What You Don’t Know About Lockerbie & the Megrahi Release; Dearbornistan Muslim Passenger Bombed Pan Am 103

By Debbie Schlussel

You’ve probably read or heard on TV News about the outrageous release of Abdel Basset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi–convicted in the 1988 Islamic terrorist bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland–to a hero’s welcome in Libya.  I don’t blame most of the families for being upset.

panam103Al-Megrahi Wasn’t Alone; Dearbornistan Muslim Passenger Helped

But you probably don’t know the whole story about Pan-Am Flight 103’s bombing, including the Dearbornistan connection.  In fact, as I’ve noted previously on this site, the bombing operation was not originally a Libyan one.  More on that later.

It’s not really being reported much, but the flight was chosen not just because it had Americans on board, but many Jewish Americans.  As I noted last year:

The plane was chosen because terrorists knew many Americans would be on board, a good number of them American Jews, with surnames like Cohen and Bernstein. A group of 35 students from Syracuse University were on the flight. Some federal officials apparently knew about the likelihood the plane would be attacked, as they canceled their own reservations on that flight. Yet, not a word of it was breathed to innocent civilians who were sacrificed in jihad and in the U.S. government’s silence about it.

Though not reported in any of the coverage of the Megrahi release, the bombing of Pan Am 103 was planned and begun by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.  And a Dearborn Shi’ite Muslim drug dealer who was on the plane was thought to have been involved in the bombing, using explosives in his Walkman. So, I can understand why some believe that al-Megrahi was wrongly convicted.  I don’t share that belief (because strong evidence ties him to the bombing), but I know that only one person got the blame for something a deceased guy in Dearborn was involved in.

All of that was swept under the rug, as al-Megrahi took all the blame.  But, for weeks, the Detroit media in 1988 was covering the steps and travels of Khalid Nazir Jaafar, a Dearborn-based passenger on the flight, and then went out of its way to whitewash his involvement.  From my previous work on this:

The attack has a Michigan connection, which betrays the claim that Muslim-Americans haven’t attacked Americans in terrorist attacks. A Muslim drug dealer, Khalid Nazir Jaafar, of Dearbornistan, at the last minute, changed his flight to get on Pan Am 103. It’s believed a bomb inside his Walkman in his gym bag blew up the plane. Jaafar was a Shi’ite whose family came from Hezbollah-stronghold Ba’albek in the Bekaa Valley. That story, however, was covered up and swept under the rug in succeeding years and the trial of Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence officer also in on the plan.

Also significant is that the last minute booking and ticket change for Jaafar was done by a travel agency owned by Mahmoud “Mike” Younis, whose wife, Dr. Jouhaineh Maleh, is at the center of a Muslim illegal alien Medicaid fraud and birthright citizenship scam in Dearborn. Mr. Younis was, not long ago, convicted of defrauding the Department of Education’s job training program, using the same travel agency and a computer school. Mr. Younis and his businesses have been on the radar of federal counterterrorism agents for years.

But like I said, you aren’t hearing any of this in the media coverage of this story. Yes, Al-Megrahi has blood on his hands.

But he didn’t work alone. Not even close. And not just with the Libyans.

By the way, don’t forget that you can blame Al-Megrahi’s release partly on the Bush Administration, which was quick and eager to normalize relations with Libya.

Would Megrahi have gotten a humanitarian release if Bush hadn’t negotiated a quick pay-off of millions to the families of the Pan Am 103 victims?

Also outrageous is that the Dearbornistan family of Jaafar apparently was among those collecting millions in the Libyan settlement. A recent Detroit mainstream media story reported that Michigan’s U.S. Senator Carl Levin was trying to negotiate away from legislation and agreements that said only U.S. citizens could collect the millions from Libya.

I believe he was intervening for drug dealer Jaafar’s Muslim parents and family. They live in Michigan, so they are his constituents. The other Michigan families of the victims are U.S. citizens.

And, oddly, Levin wouldn’t say for whom he was intervening.  Wonder why?

This whole story is a shining example of how our world is in a terrible tailspin. They wonder why the only booming industries in this country are connected to firearms, and bullets.

Joe on August 21, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Great info here, some I knew, some I sure didn’t.

Thanks for the eye-opener about what I didn’t know.

Diamond Girl on August 21, 2009 at 1:16 pm

I have always thought this attack was an Iranian operation. I believed it was revenge for the Stark shootdown during Iran-Iraq War. This information makes me believe it was a joint Hezbollah and Libyan Op.

