Respondent Virginia McCullough is fully-conversant with the details the PAN AM Fl. 103 crash, and knowledgeable about CIA drug smuggling operations which were a major factor in the tragedy.
Former DIA agent Lester Coleman, unsurprisingly, was recently incarcerated on bogus charges as a way to shut him up, after he blew the whistle on massive CIA drug smuggling activity directly responsible for certain airport security anomalies/breeches, which enabled explosives to be smuggled aboard Fl. 103. The plane blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988.
Coleman's crucial statements on the CIA drug smuggling have now been corroborated by a PAN AM baggage handler based in Frankfurt, Germany named Roland O'Neill.
Palestinian terrorists based in Germany penetrated the CIA drug operations, and switched a bag containing drugs to be smuggled with one containing Semtex explosives. the rest is history--a history of 270 innocent human beings blow to shreds in an incident of horrendous brutality--all made possible by the filthy international drug dealing of OUR Central Intelligence Agency!

Rubbish!! The CIA has it's own planes that bypass all security ... It makes no sense whatsover to take a chance on using commercial aircraft to smuggle. It is just stupid propoganda.

Don't be stupid. Why would the CIA risk using commercial baggage, where it is exposed to thieves, on both sides of the law, when it is totally unnecessary? It would be like a diplomat smuggling heroin in his luggage, rather than his diplomatic pouch. His luggage can be searched. The diplomat would have to be a complete moron.
The same for this story about the CIA using commercial baggage for contraband. DUH!

Monzer Al-Kassar, a Syrian arms and drug dealer and a known supporter of terrorists. During the Iran-Contra scandal, he received $1.5 million dollars from a Swiss company controlled by Albert Hakim and retired Air Force General Richard Secord, accoring to a ledger kept by Hakim. For that money, Al-Kassar provided more than 100 tons of small arms intended for the Contras. The shipment could not be delivered, however, and the CIA bought the arms for $1.2 million.
According to the Interfor report, Al-Kassar was also the go-between in a successful May 1988 French effort to trade arms for hostages, held in the Middle East. When a CIA team based in West Germany sought to duplicate the French feat, it, too, turned to Al-Kassar. In return for his cooperation, the report says, the CIA protected his drug-smuggling operation from Frankfurt into the UnitedStates. "It is believed that U.S. Customs at JFK International Airport in New York were ordered by CIA to allow certain baggage to pass uninspected, due to �national security interests," the report states. Abu Nidal, the Middle Eastern terrorist with perhaps the best name recognition in the United States, Nidal is credited with many attacks on U.S. interests, including the Achille Lauro hijacking. Originally mentioned as a prime suspect in the bombing of Flight 103, he shows up only briefly in the Interfor report -- as partner in Al-Kassar's smuggling operation and not as the planner of the PAN AM attack.
Khalid Jafar, a Lebanese-American from suburban Detroit who reportedly worked as a drug courier for Al-Kassar and was involved in bringing the suitcase containing a sophisticated bomb onto the plane. The report states, "Jafar does not profile a suicidal martyr type" -- in other words, he may not have known the suitcase he was shepherding December 12th contained plastic explosives instead of the usual drugs.
Ahmed Jibril, leader of the radical Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, a competitor of Nidal and the man who masterminded and orchestrated the bombing of Flight 103. According to recent PBS and ABC news reports, the PFLP-GC has close ties to Syrian intelligence and traditionally has been financed by Libya. When Libyan leader Muammar Khadafi withdrew his support, Jibril shopped around for other sponsors. After the USS Vincennes shot down an Iranian air bus, he found his sponsor, Iran, according to news reports, offered the PFLP-GC $10 million for downing a U.S. airplane.
CIA-1, the West German team handling Al-Kassar and protecting his smuggling routes in return for help freeing U.S. hostages. The report suggests CIA-1 was a renegade unit and not part of the regular agency, since it "has a control at an unknown area in the Washington, DC area," rather than CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. It goes on to say, "It appears that it eventually operated to some or a large extent as an internal covert operation without consistent oversight, a la Oliver North."
Army Major Charles McKee, who was on loan to the CIA and headed the eight-member CIA team in Beirut charged with trying to secure the release of hostages. According to a November 12th article in the Sunday Star (Toronto), McKee's team became outraged when it discovered another branch of the CIA was protecting Al-Kassar's drug pipeline.
McKee and his team reported back to CIA headquarters with the findings of their investigations, including facts about the smuggling operation and information that they had film of the hostages' location. CIA headquarters did not respond.
The Interfor report says "their plan was to bring the evidence back to the United States to inform the government, and to publicize their findings if the government covered it up." They reportedly violated CIA rules by returning without permission, making travel plans that included a connection with Flight 103 during a London stopover.

