The pro-Qaddafi Thomas Mountain wrote the following in yesterday's
What seem to have finally tipped the balance in favor of direct
western military intervention was the reported demand by Gadaffi
that the USA oil companies who have long been major players in the
Libyan petroleum industry were going to have to compensate Libya
to the tune of tens of billions of dollars for the damage done to
the Libyan economy by the USA instigated "Lockerbie Bombing"
sanctions imposed by the UN inSecurity Council [sic] throughout
the 1990's into early 2000's. This is based on the unearthing of
evidence that the CIA paid millions of dollars to witnesses in the
Lockerbie Bombing trial to change their stories to implicate Libya
which was used as the basis for the very damaging UN sanctions
against Libya. The government of the USA lied and damaged Libya so
the USA oil companies were going to have to pay up to cover the
cost of their governments actions. Not hard to see why Gadaffi had
to go isn't it?
Does anybody know what Mountain is talking about? What evidence is
there that American oil companies "were going to have to
compensate Libya to the tune of tens of billions of dollars for
the damage done to the Libyan economy"?
