glasgow suicide bomber gets his wish….finally

he is on his way to meet allah wonka and the 72 virgin oompa loompas.

LONDON – A man who set himself on fire after allegedly crashing an explosive-laden Jeep into Glasgow Airport died in a hospital on Thursday, Strathclyde Police said Thursday.

Kafeel Ahmed, 27, had been in the hospital for a month with critical burns from the alleged attack on June 30, which followed a day after two failed car bombings in London. [source]

unbelievably, i just read that doctors knew he was a goner from the start. but they kept him on life support anyway, you know, cause health care is so cheap:

The cost of treating and guarding him in intensive care at Glasgow Royal Infirmary was estimated at 30,000 pounds (60,000 dollars) a day, said the Sun.

It reported that Ahmed had been treated using a revolutionary process which involves a skin substitute made from shark cartilage and cows’ tendons.
The Indian terrorism suspect….was kept on a life-support machine as doctors “knew he would not survive,” the Sun newspaper reported Friday. [source]

what is the world coming to when the victims of a terrorist attack will spend $60,000/day to keep the terrorist (who, uh, tried to kill them) comfortable and safe in a hospital bed while he quietly drifts off to an eternal slumber?

you will recall that last month i asked, incredulously:

why in the world is one of the bombers recovering in the ICU at a glasgow hospital?

thankfully, he is dead now.
