Cartoonists Color Their Contempt for Lockerbie Release

Miami Herald cartoonist Jim Morin said he found Scotland’s decision to release Pan Am bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi “quite shocking.”

“This one was a little personal for me because 35 kids were killed in that plane who attended … the Syracuse University arts program abroad in London and I had attended that same program,” Morin told

“I just find it to be outrageous” that Scotland released Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the only man convicted in the 1988 bombing that killed 270 people.

“I understand how they feel about it, I understand that they have a compassionate system,” he said. “I think that they maybe should have consulted with the victims’ families and listened to them before making the decision.”
