Lockerbie

by craig on March 11, 2014 12:04 pm in Uncategorized

The information on Lockerbie published in today’s Daily Mail from an Iranian defector, matches precisely what I was shown in a secret intelligence report in the FCO just around the time of the first Iraq war – that a Syrian terrorist group was responsible acting on behalf of Iran.  It was decided that this would be kept under wraps because the West needed Iran and Syria’s quiescence in the attack on Iraq.

I was at the time Head of Maritime Section in the FCO’s Aviation and Maritime Department. I was shown the report by the Head of the Aviation Section, who was deeply troubled by it.

The UK authorities have known for over 20 years that Megrahi was innocent.  The key witness, a Maltese shopkeeper named Tony Gauci, was paid a total of US $7 million for his evidence by the CIA, and was able to adopt a life of luxury that continues to this day. The initial $2 million payment has become public knowledge but that was only the first instalment.  This was not an over-eagerness to convict the man the CIA believed responsible; this was a deliberate perversion of justice to move the spotlight from Iran and Syria to clear the way diplomatically for war in Iraq.

It will of course be argued, probably correctly, that now Syria and Iran are the western targets, it is in the interests of the CIA for the true story to come out,  (minus of course their involvement in perverting the course of justice).  That is why we now hear it was Syria and Iran.  But it so happens that is in fact the truth.  Even the security services and government can tell the truth, when the moment comes that the truth rather than a deceit happens to be a tactical advantage to them.

  1. Thanks Craig.

    Funny how many of these conspiracy theories turn out to be true…

  2. Muammar Gaddafi was a decent and honourable man. may he Rest In Peace

  3. Not only is Megrahi innocent, but other parties are guilty of this terrorist atrocity against a civilian plane.

    All British FCO and SIS officials who had a knowing part in this should be prosecuted for assisting the terrorists after the event and for perverting the course of justice.

    Richard Dearlove of SIS should also be prosecuted for his part in the murder of Princess Diana, but he won’t be.

    The chances of such prosecutions happening are zero. Saying they’d release Megrahi on “compassionate” grounds if he dropped his appeal but “couldn’t” release him if he didn’t (how compassionate!) is a classic British piece of talking with forked tongues, of office-holding filth using blackmail against innocent parties to cover up their own and others’ crimes. I be there were lots of juicy contracts in connection with Camp Zeist too.

    Even if there’s an ‘inquiry’, it will only mean more money for Lord Muck and lots of business for a hotel.

  4. Craig, you will I think be interested to see yesterday’s e-mail exchange between the producer of Al Jazeera’s “Lockerbie: What Really Happened” and Frank Duggan, the head of Victims of Pan Am Flight 103 Inc:

    On 10 March 2014, the day before transmission of Al Jazeera’s documentary “Lockerbie: What Really Happened”, producer Ms Anar Virji contacted Frank Duggan asking for an interview:

    Hi -
    I’m a producer with Al Jazeera English TV in Washington DC.
    My reporter Shihab Rattansi and I are working on a piece today about the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and evidence that shows that Libyan Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was not behind the bombing. There’s a documentary airing on Al Jazeera with evidence that Iran was behind the bombing and they planned it in retaliation for the downing of a commercial Iranian jet by the USS Vincennes in 1988.
    We’re interested in speaking to someone from the Victims of Pan Am Flight 103 about this investigation and their reaction to it. This would be for an on-camera, taped interview we’d like to do before 4pm eastern today, if possible. We can do it via Skype or in a studio.
    I can be reached on this e-mail and the number below. Thanks in advance for your help.
    Best,
    Ms Anar Virji
    Producer

    Frank Duggan declined to take part:

    From: Frank Duggan
    Date: March 10, 2014 at 10:42:27 AM EDT
    To: “contact@victimsofpanamflight103.org”
    Subject: Request from Al Jazeera English TV
    I am sorry to say that I must decline your offer to appear on your DC program. We are very familiar with Al Jazeera and your perspective on the bombing of Pan Am 103. Your documentary has “evidence that Iran was behind the bombing”? There is not a shred of evidence to support this view. You are just trying to point the finger away from Libya, once more, and it is disgraceful. Nearly everyone thought, 25 years ago, that Iran was behind it, and they certainly had motive, but there was never any evidence to prove it. There was enough evidence to point to Libya that a court found the defendant, Megrahi, guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, as a conspirator in an act of state sponsored terrorism. This was upheld on appeal, and is a settled matter for the families of the victims of Pan Am 103. If there was proof that others were involved, from Iran especially, we would want that explored. There is nothing on your “documentary” that we have not heard before, nor have the investigators and prosecutors who worked diligently for two decades to find the guilty parties. Your documentary will no doubt trot out the usual conspiracy mavens and Libya shills, who have been part of the Megrahi legal defense, and will not have any of the public servants, nearly two thousand police, investigators and prosecutors, who disagree with your position.
    Frank Duggan, President
    Victims of Pan Am 103, Inc.

