Megrahi's evidence 'worthless'

Lockerbie bomber Abdulbasset al-Megrahi, who was released nearly two years ago on the grounds that he was 'dying' and would be dead in three months, appeared on Libyan television on Wednesday night at a rally for Muammar Gadhafi.

Let's go to the videotape.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague has admitted that the 'evidence' that led to Megrahi's release was 'worthless.'
THE medical advice which led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber has been shown to be "pretty much worthless", William Hague said as he re-opened the row over the decision to free Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi two years ago.
The Foreign Secretary was responding to fresh video footage taken of Megrahi attending what appeared to be a government rally in support of Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi earlier this week.

Mr Hague said the footage showed once again that the decision to let the bomber free was "a great mistake", as US relatives of the Lockerbie victims said they were "outraged" by the sight of Megrahi being used as a propaganda tool.
But the man who ordered Megrahi released still thinks it was the right thing to do.
But Mr MacAskill stood by his decision yesterday. "Colonel Gaddafi is an evil man. We condemn him out of hand. It is for the British government to explain why they have been doing deals in the desert with him. Our position is that we abhor him. Mr Megrahi was released because he has got prostate cancer and is terminally ill."
The British government recognized the Libyan rebels as the legitimate government of Libya on Wednesday.

Is anyone yet able to name the rebels, their leaders, and their composition yet? Who are we actually "recognizing" as the legitimate govt in Libya? Are they al-Shabab?

Evidence grows with the assassination of rebel commander and ex-Interior Minister Abdel-Fatah Younis that things are kind of falling apart--but the main contenders are not reported as being al-Shabab but ex-Gaddafi (secularists).
