Khomeini strikes again?

The Lockerbie bombing was ordered by Iran and carried out by a Syrian-based terrorist group, a former Iranian intelligence officer has admitted.

Abolghassem Mesbahi, a defector to Germany, said Pan Am flight 103 was downed in 1988 in retaliation for a US Navy strike on an Iranian commercial jet six months earlier, in which 290 people died.

He claims the Ayatollah Khomeini, who was Iran’s Supreme Leader, ordered the bombing “to copy exactly what happened to the Iranian Airbus”.

Previously unseen evidence gathered for the aborted appeal hearing of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the former Libyan
intelligence officer convicted of the bombing, supports Mr Mesbahi’s claim and suggests that the bombers belonged to the extremist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC).

Documents obtained by Al Jazeera television for a documentary called Lockerbie: What Really Happened? name key individuals said to be involved in the bombing, including the alleged bomb-maker, the alleged mastermind and the man who may have put the bomb on the doomed Boeing 747.

This is all supposed to have been covered up by the United States and Great Britain because they didn’t want to agitate Syria at the time. There is support for the Iranian theory by some families of the victims, which lends some credibility to all of this. At the very least, they deserve to know exactly what happened, especially after almost twenty six years.

Y, in fact I recall immediately after Lockerbie, the speculation was an act of revenge by Iran. I remember there were rumors that the timing of the explosion was intentional to mimic the destruction of the Iranian Airbus. I was a bit surprised when Libya was later blamed.

BTW, the commander of the Navy ship that destroyed the Iranian plane said it was an accident. The commander believed the Iranian plane was a military plane launching an attack on his ship.

What's the difference (they're all 1st cousins) and who gives a fig? You want to argue over how many sand Negroes there are on the head of a pin? Where the Semtex came from and who bought it? Where was the bomb maker trained?

Note also the timing of the change of focus from Iran to Libya: as i remember, it happened when Saddam invaded Kuwait and it suddenly became useful to keep good relations with Iran.
I also seem to remember that this was pointed out in the British press at the time, but i don't remember which papers.

Yeah, I've never believed it wasn't an Iranian-ordered hit for what the USS Vincennes did.
