A man who told the U.S. television show “60 Minutes” that he could prove Iran was responsible for the 1988 Pan Am Flight 103 bombing that killed 270 people is an impostor, according to CIA and FBI sources quoted in The Washington Post. The man, who claimed he was a former Iranian intelligence officer, “lacks basic knowledge of Iran’s intelligence apparatus” and “has been lying about lots of stuff,” according to one senior U.S. official.
