Senator Robert Menendez called the BP deal "blood money." The New Jersey Democrat is calling for an investigation that the oil giant was behind the release of the Lockerbie bomber in order to secure a deal off the Libyan coast.

Two U. S. Senators are calling for an investigation into evidence that BP was behind the release of the Lockerbie bomber from prison to his homeland Libya. This release was made so that BP could secure an oil deal with Libya, these senators allege.
Senators Robert Menendez (D NJ) and Chuck Schumer (D NY) are calling for an investigation that BP ordered the release to happen “quickly.” The investigation, if it happens, could go very deep involving the British government and also officials in the United States government.
Menendez called BP’s oil deal “blood money.”
Schumer said the oil project off Libya’s coast “should not break ground.”
The Lockerbie terrorist was released from prison on humanitarian reasons because he supposedly had only months to live. Now, it has been revealed that doctors are giving him a decade or more.
It’s clear that something dirty behind the scenes occurred, and it probably involved oil. I hope the senators are successful in beginning a real investigation into this issue…and let the guilt fall on those corrupt in both governments, no matter who they turn out to be.
