Oklahoma City bombing

Committed by Iraqi Muslims, blamed entirely on Timothy McVeigh.

FBI coverup     Inconvenient facts     Subsequent events

"The ten-year-old elephant in the room"


On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 am, a terrorist bomb constructed of 4,800 pounds of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, nitromethane, and diesel fuel mixture, detonated in front of the north side of the nine-story Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, killing 168 people, including 19 children under the age of 6, and injuring nearly 700. Timothy McVeigh was quickly arrested and eventually convicted, but local journalist Janna Davis thoroughly - THOROUGHLY – detailed both the Iraqi involvement and the FBI coverup of that involvement in her 2004 book, The Third Terrorist.

FBI coverup

Lawsuit seeking FBI tapes allowed to proceed - September 15, 2013

"U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups denied the government’s motion to dismiss the case Monday and ordered both sides to prepare for a bench trial. He scheduled a status hearing for Nov. 21, at which a trial date will be set. “This is a significant ruling,” said Jesse Trentadue, who has spent years trying to get the tapes. “There’s no doubt that evidence exists.""

Classified FBI memo details Iraq connection - April 5, 2011

"The journalist “advised that a source within the Saudi Arabian Intelligence Service advised that the Oklahoma City bombing was sponsored by the Iraqi Special Services who contracted seven (7) former Afghani Freedom Fighters out of Pakistan,” an April 17, 1996 FBI memo states, recounting the then-ABC journalist’s interview with FBI agents a year earlier on the evening of the April 19, 1995 bombing."

Clinton Administration didn't want war - April 27, 2010

"...evidence was ignored and dismissed because the Clinton Administration didn’t want to go to war with Iraq, the likely culprit, and wanted to blame the attack on domestic right-wingers for political reasons."

Rohrabacher report - 2006

Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the U.S. House Committee on International Relations: "Findings - 1) The FBI was not justified in calling off any further investigation into John Doe 2) The FBI did not thoroughly investigate the potential involvement of Andreas Strassmeir and Hussain al-Hussaini, et. al. despite evidence showing they may have played a role. 3) Authorities erred in allowing Timothy McVeigh to move forward the time of his execution while major questions remained about whether others were involved in the crime. 4) The DoJ has not seriously examined new information uncovered by this subcommittee. Specifically: phone records from Ramzi Yousef to a friend of Nichols’ in-laws as well as the name Samir Khalil appearing on an unindicted coconspirators World Trade Center bombing list. 5) Whether or not there was a foreign connection to the bombing is inconclusive. Questions remain unanswered and mysteries remain unresolved."

Inconvenient (for the FBI) facts

Padilla linked to NYC recruiter cell - June 30, 2004

"al Qaeda suspect Jose Padilla may be tied to a New York City sleeper cell that helped recruit Gulf War veterans as terrorists, according to the Miami Herald."

Did Nichols and Yousef meet? - 2004

"In November 1994, Terry Nichols and Ramzi Yousef both walked on the grounds of the same college campus in the Philippines. Whether their paths crossed is a question that dogs researchers. But their respective itineraries are separated sometimes by a matter of yards, feet or even inches, within a span of days, hours and sometimes minutes."

Is Jose Padilla John Doe No. 2? - June 13, 2002

"This article explores a premise that seems so unlikely, a premise that can't possibly have any basis in truth. However, further investigation reveals that this scenario, in fact, makes absolute sense, and puts all the pieces together. From the streets of Chicago to the sandy deserts of Pakistan and back to the U.S. to bring destruction to Oklahoma City, Jose "Abdullah al Muhajir" Padilla, is John Doe No. 2."

Subsequent events

Hussain Al-Hussaini arrested in Boston - March 10, 2011

"Jayna Davis, author of the 2004 book “Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing,” said she asked a Quincy police detective if Hussain Al-Hussaini, the man police arrested, had a tattoo of an anchor with a snake wrapped around it. He did. Police sent her a photo of him. “His age, his name, the picture, the mug shot – that’s him,” Davis told The Patriot Ledger via telephone after speaking with police. She said the anchor-and-snake tattoo was common among members of a branch of the Iraqi army under Saddam Hussein." [More here.]

April 25, 2013 - "Oklahoma City bombing." I had put in the name Samir Khalil because ever so often I put in his name to see what comes up. (I live in Oklahoma City.) With all that was happening in Boston, I wanted to see if there was anything new on him on the Internet. Trust me, I know he is a bad guy. So, under Rohrabacher 2006 at this link, it looked like maybe you had written some stuff including stuff about Khalil. Just wondering if this was something you had checked out a lot. I was not familiar with your Webpage. I don't think I had ever pulled it up before. - unknown
J.P. replies: Wow, this is embarrassing. Would you believe I had completely forgotten about this page? It looks like something I started (in December 2011) and didn't finish. Recently I wrote "The ten-year-old elephant in the room" to which Jayna Davis responded and I naturally assumed that was what you were referencing. Sigh. Either I'm getting senile or I have too much content on my website to keep organized. Thanks for pointing out a page I'd forgotten. By the way, I uploaded the Rohrabacher Report to my own website so the House can't hide it from you again.

April 25, 2013 - Your link to the Rohrabacher report on the Oklahoma City bombing no longer works. Also, you mentioned that the name Samir Khalil was on the list of unindicted co-conspirators in the first World Trade Center bombing. When did that list come out? Do you know? - unknown
J.P. replies: To what are you referring? I don't remember mentioning either "Rohrbacher" or "Samir Khalil" in a column. Were you responding to "The ten-year-old elephant in the room?"
