Flimsy evidence

[What follows is a short excerpt from an article with the above title by Oxford-based researcher Jason Pack published yesterday on the US National Public Radio website.]

On flimsy evidence, Libya was found guilty of the devastating 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Europe was finally on board for comprehensive UN sanctions of Libya, which endured from 1992 to 1999.

In 1999, feeling the pinch caused by his decaying oil infrastructure and declining revenues, Gadhafi turned over the two suspected Lockerbie bombers for trial in the Netherlands (only one, Abdelbasset Ali al-Megrahi, was later convicted). This action caused UN sanctions to be suspended. As more countries began trading with Libya, the US policy dating back to Reagan of actively containing Gadhafi and hoping for his ouster was no longer feasible.

In the new millennium, US and British negotiators intensified their covert dealings with Libyan diplomats, and in 2003, Gadhafi made his first payment of compensation to the Lockerbie victims' families. At the same time, the colonel declared his desire to voluntarily give up his weapons of mass destruction program. (...)

From 2004 to 2010, US diplomats and businessman embarked on the long and hard road of normalization. Erratic Libyan behavior and electorally motivated grandstanding by US congressmen — generally on third-tier issues like Gadhafi's desire to pitch a tent in Central Park or Megrahi's release from a Scottish prison for health reasons — frequently derailed progress.

    The „Lockerbie Fraud” is now forensically provable!

    The highly respected “Forensic Institute of the Canton Police”,
    Zurich/Switzerland made two digital pictures (magnified 20 times) which are clearly showing the difference between a “brown” PC Circuit board with 8 (eight) layers of fibreglass (picture No. 1/a) and a “green” circuit board (picture No. 1/b) with 9 (nine) layers of fibreglass.

    A further comparison by Mebo of picture No. 1/a (front side) and the forensic picture serie (PT-35) approved by the court in Zeist proves that the circuit board originates from an 8 (eight) layer circuit board. Witness and expert Allen Feraday (RARDE) confirmed under oath that the picture
    of this laboratory picture (Label 334) shows the real MST-13 fragment
    (PT/35) which was not at forensically changed or worked on. It is the original timer fragment which was allegedly found on Lockerbie ground.

    These facts are proving without a doubt that the MST-13 circuit board
    (PT/35) did not originate from a 20 unit timer delivery to Libya. Those timers had without exceptions “green” 9 (nine) layers of fibreglass boards equivalent to picture No.1/b.!

    The conclusion is clear. The “manipulated” MST-13 fragment which was a key evidence (PT/35) cannot be connected to Libya because it originates from a non-functional “brown” prototype circuit board with 8 (eight) layers of fibreglass. A “brown” board was stolen from the Mebo
    Ltd. Laboratories and manipulated in a criminal manner by officials and presented as fragment “PT/35”! (See affidavit (Official Certification)
    from 18th July 2007, of Engineer Ulrich Lumpert and statement by
    witness Edwin Bollier, by Procurator Ms.M.Watson (13th Sept 1999) in Dumfries UK).

    The honour of Mr. Al Megrahi and the prestige of people Libya's must be finally repaired. Libya and its Official Al Megrahi have nothing to do with the Lockerbie tragedy! The Scottish "Lockerbie-Trial" in Kamp van Zeist, was far from fair and proper.

    The new forensic pictures will be sent to Scotland to GSI. GOV. UK Criminal Law and Licensing, Mr. Walter Drummond-Murray.

  2. Just a few remarks that might reveal a little bit about British "scholarship" on Libyan matters. Of course, the standard of British scholarship, particularly on the matter of independence and disinterest, was set by the London School of Economics, Gaddafi's London-based brothel of scholars who have lately set yet a new standard on how to jump ship even before all the money has dried up.

    Here are the facts:

    1. The article above is misquoted. The title as published on NPR is "Foreign Policy: Libya is too big to fail," which disgrees completely with the claim by British Scholar Robert Black. There is nothing at all in the title about "flimsy evidence." Why is Prof. Black doctoring up the facts? British scholarship, I guess.

    2. Prof. Black also conveniently dropped out a little bit of the author's relevant background. In addition to his being based in Oxford, which Black did mention, the author is also "has worked in both Tripoli and Washington, D.C. on strengthening U.S.-Libya relations." British scholar and Gaddafi collaborator Robert Black did not think it is important to add that little bit. Of course neither source tells the readers in what capacity this Oxford scholar was doing his bidding to "improve relations," and I haven't researched that yet, but I will bet 10 to 1 that this scholar's involvement would be no different other scholars recruited by that pimping organization called the Monitor Group.

    Why is Black forging a title that does not exist and dropping out germane facts that do exist? There is the matter of disinterest... or interest. Take your pick.
