It's also certain, Director Mueller won't "recalibrate" his choice of words in his denunciation of MacAskill's decision to release the mass murderer Abdelbeset Ali Mohamed al Megrahi. Clearly, Robert Mueller disagreed and minced no words in the letter to MacAskill, which was posted on the FBI website. He said the release makes a "mockery of the rule of law" and that "I am outraged at your decision." Al Megrahi is the former Libyan intelligence officer who was the only person convicted in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. There were 270 men, women and children killed in the mid-air explosion of the Boeing 747 – 189 were Americans, many of them college students. Eleven of the dead were people on the ground. They were murdered in cold blood by terrorists. Sentenced to prison, supposedly for a life term but a minimum of 27 years, al Megrahi served just eight years and now is free as a bird and is being celebrated as a returning hero by Libyans. We're told that al Megrahi has "terminal" prostate cancer and has just three months to live. Anyone want to make book on that prediction? [READ ENTIRE COLUMN]
