China Confidential Mideast sources say the energy behemoths worked tirelessly to free the mass-murdering terrorist. The oil companies pressured the UK government, which pressured Scottish authorities. Click here.
The disgraceful deal with the devil recalls the business and financial collaboration that went on during World War II, when major American and German banks and corporations managed to conduct business with each other through Swiss banks and corporate subsidiaries in South America. The scandal raises disturbing questions in todays global economy.

In a related development, Switzerland has officially apologized to the Libyan dictator for the arrest of his son and daughter-in-law on suspicion of beating their servants during a visit to Geneva. China Confidential sources in Switzerland say the charges are widely understood to be true; but the pressure on Switzerland was overwhelming.
