It was my father's booming baritone on the answering machine, each flash indicating the number of messages. That morning I only had one. "Christopher, Call home immediately. Call, as soon as you get this"
New suspects have been identified in the 1988 bombing of a plane over Lockerbie Scotland. Ken Dornstein, brother of one of the 270 victims, talks to Caroline about the new development and how his film, "My Brother's Bomber," helped crack the ca
LONDON (AP) — Scottish prosecutors said Thursday they have identified two Libyans as suspects in the 1988 bombing of a passenger
I found out about Pan Am 103 from the evening news, and I remember thinking that it was nearly Christmas. Surely some of the people on that plane were coming home to see their families. What I didn't know was that one of my relatives had the task of mapping where all the debris fell.
On April 2-5, 2014, former Pan Am employees from all over the world are converging on Honolulu, Hawaii, to enjoy the Pan Am Aloha Celebration. It will be a week of seeing old friends and making new ones, sharing memories and stories.
I hope that with the 25th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing, you spend a few moments thinking of the 270 victims who died tragically but spend even more time thinking of how you can have a positive effect on those around you today. Life is short, and each day is a blessing.
Every day, hundreds of thousands of us go aloft, trusting our lives to hold up beneath us. It sears us still to think of those for whom things went another way.
Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence agent who was found guilty in 2001 of orchestrating the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in 1988, is finally dead.
Do we celebrate the death of a despot or should we set aside our joy to consider that Gaddafi's enemies violated the basic tenets of Islam to kill him?

As the world searches for Gaddafi's whereabouts, a day of reckoning must arrive for all the Westerners who supported him and kept him in power.
How do we make the endgame work in Libya? I'm only 15. This is the first time I've had the chance to watch a war unfold as an aware and politically active person.
Rebels are hailing Moussa Koussa's apparent defection to London as a sign that Muammar Gaddafi's regime is finally cracking
Speak softly and carry a big stick. Twenty four hours after a start to bombing in Libya and it was all but over. A week later and we are handing the mop up operations to NATO and the Europeans.
Let's by God hear it for cowboy decision-making! We've taken over Iraq, and already we're scaring other Muslim potentates into submission. It's that easy.
Given what was known before, the artists performing for the Gaddafis and Dior should have not have gotten involved with the two in the first place. It is convenient that they all distance themselves now.
Just who are the Libyans placing their lives on the line to take Tripoli and establish a post-Gaddafi regime in Libya? If the U.S. and its allies are going to pour economic aid and military support into their hands, in the best of all worlds it would be wise to know just who is on the receiving end. Right now, there is no simple answer. And given the chaos inside Libya and the see-saw nature of the struggle taking place between pro- and anti-Gaddafi forces, the revolution has not had much time to ponder the question.
Will Russia and Poland finally close the book on Katyn with dignity? If so, it can serve as a beacon to a troubled world wrestling with closure to state-sponsored crimes.
