Um. The material evidence used to implicate Libya in the Lockerbie bombing is a FAKE?

11 November 2008 at 11:16:07 PM

Before I discuss this, remember that 9/11 didn't change everything, there was terrorism before that. But what's the deal with Libya's involvement. This article says that the key evidence, about a bomb timer, was a fake  and also tampered with after the fact.

Bollier, now 70, admits having done business with Libya. "Two years before Lockerbie, we sold 20 MST-13 timers to the Libyan military. FBI agents and the Scottish investigators said one of those timers had been used to detonate the bomb. We were shown a fuzzy photograph and I confirmed the fragments looked as though they came from one of our timers."

However, Bollier was uneasy with the photograph he had been shown and asked to see the fragments. He was finally given permission in 1998 and travelled to Dumfries to see the evidence.

"I was shown fragments of a brown circuit board which matched our prototype. But when the MST-13 went into production, the timers contained green boards. I knew that the timers sold to Libya had green boards. I told the investigators this."

Honestly, I don't think I've given much thought at all over the bombing, i barely remember it. But the first question that popped up in my mind after reading this was "Well,did Libya admit guilt and was there any reason to believe they didn't do it?".  Found this from June 2007 which says that the man who is serving a life sentence for this had been granted an appeal because the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission said it uncovered 6 grounds for believing that a miscarriage of justice had occurred.  Here's one theory about who did it if the Libyan did not.

Abu Talb was in the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command, and was originally named by the Maltese shop-keeper who later identified Megrahi as the man who bought clothes allegedly used to hide the Lockerbie bomb. Talb's cell in Germany built bombs closely matching the device which could have blown up Flight 103. A US former intelligence officer claims to have proof the Iranians funded that cell. Talb got immunity from prosecution over Lockerbie for giving evidence at Megrahi's trial

Or maybe it was someone in Syria.(The Susan Lindauer Deposition.)

Or Lebanese?

In 2004, Libya's prime minister said that they had not admitted responsibility for the bombing.

Libya's prime minister said today that his country had no involvement in the murder of British policewoman Yvonne Fletcher or the Lockerbie bombing.

Shokri Ghanem's explosive comments provoked outrage just weeks after moves began to thaw the relationship between Britain and Libya.

He insisted that Libya had not admitted responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing, but had paid compensation to "buy peace".

Iv'e been reading your excellent blog since early this morning. Very interesting. Now I want to compare dates of when the Lockerbie bombing happened versus other incidents, including the first Iraq war, before and after.
