Bernard Kalb resigned today (08 October 1986) as chief spokesman for Secretary of State George P. Shultz in protest of the government’s disinformation program directed at Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi. (…) He said his choice was to remain at the department and vanish into acquiescence or to quit in protest.” LA Times (See video)

La Belle Disco bombing; Reagan accuses Libya
Evidence: a pair of intercepted cable transmissions from the Libyan People’s Bureau–its embassy–in East Berlin.
A witness names the cables’ recipient as Said Rashid. (This is the “Said Rashid” who allegedly ordered the MST-13 timers from MEBO. Bollier claims that he delivered the first series of MST-13 timers to Rashid in Libya sometimes between September and November 1985. Bollier’s passport has no Libya entry stamp for this period.)
“The despicable attack in Berlin fits the pattern of increased Libyan activities including Rome and Vienna. We have suspicions that this bombing is part of that pattern.” Bernard Kalb. See Video
German authorities do not support this theory. Christian Lochte, Head of the Hamburg Branch of the BfV speaks on TV the next week: “I cannot rule out that Libya, in some way, is responsible. But I must say that such hasty blame regarding Rome and Vienna, for which Libya had immediately been made responsible, did not prove to be correct.”