Fleiter on August 21, 2009 at 1:47 pm

I always thought the Pan Am 103 bombing was a Syrian hit job; not a Libyan one. I remember that initial reports indicated this but quietly disappeared.

I believe that President Bush (41) was effectively blackmailed by Syrian Intelligence (BCCI Scandal). As a result, the real perpetrators (Syrian) got off the hook and the Libyans were allowed to “take a hit for the team”.

There is NO Santa Claus on August 21, 2009 at 2:14 pm

Dear Debbie:
Your post mentions that “Some federal officials, such as then-FBI counterterrorism chief Oliver “Buck” Revell, apparently knew about the likelihood the plane would be attacked, as they canceled their own reservations on that flight. Yet, not a word of it was breathed to innocent civilians who were sacrificed in jihad and in the U.S. government’s silence about it.” If this is true, and I don’t doubt it for a minute, is there anyway that these government officials can be prosecuted? I can’t even begin to understand how they could keep silent on this.

OIJ: That’s been reported many times. But no-one ever went after anyone. They didn’t know for sure that it would be bombed. But they got intelligence that it would be. Since no-one has ever sued over this, it’s hard to tell/know. DS

One Irish Jew on August 21, 2009 at 2:37 pm

    What did Revell know? How did he find out? I have heard about this cancellation but never any further information.

    “Some federal officials, such as then-FBI counterterrorism chief Oliver “Buck” Revell, apparently knew about the likelihood the plane would be attacked, as they canceled their own reservations on that flight. Yet, not a word of it was breathed to innocent civilians who were sacrificed in jihad and in the U.S. government’s silence about it.”

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    Debbie’s accusation that I knew about the potential bombing of PanAm 103 is a bald face lie. Neither I nor any other senior official at FBIHQ had any prior knowledge of this terrible crime. My son who was in the Army in Germany was home on leave two weeks before the bombing and I was never in London to take him off of the flight as others have alleged. I worked virtually around the clock with hundreds of my FBI colleagues to solve this vicious attack and we did solve the case. We also thought that Iran was the most likely suspect but key evidence lead us to Libya. The release if the convicted bomber by the Scottish government was a terrible mistake which the U.S. Government opposed; as did I but as I am retired from government I could only express my dsisgust with this action through public comment.
    I would certainly like to meet the vicious liars who spread these accusations in court where they could be held liable for perjury and false statements.

There’s definitely more politics involved in this Lockerbie tragedy. There’s evidence to show that Megrahi was wrongly convicted because and his trial was unfair. But at the same time, these poor families. I don’t think anyone can make an absolute judgement on his innocence or guilt because whole countries are on the fence. So maybe to have a little compassion on this dying man, who may or may not be guilty, is the tip of the iceberg.
More opinions here:

Jessi on August 21, 2009 at 2:39 pm

    Compassion in the form of Hellfire missile or better yet a Marine Scout Sniper Team for a personal touch.

    As our president says “everyone has to sacrifice.” Ramadan is a fitting time for that sacrice don’t you think ?

    Roger on August 24, 2009 at 6:53 am

    …”There’s evidence to show that Megrahi was wrongly convicted because and his trial was unfair.”

    Would you care to explain this further? Enlight us. How was he wrongful convicted and unfairly tried?

    Back up your conclusions. It looks to me that this was an elaborate scheme and many MORE should have been tried, convicted of mass murder, and well HUNG.

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 3:03 pm


      You are a fraud and a muzzie or muzzie sympathizer. You have failed to substantiate your “claim” that this mass murderer was wrongly convicted.

      Explanation? He was accorded all opportunities to present a defense AND HE HAD NONE. ROT IN HELL WITH HIM.

      goldenmike4393 on August 25, 2009 at 11:36 am

To me, the real story is the hero’s welcome. Aren’t we supposed to believe the “vast majority” of Muslims are peaceful and don’t approve of terrorism in their name? Why then is there joy in Libya over the release of one who is sullying their “peaceful” religion?

stevecanuck on August 21, 2009 at 3:28 pm

    Good point, Stevecanuck. I agree!

    There is NO Santa Claus on August 21, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    It appears that MASS MURDER really brings muzzies to life…

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 3:04 pm

In my dream world…A F-22 would have been dispatched from an airbase not on European soil, unbeknownst to the UN and the world at large, and a missle put through that plane taking him back to Lybia somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. We could just shrug and say “Prove it was us”. That would be justice served.