    Former diplomat Patrick Haseldine commented:

    “It’s not surprising that Frank Duggan insists on Megrahi’s guilt and Libya’s responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing. Libya paid $2.7 billion in compensation to the families of the 270 Lockerbie victims ($10 million each) in a deal brokered by Frank Duggan and the US lawyers Kreindler & Kreindler, Speizer Crowse, Allan Gerson and Mark Zaid who together shared 30% of the $2.7 billion Lockerbie settlement figure in contingency fees ($810,000,000). If Megrahi is not guilty, and Libya is not responsible, those lawyers and the victims’ families will have to refund the $2.7 billion to the new Libyan government.”

  5. Britain and America have indeed invested in the Zionist art of deception where truth is left to decay in some remote place hidden from view for 70 or more years.

    American families and some US experts linked to the Lockerbie disaster still vehemently believe that Libya was guilty of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 and are angry over fresh claims that Iran and Palestinian terrorists based in Syria were actually the culprits.

    These families and experts also believe a man in an Afghanistan cave planned the destruction of the Twin Towers that murdered 3000 innocent breadwinners.

    Rarely truth forms a sure fire parallel to the morning sun as in Iran Air Flight 655, an Iran Air civilian passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai that was shot down by the United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes on 3 July 1988.

    All 290 on board, including 66 children and 16 crew, died.

  6. Sorry, I mean Megrahi was innocent. He died in 2012. The British government should pay a large amount of compensation to his family. Will they even offer tuppence unless his family take the bastards to one of their own kangaroo courts?

  7. Paul Foot and Private Eye were saying all this years ago

  8. From what I understand, the recent revelations have arisen significantly from several years of investigative work done by Al-Jazeera. I agree the cynics will not be easily assuaged, and there’s good reason anyway to treat this type of news with scepticism, but it certainly seems nearer the truth.

    One side point, and this may be a function of US bureaucratic infighting, I’ve seen signs of the FBI and CIA each blaming the other for the pay-off of Gauci. So more evidence of cracks in the official facade.

  9. I hate to sound wise after the fact, but it always seemed to me that Iran would want to take some revenge from the shooting down of their plane by America. It always seemed logical that that revenge would be of the “eye for an eye” type.

    What angers me is that Scottish justice was so badly used for the required ends of the USA government.

  10. Just want to record my gratitude to you, once again, Craig, for your invaluable service to truth.

    Thank you so much for all the suffering you have been prepared to bear for integrity.

    Without people like you the malignancy of the world would be unabated, and its grief would equal only despair. You truly lift my heart. God bless you.

  11. “It will of course be argued, probably correctly, that now Syria and Iran are the western targets, it is in the interests of the CIA for the true story to come out …”

    And I thought that the US is currently trying to make a deal with Iran? If so, I would suggest someone who doesn’t like that deal is cooking up that story now.

    AFAIK, the story itself is told and quite well known for several years. I can’t imagine that one witness of questionable credibility would change the situation of evidence for that story much.

    What I wonder is that the “new” witness lives in Germany. From Germany, whose intel services are said to have quite close cooperation with the Israelis, because solidarity with Israel is regarded as “reason of state” in Germany, there came a lot of interesting witnesses or evidences. For example there was the famous “curveball”. And then, recently, there was a “German” radio interception regarding the Damascus chemical attack.

    So, to be honest, I don’t suspect the CIA to be the main party here pulling the strings.

  12. Craig, a fortnight before the Lockerbie bombing, I was suspended from the FCO’s Information Department for writing a letter to ‘The Guardian’ in which I criticised Mrs Thatcher for being soft on apartheid South Africa’s state sponsored terrorism.

    I would discount that “secret intelligence report” you saw two years after Pan Am 103 went down as part of a disinformation campaign and an elaborate cover-up of those really responsible.

    Please see my article “Flight 103: It was the Uranium” published in ‘The Ecologist’ on 6 January 2014.

    (http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2224221/flight_103_it_was_the_uranium.html)

  13. Hi Patrick,

    Of course I am very well aware of your theories which are certainly plausible. But the intelligence I saw was regarded as very inconvenient, something out of line with the official story which needed to be buried; it wasn’t being put up as a blind.

  14. So now we can have a high tech war on Iran’s alleged nuclear development program because of the most belated disclosure of its revenge attack on PanAm Flight 103 without an explanation of the ongoing Iran-Iraq war, Iran-Contra playing both sides of the conflict, the Palme assassination and the planned non-nuclear showdown with the USSR, the crucial Syrian arms dealer al-Kassar deciding he could play the double game too, and his taking out his pursuers on the plane when they had gotten the goods on him too – only more bits about the set-up of everyone’s fallguy Libya, especially al-Megrahi.

    The West has become an open sewer when it comes to proper governance!

  15. @Patrick – Do you know for a fact or have good reason for believing that the disinformation campaign that you mention was run by the FCO Information Department?

    Certainly I would expect support for a second fake explanation to be circulated to attract a proportion of non-believers in the first. Including officials in various countries’ intelligence services and other departments. Which would be bread and butter for the OID, so you obviously know what you are talking about.

    There has certainly been a lot of disinformation about Namibian yellowcake.

