Cameron Defends BP (NYSE:BP) in Lockerbie Assertion

The attempt by Democrats to make it look like the lobbying of Libya by BP (NYSE:BP) is a new story, seems to imply how desperate they are to change the narrative so voters in the United States forget the destruction they've caused to the country since they've been in power.

BP has already stated, as has been known since 2007, that they were involved in encouraging an unrelated prisoner exchange to be done quicker between Britain and Libya in order to get important business in Libya.

Considering the United States has over 50 businesses doing deals in Libya, it makes the Democrats look hypocritical in they eyes of those viewing their antics.

As far as the release of Abdel Basset al-Megrahi, who had been released by the Scottish government after being sentenced to life for the bombing of a Pan Am flight in 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland, BP and Britain has stated more than once they weren't involved in any way with that situation.

British Prime Minister David Cameron, said this on National Public Radio concerning the allegations by Democrats:

"... let's be clear about who released al-Megrahi; it was a government decision in the UK. It was the wrong decision. It wasn't the decision of BP. It was the decision of Scottish ministers."

How much clearer can it be said than that? Now the Democrats need to issue a public apology for falsely accusing BP, and implying British politicians are lying.
