"SMOKING GUN" EVIDENCE FOR OKC BOMBING CASE
PART 1 of 6
March 20, 2008
Confirms Federal Connivance with Islamic Terrorists
Since January 2008 there has been a series of new releases of startling “smoking gun” evidence about the OKC bombing almost 13 years after the Alfred P. Murrah building was bombed on April 19, 1995 killing 168 people. This evidence includes:
1. An FBI teletype sent out April 20, 1995 less than 22 hours after the OKC bombing containing information pertaining to prior knowledge, at least 3 possible Islamic terror participants, a getaway brown truck near the Murrah building, and the possible use of “liquid detonators.”
2. New information provided in a Congressional speech made by California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher on February 26, 2008. Rohrabacher conducted a formal investigation of the OKC bombing for over two years while Chairman of the Investigative Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
3. Disclosures of a US intelligence officer about Islamic terror individuals and their business in OKC identified in briefings the first week of the OKC bombing.
The Rohrabacher speech is discussed in Part 1 of this 6-part article. The intelligence briefing disclosure is in Part 2. The contents of parts of the FBI teletype are presented and described in Part 3. Evidence is presented in Part 4 revealing the identities and FBI mishandling of 3 Pakistani suspects with explosives described in an important section of the FBI teletype. Part 5 discusses evidence of DOJ obstruction, and cover up. Some possible motives for the DOJ coverup are given in Part 6.
This newly released evidence for the OKC bombing case provides strong indications of involvement of Islamic terrorists, federal foreknowledge and forewarning, and criminal obstruction, obfuscation, perjury and connivance by federal officials. Connivance is the knowledge of and the consent, either passive or direct, to wrongdoing. When federal officials know of specific crimes and do not attempt to enforce the law against those committing these crimes, it constitutes at least passive consent and therefore connivance, especially when forewarning and foreknowledge is involved.
This new evidence seriously calls into question the public denials by FBI and DOJ officials that no one else besides McVeigh and Nichols were involved in the OKC bombing. Yet officials from these same agencies when confronted with new evidence have also routinely and continued to use false claims of protecting an “ongoing investigation” to evade inquiries by and cooperation with Congressmen, former FBI agents (such as Deputy Director Danny Coulson) and attorneys.
The new evidence, when combined with reliable older evidence, is so compelling and has such ominous consequences for possible future terror attacks that immediate actions are necessary to protect the American public and to prosecute others involved in addition to Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. The public and few Congressional officials are aware of the logical continuity of the full evidence and its implications because much of the evidence has slowly trickled out over the years due to under reporting and sporadic reporting caused in part by federal delays, obfuscations, and dissimulations designed to ameliorate accountability, in a fashion analogous to “penalty killing” tactics used in hockey.
The actions that are needed immediately should include at least more than one of the following - formal Congressional hearings and investigations with subpoenas, appointment of a Special Prosecutor, convening of federal and/or state grand juries, review and change of federal policies that allow known terrorists to commit common crimes and continue to operate in the US, and referral of officials and terrorists involved for criminal prosecutions. Full news media coverage should be given to these proceedings to alert the public to the ongoing threats they face from failed federal policies dealing with Islamic terrorists.
These investigations should also attempt to answer why these failures by federal officials have happened to make whatever changes are necessary to stop them now and to prevent their reoccurrence. The burden to explain and correct these failures rests on government officials not on the public or private citizen investigators. The evidence accumulated by Congressman Rohrabacher and other investigators including official court and FBI documents provide a solid and sufficient basis for conducting these vital investigations.
Even if can be shown during these investigations that none of the likely Islamic terrorist suspects (known to Rohrabacher and other investigators) were actually involved in the OKC bombing, the investigations also need to focus on why the FBI, on orders of the DOJ and White House, dropped their investigations prematurely (within weeks of the OKC bombing in many situations) before all the evidence known to the FBI, CIA, and DOJ about the Islamic suspects was adequately examined despite the false assertions of the DOJ and FBI of an “ongoing investigation” for over 12 years. This is an assertion made by Rohrabacher himself in his recent speech described below.
Islamic terror individuals, groups and networks involved in the OKC bombing are still operating and are a current, ongoing threat to the lives of citizens in the US. Federal policies and corruption that contributed to the OKC bombing, also resulted in the 1993 World Trade Center (WTC) bombing, led to the 9/11 attacks, and will lead to other Islamic terror attacks if these policies and the federal corruption are not addressed and corrected.
Islamic terrorists involved in the OKC bombing and 9/11 that are still operating in the US are known to the FBI, DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and have not been taken off the streets despite federal knowledge that these terrorists are committing common crimes in the US such as income tax evasion, identity theft, drug trafficking, recruiting more terrorists, working with illegal immigrants, and funneling illicit monies to officially designated terror groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah and AlQaeda.
