Lockerbie Bomber to Be "Compassionately Released"?

Via BBC:

The Libyan man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing is likely to be freed on compassionate grounds next week, the BBC understands.

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, who has terminal prostate cancer, is serving life for murdering 270 people when Pan Am flight 103 exploded in 1988.

Scottish ministers described the development as "complete speculation".

Kathleen Flynn, whose son died on the plane, told the BBC she was horrified the "terrorist" could be released.

She added that he showed no mercy as he planted his bomb and should "never qualify for anything compassionate".

If the Brits release this guy they are fools. For comparison, the Manson "family" killed 8 people.

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi murdered 270 people, is this man any less evil for murdering in the name of Allah?

Updated 09/14/09: Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi will not be released early. The decision was made today to drop the appeal. I'm not sure why but he's not getting out so I'm happy.
