This thesis is in direct contradiction to McVeigh’s own statements.
OKC being on the anniversary of Waco and Lexington and Concord is a bit suspicious, don’t you think?
Joe Stack (IRS plane crasher) sums up his manifesto with this, a popular Karl Marx quote and a stab at Capitalism...
The communist creed:
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
The capitalist creed:
From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.

Jayna’s book is excellent, I read it years ago and was quite impressed with her investigation.
I have her book, and have heard her interviewed.
It is a very compelling read, and very frustrating when you see the evidence that was misplaced, somehow just disappeared, or was purposely ignored. She was on the story within minutes of the bombing, and she has eyewitness testimonies from 20+ people, unrelated to each other, that relay the same information with regard to John Doe #2 (remember him?)down to the clothes he was wearing and the tattoo on his hand, the brown Chevy truck, and various other details the feds decided didn’t fit the “angry white right wing extremist” template they had constructed. These were people she talked to immediately—that also later gave statements to the feds. She had video testimony that she held on to until she found someone she thought she could trust in the FBI. She was left disappointed.
I think I threw the book in disgust a few times while reading. It is one of those books where you are so infuriated at the inaction of the people who are supposed to be piecing together the total picture to find the truth, but because they have decided that everything should go in one little box, anything else—no matter how compelling or startling— is disregarded.
She has brought this to the attention of congresscritters, and at one point had Congressman Dana Rohrabacher very interested in her investigation, and she was going to DC to testify before congress, IIRC. As I recall, that fell through as well, and she was left, yet again, to wonder why.
It is also very interesting that the key suspect in her book turned up working at Boston Logan airport prior to 9-11 and kept talking about how he would be blamed if something awful happened in the US and was seeing a therapist due to his levels of anxiety over this possible scenario.
Hmmmm, I think maybe I should read it again, while I still have low blood pressure.
I think if the Muzzies did this they’d be claiming credit.
The whole purpose is to terrorize.
They can’t terrorize if nobody knows they did it.
TWA Flight 800
are all characterized by two significant similarities:
The “official” investigations were all proven to have significant faults, some openly admitted, and
key members of the Clinton administration were involved with the “investigations” almost from the beginning.
Of the three, my opinion is that TWA Flight 800 is the most damningly compromised, although the Waco “investigation” also reeks to high Heaven.
Pinging Jayna, if you’re still FReeping.
Whether one believes this Arab tie-in account or not... the other obvious reason McVeigh would have blown up up the OKC Fed Building was in direct retaliation for the outrageous actions of the U.S. Government in Waco - not born from a generalized hatred of the government by right wingers. After all it was done on the Waco anniversary... And McVeigh - if he is to be believed said as much... A no brainer to me...
