New Evidence May Link CIA to Pan Am Flight Crash

( – On December 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 disintegrated over Scotland, claiming the lives of 274 on the plane, and 11 people on the ground. This catastrophic incident led to a huge investigation involving both Scottish authorities and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

After a long 3-year inquiry, authorities issued arrest warrants for two Libyan nationals: Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah. Fhimah was acquitted, but Megrahi got a life sentence for his alleged role in the plot.

In November 2022, Abu Agila Al-Marimi, a former Libyan intelligence official, faced charges related to the bombing, with allegations suggesting his involvement in setting the timer for the explosive device. US officials claim that he previously confessed to Libyan authorities that the attack was orchestrated by Libyan intelligence, and even said Gaddafi praised those responsible.

The conviction of Megrahi was primarily based on the testimony of Maltese shopkeeper Tony Gauci, who identified him as the purchaser of specific clothing fragments recovered from the crash site. However, Gauci’s statements are not fully believed to be true, and his testimony is unreliable.

Further making things confusing, investigations by individuals such as Peter Osborne and the late Danny Casolaro suggest a possible connection between the CIA and the Lockerbie bombing. Osborne’s research indicates the involvement of rogue CIA agents, led by Theodore Shackley, in orchestrating the attack, potentially to conceal their illicit activities related to drug trafficking.

Shackley, known for his covert operations during the Cold War era, might’ve worked with other CIA operatives in Laos, where they exploited opium profits to finance black ops. The motive put forward by Osborne and others suggests that the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 may have been a desperate attempt to conceal a whole host of illegal activities within the US govt, orchestrated by a rogue faction within the CIA.
