Who sponsored the Lockerbie bomb?

There is a review of Kenny MacAskill's book, written from the point of view of an insider to the judicial process, in the current Private Eye. The review reinforces the evidence pointing to agents of the PFLP-GC as the perpetrators, not al-Megrahi put up by Qaddafi as a scapegoat. Given that Syria sponsored the PFLP-GC and that Iran later supported the organisation, and these were not among the West's favourite nations, I wonder why the Establishment was so keen to accept the Libyan explanation.

And were any related papers recovered from the looting which took place after Qaddafi's overthrow?
