We'll Never Know Truth About Lockerbie
Robert Fisk, The Independent
So the old scoundrel has died. Midday Tripoli time, at his home, peacefully, Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, after a long struggle with cancer, "bravely borne" no doubt. But "scoundrel", nonetheless, not because he arranged the Lockerbie bombing - many have the gravest doubts he ever did - but because he was a member of Gaddafi's intelligence services and no-one who served the Great Leader as a "mukhabarat" agent had clean hands. If he was wrongly convicted, what did he do in the service of his master? Clich time: his secret dies with him.
TAGGED: Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, Lockerbie Bombing, Scotland, UK, Libya
