THE U.S. DEMONIZATION OF LIBYA UNRAVELS: PANEL CALLS FOR NEW TRIAL OF LOCKERBIE DEFENDANT

The Associated Press, usually an organ of the United States government that occasionally disseminates some useful information, reports (June 28, 2007) that a judicial commission has ruled that the sole remaining defendant in the case of a downing of a Pan American passenger airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, should be granted an appeal based on new evidence.

"If the appeal is granted and successful, it could undermine years of investigation, clear Libya of involvement and reopen the debate about who was behind the attack," AP stated in its report.

With all the American government's theatrics over the years regarding this case, it seems that the aircraft downing was a C.I.A. hit on its own people who were about to rat on the agency's drug dealing antics.

Ralph Schoenman and Mya Shonen, on their September 2, 2003 "Taking Aim" broadcast on WBAI, make a convincing argument using a variety of press reports and a hard hitting analysis that ten C.I.A.-connected individuals were on board the Pan Am flight that was downed. The purpose of the destruction of the aircraft, according to the two radio personalities, was to "off" the ten to prevent them from revealing to the public the nature of a covert operation in which they had participated. So that explains all the Lockerbie hype. Don't believe it? Suit yourself, or even better, listen to the program by going to the following link: http://www.takingaimradio.com/shows/audio.html
