USA double standards

The Times today: Lockerbie release could topple Scottish government

I like this follow-up comment, posted there:

    Former Lt.William Calley recently apologized in Atlanta for his murder of 21 innocent men, women and children in My Lai. 500 were murdered in total. Only Calley was found guilty. He only served 3 years of house arrest. Americans have very flexible values when it's Americans doing the killing rather than when it's Americans being killed. Some lives, it seems, are more equal than others.

    Remind me, how many years of house arrest did al-Megrahi serve?
