Lockerbie, Shin Bet, MI5, the CIA, Iran and Wikipedia

What links Lockerbie, Shin Bet, the CIA, MI5 and Wikipedia?

On 26 July, 2007, Ludwig Braeckeleer, at, ( Wikipedia and the Intelligence Services ) wrote:

"I had learned from a recently released U.S. National Archives file that Shin Bet, the Israeli Security Agency, had infiltrated the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) and helped the Entebbe hijackers (Israeli commandos rescued the hostages in Uganda in 1976), so I wanted to learn more about the link between the PFLP and the PFLP-GC.

"I also wanted to learn more about allegations made by David Colvin, the first secretary of the British Embassy in Paris, concerning the rather bizarre collaboration between the PFLP and the Shin Bet."

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, General Command (PFLP-GC), based in Syria, has been accused of having some link to the Lockerbie bomb (1988).

It has been alleged that Marwan Khreesat of the PFLP-GC made the bomb which brought down PanAm 103 over Lockerbie.

On 26 October 1988 Khreesat was arrested and one of his bombs seized. Then Khreesat was mysteriously released. [1009] Former CIA agent Oswald Le Winter stated, "…pressure had come from Bonn… from the U.S. Embassy in Bonn… to release Khreesat." [1010]

Reportedly, Khreesat worked for U.S. intelligence. [1011] (

Ludwig Braeckeleer writes: (Wikipedia and the Intelligence Services)

"I consulted the article on the Entebbe Operation on Wikipedia, where I knew the story had been noted. To my surprise, I found that all references to the alleged collaboration between the PFLP and the Shin Bet had been suppressed. Moreover, it is no longer possible to edit the page.

Braekeleer wonders to what extent Wikipedia and the media in general are controlled by the CIA and its friends.

Braekeler reminds us of the CIA's influence over the media back in 1953 when the CIA and its friends overthrew Iran's Prime Minister Mossadegh. Braeckeler quotes from a copy of the CIA's secret history of the coup :

Agents from the CIA and SIS (the American and British intelligence services) 'directed a campaign of bombings by Iranians posing as members of the Communist Party, and planted articles and editorial cartoons in newspapers.'

'The CIA was apparently able to use contacts at the Associated Press to put on the newswire a statement from Tehran about royal decrees that the CIA itself had written...

'The Iran desk of the State Department was able to place a CIA study in Newsweek, using the normal channel of desk officer to journalist. The article was one of several planted press reports that, when reprinted in Tehran, fed the war of nerves against Iran's prime minister, Mohammed Mossadegh'

Braekeler wonders about the extent of control over Wikipedia by the security services.

Braekeler speculates about 'Slim Virgin' an administrator at Wikipedia.

Reportedly, Slim Virgin has been revealed as Linda Mack, who worked with Pierre Salinger (senator and investigative journalist) in his Lockerbie investigation.

Reportedly, Linda Mack seemed to try to point the investigation in the direction of Qaddafi and Libya.

Reportedly, Salinger came to believe that Linda Mack worked for MI5.
