“Let me take, for example the Lockerbie case and also the case of the Ténéré [UTA] that were blamed on Libya when all intelligence services know that these attacks were committed by Ahmed Jibril under the inspiration and funding from Iran.”

French Directorate of Territorial Surveillance
The Direction de la Surveillance du Territoire (DST; English: Directorate of Territorial Surveillance) was a directorate of the French National Police operating as a domestic intelligence agency. It was responsible for counterespionage, counterterrorism and more generally the security of France against foreign threats and interference.
It was created in 1944 with its headquarters situated at 7 rue Nélaton in Paris. On 1 July 2008, it was merged with the Direction centrale des renseignements généraux into the new Direction centrale du renseignement intérieur.
The DST Economic Security and Protection of National Assets department had units in the 22 regions of France to protect French technology. It operated for 20 years, not only on behalf of defense industry leaders, but also for pharmaceuticals, telecoms, the automobile industry, and all manufacturing and service sectors. [WIKIPEDIA]

Yves Bonnet and Lockerbie
Yves Bonnet was the DST Director November 1982 to August 1985. In the following video, Bonnet makes a remarkable allegation: he claims that Libya is NOT responsible for Lockerbie!
Here is a ‘rough’ translation:
“This is not a book about to the terrorist activities of Libya, because I think that, on this subject as on many others, we have far exceeded the limits of the truth and indeed credibility.
Let me take, for example the Lockerbie case and also the case of the Ténéré that were blamed on Libya when all intelligence services know that these attacks were committed by Ahmed Jibril under the inspiration and funding from Iran.
We know this. The American Intelligence Agencies know it, the MOSSAD knows it, the DGSE knows it and, in fact, the then Director of the DGSE – Claude Silberzahn – was not shy to say it out loud.
You know, in French, ‘La Libye” and “L’alibi” sound the same….
I think Libya has become — because of the personality of its chief Muammar Gaddafi — a rather convenient target country.”

“Ce n’est pas un ouvrage consacrée à l’activité terrosriste de la Libye, parce que je pense que sur ce sujet comme sur beaucoup d’autres, on a largement dépassé les limites de la verité et même du crédible.
Je prends pour exemple cette affaire de Lockerbie et également l’affaire du Ténéré qui ont été imputées à la Libye alors que tous les Services de Renseignements savent que ces attentats ont été commis par Ahmed Jibril sous l inspiration et le financement de l’Iran.
Et cela, on le sait. Les Services Américains le savent, le MOSSAD le sait, la DGSE le sait et d ailleurs le Directeur de la DGSE de l’époque — Claude Silberzahn — ne s’est pas privé de le dire.
On peut écrire “La Libye’ d’une autre façon; on peut l’écrire ‘L’Alibi’.
Je pense que ce pays est devenu, de part le personalité de son principal dirigeant — Muamar Kadhafi –un pays cible assez commode.”