The public should be advised that they are not safe from another terror attack despite new Patriot Act laws because the FBI, DOJ, DHS, and White House are intentionally unwilling to enforce existing laws to take known terrorists committing common crimes off US streets to protect the public. Further, the FBI and DHS have lost track of many Islamic terrorists in the US because they are no longer relying on cell phones but are using couriers instead. The public will be less likely to be as easily taken unawares by another terror attack once they realize that federal law enforcement under current policies has not and will not adequately protect them.
Furthermore, the statute of limitations for the murders of 168 people killed in the OKC bombing has no expiration and justice still needs to be served for the others involved to protect the public from any further terror attacks they may help carry out.
While Chairman of the Investigative Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of California conducted a limited investigation of the OKC bombing for almost two years and issued a report giving incomplete but substantial findings in late December 1996. His report pointed to detailed evidence of involvement of Terry Nichols in the Philippines and in the US with Islamic terrorists associated with the 1993 WTC bombing including Ramzi Yousef. His report also described and complained about an intentional lack of cooperation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI with Congress in his investigations.
After release of his report Rohrabacher also publicly warned that further investigation and actions were required to make sure that those Islamic terrorists and groups he believed were involved could not strike again. Rohrabacher has also publicly said that he believed domestic and Islamic terror groups collaborated in the OKC bombing and are still collaborating in the US. Rohrabacher’s OKC bomb report can be read at The Oklahoma City Bombing: Was There a Foreign Connection?
On February 26, 2008 Congressman Rohrabacher gave a speech ADMINISTRATION NOT COOPERATING WITH CONGRESS on the floor of the House updating the status of his investigations into the Islamic terror connections to the OKC bombing and very high-level federal officials who had detailed knowledge of the bombing including former Clinton National Security Council (NSC) advisor Samuel Berger and DOJ officials. Here are important excerpts from Rohrabacher’s speech:
“…I learned that in the time immediately leading up to the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, convicted Oklahoma City bomber and murderer Terry Nichols had been in Cebu City in the Philippines. His stay in Cebu City coincided with another visitor to that city, al Qaeda's terrorist leader Ramsey Yousef. Interestingly, both Nichols and Yousef used similar bombs and methods just 2 years apart to blow up two American targets. Yousef was the mastermind of the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. Nichols was a coconspirator in the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building in 1995.”
“I have repeatedly requested to interview the imprisoned terrorist Ramzi Yousef. He is in Colorado and in strict lockup. He has been there for 10 years.”
”This request has been supported by the chairman of the Investigative Subcommittee, the chairman of the full Foreign Affairs Committee, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and the chairman of the Intelligence Committee.”
“In spite of that fact and in spite of the fact that I was looking into Yousef's terrorist activities and in spite of the fact that I had obtained new information about Yousef's phone calls right here in the United States and new information about his associates while he was in the United States, the Department of Justice still DISMISSES the effort and, more than that, they are OBSTRUCTING a legitimate congressional investigation, refusing to permit this elected Member of Congress, a ranking member of a congressional investigating committee, to interview a Federal prisoner. They refused access to Yousef claiming that there is a “ongoing investigation. ''
”It is more likely that what we have here is an ONGOING COVERUP and not an ongoing investigation. In fact, I have been told recently by a former member of the Justice Department that they were told routinely simply
“But, again, a lot of my requests don't require a lot of time and effort on the part of the executive branch, and I still have been STONEWALLED.”
“I also asked the Department of Justice on numerous occasions to help me investigate the name Samir Khahil. This name is on a list of unindicted co-conspirators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, again in connection with Ramsey Yousef.”
“Now, I have repeatedly asked the Department of Justice to tell me if the Samir Khahil on the unindicted co-conspirators list of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing is the same Samir Khahil who employed [in OKC] a man [Al Hussain Hussaini] originally identified as John Doe II, the bomber, the number two bomber in the Oklahoma City bombing [seen by numerous witnesses with McVeigh in OKC]. The Justice Department's answer: “It would be too burdensome to find out if it was the same man.''
[I have informed Congressman Rohrabacher that the name, Ahmed Yousef, a named used by a brother of Dr. Samir Khalil, also appears as a name on the unindicted co-conspirator list for the 1993 WTC bombing. This adds weight to the suspicion that there is more to this than just coincidence, since men with BOTH men’s names appear on the list. Further, I have told Rohrabacher that other investigators that he knows have also tried to get a US attorney who worked on the list to explain the presence of the names on the list, but the investigators, like Rohrabacher have been received with an unwillingness to look into the matter]
“Further, we asked help in finding the Arab [Iraqi] immigrant [Al Hussain Hussaini] who looked like John Doe II and the man who was employed by Samir Khahil [in OKC]. We traced him to Boston, but we have had no support or cooperation in finding this very possible terrorist, or at least terrorist suspect. He may well have been working at Boston's Logan Airport on 9/11/01, the day that a plane took off from that airport and was hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Center.”
”So, why would this administration obstruct congressional inquiries such as this?” For part two click below.
