  •  It's like the "TNC rejects NATO bases" 'story' (2+ / 0-)

    from last week.  TNC publicly rejects NATO bases even though nobody was asking for such bases.  Now TNC rejects extradition for Lockerbie bomber when nobody was seeking extradition.

    I  think these are just PR statements to score brownie points with the anti-West segment of the Arab world, to show independence from the West.  Otherwise what's the point of making these statements?  And the MSM likes to gin up a "controversey" where there is none, so they play up these statements into "controversey" stories.
