William Barr is a US Deep state lawyer who was the 77th and 85th United States Attorney General in the administrations of Presidents George H. W. Bush and Donald Trump.


With citing a specific source, Mark Gorton refers to William Barr as "Cabal cocaine trafficking logistics coordinator".[1]

Lockerbie bombing

At a press conference on 21 December 2020, the 32nd anniversary of the downing of Pan Am Flight 103, and just before his second stint as US Attorney General came to an end, William Barr announced criminal charges against an alleged bombmaker Mohammed Abouagela Masud in relation to the Lockerbie bombing.[2] Back in November 1991, early in his first tenure at the US Justice Department under President George H.W. Bush, William Barr had indicted two Libyan intelligence-linked men, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi and Lamin Khalifah Fhimah, whom the US accused of conspiring to place explosives in a portable radio/cassette player that was inside a suitcase on the aircraft. Barr explained:

"The investigation also pointed to a third conspirator, a man known by the name of Abu Agila Mas'ud Kheir Al-Marimi, who at the time, investigators were unable to identify or locate this third person."

Prosecutors referred to the alleged bombmaker as "Masud" in court documents. He is currently in custody in Libya, prosecutors said. But, unlike the extraditions of Megrahi and Fhimah over 20 years ago for trial in the Netherlands, US authorities now expect to extradite Masud to stand trial in the USA.[3]

In December 2022, after a Libyan militia group had kidnapped Masud, a “team of Americans” arrived in Misrata and bundled him on to a flight in a private jet from the city’s airport to Malta. Masud was then taken to the US.[4]

Barr calls for death penalty

On 12 December 2022, when the suspect Abu Agila Masud appeared in a Washington DC court for a preliminary hearing, William Barr told the BBC's Sarah Smith that Masud should face the death penalty. Barr said he had wanted the first Lockerbie trial - which took place in a Scottish court convened in the Netherlands in 2000 - to be held in America. The historic court case saw Abdelbaset al-Megrahi found guilty of murder in 2001, and his co-accused, Lamin Khalifah Fhimah, found not guilty.

"I wanted it to be tried in the United States as well. And I wanted to pursue the death penalty in the United States," Mr Barr said, at the same moment that Masud was appearing in a courthouse in Washington DC.
"I didn't want to proceed to Scotland, partly because Scotland would not impose the death penalty."
"Personally, I think terrorists who commit these kinds of atrocities should be executed."

The prosecution said on 12 December 2022 that they will not seek the death penalty if Mr Masud is convicted, however.[5]

Spence and Epstein

Full article: Epstein affair

Henry Vinson, owner and operator of the largest gay escort service in Washington DC, described a person looking a lot like Barr in his book Confessions of a D.C. Madam:

“As I sat down, Spence seated himself on the chocolate sofa next to a man in his late fifties, who had balding black hair and brown, round-framed glasses. He wore a blue, pinstripe suit, white shirt and a red tie. A miniature U.S. flag was pinned on his lapel. Spence introduced the man to me by name and also disclosed his title. He was in the administration of George H.W. Bush. I feel that the Bush administration had decided to pull out a big gun to eradicate any traces of Gregg's affinity for gay escorts, because Gregg had been so instrumental in Iran Contra and because he was en route to becoming the United States Ambassador to South Korea.
Spence had dropped the name name of the cabinet member months earlier, when he revealed that he routinely provided him with adolescent boys.”

William Barr was US Attorney General at the time of the Epstein affair. Barr's father, Donald Barr, was headmaster at the elite Dalton School from 1964 to 1974. During his time as Dalton's headmaster, Barr hired Epstein as a math teacher despite the fact that Epstein had failed to complete his degree and was only 21 years old at the time. In 1973, Donald Barr published Space Relations, a science fiction novel about a planet ruled by oligarchs who engage in child sex slavery.[7]

William Barr ordered the prison governor, Lamine N'Diaye, be reassigned to a desk post at the Bureau of Prisons' regional office in Pennsylvania. However, it was revealed in January 2020 that he was instead assigned to a "top job" at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County, New Jersey.[8]