    On uranium: do you know about the big deal under which Britain got uranium from Canada? Backed by Churchill. Land was owned by the Rothschilds. Written about in Frederic Morton’s book. I think even that twit Niall Ferguson mentions it. The British nuclear power set-up has always been a total rip-off.

    @Craig – Did you tell the Attorney General? Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee? Commons Speaker?

    (Voice off: They’re all as pure as the driven snow, you know).

  16. So pleased this has been raised. There is an excellent book by Professor Francis A. Boyle called ‘Destroying Libya and World Order’. Boyle was al Megrahi’s legal representative. Libya’s compliance with International Law. The US and UK did not.

    “The reason why they never turned over the evidence to Libya was that the evidence against Libya was not there. It had been concocted by the C.I.A., F.B.I., and Scotland Yard. Air Malta and the Maltese government had already issued an unofficial statement that, based on their investigation, there was no unaccompanied baggage from Malta to Frankfurt, and that they had been able to account for all the baggage from Malta to Frankfurt.”

    The bomb was loaded at Heathrow. Nearly everybody believes that now, especially after Morag Kerr’s book published this year, or at the very end of last year.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-15503/Lockerbie-bomb-planted-Heathrow.html

    Cameron believes that al Megrahi was responsible and does not want an inquiry – unless he’s changed his mind. The UK has something very sinister to hide in this cover-up and as I’ve mentioned before no UK prime minister has called for an inquiry. Some have been saying that the bomb was planted at Heathrow for years. This blog contains details of the reported break-in at Heathrow which was never, or inadequately investigated at the time, and by the ‘disgrace’ of a trial that followed, from which Frank Duggan and others have made so much money.

    http://lockerbiedivide.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/london-origin-theory.html

  17. Should have read: “Libya complied with international law.”

  18. If Britain knew that Megrahi was not responsible, why go to so much trouble building a case and holding a trial in the Netherlands? (Ans: A sop to the Americans). Why would Gaddafi agree to such a thing? (Ans: Also a sop to the Americans). How do we know that the Iranian defector was reliable? (Ans: It appeared in a “secret intelligence report in the FCO”). But should we believe any “secret intelligence report in the FCO” after reading “Murder in Samarkand”? (Ans: Why not, if the author of “Murder in Samarkand” himself quotes it? Finally, what should be our criterion for belief or disbelief? (Ans: what Craig says, since he has read many a “secret intelligence report in the FCO”, right? :) )

    1. BACKGROUND -

    Iran Air Flight 655 was an Iran Air civilian passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai that was shot down by the United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes on 3 July 1988. The attack took place in Iranian airspace, over Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf, and on the flight’s usual flight path. The aircraft, an Airbus A300 B2-203, was destroyed by SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles fired from the Vincennes.

    All 290 on board, including 66 children and 16 crew, died.[1] This attack ranks ninth among the deadliest disasters in aviation history, the incident retains the highest death toll of any aviation incident in the Indian Ocean and the highest death toll of any incident involving an Airbus A300 anywhere in the world.[2] The Vincennes had entered Iranian territorial waters after one of its helicopters drew warning fire from Iranian speedboats operating within Iranian territorial limits.[3]

    According to the Iranian government, Vincennes negligently shot down the civilian aircraft: the airliner was making IFF squawks in Mode III (not Mode II used by Iranian military planes), a signal that identified it as a civilian craft, and operators of Vincennes mistook for Mode II. [4]

    According to the United States Government, the crew incorrectly identified the Iranian Airbus A300 as an attacking F-14 Tomcat fighter (a plane made in the United States and operated at that time by only two forces worldwide, the United States Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force). The Vincennes was signaling warnings on a military channel which the civilian plane could not technically receive. Hence, the airliner was unable to respond to several requests for it to change course.

    The event generated a great deal of controversy and criticism of the United States. Some analysts have blamed U.S. military commanders and the captain of Vincennes for reckless and aggressive behavior in a tense and dangerous environment.[5][6]

    In 1996, the United States and Iran reached “an agreement in full and final settlement of all disputes, differences, claims, counterclaims” relating to the incident at the International Court of Justice.[7] As part of the settlement, the United States agreed to pay US$61.8 million, an average of $213,103.45 per passenger, in compensation to the families of the Iranian victims. However, the United States has never admitted responsibility, nor apologized to Iran.[8]

    As of February 2014, Iran Air was still using flight number IR655 on the Tehran–Dubai route as a memorial to the victims, contrary to the informal convention amongst many other airlines that discontinue flight numbers associated with tragedies.

    2. POINT

    There’s a telling parallel here. The Oscar Pistorius trial is still in progress, but right now it looks -in one version – as if he was a gun freak who couldn’t wait to have an excuse to shoot someone – like an intruder – with no comeback. So he pumped three dumdum rounds into his girlfriend, whom he assumed was an intruder and she died. So it goes. In another account, he knew damn fine who it was, had just had an argument with her, and it was intentional.

    No doubt the court will be able to decide the truth.

    So – trigger-happy USN grunt on the Vincennes, just languishing for the chance to fire his macho weapon, and unable to distinguish between an F-14 and an Airbus on the radar?
    Or, just a mass-murderer? Under orders?

