Published on Oct 26, 2018

Former Libyan intelligence official Ahmad Qadhaf Al-Dam, a cousin of former Libyan ruler Mu'ammar Al-Qadhafi, spoke about what he called a "Western plot" to topple the Islamic regimes. During the interview, he said: "They have now found out that Libya had nothing to do with [the Lockerbie bombing]." Asked by the Sada Elbalad TV interviewer why the Libyan authorities had paid compensation to the victims' families, Qadhaf Al-Dam responded: "We took from the West more than we paid." He explained that Libya collected $7 billion from American companies that wanted access to Libya oil. Qadhaf Al-Dam said that Iran, as well as the Arabs, have a right to nuclear weapons for "self-defense." The interview aired on October 20, 2018.
