267. 12/21/1988

"On December 21, 1988, 270 people were killed when a bomb destroyed Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. …Two weeks before, on December 5, an alert from Mossad, Israel's famed intelligence service, had been passed to the CIA. It warned that a Pan Am flight from Frankfurt to the U.S. would be bombed within two weeks. Flight 103 was a Frankfurt to U.S.-bound plane. The CIA had never passed the warning to the FBI."
