Foreign Agent 4221:
The Lockerbie Cover-Up,
by William C. Chasey. Soft-cover, 372 pages with index.
Everybody aboard perished, as well as 11 people on the ground. The 1988 bombing was one of the worst terrorist incidents in the West to date.
An investigation initially pointed at Iran and Syria as the countries responsible; then, suddenly, for no explained reason, everything shifted and Libya was being blamed. Few have asked why.
Some of the earliest books and articles about the Lockerbie bombing did not even mention Libya as a suspect country. Not until November 14, 1991 - nearly three years after the bombing - did U.S. and Scottish prosecutors release a 29-page indictment charging two Libyan men, Lamen Khalifa Fhimah, 39, and Abdel Basset Ali Mohammed al-Megrahi, 55, with blasting the plane out of the sky.
