"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"
Why don't we ever get these names of these guys. It's always "A federal judge," or "a reporter?"
In a lot of instances, maybe we could help take the heat off someone, or apply heat to someone. Just tell us who it is.
Norman info from this link:
Perhaps the most important and purposely neglected "coincidence" concerning Moussaoui is his connection to convicted felon Melvin Lattimore, a convert to Islam who now goes by the name Majahid Abdulquaadir Menepta. The unwillingness of federal authorities to hold Lattimore/Menepta as a 9-11 suspect in the case is stunning. Equally stunning is the fact that he was never arrested as a suspect in the Oklahoma City bombing. Here are some key facts concerning Menepta tying him to the biggest terrorist events in U.S. history:
Menepta was a member of a militant mosque in St. Louis and is now a member of a radical mosque in Norman, where he says he saw Moussaoui on a daily basis. According to Oklahoma news accounts, Menepta and Moussaoui were roommates in Norman, while Moussaoui attended flight school.
When Menepta and Al-Attas returned to Norman on August 21, 2001, more than three weeks before 9-11, agents from the Oklahoma City FBI office knocked on their apartment door. According to the agents, several men fled the apartment and exited the building before the agents could react. Also, according to FBI documents, 9-11 hijacker Salem Al-Hazmi was seen in Meneptas Norman apartment in April 2001.
By nightfall, the APB for foreign terrorits dominate the evening news.
"Police were told by one witness that he saw at last two men in blue jumpsuits running away from a minivan outside the courthouse just before the blast. The witness told investigators the two men fled in a brown pickup," asserted NBC news correspondent Jim Cummins.
"This information is not a rumor," explained Oklahoma City's KWTV news anchor Jennifer Reynolds. "This was a radiogram, authority of the FBI, which was issued over radio channels to law enforcement authorities in central Oklahoma, and it was read aloud to law enforcement authorities."
The next day, the local CBS affiliate, KWTV, was among several media outlets trying to backtrack. Reporters statewide scrambled to correct the false spin generated from the FBI's declaration that Johnb Doe 2 had been located and cleared. They collectively conceded it wasn't time to "tear up" the suspect drawing just yet.
Will someone who is on this story please create a list of the top ten things we have learned about this bombing. East to grasp bullet points would be very helpful for everyone.
bump for later
On another thread was a post that JH III's roomate was a Pakistani who was active in a radical campus group and close to one of the leaders (named Cheeham?) The claim is that Cheeham (sp?) worked for a Tulsa security agency owned by Terry Lenzner (Clinton's very dirty P.I., a sorry thug bastard.)
Would be very, very interested in learning if this rumor is bogus or true. While I have my doubts (fog of war, and all that), if true it starts to weave a common thread through 15 years of OK's seediest history (and plenty of us still remember the Lum's.)
