The Lockerbie Disaster; Abdelbaset al-Megrahi; (Documentary aftermath 5); The Independent says in an editorial headed "Evidence at last that Lockerbie was not a Libyan bomb," that the Al Jazeera documentary "Lockerbie: What really happened?" makes clear that "Megrahi is innocent" is no longer a conspiracy theory.

EDITORIAL:"Evidence at last that Lockerbie was not a Libyan bomb," published by the Independent on March 11,  2014.

GIST: "The official version of the chemical make-up of the timer fragment has been entirely discredited, as have claims that the bomb could have been put on board in Malta. With news that a former Iranian intelligence officer, Abolghassem Mesbahi, has claimed – indeed, confirmed – that the bombing was ordered by Ayatollah Khomeini “to copy exactly what happened to the Iranian airbus”, and that it was planted in London, the idea that anybody in authority still believes the Libyans were guilty becomes harder to swallow. The fact that their leader, Muammar Gaddafi, desperate to lift international sanctions, seemingly accepted responsibility, or that Mr Megrahi’s appeal was unsuccessful, should not let those responsible off the hook. It is hard to look back on the unseemly wrangling over Mr Megrahi’s compassionate return from Scotland to Tripoli in 2009 without thinking that some of those quietly lobbying for it knew that he was less guilty than they were willing to admit publicly, and that the least they could do was let him die at home. Maybe they will find a bit more courage now. “Megrahi is innocent” is no longer a conspiracy theory – it is official."
