Dear FBI...

The Longrider has utterly fisked this bleating arsewipe from FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, sent to Scottish Minister Kenny MacAskill regarding the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi.

But your humble Devil would like to add a few words...
Dear Robert S Mueller, III,

You mention that you were complicit in the Lockerbie bombing invesgtigation.
Over the years I have been a prosecutor, and recently as the Director of the FBI, I have made it a practice not to comment on the actions of other prosecutors, since only the prosecutor handling the case has all the facts and the law before him in reaching the appropriate decision.

Your decision to release Megrahi causes me to abandon that practice in this case. I do so because I am familiar with the facts, and the law, having been the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the investigation and indictment of Megrahi in 1991.

Your piss-poor whining does not alter the fact that you know as well as I do that the entire investigation was a farce. You will know, as I do, that the investigation—which was, at the time, pointing towards Syrian terrorist with links to Iran—was suspended during the first Gulf War. And you will know the reasons for this, whilst I can only guess (pretty fucking accurately).

You will also know that crucial evidence—including parts of the bomb itself—went "missing" in this intervening period of suspension.

You will also know that the course of the case was dictated by spooks—your men in the FBI, who were with the prosecutors in court but not mentioned in the court papers—who dictated the availability of evidence, redacted crucial parts of documents and generally lied.

If you do not know any of this, might I point you to the report of Dr Hans Kochler, the UN observer, who laid all of this out in plain English?
Your action in releasing Megrahi is as inexplicable as it is detrimental to the cause of justice. Indeed your action makes a mockery of the rule of law.

Why don't you shut the fuck up about the rule of law? You—you thrice-cursed shitstain—know damn well that the only thing that makes a mockery of the rule of law is the trial of this man.

You know damn fucking well that there is not a single shred of evidence to convict him: you know damn well that he is, in fact, innocent.

Your attitude is disgusting—you and the US administration knowingly imprisoned an innocent man because it was politically expedient to do so. And our government, to its eternal shame, was complicit in an act of disgusting US dishonesty—not for the first (or last) time.
Your action gives comfort to terrorists around the world...

Oh really?

Tell me, you fuck: which country sent millions of pounds to the IRA when they were busy blowing up innocent men, women and children in Northern Ireland and on the British mainland?

Oh, yeah: that was you fucks, wasn't it? Got to help the mother country, eh? Who cares that they are terrorists? Who cares that they are ruining innocent lives, eh? As long as good old Oirland can hold her head high? After all, we're still waiting for you to put the IRA on your list of terrorist organisations.

So don't talk to us about giving "comfort to terrorists around the world", you fucking little shit.

Oh, and while we are about it, let's look at an Iranian motive for blowing up Pan-Am Flight 103, shall we? Many have claimed that this atrocity was in response to the USS Vincennes' 1988 shooting down of Iranian Flight 655—a civilian passenger plane—which killed all 290 passengers.

Whilst we are discussing giving "comfort to terrorists", Bob (can I call you "Bob"? Cheers), let's see what the US government's reaction to that was, shall we?
The men of the Vincennes were all awarded Combat Action Ribbons for completion of their tours in a combat zone. Lustig, the air-warfare coordinator, received the Navy Commendation Medal, often given for acts of heroism or meritorious service, but a not-uncommon end-of-tour medal for a second tour division officer. According to the History Channel, the medal citation noted his ability to "quickly and precisely complete the firing procedure."
...

In 1990, Rogers was awarded the Legion of Merit "for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding service as commanding officer ... from April 1987 to May 1989." The award was given for his service as the Commanding Officer of the Vincennes, and the citation made no mention of the downing of Iran Air 655.

Oh, yeah: you gave them medals. Nice one, Bob: that was extremely appropriate.

So, I don't normally comment on the pig-ignorant witterings of FBI agents but, in this case, I shall make an exception, because I know damn well that you know all of the above.

So, my duly considered response is this: shut the fuck up, you cunt.

