I've often wondered why the Clinton administration ignored the second bomber. They just told the witnesses they didn't really see what they saw. Instead, they blamed Rush Limbaugh and citizen militias before they hurried as fast as they could to kill McVeigh. The videos of the event still haven't been released years later.
It would be nice if this went viral. I'd like to see the entire event re-questioned.
The muslims were involved, that’s why. Have to have evil white men the terrorists so they can tell us over and over again that it just isn’t muslims who are terrorists.....
This was hid because they are infiltrating the muslims in all remote areas of the US and didn’t want a backlash....Repeat, muslims are good people...muslims are g....
Once they had McVeigh, the Clinton administration had what it wanted -- a white guy with militia ties. This allowed them to smear the conservative right, Rush Limbaugh, et al, with implied blame for the bombing.
And, politically, it worked. Clinton recovered from "irrelevancy" to being back in control.
A Middle East connection, however, would've been a totally different kettle of fish -- one they didn't want to deal with. It would've required taking punitive action...and Clinton didn't want to do that.
The same kind of thinking probably applied to TW 800 -- a "spark in the center gas tank" was much more convenient than a bomb or missile.
...and bulldoze the site.
The meme is still with us that all those 'right winged bitter clingers' are either A: neonazis, B:domestic terrorists, C: racists, or D: All of the above...
This was specifically fostered by the Clintons and their lackeys (like the SPLC) to take the heat of the administration for the massacre at Waco and the incident at Ruby Ridge--and to deflect public scrutiny from the growing problem of Muslim terrorism in the US, which might make yet another Democrat run White House look like the bunch of foreign policy incompetents they were.
If an Iraqi national was involved who could be linked back to the Hussein regime, the Oklahoma City bombing may have been a secret pretext for Bush (43) invading Iraq. LBJ quietly assembled an invasion force in 1964 to attack Cuba, partly because he was convinced Castro had a hand in the JFK assassination. Instead these forces were sent into the Dominican Republic in 1965 to put down a rebellion.
