AN IRANIAN secret agent has come forward to claim that his country was “100 per cent” behind the Lockerbie bombing.
Reza Khalili, who worked as a double agent for the CIA in the 1980s and 1990s, claims that tragic Pan Am flight 103 was deliberately targeted by the Iranian government.
His claims back up the belief that the bombing was carried out in retaliation for the accidental shooting down of an Iranian airliner by American forces in 1988.
Khalili said that he met a met who he believed...

All swords are turning to Iran - personally I dont believe that Lockerbie was any muslim operation at all, but done by MI5/CIA/Mossad to give this political weapon of blame to use in many years to come.
Its a dirty world where we are live in.
The men who ordered the destruction of the Pan Am flight over Lockerbie and the bombings of the Marine Corps barracks in Lebanon, the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, and the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia are pursuing the nuclear program in Iran and with one goal in mind: to obtain The Bomb.
And they want to destroy you.
After the Iranian Revolution, I was an officer in the Revolutionary Guards. I was also a spy working for the CIA, code name Wally. My position in the Guards gave me access to the Khomeini regime’s deep secrets and a firsthand look at the unfolding horror: torture, rapes, executions, assassinations, suicide bombers, training of terrorists, and the transfer of arms and explosives to other countries to support terrorist attacks. I risked my life and my family’s trying to expose this regime because I believed it should be stopped. Once again I incur such risks to bring awareness that lack of action endangers the world...
...Tehran knows full well it is in a race, and if it is able to perfect the technology, the West will have no choice but to live with a nuclear Iran. It also believes that after the current President Bush, the next U.S. administration (if led by a Democrat) will most likely reduce forces and slowly move out, leaving it for the Iraqis to sort things out, which ultimately will result in Iran’s domination of the region, with catastrophic consequences for the Free World. This has already happened with Hezbollah. Iran armed and trained Hezbollah into a political force in Lebanon which controls events on the ground, limiting the power of the Lebanese government and even confronting Israel as we saw in the 2006 Lebanon war.
The allegations that Iran, not Libya, was behind the Lockerbie bombing in December 1988 are not new.
But the assertion by a former Iranian intelligence official, Ahmad Behbahani, that he was responsible for all "terrorist" operations carried out by the Iranian Government beyond its borders - including the Lockerbie bombing - may have an impact on the current trial in the Netherlands of the two Libyan suspects in the case.
The prosecution alleges that a bomb was planted on Pan Am Flight 103 by the two, Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed Al-Megrahi and Al-Amin Khalifa Fhimah, alleged to have been members of the Libyan intelligence services.
The two accused, for their part, have consistently said they are innocent and pointed at Syrian-backed Palestinian extremists.
At the time of the bombing, however, it was Iran that was immediately the leading suspect.
Iran's alleged motive for carrying out the attack was assumed to be a desire for revenge for the shooting down of an Iranian civilian flight by the US warship, the Vincennes, killing all 290 passengers and crew aboard, on 3 July 1988.
Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini vowed at the time that the skies would "rain blood" in revenge.
Now, though, there are suggestions that Mr Behbahani might himself be motivated by a desire for revenge against the current Iranian government.
The US and Israel
There is one more theory, more convoluted and startling than these, that brings Israel, the CIA and US Military intelligence, or the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), into the frame.
An internal investigation by Pan Am is believed to have found that the bomb planted on Flight 103 was put on the plane during a stop-over in Frankfurt, and not in Malta by the Libyan suspects, as alleged by the prosecution in the trial.
The Pan Am report is believed to have concluded that the bomb was not aimed at the killing of Americans in general, but was targeted specifically to kill a small band of DIA operatives that had uncovered a drugs ring run by a "rogue" CIA unit in Lebanon.
The CIA unit is alleged to have been selling drugs to raise funds to buy the freedom of six US hostages held by Hezbollah in Lebanon at the time.
The drugs-ring and the connection to Hezbollah is said to have been set up by Israeli Mossad agents.
I think they should just come right out and say the Iranians are responsible for global warming,
