The Maltese Maverick

John McCain will, yet again, be on ABC's This Week on Sunday. Here's a question. The photo shows Sen. McCain leaving a restaurant in St Julians in Malta in December 2008. The Malta stop looked strange at the time, in a visit (along with his fellow musketeers Graham & Lieberman) which had visited South Asian hotspots.

So Senator McCain -- did you visit Libya or hold a meeting with the Libyan government during your December trip, using the Malta stop as a cover? It matters because the who knew what and when about the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al-Megrahi release is an ever more interesting question.

UPDATE: The questions to John McCain and Joe Lieberman -- who were both in Libya last week and both on the mysterious Malta trip -- mainly dealt with the appropriateness of al-Megrahi's welcome in Libya and only peripherally with the background dealing that might have gone on.
