Well good to see that you, as am I, are open-minded and willing to hear both sides of the story.
You can save me a hell of a lot of work here, and maybe enjoy a good read yourself. There is a book called
*Trail of the Octopus* by Donald Goddard with Lester K Coleman. Lester K Coleman is an ex-DEA agent, who was heavily involved in DEA Middle East (in particular, Lebanon) operations. The only thing, I am not sure whether this book is available in the US or not, as:
"Under enormous pressure which the publishers will not identify or even acknowledge, Barracade Books has cancelled publication of the American release of Trail of the Octopus, according to a company spokesperson.
But now a new distributor has committed to marketing this book, and doing it in a big way. Hats off to this new company, and "stay tuned" for further information."
So here's hoping that the US censors haven't banned this book. In regards to the book, if you need further information, follow this link for the details (NOTE: This is a search of the Western Australia Library system database, but the book details will be the same)
Here is another good read
Again, WA Library. The book is titled *Foreign Agent 4221*
I think instead of me quoting bits and pieces of these books (and my quotes being miscontrued), that you read them for yourself and get the whole picture (as you obviously already know half the story).
If you don't want to go to the trouble of reading these books, here is a site devoted entirely to the PA103 case, with stories from both sides of the argument
I really do encourage you to explore it fully.
As with all legal cases, conjecture plays a huge part. Who is to know who really is responsible for PA103, but after exhausting these 3 sources, I really do have to lean in favour of the accused Libyans.
