Air Crash in Libya kills 103

An Afriqiyah Airways Airbus A330-200 crashed on landing approach in Libya today. One Dutch child is listed as surviving.
The Triploi International Airport, where the plane was attempting to land, has no precision approach controls.
The weather and visibility were good and there were no reported issues with the plane or with the airline's safety and maintenance history.
The plane was delivered new in 2009.

Why post this story?
The Lockerbee bomber, who killed  270 people (in the plane and on the ground) Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi was set free to return to Libya for his final days on earth in August of 2009.
He was not expected to live more than a few months and he has since made "a miraculous recovery" since returning home.
That's right!
After more than a year of surviving and, apparently, thriving; this murderous waste of space is enjoying life because his jailers caved and set him free out of "compassion".
I am certain this compassion will encourage terrorists to be nicer people.
