Full article: Pan Am Flight 103

Pan Am Flight 103 was destroyed by a bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland. This was little understood at the time, but may have been a covert assassination of UN Assistant Secretary-General, Bernt Carlsson, who was on his way to attend a ceremony at United Nations headquarters in New York to grant independence to Namibia.

One of these was the source for a July article by Joseph McBride in The Nation, entitled The Man Who Wasn't There, 'George Bush,' C.I.A. Operative[1] This report was picked up the 11 July 1988 issue of the New York Times, which headlined their story "'63 F.B.I. Memo Ties Bush to Intelligence Agency".[2]



Operation PaperclipA transfer of top German scientists to USA.
Cold WarThe official narrative had 2 diametrically opposed systems locked in combat with one another since soon after WW2. Each of the "superpowers" and its team of allies needed to outdo each other by creating ever more and deadlier weapons, creating a kind of perpetual war for perpetual peace, with the warring parties engaging mainly in covert/proxy wars. Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.
The TroublesThe sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland which flared into serious sustained violence through the summer of 1969
Operation CondorUS-backed campaign of assassination and terrorisation carried out in South America.
InslawThe Inslaw affair was a complex financial/political fraud the full dimensions of which were never uncovered, but some of which were forced onto the official record.
Project STARGATEProject STARGATE aimed to gain domination over entire nations by making them cede their autonomy and privacy to the controlling person or group.

Arms-to-IraqA series of arms deals by UK companies during the Iran-Iraq War, when there was a UK government-endorsed UN embargo on such sales.

Contaminated blood affairFor several years in the 1980s France knowingly exported tainted blood, killing thousands.
Al-Yamamah arms dealA complex series of multi billion dollar arms for oil deals set up under the government of Margaret Thatcher, involving a bunch of deep state arms dealers, and her son - who earned £12 million. Fines levied have been in the hundreds of millions, while kickbacks amount to billions.

Pan Am Flight 103When Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland on 21 December 1988, killing all 259 passengers and crew on board, news reports cited UN Assistant Secretary-General, Bernt Carlsson, as its highest-profile victim. US and British intelligence operatives, posing as Lockerbie investigators, ignored the evident targeting of the UN diplomat and instead focused on the jumbo jet. With the result that the wrong country was blamed and an innocent person convicted of the Lockerbie bombing.
Pan Am Flight 103/Cover-upJust a few weeks after the December 1988 newspaper reports, Bernt Carlsson's name was more or less erased from the corporate media reporting of the Lockerbie event.