Tony P. on August 21, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    Tony P.

    Great idea. However, I think I would have waited until the plane landed and he got off the plane. During his heroes welcome, a few daisey-cutters would have been “accidentally” dropped on this terrorist mob, hopefully with Gaddafi in attendance.

    Jarhead on August 22, 2009 at 12:55 pm

debbie, you cannot do anything about this. nor can anyone else you can think of.

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 21, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    Abdel, I don’t know if you think that is a statement of fact or simply a taunt. The awful truth is, and your culture knows it all too well, that in the face of helplessness and desperation, people commit henious acts against our fellow man. When you look at world history, every culture, every people has a boiling point and I think that Americans are very close to reaching theirs, both with our politicians and our Muslim “guests”. They have both worn out their welcome. Don’t presume there is nothing that can be done, just pray to your god that it won’t be done to you.

    Lisa on August 21, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    Are you gloating over this?

    Sorrow01 on August 22, 2009 at 5:06 am

    “debbie, you cannot do anything about this. nor can anyone else you can think of.

    Abdel-Basset-tista on August 21, 2009 at 8:09 pm”

    God can, and will. May he live long, and suffer much pain in his cancer. I hope he lies in his own waste, develops sores, and lingers.

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 3:07 pm

Fleiter– Good memory! The incident you’re referring to was the USS Vincennes’ shootdown of an Iranian airliner during a tense period when Iran was deliberately threatening Persian Gulf sea traffic by flying fighter aircraft to feign attacks against oil tankers transiting to Iraq and other Gulf seaports.
(A month or so later the wife of the Vincennes’ captain was seriously injured in San Diego by a bomb placed in her car by “unknown” individuals. I seem to remember that the “Feeble But Incompetents” announced eventually that “we think maybe the gardener did it” and never arrested anybody.)

Sylvester Cat on August 22, 2009 at 3:51 am

lisa, what exactly can you do, and what exactly will you do?? if you answer with some vague non-specifics, this equals nothing.

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 22, 2009 at 5:12 am

Abdel-Basset-tista – there are quite a few things that we can do. When the next election cycle for the President of the U.S. comes around, we vote in a strong conservative like Reagan, not some pussy, America-hater, Islam lover like B. Hussein Obama. Do you recall what happened when Reagan was voted into office for his first term? The Iranians pissed in their pants and released the hostages.

We don’t need someone like McCain in the presidency either. I am grateful for his service to this country and thank him for his sacrifices to this country. He is a true American hero. But he is also too nice when it comes to the treatment of the Islamofacsists, or any other enemies of the U.S. I don’t think that any of these state sponsers of terror would quake in their boots with McCain as president.

How about we nominate someone like Clint Eastwood? He has more experience in running a government the Obama has. I would love to see him in talks with these Mulims counties. Wouldn’t it be great to see Clint confronting Ahmadinejad or Kim Jong Il and he says to them, “Go ahead, make my day”.

Or better yet, he says, “I know what you’re thinking. “Did he drop six nukes or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a 44 Megaton bomb, the most powerful nuke in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”

Jarhead on August 22, 2009 at 1:35 pm

it sounds like fun to live in the movies. i should try it sometime. i guess you’re right, there is a lot you can do… in the movies!

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 22, 2009 at 2:02 pm

I will never forget the Pan Am 103 destruction because my next door neighbors lost their only son and only child, a Syracuse student in that destruction, which also ultimately destroyed their marriage. Having lost our firstborn son, my husband could never speak with either parent without being undone to tears.
We have to punish the perps of these acts wherever they are found and punish hard. Scotland made a huge mistake – boycotts are being discussed including no doubt good Scottish single malt whiskey, but the Scots have become a bunch of eunuchs, totally demoralized and weakened by a century and more of British Socialism.

Jamie Shafer on August 22, 2009 at 4:11 pm


    As God is my witness, I will never travel to SCOTLAND again. I will never purchase a Scottish product. I will not watch the PGA Scotland gold.

    We can, and will co$t them.

Jarhead and Lisa
Don’t let this little muzzy SOB abby get to you, for he knows not what is going to happen to him and his muzzy ilk. He forgets his history at his own peril. To give you a little preview of things to come, take a little gander to what is happening in Denmark. The folks there have had enough and are taking matters into their own hands, much to the muzzies chagrin..

