Lockerbie is About Heroin
More than one group was involved in smuggling heroin out of Lebanon and into the USA using PanAm flights.
Reportedly, these groups included:
A. The group working for Syrian Monzer al Kassar, a CIA asset with reported links to Oliver North and Mohammed Atta. (Monzer al-Kassar – Wikipedia / Madcow Morning News.)
B. Members of the PFLP-GC (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command) which had links to Monzer al Kassar, the CIA asset.
The PFLP-GC bomb-maker Marwan Khreesat was a Jordanian intelligence service (GID) agent with links to the CIA. (Pan Am Flight 103.)
C. The CIA unit known as Corea, which worked with Monzer al Kassar. (Franklin, Dutroux, Mossad, McKee)
According to Lester Coleman, formerly an agent of the US government:
“Members of the Jafaar clan and other DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) couriers would arrive at Larnaca (Cyprus) with suitcases full of high- grade heroin, white and crystal, and be met off the boat from the Christian-controlled port of Jounieh (Lebanon) by officers of the Cypriot Police Narcotics Squad, who then drove them up to the Eurame office in Nicosia…
“After that, the Cypriot police would take them out to the airport and put them on flights to Frankfurt, where the bag-switch routine used by ‘legitimate’ smugglers was employed to bypass the airport’s security arrangements and load the ‘dirty’ suitcases on to trans-Atlantic flights.” (Trail of the Octopus.)
Immediately after the Lockerbie Bombing, a quantity of heroin was found on Lockerbie golf course and a suitcase full of heroin was discovered by a farmer a couple of miles to the east. (The Lockerbie trial: a top-level cover-up? The Guardian)
Major Charles McKee, of the Defence Intelligence Agency in Beirut, uncovered Al-Kassar’s CIA connection.
McKee and his team gathered evidence of the CIA drug smuggling.
A key member of the team was Matthew Gannon, 34, the CIA’s deputy station chief in Beirut.
McKee and Gannon expressed their anger about al-Kassar to the CIA HQ in Langley in the USA, but they got no response.
Gannon’s father-in-law Thomas Twetten was then chief of Middle East operations based in Langley.
He was also Oliver North’s CIA contact.
McKee, Gannon and three other members of the team decided to fly back to CIA HQ and expose the COREA unit’s deal with al- Kassar.
They booked seats on Pan Am 103.
In his book, Lockerbie: The Tragedy of Flight 103, Scottish radio reporter David Johnston described how CIA agents helicoptered into Lockerbie shortly after the crash.
They were looking for McKee’s suitcase.
