Back in 1989, a bomb exploded in an airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, and 270 people were killed. Years later, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, a Libyan intelligence agent, was convicted of the bombing, and he’s now serving a life sentence in Britain.

The problem is that a CIA agent apparently planted a key piece of evidence that was used to convict him, and it’s likely that the Libyans were in no way involved.
