IS OKC BOMBING AND BCCI TIED TO IRAN CONTRA?
The Pakistani based Bank of Commerce and Credit (BCCI) was involved in global drug and arms trafficking and money laundering in the 1980s. Former CIA director
William Casey himself met with the Pakistani BCCI founder Agha Hasan Abedi. The CIA also paid its own agents through the bank and used BCCI to fund black ops. See: The Case That Kerry Cracked.
Acting CIA Director Richard Kerr publicly acknowledged before Congress on October 25, 1991 that the CIA had also used BCCI for certain intelligence-gathering operations. See: BCCI, The CIA and Foreign Intelligence.
Robert Gates was William Casey’s deputy at CIA during the BCCI operations. Gates testified the CIA began investigating the bank in 1984 and briefed the Treasury Department and other agencies on BCCI in January 1985 and 1988, but never told the Justice Department after discovering illegal conduct by BCCI officials. Some charge that Gates hindered an investigation of BCCI because the CIA used the BCCI bank for covert operations, including arms shipments to Iran in exchange for US hostages held by Iran as part of the Iran Contra operation. CIA officials told Congress they informed Gates about the diversion of weapons for hostages as early as August 1986. Robert Gates was National security adviser and CIA Director for President HW Bush Today, Robert Gates is the Secretary of Defense for President GW Bush. See: Web of Three Scandals.
This April 4, 2007 article Questions Linger About Bushes and BCCI by Lucy Komisar provides additional information concerning BCCI illegal bank operations connected to OKC bombing provocateurs and the reasons for cover-up by pro Muslim Congressional officials, federal officials in the FBI, CIA, and DOJ and by Presidents HW Bush, GW Bush and Clinton. The BCCI connection to the OKC bombing was addressed in my recent article OKC Bombing Legacy: More Islamic Terror Attacks. I will now further analyze and point out the significance of the content of Komisar’s article based on information found in my book The Oklahoma City Bombing Revelations. The book can be downloaded for free here or here.
Money raised by drug trafficking was laundered through BCCI to help finance “off the books” covert operations to buy weapons for Iran in exchange for US hostages and helping Nicaraguan rebels (Iran Contra), to support the mujahidin fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan and to transfer US WMD technologies and materials to Iraq via Ishan Barbouti, Ramzi Yousef and the BCCI assisted BNL bank branch in Atlanta, Georgia.
In her article, Lucy Komisar mentions Saudi Prince Turki Faisal who was deeply involved with BCCI. Prince Turki called former CIA station chief Vincent Cannistraro the day of the OKC bombing and claimed that Saudi intelligence knew that Iraq had hired 7 Pakistanis connected to the BCCI and CIA backed mujahidin to help carry out the OKC bombing. One the day of the OKC bombing, three Pakistanis, Anas and Asad Siddiqy and Mohammed Chatfi, were arrested in OKC and Dallas after having been seen moments before the bombing with Timothy McVeigh by witness Debbie Burdick. These same three Pakistanis had been suspects in the 1993 WTC bombing. Even though bomb-sniffing dogs found explosive residues in their car, they were later released after OKC FBI and CIA agent Floyd Zimms gave out false information about their car whose plate had been switched. FBI 302 reports of their arrest were found in FBI Bomb Task Force inspector Danny Defenbaugh’s office in Dallas in January 2001. Witness Debbie Burdick was later threatened by FBI agent Odom from Denver not to talk about her seeing McVeigh with the Siddiqys and Chafti in OKC.
Melvin Lattimore is a black Muslim convert named Mujahid[in] Menepta who took the name Mujahid possibly in connection with his being involved in the CIA and BCCI backed operations to train the mujahidin to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. According to November 2001 federal court testimony in OKC by BATF agent Larry Whitney, Menepta was involved in the 1993 WTC and 1995 OKC bombings. Mujahid[in] Menepta was seen with McVeigh’s car and FBI informants Shawn Kenny and James Rosencrans at the Travelers Aid a block west of the bombed Murrah Federal building in OKC the day before the OKC bombing. Menepta was also 9/11 “wannabe hijacker” Zacharias Moussaoui’s roommate in Norman, OK up until August 2001 when Menepta traveled to Minnesota and tried to bail Moussaoui and his other roommate, Moshen AlAtas, out of jail after they were arrested by the FBI. Menepta has been tied to AlQaeda, AlFatah and AlFuqra terror organizations in OK and throughout the U.S. Despite all this history about Menepta presented in the Federal OKC court, Menepta was only sentenced for possessing a firearm after having a previous felony conviction. Menepta served time in prison for less than two years. The FBI and DOJ protected Mujahid Menpeta and kept the public from learning of his known CIA and BCCI connected roles in the 1993 WTC, the 1995 OKC and the 9/11 attacks.
Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and Senator Orrin Hatch were not only both close to Saudi Prince Turki and Pakistani Intelligence services, they were both involved in the illegal Pakistani, Saudi and CIA backed BCCI covert operations with the mujahidin and Iran Contra. Both men called off scheduled hearings that would have exposed CIA, BCCI connections and their own prior warnings of the OKC bombing. For more details, see the chapter Hearings Called Off By Hatch And Rohrabacher Could Have Exposed Their Involvement With Those Behind OKC Bombing.
