“In our opinion, it is very likely that the Togo Timers were actually planted by a US Intelligence Agency in order to feed false accusations to the media about “Libyan Terrorism” activities in the context of the 1986 Disinformation Campaign.”
How and why? There was probably a minor event on or around 23 July 1986. With or without help from Libya, these individuals were carrying explosive and FLASH TIMERS.
Because of the ongoing 1986 disinformation Operation, the US decided to blow this story out of proportion and claimed that those folks were about to bomb the US Embassy in Lomé! (Good luck with that…)
But then, a real event occurred in September 1986. And this was a GOLDEN opportunity to frame Libya. The CIA knew since 1984 that a Swiss Company named MEBO had provided a unique timer to Libya and the CIA was in direct contact with MEBO owners and their employee: Ulrich Lumpert.
So, the CIA sent one person to Togo to pretend that the team had recovered MEBO MST-13 timers from Lomé which would have been a clear proof that Libya was behind an act of war against the US.
However, the paper from Bob Woodward killed the plan. At least at the time. But people have short memory. And when the time was right, the “evidence” was resurrected.
