A coalition of senators have asked Britain to put Abdel Baset Al Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, back in prison nearly a year after he was released from prison with a three-months-to-live prognosis. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) have written a letter to the British embassy calling for an investigation into Al Megrahi's release and asking the doctor who diagnosed the Libyan terrorist to apologize to the victims' families. Karol Sikora, who diagnosed Al Megrahi as only having three months to live, said it was "embarrassing" that he lived so long, and has since admitted Al Megrahi could live longer. "There was always a chance he could live for ten years, 20 years... but it's very unusual," Sikora said. Al Megrahi was convicted in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that crashed over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270 people-183 of whom were American. He had served eight years of his life sentence before his release.