Drakken on August 22, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    I completed some undergraduate work at U of Copenhagen. It upsets me that the Danes and the Swedes (for that matter) let the vermin in and are submitting to it. I won’t be traveling to Scandinavia again, either. I am too immodest. My hair isn’t covered. You can see hands and feet too. I don’t want to be RAPED by some muzzie gang and then blamed for it.

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 3:14 pm

you should raise your voice a little louder when you say all that, so that you can believe it more. by the way, is drakken a cooler way to say dragon? is it like a combination of dragon and drako, or darko, or something? do you imagine yourself in a dark cape? playing dungeons and dragons, the crusader edition? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 22, 2009 at 5:03 pm

    I can see that you have a superior intellect by the insightful comment.

    Sorrow01 on August 23, 2009 at 2:26 am

I’m sure you know that as my fellow Marine, pukes like this don’t get to me. They can try to play their little games, but you and I know much better f#ck-f#ck games. Semper Fi, brother.

Jarhead on August 22, 2009 at 5:57 pm


please say the f word three more times.

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 22, 2009 at 6:43 pm

Ah don’t worry Jarhead, these effing muzzies if anything do amuse me, for I do find it very ironic that when faced one on one they squeal like little girls. being inbred like they are they can’t help it. and as for the playing games with Uncle Sams Misguided Children, boy don’t i know it. been there done that got the t-shirt and sent the postcard. Probably ate some of the same ground I am sure. Now to have a little bit of fun with our friend and muszbot abby, why yes Drakken does mean Dragon and it very prominate in the family crest, so good of you to ask. As too my favorite games? Hmm oh yes, Cowboys and muzzies is one of my absolute favorites, would really love to explain in detail but alas this is a family program so I am sure you understand. I really do hope that you say a lovely hi to auntie mom and uncle dad for me will you. Lastly sorry too disapoint you oh lover of little boys but unfortunately I don’t wear a cape, but while at work I do wear a lovely shade of khaki. Thank you so much for asking. anything else that I can do to assist you to pardise please don’t hesitate to ask, for I am retired from Govt and I am here to help you.

Drakken on August 22, 2009 at 8:41 pm

i’ll let you know. now go drink beer.

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 22, 2009 at 11:02 pm

I had no idea.. thanks… To think he wants the GITMO guys here in standish. Amazing, they very possibly will find lots of support from Dearborn. Scary stuff

sharon on August 23, 2009 at 12:03 am

abby’s just trying to deal with the fact that his culture has never created anything of value.

Gary Rosen on August 23, 2009 at 3:56 am

    You are wrong. Muzzies are very close to actually building a bicycle (IOW, they haven’t yet built a bicycle.).

    goldenmike4393 on August 24, 2009 at 5:52 pm

Gary, you are exactly right, and honest, and you know it, deep in your heart.

Abdel-Basset-tista on August 23, 2009 at 4:04 am

This is worthy of a CNN spot. Do those TV reporters need so much time to prepare their looks for air time they can no longer report? Sick.

F: FOX News is no different and no better. DS

FeFe on August 23, 2009 at 11:00 am

FeFe, all the media is controlled by global corporate interests. Rarely is there independent journalism. It’s all about power and gatekeeping.

And Debbie, is it true that a Saudi prince controls a share in Fox News/News Corp?

Bob Porrazzo on August 23, 2009 at 9:40 pm

Fleiter, No Santa & Cat,

I’m glad youse guys does got good memories. I too remember that shortly after the bombing, the press was leaking stories about Syrian & “palestinian” [Jibril] involvement. But the powers that be in the State Department must have decided that such a heinous crime cannot be allowed to be imputed to syria or “palestinians.” That truth might spoil future “peace efforts”. If people knew that Syrian Arabs and palestinians, whether Jibril’s gang or any others, were involved in the crime, it might be harder to pressure Israel to give in to these genocidal IslamoNazis. So the Libyans were made the fall guys, the scapegoats for what they were involved in but only on the edges, not at the center, as Debbie pointed out.

of course, there is no contradiction between Iranian involvement and syrian-Jibril gang involvement. We all know that Iran funded them, and still is closely allied with Syria and the Assad gang running the show there. So why does the US state department, the brit foreign office and the french quai d’orsay try so hard to make semi-Nazi syria look respectable.

By the way, Debbie, did obama’s comrade, the syrian agent Tony Rizk, have any connection to the lockerbie bombing??

