Blaming Iran for Lockerbie? June 28, 2007

Posted by Some Muslim in Iran, News Commentry.

The BBC reports that the Lockerbie case has been reopened.

Was Libya implicated out of political expediency, when all along the main suspect was Iran?

The initial suspicion was that Iran had exacted revenge for the shooting-down of an Iranian civil airliner over the Gulf a few months before.

A US warship had mistakenly believed it was under attack from the plane, when in fact it contained pilgrims on their way to Mecca.

Iran offered a $10m reward to anyone who avenged the attack.

Another case of the media trying to sway the public into supporting the government when they choose to attack Iran? Who knows.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever know who was behind the Lockerbie bombing.
