Lockerbie: CIA made US State Department attorney ‘lie’ to UN Security Council
This is the headline over an article by Patrick Haseldine published today on Dr Christof Lehmann's NSNBC website. It deals with the published views of Michael Sharf, the US State Department lawyer who drafted the UN Security Council resolutions that imposed economic sanctions on Libya following the refusal to extradite Abdelbaset Megrahi and Lamin Fhimah after they were accused by the United States and the United Kingdom of being responsible for the bombing of Pan Am 103. Mr Sharf (now a professor at Case Western Reserve Law School in Cleveland, Ohio) is reported as saying that the case was “so full of holes it was like Swiss cheese” and should never have gone to trial. The article can be read here.
