In Passing

Today’s Captain Renault moment

“I’m Shocked, Shocked!”  Dept
The Australian:
The US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be “far preferable to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Lybia.

Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Lybian prison.
The document, acquired by a well-placed US source, threatens to undermine US President Barack Obama's claim last week that all Americans were “surprised, disappointed and angry” to learn of Megrahi
s release.
Gee, d’ya think?