Regards,

DK

Oh, and just in case Bob should read this, I would just like to add this: fuck you too, you dishonest little shit. Go fuck yourself.

this guy was convicted and lost his appeal. unless Im very ill-informed, these guys (the judges) have had a more direct look at the evidence than any of us have.
As it stands..he is responsible for murdering nearly 300 innocent people.
Taking a "this is bullshit, I totally know the guy was stitched up and was innocent anyways" angle on this story is missing the point entirely.
That may have been appropriate before he was released but no one is saying he was let go because the case was shit. Youre getting dangerously close to the tin foil hat brigade on this one...

DK said...

Joe,

Sorry, but he did not lose his appeal.

DK

Henry North London said...

Tin foil hat?

Honestly look at yourself? You have no idea do you.

That policewoman that got shot The British sacrificed her

Edgar said...

al-Megrahi is free. He will not be arrested again. By all accounts, he has little time to live. Who has less to lose from the publication of the truth?

If al-Megrahi does feel inclined to put on record his own story, I, for one, will be more likely to believe that than all the bluster from politicians and intelligence agents.

"Tell me, you fuck: which country sent millions of pounds to the IRA when they were busy blowing up innocent men, women and children in Northern Ireland and on the British mainland?"

DK - that was Irish private citizens and politicians [including judges - independent of the executive] - the dumbest of the dumb: 'Irish Americans.'

During The Troubles the IRA were investigated and treated as terrorists by the FBI.

Since HMG - aka John Major and Tony Blair - the Irish Republic, Bill Clinton and the EU put the IRA into power via its 'legal sock-puppet Sinn Fein, not so much. But back in the day, they were against the IRA and its scummy offshoots and orange counterparts.

1. Amazing how the Americans are so pussy-footed when they deign to comment on "injustices" in China. You are right and the fucking Americans should keep quiet even though they have an interest.

2. The IRA conflict came to an end not as a result of Blairs endeavours but because the Americans stopped them from collecting in bars across America post 9/11 ie shut off their main source of funds.
The Americans therefore at least implicitly supported the IRA prior to this action and have no fucking right to fucking lecture us on supporting terrorists

Wossat? said...

Well bugger me backwards with a dead porcupine! That really told the bastard, DK. And it needed saying.

Joe Shmo said...

DK

My bad. His inital request for appeal was rejected.

Henry Crun said...

Joe, ever wonder why that was?

Psst. perhaps it was because he didn't so it.

johnny nunsuch said...

Now I know why some Americans call the FBI Fart Barf and Itch

All those private citizens in NORAID supporting the Irish terrorists for example

James Higham said...

Yes, but will Robert respond in kind?

Louise said...

Well freaking said. My sentiments exactly.

Just my point - PRIVATE citizens. The FBI were pretty much against the IRA, and everyone, calling them 'The Americans' and having a go at the lot is sweeping, inaccurate and bigoted.

NORAID is not the American people.The American people are not their government. Their government is not the FBI. The FBI was anti-IRA.
Unlike most of the noxious Kennedy clan and the Irish-American politicians of say Boston and New York [with noble exceptions], and their political and judicial pawns.

Honestly, on a libertarian blog too...

Or is anti-Americanism acceptable racism?

Budgie said...

Now, all this would be solved if governments were honest. By the way has anyone seen my chocolate fireguard?

Knownuser said...

days of questions on if he should be released was met with a few voices from the US saying no, after the release they all come out of the wood work. when any comments they made could have had an impact on the decision (rightly or wrongly) they kept quiet but after the fact they come out screaming sounds like spinning the story to me.

Beowulff said...

From a 'nation' that massacred the indigenous population in order to create its 'Manifest Destiny', this cant from the US makes me sick.

If they'd had Megrahi doubtless they would have waterboarded him to death by now (with no legal rights in Guantanomo), to keep him quiet, knowing him to be innocent.

You also have to wonder why no one even got reprimanded when the US Cruiser Vincennes shot down the Iranian passenger jet with 290 innocents on board. That obviously didn't count.

The US mindset has always been totally at home with total hypocrisy, right from the time they whined on about personal freedom for all, as long as you weren't black or a slave. What a sick joke the Septic Tanks have now become !

I'm glad the Scottish Minister sent Algrahi home to die. It was the only decent decision made in all this mess. Perhaps the SNP could come south of the border and run the English Parliament for us.

