The FBI & CIA Covered Up The CIA's Masterminding Of The 1988 Bombing Of Pan Am Flight 103 & Framed Libya For The Terrorist Attack
Pan Am Flight 103 was Pan American World Airways's third daily scheduled transatlantic flight from London's Heathrow International Airport to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
On Wednesday 21 December 1988, the aircraft flying this route—a Boeing 747-121 named Clipper Maid of the Seas—was destroyed by a bomb, killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew members. Eleven people in Lockerbie, south Scotland, were killed as large sections of the plane fell in and around the town, bringing total fatalities to 270.
The FBI put pressure on the Scottish police to ensure evidence was 'swept under the carpet'. This way the FBI and CIA avoided any embarrassment in the framing of Libya in the Lockerbie 'trial', where according to the UK police evidence also was 'made by the CIA'.
Revealed: CIA offered $2m to Lockerbie witness and brother

FPF - Europe - March 8, 2006 - In England today, the Scotsman newspaper again has an article about the unjust influence the US secret police can have on foreign police investigations and their judiciary, the Courts that enforce laws and protect rights guaranteed in Constitutions. To make matters worse, these malversations by the US spooks anew direct the attention to the framed court case against Libya, and the crash of the PANAM plane in Lockerbie.*
The ''sweeping under the carpet'' in Scotland was ordered by the FBI, in connection with the CIA preparing the mainstream media lies and fabricating false evidence for the 'show trial' in Kamp Zeist in The Netherlands. None of the 'leading figures' in Holland - the PNAC pack collaborators in industry, politics, churches or media - to their eternal shame ever reacted against this flagrant injustice.
In this - according to the UN observer 'miscarriage of justice'* concerning the Lockerbie drama, the CIA was 'fixing the evidence around the politics'* In this McKie case forensic experts were forced to give false testimony. - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/mucdr - ''Senior staff in the fingerprint laboratory said they had misgivings over the evidence but had been urged to "fall in line with the evidence''.
Under the title ''FBI ordered McKie case swept under carpet'' the Scotsman publishes the following: ''Pan Am investigator Juval Aviv revealed US agents put pressure on SCRO - McKie faced trial for perjury after denying she left a print at a crime scene - MPs have called for a public inquiry.
"THIS REVELATION MAKES THE CASE FOR AN INQUIRY ABSOLUTELY COMPELLING. IF MINISTERS KNEW ABOUT THIS, THEY SHOULD HAVE DISCLOSED IT TO PARLIAMENT EARLIER." - SNP MSP ALEX NEIL
Juval Aviv - a former Israeli Counterterrorism Intelligence Officer and President/CEO of Interfor Inc. - ] http://tinyurl.com/h3ya9] - who was Pan Am's senior Lockerbie investigator, said officers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation traveled to Scotland to pressure the Scottish Criminal Record Office (SCRO) into a swift resolution of the McKie fingerprint case.
Mr Aviv said that during discussions with two senior members of staff in the fingerprint laboratory at SCRO in 1999 or 2000, both told him they had misgivings over the evidence against Ms McKie but had been urged to "fall in line with the evidence".
Campaigners and politicians, some of whom will tomorrow hold a press conference on the possible links between the two cases, said Mr Aviv's revelation reinforced the urgent need for a public inquiry into the whole McKie affair. The SCRO admitted last night that the FBI met its officers to talk about Lockerbie but vehemently denied any comments were made about the McKie case.
LIBYANS FRAMED FOR BOMBING PAN AM FLIGHT 103 IN 1988
Mr Aviv's accusations centre on an intense period of activity leading up to the trial of two Libyans accused of bombing Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988.* Part of the case against Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi involved a contentious fingerprint lifted from a travel document in Malta. The fingerprint had only 12 matching points to suspected bomber Megrahi; many courts require 16 matching points.
Although the SCRO had nothing to do with identifying it, the credibility of the fingerprint was important. In 1999, a year before the trial was due to get under way at Kamp Zeist, the McKie controversy blew up. The Strathclyde policewoman had been put on trial for perjury after denying she had left a fingerprint at the scene of a crime.
However, scores of international fingerprint experts said the disputed print was not hers and she was acquitted.
REVELATION PUT AT RISK THE CREDIBILITY OF SCOTLAND'S FINGERPRINT SERVICE.
Mr Aviv said it was about this time the FBI flew to Scotland. "I heard about the [McKie] case and FBI putting pressure on the labs. I received phone calls from sources within the fingerprint lab saying the FBI visited Scotland and met with people in charge to discuss falling in line with the [McKie] evidence. They met several times and they co-ordinated actions." He went on: "[The SCRO] was under pressure from the FBI to manufacture evidence to suit this trial and convict the Libyan. [The FBI told it] any scandal that could taint this evidence could really interfere with Lockerbie and should be put under the carpet."
MR AVIV SAID THE FBI VISIT WAS PART OF A LARGER EFFORT TO GAIN CONSENSUS AMONG SCOTTISH INVESTIGATORS OVER LOCKERBIE EVIDENCE.
HE SAID: "THE SOURCES WERE APPALLED.
THAT'S ONE THING THAT YOU DO NOT DO - INTERFERE WITH A COURT CASE IN THE HAGUE AND ACCUSE TWO PEOPLE WHO COULD GET LIFE IN PRISON WITH MANUFACTURED EVIDENCE. THEY [THE SOURCES] WERE FED UP WITH IT."
