Posted on 05/03/2005 11:24:56 PM PDT by Crackingham
After a decade of silence, Terry L. Nichols, who was convicted in the Oklahoma City bombings, has accused a third man of being an accomplice who provided some of the explosives used to kill 168 people at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building 10 years ago. Nichols, in a letter written from his cell at the Supermax prison in Colorado, said Arkansas gun collector Roger Moore donated so-called binary explosives, made up of two components, to bomber Timothy J. McVeigh that were used in Oklahoma City, as well as additional bomb components that recently were found in Nichols' former home in Kansas.
The claim that a third man in addition to McVeigh and Nichols was involved in the plot comes as a California congressman has begun pressing for answers to lingering questions about what, until Sept. 11, 2001, had been the worst case of domestic terrorism in the United States.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, chairman of the investigative arm of the House Committee on International Relations, has been collecting new evidence in the bombing and said he would announce soon whether to open formal hearings into the April 19, 1995, tragedy. He believes Nichols' knowledge about other potential conspirators is central to his investigation, especially since the components found in March in a crawl space below Nichols' former home remained undetected for nearly a decade. The congressman said it was important to determine whether others were involved beyond Nichols and McVeigh, two Army pals who became antigovernment zealots.
"That this mass murder of Americans was accomplished by two disgruntled veterans acting alone seems to be the conclusion reached by those in authority," Rohrabacher said recently on the House floor, referring to the FBI's investigation of the bombing.
"However," Rohrabacher said, "there are some unsettling loose ends and unanswered questions."

What's Terry Nicholls got against 007?
Roger Moore, wasn't he the guy suspected of being an FBI informant?
My guess is that Moore and Nichols both will be dead if the government decide to reopen this case. I hope they do.
This is Roger E. Moore, the Arkansas gun dealer that testified under the alias Robert Miller.
The formal response was they were there for an excercise but there is no documented exercise on that day at that building?
Why was there a bomb squad truck parked there that day?
The formal response was they stopped for coffee ?
What about the arab on the tapes walking through the building with McVey ?
Does Moore look like the composite sketch of John Doe #2 (if I recall the aliases and pictures correctly?).
Klintoon didn't want the investigation to go further. He had what he wanted in Nichols and McVeigh -- a finger to point at the Michigan Militia, and beyond them at Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich.
I remeber that, I wasn't sure about the informant. Guess that will give me something to research tomorrow.
I still wonder who that leg belonged to. Why hasn't Nichols answered that question? Has anyone asked him that question?
The tapes have not been released to the public, even though the trials are over and the FBI says its investigation is closed.
Why haven't the tapes been released? There is no excuse. What is the government trying to hide? This is why I don't trust them on this case. I bet that the tapes turn out to be "missing," "lost," or "misplaced."
My guess is Moore sold them legal stuff and that they took it and used it for illegal purposes.
Clinton would have been a one term president if not for Oklahoma City. It was perfect for him.
What possoble benefit to Michols would fessing up be? McVeigh went silently I suspect Nichols will remain so. I have no clue at all regarding their guilt or innocense or that of anyone else. As with all the mystereous airliner downings in the late 90's this too is a mystery that will remain unsolved, but which leaves nothing but questions in the minds of most folks.
Did Clinton order Security changes for the nation?
Had Clinton looked at the big picture instead of hiding under his desk, maybe the Cole and 9-11 would have never happened. Not taking out Usama when the opportunity arose is and always will be unforgivable.
I think this would be more intriuging if he was asking Jayna Davis to interview him about secrets regarding the bombing