Lockerbie links to Franklin, Dutroux, Mossad, McKee
The Lockerbie bomb has links to:
3. The Dutroux and Franklin child abuse scandals
4. Major Charles McKee.
According to a BBC report (BBC News Lockerbie: Conspiracy theories):
A Pan Am investigation is believed to have concluded that the Lockerbie bomb was targeted specifically to kill a small band of US Defence Intelligence Agency operatives (including Major Charles McKee) who had uncovered a drugs ring run by a CIA unit in Lebanon.
The drugs-ring is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad agents.
Reportedly, the drugs ring involved 'CIA-asset' Monzer al-Kassar, a Syrian with links to the brother of Syria's President Assad.
Reportedly Monzer al-Kassar was involved with Lt-Colonel Oliver North, of Iran-Contra fame.
According to the site ISGP.:
"The CIA and its allies allowed the Contras to ship huge amounts of cocaine into the United States and sell it to mafia families in New York, Los Angeles, Texas, Miami, and a number of other places.
"The proceeds of these sales allowed the Contras to buy (third-rate) arms and other supplies from the United States...
"The Israelis played a major role in the whole Iran-Contra affair.
"They were used as an intermediary to sell the arms to Iran.
"They also supported the United States in training the Contras, and apparently also in shipping the drugs and assassinating those who tried to expose these schemes..."
Paul Vanden Boeynants (left) Child abuse, fascist networks and Bilderberg.
Certain people called Boas, Mathot, Vanden Boeynants and Beaurir reportedly had their names linked to the Dutroux child abuse scandal in Belgium, and to Iran-Contra.
According to a book on the Franklin Affair, "A former security guard for (Larry) King has sworn that he saw (Oliver) North attend at least one of King's parties, a party at which children were also present."
"Incredibly, not only have the Belgians that were involved in Iran Contra been accused of child abuse (Boas, Mathot, Vanden Boeynants and Beaurir), but North and his employer, vice president and later president George Bush, were uncomfortably close to the Franklin child abuse affair in the United States.
"Both were mentioned by witnesses as having attended the parties of alleged child abuser, Satanist, Contra supporter, money launderer and drug dealer Lawrence E.'Larry' King."
TIME magazine, 27 April 1992, tells us more about Major Charles McKee (Pan Am 103 Why Did They Die?- TIME)
According to Time Magazine, Charles McKee's mother suspects that it was a government action that indirectly led to her only son's death.
Beulah McKee is quoted as saying: "For three years, I've had a feeling that if Chuck hadn't been on that plane, it wouldn't have been bombed... I've never been satisfied at all by what the people in Washington told me."
In Beirut, McKee was a military attache assigned to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

There is one more theory, more convoluted and startling than these, that brings Israel, the CIA and US Military intelligence, or the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), into the frame.
An internal investigation by Pan Am is believed to have found that the bomb planted on Flight 103 was put on the plane during a stop-over in Frankfurt, and not in Malta by the Libyan suspects, as alleged by the prosecution in the trial.
The Pan Am report is believed to have concluded that the bomb was not aimed at the killing of Americans in general, but was targeted specifically to kill a small band of DIA operatives that had uncovered a drugs ring run by a "rogue" CIA unit in Lebanon.
The CIA unit is alleged to have been selling drugs to raise funds to buy the freedom of six US hostages held by Hezbollah in Lebanon at the time.
The drugs-ring and the connection to Hezbollah is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad agents.

Do Not kid yourselves the banks are not going to lose a dime. If you think Obama hates Wall Street think again. The Wall street boys through a bundle of money behind him. These foreclosures being delayed is the being of the ground work for government money. If they foreclose on homeowners now, it is not likely they will get their money back in this slow housing market. Just watch, the banks have a plan. Remember they are always going to get their money. Thanks to Barney Franks and Charles Schumer they have Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to cover them. If you believe for one minute those institutions were created to help the poor think again!
Tell me if I am wrong here goes: The bank makes a loan to a poor man who cannot afford a home yet. Freddie and Fannie guaranteed that loan. The man goes under and loses his home, then Freddie and Fannie with tax payers money pays the bank.So who befitted and who paid? Now the poor man is worst off than when he started.
Here it is election time and Barney Frank is keeping his head down. I am angry that Frank, Schumer and Dodd insist on lying about their part in the Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac disaster. Dodd had enough sense to get out but Schumer and Frank have no shame. I refuse to call them democrats!
They are part of a group who insist on forcing policy we do not want down our throats. If the people are against a law or bill, Frank and Schumer resort to some slick trick to get their way. Then they will stand up in front of the T.V.cameras and lie through their teeth.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are Barney Franks and Charles Schumer's screw up. You little people should just be quite they know whats best for you.