Rohrabacher and Hatch knew that three Pakistani’s, the Siddiqys and Mohammad Chafti, had been involved in the OKC bombing. Rohrabacher and Hatch knew of Prince Turki’s claim that 7 Pakistanis involved with BCCI had helped do the OKC bombing. Rohrabacher was given detailed information about Menepta’s role in the OKC bombing and his terror connections to AlQaeda, AlFuqra and with the Pakistani, Saudi, CIA, and BCCI backed mujahidin. Yet Rohrabacher chose to leave all of this information out of the report he issued in December 2006 in place of the OKC bombing hearings he had scheduled but then had cancelled. Please refer the chapter The “Reasons” Why Rohrabacher Made His OKC Bombing Investigation And Report Deficient and to another
Hawkins Energy operations in Pakistan, Baluchistan, Afghanistan and Iran were conducted for some of the same purposes and by many of the same Bush connected people behind BCCI, especially the people at American Equity Investors (AEI). The officers of AEI included not only Clinton confidant Terry Lenzner, but also a group of men who had served at the National Security Council (NSC), at the highest levels of the CIA, in the White House for Presidents HW Bush and Ronald Reagan. These men had been at the heart of formulating and carrying out the transfer of US WMDS to Iraq through the BNL bank, backing the Pakistani, Saudi and Bin Laden support for the mujahidin (precursors to Taliban and AlQaeda), laundering drug and arms money through the corrupt U.S./Pakistani BCCI bank operation, and conducting the Iran Contra operations (with the help of BCCI, the Pakistanis and Saudis).
Hawkins Energy is in Tulsa Oklahoma and one of its officers is Pakistani, Mujeeb Cheema, who has been implicated in the OKC bombing. Cheema is Director of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) that controls most of the Saudi Wahhabist extremist mosques in the US that were also associated with the 9/11 hijackers. One of the Muslim Brotherhood terror fronts in the US is The Dow Jones Islamic Fund (DJIF). The DJIF is offered by Allied Asset Advisors, a subsidiary of Cheema’s North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). See: Pakistani Muslim Leader Suspected in OKC Bombing Has Backing of Investors Connected to NSC, CIA, Bush, Lenzner, Iran Contra, Mujahidin, BCCI, U.S. WMD Transfers to Iraq.
Roger Moore was involved with the CIA, FBI, and the Bushes in the BCCI backed Iran Contra operation. Moore also built nitromethane-powered boats for HW Bush and CIA associate Don Aranow in Florida. Nitromethane was used to build the OKC truck bomb. Moore encouraged and provided explosives to McVeigh for the OKC bombing.
Dual US/Israeli intelligence asset William Northrup was directly involved in the BCCI and Robert McFarlane backed Iran Contra operation to provide weapons to Iran in exchange for US hostages held by Iran. Northrup told KTOK radio news in OKC, this author and the Pentagon terror advisor, Jesse Clear, that Northrup gave the FBI in OKC warning of the OKC bombing on 4/17/1995 after returning to OKC from Florida.
Komisar’s article also discusses the BNL bank. The BNL branch bank in Atlanta, Georgia is the BCCI backed bank that HW Bush and the CIA used to transfer US WMD technologies and materials to Iraq. Ishan Barbouti traveled with Ramzi Yousef to acquire US WMDS for Iraq with the help of HW Bush, the CIA, BCCI and BNL. Ramzi Yousef helped OKC bomb plotter Terry Nichols during their Abu Sayef cell meetings with Khalid Mohammed in the Philippines in 1994 monitored by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and US ambassador to the Philippines, John Negroponte. Ramzi Yousef was convicted for being behind the 1993 WTC bombing.
Ishan Barbouti set up a Muslim Brotherhood terror and criminal enterprise cell in OKC that is still operational and known to the FBI. Barbouti’s cell was involved in the OKC bombing with Iraqi suspect Al Hussaini and Mujahid[in] Menepta. Barbouti's son, Heidar, gave protection to Al Hussaini after the OKC bombing at Heidar’s Houston based company, IBI,. The FBI and CIA have protected Hussaini from arrest and prosecution. Al Hussaini, who served in Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi Republican Guard, had been brought to OKC before the bombing by Presidents HW Bush and Clinton and the CIA. See my book chapter Ishan Barbouti Set Up Terror Enterprise For Iraq.
Komisar describes Saudi banker and Bush business partner Khalid Mahfouz and his money laundering involvement in BCCI. Mahfouz was on the board of InfoCom and Holy Land Foundation (HLF) in Dallas with Bush narco attorneys Adkin and Gump. There was a raid on InfoCom and HLF on 9/5/2001, just 5 days before 9/11 because of their laundering money to Islamic terror organizations including Hamas. All the docs seized in the raid may NOT have been turned over to a federal grand jury investigating HLF. There is suspicion that evidence that was confiscated but not turned over implicated Mahfouz in the 9/11 attacks. Komisar reports that in 1992 Khalid Mahfouz established the Muwafaq ("blessed relief") Foundation in the offshore Channel Islands. The US Treasury Department has called Khalid Mahfouz’s Muwafaq Foundation "an al Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen."
Mufid Abdulqader, the top fundraiser for Hamas in the US and for Khalid Mahfouz’s HLF, has been tied to those directly involved in the OKC bombing plot. He was indicted for his role at HLF, but has never been prosecuted for HLF or the OKC bombing. Abdulqader’s brother, Khaled Meshall, is the head of Hamas. Abdulqader now works on the Bush promoted NAU superhighway at the Texas Department of Transportation. Refer to my book chapter Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists In Oklahoma.
James Bath also described in Komisar’s article, as having business connections with Khalid Mahfouz and Bush Harken and Arbusto energy companies, was the man who went unaccounted for with the Alabama Air National Guard at the exact same time as GW Bush.
Muslim FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed by HW Bush and at
DOJ when the Congressional investigations of BCCI illegal money laundering,
arms and drug trafficking were underway. While at Robert Mueller was
at DOJ, HW and GW Bush and Bush associates James Bath, Khalid Mahfouz,
Dana Rohrabacher, John Negroponte, Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft
and Orrin Hatch were never prosecuted for their roles in the illegal
activities of BCCI including Iran Contra and transfers of US WMDs
