Terrorist Mousa Kousa Was Involved In The Release Of Lockerbie Bomber

September 6, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – A new story from the Sunday Telegraph has given evidence that the release of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie Bomber, was orchestrated by Mousa Kousa, the man believed to be one of the masterminds behind the terrorist attack.

I won’t go into the full past of Kousa here, as quite a bit of it is based on conjecture. While a great deal of evidence has shown that he is a terrorist, he was never charged for a role in the Lockerbie Bombings, which killed several hundred Americans and Britons.

However, his past is extremely shady. Not only is he suspected to have been at the meetings where the Lockerbie and other attacks were discussed and planned, but he has been known to fund and support the IRA.

Kousa has also been expelled from Britain in the past after giving an interview outside of the Libyan Embassy where he explained that two Libyan ex-patriots who were residing in the UK would be killed for fighting against the revolution.

To say the least, he has been a suspicious and central figure, especially given his close relationship with Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. He has been his long time confidant and friend, as well as adviser.

According to The Telegraph, new transcripts released from the government show that Kousa was present, and a key figure, during the talks to release al-Megrahi.

They show him as having put pressure on those present to release the man, as well as having made threats about tension with the Muslim and Arab population, especially those in Libya. He reportedly threatened trade between the nations, as well.

The findings are sure to put more strain in an already controversial decision that has caused outrage in many circles, especially in those of the relatives of the people killed in the 1988 bombing.

    James – They were protecting their own interest. It wasn’t a good decision, though, and the consequences will be political as well as ethical.
