JAYNA DAVIS: Report No. 1 - OU SUICIDE BOMBING CASE
As FReepers are probably aware, Jayna Davis, indefatigable reporter and author of THE THIRD TERRORIST, is on the case of the OU suicide bomber. A local FReeper is giving her assistance. Here are some of the highlights of our discussion a short time ago:
1 - she has spoken to the feed store owner, Justin Ellison . . . Joel Hinrichs III exhibited strange behavior while in the feed store trying to buy ammonium nitrate . . . the store owner asked why he wanted it, and Hinrichs turned away and started mumbling to himself
2 - Hinrichs was dressed in a photographer's vest that was stuffed . . . a wire was noticed sticking out of it
3 - a plain clothes officer was in the store at the time and witnessed what happened . . . Jayna is not clear who got it, but someone got the plate number to track the guy
4 - they did a background check and he came out clean . . . Jayna reminds us that he was a "lily white," just like McVeigh and Nichols
5 - Norman PD could not confirm much for Jayna because this has gone up the food chain . . . they did answer a few questions about procedure, however . . . this would have gone to a special ops task force . . . but what about the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF)? . . . Norman, Oklahoma has no budget for an officer or a JTTF office! . . . Jayna was stunned . . . the area around OKC is on the front line . . . Norman was the home of the former chief pilot of Osama bin Laden . . . Moussaoui got his flight training there . . . Atta and Alshehhi visited the Airman Flight School in Norman . . .Minepta's mosque is there . . . the VP recruiter for the overseas Al-Fatah network was in Norman
6 - the police in Norman did their job after the report of the feed store incident . . . they knew it was Hinrichs right away after the bombing - they knew it before DNA tests . . . Jayna wonders if their quick action prevented a major casualty count . . . Jayna wonders if they possible had done a "knock and talk" on him before the event to shake him up
7 - a local reporter who verbally attacked Jayna before is at it again . . . the reporter is kissing up and apologizing to the local Muslim community
8 - a security guard at the stadium would not give Jayna info about whether Hinrichs tried to get in with the backpack at halftime . . . apparently, that may be the time when some of the crowd leaves the stadium and comes back with alchohol - so the guards look for that . . . Jayna thinks that, had he planned it better, there was a possibility that he could have gotten in with the crowd at the beginning of the game
9 - officials are denying that there was something else that did not detonate . . . there are differing stories in the news
10 - how is this for quick action and approval? . . . OU is erecting concrete barriers at the stadium to prevent a truck bombing
11 - Jayna says thanks to all the FReepers . . . YOU GUYS ARE GREAT
See post #240 on this thread. Useful Fact File type posting. (o:
AMAZING STUFF again, LR. Thanks a lot for this info. Am adding it to the kist of links (I have already added the Cliff Notes version).
Thanks...this post is realy useful, cgk.
Bookmarking this list of threads. (I was out of pocket/media range for four days and am just now catching up on the event. THANK YOU for posting all these in one place.)
I mentioned this to my mom last night (Texas) and she told me about the NYC threat possibility but she hadn't even HEARD about this OU incident. Why is this astounding story being downplayed and ignored by 99.9% of the media (while, as another poster pointed out, Nick/Jessica is center stage)?
Thank God for FR (I need to go bump up my monthly donations). It's the dogged perseverance of amateur sleuths and the unrelenting search for truth (thanks, Jayna) that keep these things from being swept under the rug while the easy-to-distract sheeple go off to be entertained elsewhere.
I can't keep up either. There is so much happening. I've often wondered how simple and peaceful life would be if I were one of the stupid and uninformed, which is a large part of the nation.
Very welcome! And thank you for the links you collected. I have them saved :)
I hate to say it, but concrete barriers should have been up around the stadium 9/12/01
I am still amazed that any vehicle can pull right up next to an airline terminal at the curb. One terminal taken down puts all air traffic on hold and forces several airlines in bankruptcy.

So, my post #18 above here in this thread might have some validity.

You're kind, cgk. Another update will follow later tonight. Liberty Rocks has sent some great consolidated info.
Thank you for keeping me on the OKC ping list.
