Cancer a Blessing?

Besides wishing you had cancer to get out of your painful marriage. Cancer was a blessing indeed for Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, a Libyan, also known as the only convict of The Lockerbie Bombing that took place 21 December 1988. A Pan Am Flight -nick named (Clipper Maid of the Sea) number 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. 169 of the 207 souls lost were Americans.

Today, 20 August 2009, Scottish Government released him to return to Libya after being diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer.

A lot of people are mad and upset even more than 20 years after the incident, mostly those who had suffered loss of a loved one on this flight. President Obama has warned Libya from a heroic welcoming, yet they did exactly that.  He was welcomed by a cheering crowd tossing flower petals in the air

There are many speculations it might be part of a deal and not a human act.

I don’t see the point of the early release. Had he not been diagnosed with CANCER, he would have died in prison.
