WASHINGTON — FBI Director Robert Mueller harshly criticized the decision to release the Lockerbie bomber in a letter released Saturday, calling it “a mockery of the rule of law.”

Mueller, in a note to Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, said MacAskill’s decision to release Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi is “as inexplicable as it is detrimental to the cause of justice.”

Al Megrahi had been serving a life sentence for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in which 270 people, including 189 Americans, were killed.
