradited to Iran from the USA to be tried for a similar crime.
After all, it is most appropriate, according to Bolton's standards, since Iran has the death penalty.
