But who was he working for?

This oughtta be good:
"An American citizen is to be named by the Lockerbie bomber as the man who really carried out the terrorist attack on Pan Am Flight 103.

Lawyers for the bomber were to argue that an 'elusive' terrorist codenamed Abu Elias planted the bomb in December 1988, causing the deaths of 270 innocent people.

Megrahi is now expected to identify the man behind this alias.

The Scottish Sunday Express tracked this man down to his home in the US, and he strongly denied having anything to do with the atrocity.

However, we can reveal that he has connections to at least two international terrorists and a Palestinian terror group, as well as links to the US intelligence services.

. . .

Christine Grahame MSP, who visited Megrahi in Greenock prison and campaigned for his release, is believed to be considering naming the man in the Scottish Parliament chamber.

She said: 'It is apparent that US intelligence has known or must have known the primary suspect of the Lockerbie bombing was alive and living safely in Washington.

There has been a suggestion made that he is in some way an ‘intelligence asset’ for the US and that is why he has been allowed to live in peace.

He must be deeply relieved that Megrahi was forced to drop his appeal and that he will never face justice for this atrocity.'"
The article goes on to combine the PFLP-GC, Iran, and American intelligence, a sort of all-purpose atrocity. Bottom line: he could have been a PFLP-GC guy working on contract for Iran, later turned by American intelligence and protected by them. Of course, if he is connected to the Americans he could have just been pretending to work for Iran . . .
