The New York Post has published a claim made by the retired Libyan Justice Minister that Gaddafi himself had ordered the bombing of the PANAM 747 over Lockerbie Scotland in 1988 that killed 270 people and eventually put the airline out of business. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if this was true, and I always reckoned that the British should have invaded Libya and dealt to Gaddafi after the policewoman was shot outside the Libyan embassy in London. Blair too was a disgraceful Gaddafi sycophant.
STOCKHOLM — Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy personally ordered the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which exploded over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988, the former Libyan justice minister said in an interview Wednesday with Swedish newspaper Expressen.
Expressen on Wednesday quoted Mustafa Abdel-Jalil as telling their correspondent in Libya that “I have proof that Khadafy gave the order about Lockerbie.” He didn’t describe the proof.
I always wondered why Gaddafi was trying overly hard to get the convicted bomber (who still has not died) freed. He was probably threatening to spill his guts. Just can’t wait to hear the rebels have strung Gaddafi up.