    Sadly, this never got to a court.

  22. Some things don’t quite make sense. Iranian defector is probably another Gauci-type stooge who, if they pull off their attack on Iran due to this disclosure (it’s on their New World Order list) will end up with wealth beyond measure. I think the culprit is closer to home, or at least, complicit with western desires. US investigators were too soon on the scene at Lockerbie to have not been in the know beforehand. Bernt Carlsson was almost certainly the target, as Patrick Haseldine has continually argued.

    I need to get some fresh air away from all this shit.

  23. Patrick Haseldine’s charge concerning Lockerbie is of course credible; the intelligence that Craig had the privilege to observe I would describe as nocuous to the treachery in Namibia patently obvious to me having read and memorised ‘not for South Africa Eyes’ secret naval signals at the time.

    http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_analysis/2224221/flight_103_it_was_the_uranium.html

    URENCO supplies nuclear power stations in 15 countries.

    On 22 April 2013, agent Cameron’s coalition government announced plans to sell its share in URENCO, about £3bn.

    In her spirit, agent Cameron serves to prevent prosecution for the Thatcher administration’s criminal morals in the fight for Namibia independence from apartheid South Africa.

    Re-visiting the Iranian connection serves as a convenient smokescreen for the privatization and sale to proceed later this year and another nail in the Lockerbie coffin.

  24. “Why would Gaddafi agree to such a thing? ”

    Look nobody in their wildest dreams thought anyone would be convicted. There just wasn’t any reliable evidence. Even the prosecution was amazed, the UN observer was astonished.

    They assumed Scottish justice was independent of the state and just, it is a long way from either.

  25. Well, you can’t be absolutely certain of always winning unless you’re managing all the teams in play, with a few on the sidelines for those inevitable plan B, C, D and Es.

    ‘Re-visiting the Iranian connection serves as a convenient smokescreen for the privatization and sale to proceed later this year and another nail in the Lockerbie coffin.’

    Unlikely that Al-Jazeera is serving Cameron’s interests, and unlikely that URENCO is so much dirtier a deal than some this government is doing as to warrant a distraction of its own, IMO.

    And what AJ reported is not quite the same as what the UK media have selected for us – it’s not just one debatable agent, but US sources as well:

    Probe identifies suspects over Lockerbie bomb
    Al Jazeera uncovers evidence Iran’s secret service and a Palestinian group were behind bombing of Pan Am flight 103.

    Twenty-five years after the Lockerbie bombing, Al Jazeera has uncovered evidence which casts doubt over the entire investigation and trial into what was the biggest case of mass murder ever seen in Scotland.

    Documents obtained by the network, and verified by security and legal experts, point to the involvement of Iran’s secret service, Hezbollah and the armed group The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) – General Command.

    The investigation found that the PFLP was responding to requests from Iran to avenge the shooting down of Iran Air Flight 655 by the USS Vincennes in July 1988, which killed 290 people.

    Classified US Defence Intelligence Agency cables obtained by Al Jazeera say: “The execution of the operation was contracted to Ahmad Jabril, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command (PLFLP-GC) leader. Money was given to Jabril upfront in Damascus for initial expense. The mission was to blow up a Pam-Am flight.”

    Al Jazeera’s investigation found a meeting took place between the parties in Malta nine months before the bombing of the Pan Am flight, with the purpose of the meeting to discuss potential US and Israeli targets to attack and, or, blow up.

    The Al Jazeera investigation also gains access to the confidential Bird Report, which was commissioned by Abdelbaset Al-Megrahi, the Libyan convicted of the bombing, before he dropped his appeal.

    Al Jazeera also interviewed a senior Iranian intelligence official and a former CIA agent.

    “Six days after taking down the Airbus there was a meeting in Beirut, we know where it occurred. The Iranians went to the PFLP-GC, the break off faction and said, alright you guys know how to bring down airplanes, bring down five, five civilian airliners,” former CIA agent Robert Baer said.

    Criticising the subsequent path taken by the investigation and resultant trial, Baer said his opinion was not a controversial one among those involved.

    “The CIA and the FBI investigations diverged completely… because the case was, being run by the Department of Justice, in complete disregard to the intelligence. As far as I can tell is someone said, look, Libya’s vulnerable to prosecution, small country, Gaddafi’s hated, let’s go for it.

    “It was an executive decision, and then once that happened everybody lined up. So the people in the intelligence community could just go bugger off you know. Yeah fine, take your theories and run off. And that works until the evidence is proved, you know, to be faulty.

    “I’m not giving you a controversial opinion here. I kept up with all of the CIA, intelligence side, and to a man they’ve said it was Iran.”

    Al Jazeera tracked down two of the PFLP-GC members to whom the evidence points.

    Abu Talb now lives in Sweden, while bomb-maker Marwan Khreesat lives in Jordan. A source close to him confirmed to Al Jazeera that the attack had been commissioned by Iran, and that the bomb was put on board the plane at London’s Heathrow airport.

    The documentary is Al Jazeera’s third in-depth investigation into the Lockerbie atrocity. The previous films gained exclusive access to the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission report and raised serious questions about the safety of Megrahi’s conviction.

