Missing story in Norway massacre

As the world recoiled at the carnage in Norway, Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi -- freed on compassionate grounds two years ago by the Scottish government with an expectation he would soon die from prostate cancer -- was literally wheeled out at a rally in Tripoli in support of Libyan strongman Colonel Gaddafi, where he was feted as a hero and victim of a criminal conspiracy. The morbid, surreal nature of it seemed altogether par for the course with recent events.
