Yup, it was the oil
Well, now we know: the next time there's a dispute and you have to choose between the verison offered by Saif Ghaddafi, the son of the Libyan leader, and UK prime minister Gordon Brown, go with Saif. He said that the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, was released in exchange for an oil deal. Indeed, that appears to have been the case according to this news report about leaked ministerial letters. Way to go, Gordie!