    Al Jazeera’s Jamal Elshayyal reports.

  27. @N_ asks: Do you know for a fact or have good reason for believing that the disinformation campaign that you mention was run by the FCO Information Department?

    Following my suspension on 7 December 1988 until John Major sacked me on 2 August 1989, I visited the FCO just twice: for a disciplinary hearing on 28 February 1989; and a meeting of the No 2 Diplomatic Service Appeal Board on 5 May 1989 (https://wikispooks.com/wiki/Patrick_Haseldine#Disciplinary_Hearing). To answer your question, I can be pretty certain that there was a Lockerbie disinformation campaign but that it was NOT run by the FCO Information Department.

    For more information, please see my ‘Facebook’ article “Lockerbie: Ayatollah’s Vengeance Exacted By Botha’s Regime” (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1770061725559&l=78adbc28db).

  28. A SERIOUS ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY

    These contentions in the Daily Mail are much more serious than just the Lockerbie incident alone. Because if true, they demonstrate that our secret security / intelligence apparatus has deliberately overridden the Rule of Law, knowingly had innocent people convicted while letting the guilty go free, made a mockery of Scotland’s justice system, and perverted the course of justice in almost every way imaginable.

    That parliament, the media, and the legal/court system cannot deal effectively with justice where our secret Spy Agencies are involved should tell us just quite how far we have progressed along the road to a totalitarian state.

    But it’s not just the manipulation of the truth (and of the media) that these secret Spy Agencies are guilty of. They also conduct campaigns to persecute whistle-blowers and perceived enemies of power-elites, just like the Stasi did in the former East Germany. The Stasi called these persecution programs Zersetzen as they are not intelligence or counter intelligence operations aimed at enemies of the State – they are secret police operations aimed at innocent citizens. Click on my name and you will see 25 well-witnessed examples of where Zersetzen has happened to others; you can check these examples out on the internet to verify.

    Once proud organizations like MI5 / MI6 and Canada’s CSIS are mutating into a Gestapo, a secret police, and are becoming the biggest threat to our democracy since the end of the cold war.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

    “The Maltese Double Cross[edit]

    Allan Francovich produced, wrote and directed The Maltese Double Cross – Lockerbie, a controversial documentary which challenged the official view that Libya was responsible for the sabotage of Pan Am Flight 103. Instead, an unwitting drug mule, with links to Hezbollah and to both the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the CIA, was alleged to have carried the bomb on board the aircraft.

    When his British production company, Hemar Enterprises, released the film in November 1994, it was immediately threatened with legal action by lawyers acting for a US government official (believed to have been the DEA’s Michael Hurley). Screenings of the film at the 1994 London Film Festival, at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and at several universities were prevented. But Labour MP Tam Dalyell ignored libel warnings and went ahead and showed the film at the House of Commons on November 16, 1994.

  32. AKA, Oswald LeWinter…http://www.leopoldreport.com/LRsajt74.html

    ” Oswald LeWinter is the disinformant who did most damage in the Palme murder investigation. He kept the Police Investigation Group (PU) working for four years. LeWinter led an incredible double life. Behind the scenes, he was a professional disinformant, intelligence agent, and infiltrator, operating under cover names like “Y”, “Razin”, Razine”, “Racine”, “Wamma”, and “Ibrahim Razin”. The face he showed the world, however, was as a sophisticated and respected literature professor who had authored the book “Shakespeare in Europe ‘, a politician, and a poet.”

  33. Ben,

    I can see no link between Lockerbie and the Rabbi – am inclined to delete your last two posts as wildly off topic, unless you can point me to something I’ve missed.

  34. The CIA heroin connection has more bearing than most think. Anyone remember farmer Wilson’s suitcase found in the wreckage? Paul Foot wrote about it

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/52409411/Lockerbie-The-Flight-From-Justice-Paul-Foot-Private-Eye-Special-Report

    ANOTHER weird story from the hours after thedisaster came from Mr Jim Wilson, a farmer at Tundergarth Mains.

    After the crash, his fields were littered with bodies and debris from the airliner. The mess included a suitcase, neatly packed with a powdery substance that looked like drugs. He was worried in case the substances could harm hissheep and he contacted the police. Eventually, after somedelay, the suitcase was removed. Farmer Wilson was one of the first witnesses to give evidence when the fatal accident inquiry started in October 1990. He answered questions, butwas very surprised when no one asked him about the drugs suitcase.

    Twice the Lord Advocate’s office promised relatives thatthe matter would be “taken care of” but it never was. Somerelatives discovered that the name printed on the suitcase,which Jim Wilson remembered exactly, did not appear onthe list of passengers for Pan Am flight 103.

    Others couldn’t help remembering Dr Fieldhouse’s testimony that he had labelled 59 bodies, while the policehad labelled 58. Was Tony Lloyd from the Foreign Office referring to this suitcase when he wrote to Tam Dalyell: “as for the allegation that United States officials removed a case from the wreckage, this did not happen”?

    Mr Lloyd followed the assurance with another of the same kind. “There is no question,” he wrote, “of any items being released in the early stages of the investigation before their evidential value could be established.”

