No oil in Syria, really. Some pipelines, but this mostly it. Beirut office was busted trafficking drugs since the 1980s. The Lockerbie plane crash was by CIA, so not to let four operatives testify before Congress. Case hushed, but an attempt to blame Qaddafi died in Scottish and Belgian courts...
Oil is only a part of it, heroin from Middle East and SE Asia as well as cocaine from S America.
