FTR #51 The Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103

Lis­ten now: Side 1 | Side 2

These seg­ments exam­ine alle­ga­tions of the com­plic­i­ty of ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence in the bomb­ing of Pan Am flight 103 in Decem­ber of 1988. Although Libya has been fin­gered as the cul­prit for this ter­ror­ist act, there are numer­ous indi­ca­tions that some ele­ments of Amer­i­can, British and West Ger­man intel­li­gence may have aid­ed and abet­ted the actu­al bomb­ing and/or cov­ered up aspects of the sub­se­quent inves­ti­ga­tion.
Among the points cov­ered in this pro­gram:

Alle­ga­tions that the bombers “pig­gy-backed” the bomb onto a DEA sting oper­a­tion;

Ger­man refusal to detain a mem­ber of the ter­ror­ist cell impli­cat­ed in the bomb­ing (who was being sought by British inves­ti­ga­tors for inter­ro­ga­tion);

Amer­i­can intel­li­gence agents’ intense inter­est in doc­u­ments car­ried by a group of U.S. mil­i­tary intel­li­gence oper­a­tives who died in the bomb­ing;

Appar­ent attempts to sup­press a doc­u­men­tary film that dis­cuss­es pos­si­ble West­ern com­plic­i­ty in the bomb­ing.

(Record­ed in the fall of 1995.)
