'Plane bomber' was CIA agent.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4535661.stm

Luis Posada Carriles is suspected of being involved in the bombing of a passenger plane.

Declassified US government documents show that Luis Posada Carriles worked for the CIA.

The documents reveal that an FBI informer "all but admitted" that Luis Posada Carriles was one of those behind the 1976 bombing of a Cuban passenger plane that killed 73 people.

The documents were released by George Washington University's National Security Archive

One FBI report quoted a confidential source as saying that Mr Luis Posada Carriles was one of several people who met at least twice at a hotel in Caracas, allegedly to discuss bombing a Cubana airlines plane.

Mr Posada was arrested after the bombing, but escaped from prison.

The US documents show that he later joined the covert US operation, led by Oliver North, to rearm the Contra guerrillas.

Mr Posada once boasted of being responsible for a series of bomb attacks on Havana tourist spots in the 1990s.


The US would have to reconcile its traditional sympathy for the politically influential Cuban exiles in Miami and its firm stand against suspected terrorists in the wake of the 11 September 2001 attacks, our correspondent says.

Former CIA agent Philip Agee wrote 'Inside the Company: CIA Diary' (New York, 1975).

Agee wrote that, in Ecuador, almost all political organizations were infiltrated by the CIA, often at the highest levels.

Agee explained that in Ecuador Various CIA front organisations were set up.

These spewed out propaganda. A well-known personality would deliver a speech prepared by the CIA, and then a newspaper editor, or a well-known columnist, would praise it, both gentlemen being on the CIA payroll.

Union leaders were taken over by the CIA.

In virtually every department of the Ecuadorean government there were people working for the CIA.

At one point, the Agency could count amongst this number the men who were second and third in power in the country.

CIA agents would bomb churches or right-wing organizations and make it appear to be the work of leftists.

They would march in left-wing parades displaying signs and shouting slogans of a very provocative anti-military nature.What happens in Ecuador seemingly happens in Scotland and England?

Remember the Lockerbie Bomb?

An internal investigation by Pan Am is believed to have found that the bomb planted on Flight 103 was NOT put on the plane in Malta.

The Pan Am report is believed to have concluded that the bomb was not aimed at the killing of Americans in general, but was targeted specifically to kill a small band of DIA operatives that had uncovered a drugs ring run by a CIA unit in Lebanon.

The drugs-ring is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad agents.

Why do some Scots believe that justice was done at the Lockerbie bomb trial? Because they have been deceived by the CIA.

LOCKERBIE - There were many advance warnings that a bomb was going to be placed on a US aircraft at Frankfurt airport.For example, on 5 December 1988, the US Embassy in Helsinki had a telephone warning that "within the next two weeks" an attempt would be made to place a bomb aboard a Pan Am flight from Frankfurt to New York. On 18 december 1988 the German BKA was tipped off about a bomb plot against Pan Am 103 in the next two or three days.

Pan Am Flight 103 hit Lockerbie on 21 December 1988.

On that flight "were at least 2 US Intelligence agents and a Mr Khalid Nazir Jafaar."

The Dumfries and Galloway police began to investigate.

But for two days it was "difficult" for them to collect evidence as "CIA agents combed the countryside for the luggage of the dead American intelligence agents and a suitcase full of heroin.... 59 bodies were left lying around Lockerbie until 24 December... but by then there were only 58 bodies..." according to former DIA agent Lester Coleman

The Lockerbie judges considered the evidence of Maltese shopkeeper Tony Gauci, who provided the only visual identification of al-Megrahi as having been the person who allegedly bought clothes that were found, or planted , at the crash site, and were thought to be in the same suitcase as the bomb.

Gauci’s evidence was upheld despite numerous discrepancies over the date, time, weather, which football matches were on the television and even whether or not Christmas decorations were up.

Gauci had previously identified a member of a Palestinian group, Abu Talb, as being the person who 'bought the clothes'. Abu Talb does not look like al-Megrahi.

The Lockerbie Bomb trial suggested that something is going badly wrong in Scotland.

The Sunday Herald 08/04/2001 : "THE United Nations has savaged the Crown Office's handling of the Lockerbie trial claiming the outcome was rigged through the unfair suppression of evidence; it was politically influenced by the USA; and the court had no grounds to return a guilty verdict. Dr Hans Kochler, who was handpicked by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to act as the international observer during the trial in Holland, hinted that the trial was rigged, claimed the guilty verdict handed down in February to Abdelbasset Ali Mohamed Al Megrahi was 'arbitrary' and 'irrational' and gave his tacit support for an acquittal at the planned appeal."

23 May, 2000: It was revealed by sections of the Scottish press that the deputy director of the Lockerbie trial briefing unit at Glasgow University, Professor Andrew Fulton, was an MI6 intelligence officer.

The unit was supposed to provide "impartial and objective" legal information about the trial and was much used by the TV news programmes.

24/05/00 THE SCOTSMAN: "Prof Fulton has been 'on holiday' since it was revealed that during his 30 year diplomatic career he was a key memberof the MI6 secret service in Europe, Asia and America."

~~~

Speaking after the Lockerbie Bomb trial, Dr Jim Swires, whose daughter, Flora, was killed in the explosion said, “We think there has been miscarriage of justice."

Professor Robert Black, the lawyer who has worked closely with the relatives for many years and the architect of the trial process itself, also described the trial as a miscarriage of justice.

He told the Scotsman, “We have not seen the end of this case... There is a hell of lot of more evidence that appeared neither at the trial or the appeal.”

I regularly visited a hotel in Annan, a few miles from Lockerbie when in the area on business. Two Yanqis with well cut hair and an air of quiet grooming were staying 3/4 days after the crash.

During a conversation about the plane crash I advanced the view that it ws a Shin Beth, Mossad set up to cover the events in Palestine at the time.

These gents, allegedly on holiday, just looking around, showed considerable interest in me. I had of course no knowledge whatsoever but it certainly flushed them out.

By good fortune and being a regular guest the hotelier was not only unable to help these gents with their enquiries about me, but was handsome enough to tell me they had been enquiring.

I don't know who was responsible...but I don't think we ever will.
