Theodora Cohen’s mother , Susan Cohen and Suse Lowenstein, mother of Alexander Lowenstein remain convinced that their children’s deaths are the responsibility of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi who was convicted by a Scottish court for the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. However, although Susan might find it strange that “al-Megrahi, who is “supposed to be a dying man,” could help write his deathbed memoirs “in his current condition“, and although Suse is in no doubt that he “is guilty and acted on Gadhafi’s behalf,” the evidence would appear to suggest otherwise. Moreover, with Sheffield University’s Dr Jess Cawley casting doubt on the hypothesis that links the bomb to Libya, we might do well to start looking elsewhere in order to discover who was behind what was the biggest terrorist attack prior to 9/11.
A good starting point might be us asking two of the three questions that have to be asked. Firstly, why did the CIA apparently pay key witness, Tony Gauci, up to $2 million dollars for evidence which the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission views as “unreliable“? Indeed, so “unreliable” that we can only come to the conclusion that there was a very serous miscarriage of justice and one very diferent from the “miscarriage of justice” that Hillary Clinton is referring to when she demands that Megrahi be “returned to prison, preferably in Scotland”. Secondly, why do we have these demands for Megrahi to be returned to prison when the authorities in both Britain and United States have never shown the slightest inclination to listen to his appeal?
Finally, if al-Megrahi is innocent and if Dr Jess Cawley’s conclusions regarding the forensic evidence are correct, who was then responsible for 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103? In answering the first two questions, an answer to that, very important, third question might be facilitated and it is that final question which should really make us think. If they are capable of bribing witnesses and of blocking justice, we might indeed suspect that they are capable of anything.
