The rebels’ National Transitional Council has denied calls for the extradition of Abdel al-Megrahi, better known as the Lockerbie bomber.
Megrahi is the only person convicted in the plane bombing that killed 270 passengers, crew, and townspeople in Scotland.
British authorities released him from prison in 2009 after doctors gave him three months to live. His diagnosis? Prostate cancer. (Video: Fox News)
But two years later, Megrahi is still alive.
Scottish officials kept tabs on him, but lost contact during the uprising against ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Then-- CNN reporter Nic Robertson located the convicted bomber-- in a Tripoli mansion.
Here’s what he found.
NIC ROBERTSON, CNN: “Megrahi apparently in a coma, his aging mother at his side.”
KALED ELMEGARHI, SON: “We just give him oxygen and nobody give us advice. And some food by injection. If you see, his body is weak.”
ROBERTSON: “He appears to be just a shell of the man he was, far sicker than he appeared before.”
GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was among the loudest voices calling for Megrahi’s extradition to stand trial again-- but as Fox News’ Steve Harrigan explains, the NTC has taken that idea off the table.
STEVE HARRIGAN, FOX NEWS: “Right now, ministers in this new transitional government says they will not turn over al-Megrahi for extradition. The new justice minister here saying, he was judged once, he was set free, he will not be sent abroad to be judged a second time.”
CNN’s Robertson had hoped to ask Megrahi for more details about the bombing-- like who knew, who helped, and who within the Libyan government might have ordered it.
But he acknowledges-- that’s unlikely. (Video: CNN)
The New York Times reports-- Megrahi’s failing health could have both good and bad consequences.
“Mr. Megrahi’s death would end the possibility of eliciting his full account of the Libyan government’s role in the bombing... But it would also remove a potentially serious point of friction between the rebels’ Transitional National Council and its Western backers.”
And that-- was a point of contention for the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC: “I still want to know what the British government and the U.S. government knew about his release.”
MIKA BRZEZINSKI, MSNBC: “Oh. Oh, everything.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Because we have been so lied to. By the British. By the Americans.”
BRZEZINSKI: “Please. Oil.”
SCARBOROUGH: “We have been lied to. This is the biggest scam. They knew about it. There were nods and winks. And it’s gonna come out.”

You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy.
A Nigerian man admitted Wednesday in federal court to trying to blow up Northwest Flight 253 with a bomb hidden in his underwear. MSNBC reports Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is now pleading guilty to the eight counts against him.
“Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attorney surprised the court in the second day of the trial with that announcement of a guilty plea. The judges reviewing the charge could possibly look at penalties with Abdulmutallab in court. Abdulmutallab could spend the rest of his life in prison.”
Abdulmutallab -- known as the “underwear bomber” -- is accused of trying to blow-up a Detroit-bound plane with nearly 300 passengers on board. In court, the 24-year-old called the bomb a “blessed weapon” and is currently representing himself.
Here’s what his stand-by attorney told CBS News about the plea change:
“His demeanor was very peaceful. I’m sure that he prayed with regard to his situation and made what he considered to be the most informed decision.”
CBS Radio News chief legal analyst Andrew Cohen said in an article from CBS that Abdulmutallab’s plea change didn’t shock him.
"This isn't a terrible surprise because he had no legitimate legal defense," Cohen said. "All those witnesses on the plane saw what he did, and there was a confession as well. And the judge clearly wasn't going to let him put on a political defense."
A writer for the Guardian notes that Abdulmutallab’s guilty plea to counts including attempted murder and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction stunned the court room -- and will change the course of the trial.
“Pleading guilty dodged a lengthy terror trial, but also allowed Abdulmutallab the opportunity to address the court. Dressed in a black jacket and a brown tunic, he gave out a five-minute statement in which he explained that he wanted to carry out the attack to protest against US and Israeli policy towards Muslims.”
The Wall Street Journal notes - the plea was not because of a deal offered by prosecutors.
And adds these remarks from Abdulmutallab:
“While pleading guilty to the charges—two of which carry mandatory life prison sentences—Mr. Abdulmutallab repeatedly said, "I'm guilty under U.S. law, but not under the Koran," according to two witnesses.”
Abdulmutallab says his actions were in response to “U.S. wreckage of Muslim lands and property.” According to the Wall Street Journal, prosecutors say the underwear bomber is scheduled to be sentenced in January.

Bomber Raid review. Classic Game Room reviews BOMBER RAID for Sega Master System from 1988 by Activision. Bomber Raid is a vertical scrolling 2D SHMUP (shoot em up) airplane shooter like Capcom's 1943 or Star Soldier. You pilot a jet plane (maybe?), that judging by the cover looks like an SR-71 Blackbird, but in the game looks like a P-51 or Spitfire. Mow down enemies with your machine gun fire that can be upgraded by collecting the P power ups. This Bomber Raid video review on Sega Master System shows Bomber Raid SMS gameplay from the Power Base Converter for Sega Genesis (aka Mega Drive)
Bank Shot Bomber review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Bank Shot Bomber from Skiproach Studio for the iPhone. Bank Shot Bomber is a fun game that should appeal to the iPhone owner who likes to shoot pool. Or who is perhaps a terrorist. You have to get the bombs into the mouths of the monsters, just like real life. And you do that by touching a bomb, aiming with your finger and releasing. It's easy enough, but the challenge is in your technique. The more walls your shot bounces into, the more points you earn, the greater your multiplier...the less damage is done to your pool table. This video review features video gameplay footage of Bank Shot Bomber for the iPhone and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Balloon Bomber, an arcade game from Taito. Balloon Bomber released to arcades in 1980, two years after Space Invaders and the same year as Missile Command. And I mention those two because, in a way, Balloon Bomber feels like a mixture of those classics. You're being fired upon by horizontally-moving enemies who gradually move closer and closer to you, like Space Invaders, and when your enemies strike, they leave big holes in the ground, like Missile Command. You play Balloon Bomber as a little tank thing. You can move from one side of the screen to the other, firing one shot at a time upward at your hovering enemies. This video review features video gameplay footage of the arcade game Balloon Bomber and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
