What's taking so long?

On August 20, 2009, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Hegrahi, the convicted bomber of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, was released on "compassionate grounds" by the Scottish government, allegedly as part of negotiations with the government of Libya.  Al Hegrahi returned to a hero's welcome in Libya, in celebration of his having murdered 270 infidels and serving only 8 and a half years in prison.  That works out to about 2 and a half months per dead kufr, which would be considered outrageously harsh under sharia.  Al Hegrahi then was led to a fête and honorary reception with Col. Mohamar Ghadafi.

The "compassionate grounds" for his release were based on Al Hegrahi's being diagnosed with prostate cancer, described as being in its terminal stage.  He was given 3 months to live.

He has since been released from the hospital, and is resting comfortably at home with his family.
