Libyan Justice Minister: Gaddafi Ordered Lockerbie Bombing
As Muammar Gaddafi's power crumbles around him, secrets are starting to come out:
LONDON (BNO NEWS) — Libyan Justice Minister Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil on Wednesday told a Swedish newspaper that Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi ordered the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, which killed 270 people.
Al-Jleil told Stockholm-based newspaper Expressen that Gaddafi was the person who gave the order to bomb Pan Am Flight 103, a daily scheduled transatlantic flight from London Heathrow Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
"I have evidence that Gaddafi ordered the Lockerbie bombing," Al-Jleil was cited as saying by Expressen. "To hide this, he did everything in his power to get Megrahi back from Scotland."
Is anyone really surprised by this? I'm certainly not. I expect we'll learn much more about Gaddafi's role in international terror in the 80's and 90's in the very near future.
