FBI BLOCKS BATF RAID TO STOP OKC BOMBING
In February 1995 the BATF started planning a raid against Elohim City in far eastern Oklahoma to block plans of members of Elohim City from attacking Federal buildings including the Murrah Federal building in OKC that was bombed on April 19, 1995. The planning was based on the intelligence provided by BATF informant Carol Howe to her BATF handler, Angela Findley Graham.
The individuals at Elohim City that Howe had identified as planning to attack federal buildings including Murrah included FBI informants and provocateurs Dennis Mahon (white supremacist informant), German National Andreas Strassmeyer and US Army member Sean Kenny who helped McVeigh rob banks in the Midwest, and Special Forces, CIA and FBI operative David Hollaway. Hollaway had brought Strassmeyer to Elohim City in 1989 (for the CIA, FBI and State Department) and Mahon brought McVeigh later to Elohim City in November 1993.
Hollway also gave McVeigh advice on how to rent a Ryder truck without detection and on where to park the explosives laden Ryder truck for optimum blast damage to Murrah. Hollaway also helped Strassmeyer escape INS arrest after the OKC bombing by escorting him to Germany via Mexico.
Other FBI informants at Elohim City before the OKC bombing were the (Peter) Ward brothers, Kevin McCarthy and the spiritual head, Reverend Millar.
Mahon, Strassmeyer, Hollaway and Kenny have also been identified in FBI teletypes and FBI 302 reports, and legal briefs by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue based on FOIA requests and court ordered document turnovers by Federal judge Dale Kimbal.
By March 1995 the SAC of the OKC FBI office Bob Ricks met with his BATF counterpart, Mr Roberts to have the BATF call off the BATF raid at Elohim City WITHOUT informing Roberts that those identified by Howe to bomb federal buildings and Murrah included the FBI informants and provocateurs helping McVeigh plan and carry out the OKC bombing. Ricks and FBI Director Louis Freeh were fully aware of McVeigh being at Elohim City and of the FBI provocateurs encouraging and helping McVeigh at the time Ricks had BATF official Roberts call off the raid at Elohim City.
THE OKC BOMBING WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED IF THE FBI HAD NOT HAD THE BATF CALL OFF THE RAID AGAINST FBI PROVOCATEURS AT ELOHIM CITY IN MARCH 1995.
The Bob Ricks and the FBI foreknowledge and encouragement of the OKC bombing is consistent with Ricks being seen and talked with in front of Murrah 15 minutes after the bombing by victim family member Janie Coverdale. It is also consistent with court documents and FBI wives telling my wife that the FBI was told to not have FBI agents go inside the Murrah building on the morning of the bombing even though on every other day 3-4 FBI agents were in Murrah by 9 am, just before the approximate time of the bombing, 9:02 am.
The BATF reports of the Rickís and Robertís meeting in March 1995 have been publicly and lawfully available since 1998 and I have personally viewed them. They are in the hands of former OK State Representative Charles Key, investigator JD Cash, and William Jasper of the New American magazine, who posted them on the New American website in 1998.
I told Jesse Trentadue of the BATF documents on a KTOK radio magazine program (in OKC) with Gwin Faulconer Lippert and Mr. Trentadue on Sunday, August 21, 2005.
On August 2, 2005, I wrote US Senators James Inhofe and Tom Coburn and formally requested that they attempt to have full Senate Judiciary hearings on the OKC bombing and federal prosecutions for criminal misconduct by certain individual FBI and DOJ officials. In my request to Senators Inhofe and Coburn, I provided over 500 pages of court documents, FBI teletypes and FBI 302 reports as well as well sourced news articles written by Jerry Bohnen of KTOK radio in OKC as well as my own articles posted on http://libertypost.org and http://freerepublic.com. My letter and documents were sent to and fully discussed with Jane Grisham for Senator Coburn and Stephani Carlton for Senator Inhofe.
I also communicated the BATF document information to the DC offices of US Senators (OK), James Inhofe and Tom Coburn, as well as the DC office of California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
FBI officials like Bob Ricks, Louis Freeh and others like FBI senior case agent Jon Hersely, through the use of 19 bombing provocateurs (identified in earlier articles by this author) and for failure to stop the bombing, may well have become accessories to the murder of 168 people killed in the Murrah bombing. The statute of limitations on murder never expires. Some of these FBI officials (as well as US prosecutors) also appear to have given knowingly false testimony before Federal trials, a Federal grand jury, an OK State trials and an OK state grand jury. The statute of limitation for perjury before the OK state trial of Nichols has not expired. Although the statute of limitations for the Federal trials and grand juries may have expired, these officials can lose their pensions for their criminal conduct and are subject to civil litigation and damages brought by bombing victim family members.
