Pardon my late response to your email. I have been up to my ears in Stratfor briefings this week and this is the first free day that I have had. I am glad that you wrote to Fred Burton and Scott Stewart. They are both valuable, professional guys and are part of the STRATFOR hierarchy.

As I am sure that Chet told you, I am still with STRATFOR creating business in the Washington area. Would love to hook up with you and Chet for lunch and to share stories.

Hey Ron. I just found this article your guys wrote last year. It is great, and will be put to good use as I fight with the contrarians. I saw Chet Nagle at a party last night for just a few minutes and we didnt get much time to chat. Hope you are well

Thanks Fred. John Bennan called me last Aug 19th, the day before Megrahi was released, to say that he had just spoken to Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill, at the request of President Obama. We were still not sure what MacAskill was going to do, but John Brennan said they were assured there would not be any "celebratory activities." That assurance was clearly not honored.
I will add you and Mike Parks to my email list. Thanks for all your support.
All the best,
Frank Duggan

Hello Frank,

Horrible event.

I would be honored to send you a signed copy of my book Ghost, which discusses my read (from the DSS end) on the Libyan attack. Pls also add me to the mailing list, if you can.

Our CT office started and operated the Rewards for Justice Program (am copying former agent Mike Parks) and we set the initial $2 million dollar reward on the heads of the Libyans responsible.

Simply shocking to me that we allowed the hand-over to the Libyans. Have you been given any sort of briefing by State or the Agency on what really took place?

How can we help you?

Best Regards,

Yes, Gannon is a great guy, as is my colleague Ron Duchin.

I'm cc:ing another of my Stratfor colleagues on this message. His name is Fred Burton and he worked the Pan-Am 103 investigation for DS. It is indeed personal for us.

Is there anything we can do to help you and your organization?

Good to hear from you, Scott. That paper on the Lockerbie bombing was spectacular and I am embarrassed I never saw it before. I knew a bunch of Stratfor guys in years past (Ron Duchin, Buckley Carlson, Blumel (forget his first name) and some other guys I helped in your efforts on Bankruptcy reform about ten years ago.
That Pan Am flight was amazing- it is very rare that I dont meet someone who knew someone connected to the bombing, and like you, it becomes personal. A lot of guys knew Matt Gannon, including John Brennen, now the terrorism czar, and it is personal with him too. The Gannon family was large, as you know, so I assume your friend is Richard Gannon. He is a good guy, very quiet, and shows up every year at the memorial service we have at Arlington Cemetery. I will add you to my mailing list and you will get more shit than you want, but you can just delete it. Thanks again, and let's stay in touch.
All the best,
Frank Duggan

Hello Frank,

Thank you for the very kind words. I lost two colleagues on Pan-Am 103 (Dan O'Connor and Ron Lariviere) and the brother of a third colleague (Matt Gannon) was also killed on that flight.

I'd like to thank you for all the efforts your organization makes to help bring those who murdered my colleagues and the rest of the Pan-Am 103 victims to justice.

Warmest regards,

Scott Stewart

This is the best and clearest explanation of the bombing and the evidence against Libya that I have seen. I have always had great admiration for Stratfor but I must admit, I just found this year old article. It will be very helpful in light of the persistent charges from the Libya shills and Megrahi supporters who try to point the finger away from Libya. Thank you very much.

For Mr Duggan's interest

Mr Mgrahi never carried out the bombing of Pan Am 103, which was done by the US and Iran following an agreement reached in Glion Switzerland to allow the destruction of a US plane and exactly 254 countable lives (i.e. excluding US govermental personnel, with one exception) for the provably deliberate shooting down of IR655, the Iranian Airbus on 3rd July 1988.
