BP (NYSE:BP) Lockerbie Inquiry Rejected by British Prime Minister David Cameron

Under fire in his own country for looking like he didn't stand up for BP (NYSE:BP) against the onslaught of the Obama administration, British Prime Minister David Cameron, in his first visit in that capacity to America, reiterated it was in the best interests of America and Britain for a strong BP, while rejecting demands from Democrats for a full inquiry into the release of the Lockerbie bomber to Libya.

Cameron did say he asked his cabinet secretary to see if any other documents related to the case would be allowed to be made public.

This was a sound thrashing of the thuggish Democrats, who outrageously, and without any proof whatsoever, implied British government officials lied about an alleged connection between the release of the prisoner and BP, even going so far as to call it "blood money." Democrat heads should roll because of that childish behavior and unbelievable lack of self control and demagoguery in making those types of accusations.

Cameron reiterated that BP had absolutely no role in the release of the Lockerbie bomber. He also repeated the theme that BP needs to remain "strong and sound," not only because of its value to the economies of both countries, but also to be able to pay for the obligations it has to the Gulf oil spill.
