“I think all of us here in the United States were surprised, disappointed and angry about the release of the Lockerbie bomber,” the president said, speaking in a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron. “We welcome any additional information that will give us insights and better understanding on why the decision was made.”

To most people Obama's remarks are an outright lie. I am sure the pathetic pawns will spin this as nuance if they even bother to report this. Why didn't the president just tell the Scottish that we did not wish to have the bomber released. Instead Obama just said well if you don't keep him in Scotland then just release him. This negotiation was done under the cover of darkness as usual for this administration.
THE US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be "far preferable" to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.
Then Obama has the nerve to say:
President Barack Obama on Tuesday welcomed the congressional investigation into any role BP may have played in the release of the only man, a Libyan, convicted of the 1988 airline bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, an inquiry that could reveal whether the embattled oil giant lobbied for the bomber’s release to win drilling rights in Libya.
Obama knew all along and then feigns anger at BP and the Scots. It seems that BP may not have been involved at all but Obama and his administration was.
The Scottish government was "never, at any point" lobbied by oil giant BP to release convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, according to a letter sent late Wednesday by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry.
Obama lied to the American people. Intentionally misleading is dishonest and the same as lying. The American people deserve to know exactly why Obama deemed it appropriate to say as long as the bomber was being moved Scotland should just release him. I believe an investigation is in order to determine why Obama felt it necessary to mislead the American people. The highly politicized Obama Department of Justice wants to show how great our justice is by trying KSM in New York City by civilian courts. I must wonder is that so Obama can negotiate with terrorist for the release of KSM at a later date? Perhaps Obama will offer KSM a full presidential pardon after his conviction? This isn't nuance. It is another lie from the appeasement Administration.
