On This Day — Lord Louis Mountbatten Killed by IRA (August 27 1979) [UPDATE : Has Sinn Féin president really apologized for murder of Lord Mountbatten]

“The IRA claim responsibility for the execution of Lord Louis Mountbatten.

On This Day — Operation El Dorado Canyon (April 14 1986) [Timelines & Conspiracy Theories — 2021]

“President Ronald Reagan didn’t seek congressional approval when he bombed Libya (April 14 1986) in retaliation for a bombing of a Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland (Dec. 21 1988).”

Amber Phillips — Washington Post (April 7 2017)

April 14 1986 — Reagan Strikes on Tripoli and Benghazi

April 14 2021 — In a piece published by the Washington Post on April 7 2017, Amber Phillips wrote that President Ronald Reagan’s April 14 1986 bombing raid on Tripoli and Benghazi was retaliation for the December 21 1988 attack on Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie. Obvious nonsense!

Whatever the subject I investigate, I always begin by working out the very best timeline I can manage. This is a theory of mine: No lie, no matter how professional — even a CIA lie — can survive a good timeline. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

“The CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence organized the project, code-named Project MK-ULTRA, in coordination with the U.S. Army Biological Warfare Laboratories. In some cases, academic researchers were funded through grants funneled to them from CIA front organizations while remaining unaware that the CIA sought to use their work for its own purposes. In other instances, however, top officials at these institutions knew about the CIA’s role.”