Eliyahu on August 24, 2009 at 6:24 am

I’m sure there is much that can be done… the problem as I see it; we have an administration over run with left leaning pussies, we have right of center pussies masquerading as conservatives, and right leaning conservatives being accused of being the totality of the problems of the right of center and lefties. These people have only got a set of balls when they attack conservatives, Christians and, liberty and freedom loving patriots.

The only solution I have is a personal one: I stopped flying, vote against anything that doesn’t agree with real conservatism and now have sworn off one of my favorite beverages, Scotch. Back to Kentucky Bourbon, my other favorite. I buy American every chance I get (except now I probably won’t buy GM or Chrysler), eat fast food, and drive as far as the gasoline will last. I’m no longer a member of AARP and I’m sure at my age (after “contributing” to the system all my life) will have to work even after my demise.

And as far as Libya and Syria goes… the only other solution is to Nuke them all and let God sort it out.

Smile, it could be worse. Have a good day.

A.R.Eatough on August 24, 2009 at 7:22 pm


Over two months have now passed since the release of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi. You write: ‘because strong evidence ties him to the bombing’. What strong evidence? The prosecution stated that its case was entirely circumstantial. The only ‘evidence’ which specifically identified Megrahi was the testimony of Tony Gauci, a Maltese shopkeeper, who under oath would only say that Megrahi “resembled” the person who bought the clothes that the bomb was said to be wrapped in. When first interviewed he said that the person who bought the clothing was 6 feet or more in height and about 50 years old – Megrahi was 5 feet 8 inches and 36 years old.

‘US paid reward to Lockerbie witness, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi papers claim’

This article was picked-up by newspapers in many countries throughout the world, especially in Australia where the Gauci brothers were ‘relocated’, but not in the United States.

From paragraph 89 of the Opinion of the Court –

“We are aware that in relation to certain aspects of the case there are a number of uncertainties and qualifications. We are also aware that there is a danger that by selecting parts of the evidence which seem to fit together and ignoring parts which might not fit, it is possible to read into a mass of conflicting evidence a pattern or conclusion which is not really justified.”

‘THE LOCKERBIE DISASTER’ an essay by Robert Black Q.C. –,

‘US presence makes trial far from “normal” article from the Journal of the Law Society of Scotland –,



The following is from a letter which I sent to the FBI Director –

“Criminal Law in Scotland has two procedures – Solemn and Summary. Solemn procedure applies to the most serious criminal offences. The burden of proof , for a safe conviction, is the responsibility of the prosecution and it must be BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT. You further write “the conviction by jury after the defendant is given all due process”. A Solemn procedure criminal trial conducted under Scots Law occurs before the High Court and requires a jury of 15 members. There was NO JURY at the Camp Zeist trial. There are three possible verdicts available – GUILTY, NOT GUILTY or NOT PROVEN. Compassionate release is part of the DUE PROCESS of Scots Law.”

These are lies and your facts are wrong about my brother Khalid Nazir Jaafar. I actually received his luggage from the investigators 12 years after the crash. Guess what?!?!? his luggage was fully intact. These accusations that were made against him long ago was actually by the media and not by the courts. The courts immediately found these accusations to be totally bogus. They also found his body with nothing but a simple scratch on his forehead. He went back to his home town to ask for a girls hand in marriage and he sadly never made it back. and the bomb that you are talking about was a bag of C4 hidden inside a cassette player and my brother did not own a walkmen. I want to show this to my parents but I am afraid to upset them because after my brother’s death we had our name dragged in the mud. If you the writer of this article have the guts to make up these false accusations then you should have the guts to send your article to the president and reply to my message. I can take you to court for these false accusations. If you do not remove this disgusting article then I will show it to my lawyer who has been representing our family in this case for years. but if you are very confident in your facts then you can tell Arlington cemetery to remove my brother’s name from the Pan Am 103 memorial. That is if you really care about the victims of this tragedy or are you just looking for something to write about. You should come on over to our home and then I can give you some real primary sources to help your article be more credible.

LJ: Tell us about your family’s relationship with convicted felon, Mahmoud “Mike” Younis, who defrauded the federal government and Department of Education, and also masterminded the Medicaid fraud baby scam for pregnant Muslim illegal aliens. Why did he change your brother’s ticket at the last minute, so he could be on the flight? Tell us about your brother’s alleged status as a drug courier. Will you condemn Hezbollah, the PFLP, and the PFLP-GC? DS
