Scots - What the Hae?

I've held off commenting on the decision by the Scots Judiciary to release the Lockerbie bomber to go home to Libya on grounds of compassion, given that he apparently has only a short time to live.

Fortunately, David Cameron says it all for me:

My sister was in London for school herself when the Pan Am flight was brought down and knew a number of the Syracuse students who died on board. As she was also scheduled to fly back to the States at around the same time, you can imagine that we were all the more wrought up over the attack.

Frankly, I cannot see any above-board reason for this move.

I missed it by one flight, coming home on leave from Germany for Christmas. Had I not made my connection in Nuremberg (which I almost didn't -- they had closed the gate when I got there but re-opened it for me because I was U.S. military), it was the next thing going out. So this guy almost killed me.
