Lockerbie

Occasionally you find some outrage about the release of the supposed Libyan Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbeset Ali Mohamed al-Megrahi. See for instance Front Page Magazine's recent column wherein Robert Spencer uses the incident for more anti-Muslim fear mongering. What you don't often hear is that Hans Köchler, a U.N. observer at the trial, found the decision “totally incomprehensible” (Köchler report, 3/21/01) and “a spectacular miscarriage of justice” (BBC News, 3/14/02). There are quite reasonable questions about the guilt of al-Megrahi. Ed Herman delves into some of the inconvenient facts here.

It's also interesting to note the civilian airline disasters that merit the attention of our media and also the ones that don't.
