Washington AC/DC - (Holy Shit!): The dossier on one of the Pope's bastard sons was 'sanitised' during the Reagan/Bush1 presidency amid fears 'it was just too goddam explosive' for humble joe public.
And now the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the Pope's foreign relatives is demanding sight of former CIA director William J Casey's personal files amid relentless US disgust at the release of the Lockerbie bomber.
Al-Megrahi's name is believed to have been on the CIA's not-official-cover or NOC-List of covert operatives who also freelanced for the Libyans, the KGB, MI6 and the First Vatican Bank of Tel Aviv.
Casey was campaign manager for Ronald Reagan's successful 1980 White House bid.
He was rewarded for his triumphant whitewash of Reagan's criminal files with the top CIA posting which he held for six years.
His masterpiece oevre was rebranding Reagan into a highly electable politician via a 'cute old grandpappy' image that destroyed intelligence about the old perv's rampage of Hollywood minors.
Also obliterated from Reagan's security file were DNA tests showing he was a KGB colonel brother and a brother of the identical triplets who have successfully impersonated Queen Elizabeth II since the September 1940 bombing of London to the present day.
He died of a brain tumor just as the Lockerbie bombing plot was being hatched a few days before a critical Senate Committee hearing into the Iran-Contra affair and the CIA's diversion of funds to Nicaraguan Contras.
Al-Megrahi was convicted of the Pan Am bombing on forensic and other evidence including the discovery of $3 million in a private offshore bank account previously fed by the collapsed Vatican Bank of Roberto Calvi RIP.
He is living the life of Riley at home in Tripoli follwoing a miracle cure for his terminal medical condition.