    In the recent murder trial of two Libyans for the Lockerbie bombing, reference was made to the fact that a suitcase belonging to Major Charles McKee, a senior CIA agent who had been involved in the negotiations for the release of hostages in Beirut, had been mysteriously carried away from the piles of wreckage left by the crash and even had a large hole cut into it before it was returned to theinvestigators. The specific intention of cutting the hole, it was agreed, was to inspect the contents of the suitcase long before its evidential value could be established.

    The fact that Major McKee and his CIA associate Matthew Gannon, formerly deputy CIA station chief in Beirut, were among the dead passengers may have explained at least some of the mysterious happenings in and around Lockerbie after the disaster.

    Some of these matters were addressed in a book written almost immediately afterwards by Scottish radio reporter David Johnston. He suggested on radio at the time that the investigation had been held up for at least two days while the CIA hunted for and inspected the luggage of their dead officers.

    Support for this theory came from another strange discrepancy. Martin and Rita Cadman, whose son Bill, a sound designer and director, had been one of the victims on the plane, were infuriated early on when they noticed that their son’s death certificate was dated 24 December, when he had obviously died on the 21st. In all the time since they have never had any credible explanation for this discrepancy.

    Almost as soon as his broadcast went on air, Mr Johnston was astonished to be approached by two very senior police officers who demanded to know the source for his story. When he refused, he was begged to betray his source to anyone he liked, even the prime minister, Margaret Thatcher. He declined, and heard no more.

    But as these stories started to circulate among those of the bereaved relatives who were already inclined to doubt the official stories, the suspicion started to grow that there was more to this disaster than tragedy or terrorism, and that some other force outside the normal processes of democratic government was at work. Everything that happened in the next twelve years sustained and nurtured that suspicion.

    The Lockerbie conviction was full of holes to begin with. Anybody who knows anything about terrorism in the 1980s knows the CIA got mixed up in heroin trafficking out of the Bekaa Valley during the hostage crisis in Lebanon. The Lockerbie conspiracy had been a false flag operation to kill off a joint CIA and Defense Intelligence investigation into kick backs from Islamic Jihad, in exchange for protecting the heroin transit network.

    According to my own CIA handler, Dr. Richard Fuisz, who’d been stationed in Lebanon and Syria at the time, the CIA had established a protected drug route from Lebanon to Europe and on to the United States. His statements support other sources that “Operation Corea” allowed Syrian drug dealers led by Monzer al-Kassar (also linked to Oliver North in the Iran-Contra scandal) to ship heroin to the U.S. ON Pan Am flights, in exchange for intelligence on the hostages’ whereabouts in Lebanon. The CIA allegedly made sure that suitcases carrying heroin were not searched at customs. Nicknamed the “Godfather of Terror,” Al Kassar is now serving a prison sentence for conspiring with Colombian drug cartels to assassinate U.S. nationals.

    Building up to Lockerbie, the Defense Intelligence team in Beirut, led by Maj. Charles Dennis McKee and Matthew Gannon, suspected that CIA infiltration of the heroin network might be prolonging the hostage crisis. If so, the consequence was severe. AP Reporter Terry Anderson got chained in a basement for 7 years, while 96 other high profile western hostages suffered beatings, mock executions and overall trauma. McKee’s team raised the alarms in Washington that a CIA double agent profiting from the narco-dollars might be warning the hostage takers whenever their dragnet closed in. Washington sent a fact-finding team to Lebanon to gather evidence.

    On the day it was blown out of the sky, Pan Am 103 was carrying that team of CIA and FBI investigators, the CIA’s Deputy Chief assigned to Beirut, and three Defense Intelligence officers, including McKee and Gannon, on their way to Washington to deliver a report on the CIA’s role in heroin trafficking, and the impact on terrorist financing and the hostage crisis. In short, everyone with direct knowledge of CIA kickbacks from heroin trafficking died on Pan Am 103. A suitcase packed with $500,000 worth of heroin was found in the wreckage. It belonged to investigators, as proof of the corruption.

    The punch line was that the U.S. State Department issued an internal travel advisory, warning that government officials should get off that specific flight on that specific day, because Pan Am 103 was expected to get bombed. That’s right, folks! The U.S. had prior knowledge of the attack.

    Unforgivably, nobody told Charles McKee or Matthew Gannon. But other military officials and diplomats got pulled off the flight-making room for a group of students from Syracuse University traveling stand by for the Christmas holidays.

    It was a monstrous act! But condemning Megrahi to cover up the CIA’s role in heroin trafficking has struck many Lockerbie afficiandos as grossly unjust. Add the corruption of purchased testimony– $4 million a pop- and Megrahi’s life sentence struck a nerve of obscenity.

    It struck Gadhaffi as grievously offensive, as well-The United Nations had forced Libya to fork over $2.7 billion in damages to the Lockerbie families, a rate of $10 million for every death. Once it became clear the U.S. paid two key witnesses $4 million each to commit perjury, spook gossip throughout the summer was rife that Gadhaffi had taken bold action to demand compensation from U.S. (and probably British) oil corporations operating in Libya. More than likely, Libya’s demands for kick backs and compensation extended to other European oil conglomerates as well-particularly France and Italy-who are now spearheading attacks on Libya.

