Former Scottish Police Officer States that Key Lockerbie Evidence Was Fake

The 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 (which crashed over Lockerbie, Scotland) killed 270 people. The mainstream explanation for the bombing has been that it was the work of Libyan terrorists. A recent statement by a former Scottish police officer, however, casts doubt on this theory. The former officer, who is speaking through attorneys and has not yet revealed his identity, has provided a signed statement that crucial evidence in the bombing trial was fabricated.

If Not Libya, Who?

Well before this recent revelation, the offical story has been greeted with skepticism.

Noel Koch, a US Defense Department official who headed anti-terrorism efforts from 1981-1986, stated to journalist Ian Ferguson in March 2000 that "It was decided by the two governments, by the United States and the United Kingdom, that Libya had been responsible for the bombing of Pan Am 103. I have never believed that, and I don't believe the case will stand against the Libyans."

The case did, however, stand. To the outrage of UN diplomats, one potential key witness for the defense was not allowed to testify. CIA agent Dr Richard Fuisz was served with a court order by the US government gagging him from speaking on the grounds of national security. Before the gag order, Fuisz had spoken with US congressional aide Susan Lindauer, telling her the he knew the identities of the bombers and that they were not Libyan.

In the end Libyan Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al-Megrahi was found guilty. The Libyan government has denied any involvement from the beginning but ended up paying compensation to victims of the bombing in order to, as Prime Minister Shukri Ghanem put it, "buy peace with the west".

Theories

These allegations beg the question: if the evidence was faked, why? If authorities were so sure of Libya's involvement, one would assume they had some sort of proof that could be used as evidence.

There are some interesting theories about the bombing. According to a report by Sherman Skolnick, the bombing was done by the CIA to rid themselves of problem agents that were on board the flight. The 50 or so agents on board were returning from the middle east and had found out about information about Bush Senior's collusion with terrorists in the region.

From Skolnick's Report:
Some were puzzled how FBI agents showed up at the Lockerbie, Scotland crash site in some instances quicker than local authorities.

As stated in an award-winning film documentary about Pan Am flight 103 "Very strange people were at work very early on. Within a matter of three hours there were American accents heard in the town. Over that night there were large numbers, by which I mean 20, 25, 30 people arrived." As reported by British journalist David Ben-Aryeah, in the documentary by producer Allan Francovitch, "The Maltese Double Cross". Francovitch was later murdered as he was working on related documentaries.


This theory may be far out to most, but it's doubtful that Bush Senior, an ex-head of the CIA (who worked in the CIA during the time of the Kennedy assassination and, during his presidency, orchestrated the illegal invasion of Panama), is a stranger to dirty tricks. As the recent lies about the circustances of the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes show, if you want to get away with murder simply work for the state.
