Lockerbie Bombing Again

For some reason the serious problems with the Lockerbie case is little known in this country. I've never been sure why.

In Scotland, with a large part of one of their towns destroyed and many of their own citizens dead, there has been a lot of concern about bringing out the truth and not just a laundered, politically-convenient version as was tragically presented at the trial.

For anyone who wants to understand more about the indignation of the Scottish people over the handling of Lockerbie, I suggest reading this:

And in a day or two, I'll be back to taking about writing--Promise.

Edit; This didn't work as a link but does when copied and pasted. Sorry. I'm not sure why.

That's strange. When I copy and paste the link it works, but it doesn't as a click through.

it worked when I copied and pasted it.

one of my cousins in the military back then had sent a Christmas card to my folks; the card was on that plan. we know this because when it did arrive, some 2-3 years latter, it was packaged in clear plastic with a letter of explanation as to why it had been opened and the fact that is had been on the plane.

greed is a horrible thing that shall never find an end

thanks for the link
