Let us not forget President Obama's feckless contribution -- informing Libya that al-Megrahi should not be welcomed publicly. Judging by al-Megrahi's hero's welcome on a Tripoli tarmac, strongman Moammar Ghadafi did not fear to ignore that request.

Susan Cohen's daughter, Theodora, died in the Pan Am bombing at age 20. In a letter to the U.S. Senate, Cohen wondered about the United Kingdom and the United States: "Would we stand up to Hitler? Would we stand up to the Soviet Union or China? I am not sure at all. If we are willing to kiss the feet of a tinpot tyrant like Ghadafi because all we care about is money, we'll cave in to more powerful nations when the moment's right."

Then, Salmond-like, we can hail our capitulation as worthy of Gandhi.
