Lockerbie - (Ass Mess): Former Saudi ambassador to Washington Prince Bandar framed Libyan intelligence operative Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi for the bombing of the pan Am jet that blew up over Lockerbie in scotland in 1986.
And according to latest reports from Scotland Bandar then paid off police investigators into misleading the original CIA enquiry into the bombing.
His original assassination target was a senior NATO military intelligence official who was booked on the flight with damning evidence for the UN Security Council that would have seen the Saudi royal family charged with international war crimes.
But the official was taken ill at the last moment before boarding in a sickening attempt to poison him at the hospitality suite for Pan Am first class passengers.
Now fast forward to the morning of 9/11 some fifteen years later:
UK press reports that the CIA suppressed investigations of a break-in at a Heathrow Airport luggage depot on the morning of the Lockerbie flight were broadcast on BBC TV news half an hour before the Twin Towers horror struck and changed the reporting agenda.
The news item said that the real PAn Am bomb that blew up over Lockerbie was planted at London and not on some feeder flight from Frankfurt that Megrahi was charged with.
No subsequent news items were ever repeated about the incident.
Until this weekend when the police investigation into the Saudi arms for Blair peerages probe found a trail of terror and intrigue pointing to Bandar ever since the early days of the Thatcher administration.
"Given that Thatcher is Cherie Blair's mother and the ex-wife of KGB/Mossad turncoat Robert Maxwell RIP, this is hardly surprising," a senior cop told the press today.
"We're eagerly looking forward to stitching up Blair on his exit day from office this Wednesday.!"
