As predicted back on August 22nd, the Obama Administration was aware of the Lockerbie bomber’s impending release. They were kept informed at “all stages of discussions.”

But, when Abdel Baset al-Megrahi the White House and State Department released statements of disappointment and shock:

They knew.

Astute Bloggers reported this from The Daily Mail:

British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return

the officials say the Americans spoke out because they were taken aback by the row over Megrahi’s release, not because they did not know it was about to happen.

‘The US was kept fully in touch about everything that was going on with regard to Britain’s discussions with Libya in recent years and about Megrahi,’ said the Whitehall aide.

‘We would never do anything about Lockerbie without discussing it with the US. It is disingenuous of them to act as though Megrahi’s return was out of the blue.

‘They knew about our prisoner transfer agreement with Libya and they knew that the Scots were considering Megrahi’s case.’