    I knew last summer there would be trouble. Payback would be a b-tch on both sides. You don’t lock an innocent man in prison for 10 years on bogus charges of terrorism, and expect forgiveness. The United States and Britain had behaved with remarkable selfishness. You’ve got to admit that Gadhaffi’s attempt to balance the scales of justice demonstrated a flair of righteous nationalism.

    Alas, Gadhaffi was playing with fire, no matter how justified his complaint. You don’t strike a tyrant without expecting a tyrant to strike back.

    CIA/Drug running seems to cross every conspiracy thread. Where there is smoke…?

  36. “The motive for the assassination was very complex, and related to the many various arenas where the Reagan administration and PM Olof Palme were on colliding courses. One of these arenas was about the Swedish arms producer Bofors’ illegal deliveries of heavy weapons and ammunition to Iran, which later was revealed to be part of the Iran-Contra scandal. In the autumn of 1985, UN Peace Mediator in the Iran/Iraq war and Prime Minister Olof Palme stopped the shipments after he had been made aware of them”

The hostage crisis was a legitimate CIA concern. The CIA Station Chief of Beirut, William Buckley, was also kidnapped by Islamic Jihad and brutally tortured to death, his body dumped in the street in front of CIA headquarters.

    “Will the Diana inquest hear that Fayed made his money after he married Samira Khashoggi, the sister of the international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, who employed him in his import business in Saudi Arabia.

    Will the Diana inquest hear the alleged the evidence of former spy Richard Tomlinson:

    “In 1992 I was working on an operation to recover high-tech weapons from the former Soviet Union. This operation was being conducted in collaboration with a very powerful arms dealer whose exact identity I did not know.

    “When I read the file I discovered that this arms dealer was in very frequent contact with Mr Mohamed Al Fayed. I saw that the MI6 informant supplying this information had a code beginning with P, followed by several numbers. As this source was mentioned several times I tried to find out who it was. It was a Frenchman who was head of security at the Ritz Hotel.” – Shaphan: December 2006

    Reportedly, Khashoggi was implicated in the Iran-Contra Affair as a key middleman in the arms-for-hostages exchange along with Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar.”

  40. Craig,

    I’ve never understood the Lockerbie disaster. What was expected to be achieved by bringing down the plane? Was it a spectacular, anonymous warning to Western powers or a publicity stunt for a ‘noble’ struggle?

  41. Hi Ben – My mother bless her on occasion would say Princess Di ‘was murdered by order of that awful horribilis Prince Phillip,’ to which my response was always, ‘don’t be silly mum’ albeit noting the conspiracy details.

    That was until Robin Cook talking to me about Iraq after a BBC ‘Question Time’ explained how Tony Blair ordered intrusive surveillance of Diana via the NSA/GCHQ in the hope that any intelligence found could be relayed to HM The Queen directly in his weekly meetings.

    Diana’s car was a 1994 Mercedes Benz S280 E (Sonderklasse 2800cm3 Einspritzung), registered to Etoile Limousine with a number 688 LTV 75. The car retained some vital clues until disassembled by French investigators long before it arrived in Britain in a number of parts.

    Post has been notified by the Federal Aviation Administration that on December 5, 1988, an unidentified individual telephoned a U.S. diplomatic facility in Europe and stated that sometime within the next two weeks there would be a bombing attempt against a Pan American aircraft flying from Frankfurt to the United States.

    The FAA reports that the reliability of the information cannot be assessed a this point, but the appropriate police authorities have been notified and are pursuing the matter. Pan Am has also been notified.

  43. Greetings Mark; I think ABS in the cars of the 90′s were run from a motherboard, but all you need to do is squirt some oil on one brake rotor and hard breaking will pull to the other side.

    GPS hacking could also be involved in the Malaysian flight

  44. Come on Craig. Just because you say a report doesn’t mean it’s true.

  45. @Mark Golding – The official story about the carboxyhaemoglobin level in driver Henri Paul’s blood was ridiculous. Had he really had that level in his blood, he would not have been able to stand up, let alone drive a car. As for the vehicle the Mercedes came into contact with in the tunnel, a white Fiat Uno, disappearing into thin air, no sensible person could really believe that. The Pont d’Alma tunnel is in the middle of Paris embassyland, one of the most surveilled areas on earth.

    I thought it was an S280, not an S280E. The car which Mohamed al-Fayed was driven in later that night was a S600E.

    Interesting info about Cookie. Was he murdered too? I recall that when he resigned from the government he expressed his outrage at the pathetic failure of the west to enforce UN Security Council Resolution 242.

    I can’t see why Tony Blair would have had to order it. The head of SIS has direct access to the monarch. The thing they carry to prove it is known as the “ivory”. Doesn’t the head of GCHQ have the same access? Maybe Craig knows.

    I guess you know about the royal family’s ‘Way Ahead Group’?

  46. all you need to do is squirt some oil on one brake rotor and hard breaking will pull to the other side.

    Source?

