Sure, you followed the news but you don't even know who released him.
"Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill said he understands people will disagree with the decision but said al-Megrahi "now faces a sentence imposed by a higher power. It is terminal, final and irreversible. He is going to die."
In Washington, the White House said it "deeply regrets" the decision to release al-Megrahi."
What makes you think the White House approved of this decision they "deeply regret?"