Today, Hollaway, Strasmeyer, Mahon and Kenny are free men walking the streets and FBI officials Ricks, Freeh and Hersely get to enjoy their pensions in retirement while many OKC bombing victims struggle to pay their medical bills and barely survive economically.
It was a violation of the law for the FBI to use the German national Andreas Strassmeyer who was being sought by the INS for being in the US. It was a violation of the law for the FBI to use FBI agent John Hippard and Dave Hollaway to help Strassmeyer avoid arrest by the INS and escape to Germany via Mexico (Hollaway escorted Strassmeyer out of the country and this was known to Louis Freeh). It was a violation of the law for the FBI to use a US military man, Sean Kenny, to help rob Midwest banks and help McVeigh get the proceeds to finance the OKC bombing.
Furthermore, DOJ officials have recently come forward to tell of their knowledge of official DOJ cover up of the OKC bombing before, during and after the Federal trials. This is consistent with reports that Senator Inhofeís chief of staff, Herb Johnson, wrote a letter in September 1998, describing that the DOJ and FBI started an official cover up the first week of the OKC bombing based on what an FBI official told Herb Johnson then.
So far there has been no response from Inhofe or Coburn although the call for Congressional hearings from me and OKC bombing victim family members was discussed in the KTOK radio program with Trentadue on August 21, 2005 referred to above.
The OKC bombing was used as a pretext by Democrats and Republicans as well as Louis Freeh, Janet Reno, Clinton, Senator Arlan Specter, Senator Don Nickles, Senator Orin Hatch, Congressman Ernest Istook and others in May 1995 to finally force through Congress dubious anti- terror legislation (precursor to Patriot Act) that had been rejected and languishing in Congress before the OKC bombing.
Jesse Trentadue has also said publicly on KTOK radio that documents Trentadue has obtained show that US Senator Don Nickles worked closely to help the FBI cover up the OKC bombing and the death of his brother Kenny Trentadue, killed for his close resemblance to an OKC bombing participant and Midwest bank robber, Richard Guthrie
About 4 months ago the FBI and DOJ officially formally acknowledged closing the OKC bombing case but have refused to turn over FBI confiscated surveillance tapes and answer the questions of OKC bombing victim family members as promised once the case was closed.
Will the FBI try to use the sham ruse of reopening the OKC bombing case to avoid court orders by Judge Kimbal in Salt Lake City to turn over to Judge Kimbal the FBIís un-redacted OKC bombing documents by October 12, 2005?
Will FBI Director Robert Mueller continue to ignore the public calls by US Congressmen like Dana Rohrabacher, or the threat of possible Senate Judiciary hearings, to avoid turning over the surveillance tapes and the un-redacted FBI documents? The withheld surveillance tapes may well reveal some of the 19 FBI provocateurs who helped McVeigh. It is already known from a detailed analysis (by this author and Trentadue) of the available redacted FBI documents and teletypes that the un-redacted FBI documents will further implicate the FBI in the deaths of 168 people murdered in Murrah on April 19, 1995.
contact the offices of US Senators Coburn and Inhofe and of Congressman
Dana Rohrabacher and urge them to respond to my letters and evidence,
to have full Senate Judiciary Hearings, to press for prosecutions
for the criminal misconduct of certain FBI and DOJ officials complicit
in the OKC bombing, and to demand that the FBI and DOJ publiclly turn
over all un-redacted FBI documents and surveillance tapes relevant
to the OKC bombing.

Patrick Briley is a Navy Viet Nam era veteran who served on a Polaris ballistic missile nuclear submarine patrol in the Pacific." My Polaris submarine patrol in the Pacific was in far East Asia near China but I can not elaborate any more than that other than to say it was a very special, historically significant and exceptionally dangerous.
Briley was chosen to work under Admiral Rickover at Naval Reactors. He volunteered for Naval service from 1968 to 1976 during the Viet Nam era including being in Naval ROTC, a batallion commander of my ROTC unit and a Midshipman on board the ballistic missile submarine, SSBN 624, the Woodrow Wilson, as well as serving at Naval Reactors in DC for Admiral Rickover.
Patrick started research and investigation into terrorist attacks after the Oklahoma City bombing. Pat submitted his findings concerning the OKC bombing and the 9-11 attacks in briefings to high-level staff for the Senate Judiciary and Senate and House Intelligence committees, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, and the 9-11 Commission.
Hollway also gave McVeigh advice on how to rent a Ryder truck without detection and on where to park the explosives laden Ryder truck for optimum blast damage to Murrah.