At the height of the troubles, the provisional IRA was a fairly significant financial administration, with committments to support their paramilitaries, families, safe houses, etc. If provos were killed or imprisoned, they knew their dependants would be looked after, and the Army Council would not default. They could not have done that without the Noraid money.

But the other side of that coin, is the fact that they had sufficient funds left over to buy Semtex high explosive, from Gaddafi. We are only too aware of what they did with it.

So though I agree with DK about the US complicity in terrorism against the UK, I'm not inclined to go to the barricades to protest the innocence of a Libyan Intelligence operator who was an active member of Bombs'R'Us, at the time PA103 was downed by a Semtex device.

Brad said...

What are you suggesting? That the Kennedys and other American Irish politicians are either knaves or dupes of terrorists for inviting Gerry Adams and Martin MacGuinness over here to collect for the "physical force tradition in Irish nationalism"? That the Irish Americans who collected money for the H-Block hunger strikers only provided further proof that "a fool and his money are soon parted"?
Shocked I am!
Next you'll be telling me that the Nigerian e-mails I get aren't legitimate. Or that the local "businessmen's club" with all the Sicilian names on the membership roll isn't legitimate!

CharlieB said...

At the risk of being a pedant, i think you have conflated 2 issues. Question 1) Should a man convicted of a terrorist attack in which 300 people died be released on humanitarian grounds? To me the answer is a very simple No.
Question 2) Was the trial of the Libyan Abdelbasset al-Megrahi a fair one, and was he actually guilty. To be honest I don't know the answer (although I have found the debate on this blog and others interesting and informative). However the 2 questions are seperate issues.

He was convicted by a jury of the crime and sentanced approriatley.

I believe you DK were rightly outraged by the early release of several IRA bombers a few years back, yet many of them attested to mis-trials and had siginificant support in that view from members of the public. However, they had been convicted of a crime by a jury and therefore and liniency should have been unrelated. (I am aware that the reason for the early release was politically motivated rather than due to the suggestion of a mistrial - I'm just using it as an example).

Sorry for the typos.

Wat Dabney said...

-"Your action in releasing Megrahi is as inexplicable as it is detrimental to the cause of justice. Indeed your action makes a mockery of the rule of law."

Is this Robert S. Mueller III the director of the same FBI which "a federal judge excoriated...for not only hiding exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated four innocent men who served more than thirty years in prison, but for rewarding those who did the hiding and covering up with bonuses and promotions. For this crime against American citizens, American taxpayers will now shell out more than $100 million. Thus far, none of the government agents actually responsible for this crime have been held accountable. Only rewarded."?

I think we should be told.

And my point NNWer is why didn't the government stop all those private citizens from supporting a terror campaign against a friendly power - you can't have it both ways either the government interfere OR they don't make your mind up

Charlie B:

No jury for Al Magrahi, he was convicted by a kangaroo court of three Scottish judges sitting in Holland.

Possibly because the US government was then, for all its faults, approximately democratic. It spied against the terrorists and sought to frustrate their actions - disrupting gun-running and the like - but they didn't bring themselves to prevent private citizens giving money to 'charities.'

You get that kind of thing with limited government sometimes - it's frustrating but better than measures likely to lead to some kind of tyranny such as preventing people from supporting certain kinds of well-dodgy 'charities.'

They're scum, but you're allowed to be scum in a free society.

And that's because all the bleeding heart liberals said that he'd never get a fair trial with UK or American juries who might be slightly pissed-off at their planes crashing on our towns. So the whole one-off Scottish law in impeccably liberal Netherlands.
Personally, I'd have had him on trial in Edinburgh or, better yet, Austin Texas, but there you go. The Left got its koala court and they still convicted him.

Now he's a national hero in Libya. With cancer.

I think it had rather more to do with the horse trading over whether Libya would allow him to be put up for trial in the first place, but don't let the facts upset you.

Not solely - the 'human rights' lobby who never gave a shit about PC Yvonne Fletcher and who rarely if ever picketed a black African embassy during any of Africa's black-on-black genocides were all over this from the start. Of course Libya's government wanted their people out too, in order to smack the West in the face and now that Bush is out and Obama is in, then they're up to their old games again.
