Default Compassion shown to those perceived as enemies

Barack Obama attacks decision to free Lockerbie bomber

Personally I feel that releasing the jailed Libyan was certainly the right thing to do, notwithstanding his appeal that he has always claimed his innocence in not committing this horrendous crime.
The fact he has terminally ill cancer, and has only a few months left to live was why he was released on compassionate grounds. This demonstates to me that the Scottish justice system has shown signs of christian charity i.e. forgiveness to the Libyan which the 'US president' has a difficulty in trying to grasp with.
For some it is a very hard lesson to learn from Our Lord Jesus regarding "Loving your Enemies".
