Lockerbie Lies & Libya

[This is the headline over an article published yesterday by writer Dean Henderson on his Left Hook website. Although interesting, it places excessive reliance on Juval Aviv’s Interfor Report and the Charles McKee/Monzer al-Kassar theory. Here is one paragraph from the article:]

Both the US and Britain have engaged in a cover-up of the facts. Columnist Jack Anderson reported a telephone conversation between President Bush Sr and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher after the crash in which both agreed that the investigation should be limited so as not to harm the nations’ intelligence communities.  Paul Hudson, an Albany, NY attorney who heads the group Families of Pan Am 103/Lockerbie, lost his 16-year-old daughter in the crash.  “It appears that the government either has the facts and is covering them up, or doesn’t know all the facts and doesn’t want to know”, says Hudson.  In April 1990, the group’s British counterpart UK Families-Flight 103 sent angry letters to both Bush and Thatcher which cited “entirely believable published accounts… Both of you have decided to deliberately downplay the evidence and string out the investigation until the case can be dismissed as ancient history.”
