Libya Takes Back Money From Lockerbie Escrow Account

Libya has withdrawn half a billion dollars from an escrow account set up to pay damages to the families of the Pan Am flight that crashed by Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988.

They claim that the final part of the agreement, which required that the State Department remove Libya from a list of nations that support terrorism, still has not been met. Each family of the 270 victims has already received $8 million in payments from Libya.

    Half a billion? That's a bit much. Maybe at this point I'd give 'em the interest earned over 20-odd years, though. Oughta keep their country running fine for a while.

    So, are they saying they aren't terrorists/supporters, or are they complaining because we're still calling them terrorists/supporters?

    Yeah, I was wondering that myself. Maybe it was half a billion yen or something like that.
