Libyan Terrorist Returns To Adoring Crowd

The head of the US Pan Am Flight 103 victim's group was told there would be, "no celebratory reactions on the part of the Libyans".

The Obama administration said they expected the killer's homecoming would be low key.

A senior State Department official made clear that punitive measures could result if Libya treated Megrahi as a hero, but declined to be more specific.

"Gaddafi is looking for better relations with the United States and the international community and if he wants to be seen as a responsible leader in the region and beyond, this would be an opportunity for him to prove it," said the official, who declined to be named.

Judge for yourself how that's all worked out.

I thought the St. Andrew's flag was an especially nice touch.

I'm sure Obama will be taking action against Gaddafi right away. Any minute now. Just you wait!