    Would only work if you know there’s going to be some hard braking – or you cause some.

    Incidentally the S280 was stolen from Etoile for a while and then recovered.

  47. “”Source?” That’s classified.

  48. “Would only work if you know there’s going to be some hard braking – or you cause some.”

    Are you familiar with the circumstances of the head-on collision with bridge abutment?

  49. Sorry, Craig. Now we’re drifting off-course.

  54. I’m glad you have confirmed that, Mr. Murray.

    Those of us who have never had access to the corridors of power nonetheless heard rumours to that effect at the time. I seem to remember Tony Benn saying something about it back in the days when he was still on T.V. There is also an interesting article by Gareth Pierce which I read a few years ago entitled “The Framing of Al Magrahi” or something like that. I assume that it must still be findable on the web for those who are interested. It makes pretty interesting – if horrifying – reading.

  58. Lockerbie the gift that goes on giving;

    Gaddafi paid $2000 million to compensate the relatives of the Murkans killed. In fact his son (the same one who is in the hands of the rebels come government of the Libya) was complaining about the untethered greed of those involved in negotiating the amounts of the compensation.

    Megrahi was convicted and kept in prison as the evildoer whom planned it all. He was hounded onto his death bed, and indignant medjia kept on hounding him, pity that ghosts cannot be hounded, there should be a law against that!

    The so called expert witness who also had testified in the US courts for various other convictions; turned out he was a liar, and the trails in US collapsed and the the fiasco did not have an iota of effect on the conviction of Megrahi, who was convicted on the testimony of the expert witness (the liar whom was exposed for lying in US).

    The expert testimony did identify the part of the pcb which was the “trigger mechanism” that had been found by a fortuitous perambulations of a Bobby on his beat, whom stumbled upon the bit of pcb two weeks after the crash and twenty odd miles away in a forest somewhere in Scotland!

    But
    __________ Hang on we Misspelled that __________________

    It was Iran wot done it!!!!

    We now have all manner of evidence that Syria and Iran had been in cahoots and blown up the Pan Am flight, with the death rays of a weapon that world has not seen so far produced by the North Koreans, and shipped out through Moscow (they are are in the dog house too at the minute). The said death ray has since ricocheted to the present day and hit the Malaysian flight which is also a Boeing!

    There you have it, case shut!

    No he wouldn’t have won an appeal, the Northern Lighthouse Board would have put a stop to that. His lawyers were sure he would win the appeal, the evidence was overwhelming that he should have won the appeal. That wouldn’t have been enough.

  68. Why not add that Putin was advising Syria and Iran at the time? Surely that fact too must have been in your secret brief? Absolutely weird series of posts More than odd somehow. Almost creepy/

    We have our disagreements, Fred, but that isn’t one of them. Yes, an appeal would have brought forward incontrovertible evidence that everyone except Megrahi had been lying through their teeth to suit some filthy political end, so the only option was the compassionate getout clause. I’d only be faintly surprised – on technical grounds alone – if they’d found some way of giving Megrahi prostate cancer.

    …and I am sorry to say it looks like Salmond knew the back story in full. Bliar was terribly offended at the suggestion Salmond had been leaned on by London…he may have been for once telling the truth. No leaning was needed.

  72. The trouble with facts is that you cannot control them; but you can control belief in the ‘truth’ by weaving it with the moral necessity of justice.

    Therefore any system that wanted absolute control over the people’s minds, must first destroy the credibility of all the facts. Second, it must destroy all morality, because if people cared about the truth, they might do something silly, like discover the pertinent facts for themselves; or dare to scrutinize the logic that links the facts with the truth. So thirdly, the totalitarian State must destroy the ability to test, by hobbling the people’s education.

    Culture takes centuries to evolve, whereas subversion takes only the two decades required to ‘educate’ the next generation.

    And the evidence? Ironically, those who live by subversion leave trust to nothing, and require constant proof. They need to convince themselves that the people are perpetually credulous, such as the show trials that make people appear guilty on slim evidence, fake evidence, or the Pièce de résistance: no evidence whatsoever, but mere allegation; for which the State can control.

  73. “Off-topic: does someone know whether the Scotland Act 1978 is published online somewhere? It doesn’t seem to be at either hansard.millbanksystems.com or legislation.gov.uk. I mean the actual Act, not the Order setting up the referendum.”

    @Kempe

    The ’78 Act never passed to the statute books which is possibly why it isn’t online. Unless you’re interested for historical reasons the ’98 Act is here.

    By being enacted, the 1978 Act ‘passed to the statute book’ and became law.

    It was not put into effect, and was later repealed. Repeal of an entire Act means ‘removal from the statute book’, but surely not from the official record.

    I am interested in the special provisions for Shetland and Orkney in the 1978 Act.

    The Scotland Act (Referendum) Order 1978 (SI 1978/1912) which refers to the Act is online <a href="here). The instrument of repeal was the Scotland Act 1978 (Repeal) Order 1979 (SI 1979/928) appears not to be online.

  74. Craig has certainly convinced me since it is most true.

    All the report lacked was why was the Lockerbie tragedy even more alarming than it seemed.
