Pan Am 103 Victim’s Father Reflects On Qaddafi’s Death

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Muammar Qaddafi’s reign as leader of Libya is over, and one person that is quietly celebrating in our area is Glenn Johnson, father of Pan Am 103 bombing victim Beth Ann Johnson.

The Johnsons and other families of the victims have long blamed Qaddafi for the bombing of Pan Am 103.

Johnson talked to KDKA AM’s Larry Richert and John Shumway about the death of the Libyan leader.

“This is a great relief to the families. We have been trying for so, so long to get the truth out,” Johnson said. “Qaddafi had admitted to the UN that they were responsible, but then immediately and for years now has been funding different, various figures especially in the Scottish and British government to undermine the conviction of al-Megrahi, who actually caused the bombing.

“This has been a very, very hard thing for the families to endure and for this to finally happen, to finally have the person who is responsible for Beth’s and everybody else on the plane and on the ground’s deaths to come to justice is something that I think will ease all our minds and hearts,” he added.

    Was this killing OK with Rashard Mendenhall or does he wish this dictator was still alive too?

    I was contacted this evening from CENSUS BUREAU with the phone number 812-218-3144. A woman informed me that I was being audited by her boss and being recorded for verification purposes. Sue acted like she did not have my correct address from my form that I completed.

    When the questions regarding where my bank is located, did I have a 1st or 2nd mortage on my home. Do I have home-owners insurance, and the value of my home. I refused to give her the answers. One question did floor me, she wanted to know what time I leave the house each morning to go to work.

    Please warn people, when I tried to return the call, there was a recording that it is not a working number.

    I put the phone number into a search on the net….there is over 12 pages of comments that they too have3 been scammed. My computer received a hugh virus just two days ago…I do not know if these two are connected, but I have never been asked so many personal questions before.
