Skip to comments.CBS News Washington Bureau Chief Was an FBI Snitch

The Center for Public Integrity is reporting that an unnamed former ABC News journalist was an FBI informant during and after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, passing along tips and revealing a source. We know who it is...
(Excerpt) Read more at gawker.com ...
‘According to an FBI memo obtained by the Center, a nameless ABC News journalist contacted the FBI on the evening of the bombing to pass along information he had heard from a source: That the “bombing was sponsored by the Iraqi Special Services” and that two more attacks in Los Angeles and Houston were imminent.
The Center didn’t name the informant, but we’ve learned he was Christopher Isham, who is now a vice president at CBS News and the network’s Washington bureau chief.”
I have a big problem with Gawker, because there is a frame overlaying the main story, called “latest”. Perhaps this just happens in Firefox, but the thing almost totally blocks the story. It is static, while the story scrolls, and even changing the scale of the page leaves it blocking.
It has no close ‘x’ on it, and really annoys.
See-BS bio of Isham:
There pretty certainly was a Muslim connection.
Too bad the FBI wasn’t listening, because they were too busy shilling for Clintbilly, who won re-election largely by propagandizing with lies about OKC.
John Doe # 2, aka Jose Padilla, certainly was a big flaming clue, but they swept him right under the rug.
Wow, buccy — are you ever wrong!
John Doe #2 was an Iraqi Republican Guard Officer named Al-husseini. Jayna Davis tracked him down and interviewed him, where he broke down and admitted his role in OKC.
Me, too. Won’t go there anymore.
I missed that one. I’ll have to read up on it.
Wow! Very freaky if true
Shhhh...one the Looney Left’s theories (Media Matters, Soros, Daily KO’s, FireDogLake, DNC, Howard Dean and the radicals like Van Jones, Ayers, et al) ALWAYS PIN THE OKC BOMBING ON THE RIGHT.
Another blown Liberal template.
I just read “The Third terrorist.” An incredible tale of dogged journalism, and it will outrage you. You will be left with no doubt, and then it will quadruple the evidence to reinforce your belief. Many of the few negative reviews on Amazon are from obvious Muslim terrorist sympathizers.
It still left the question unanswered: why did the FBI refuse to follow the obvious leads to bring the likely perpetrators to justice.
McVeigh wasn’t a patsy, but he was a small-fry.
I wish everyone would read that book. I live in Oklahoma, have friends and relatives who were close enough to the bombing to have their offices destroyed and still refuse to even look at the book. It’s kind of strange, like they are in denial that it ever happened. I just don’t understand this, could it be some sort of PTSD?
Jose Padilla looks nothing like him, and in any case would have been much younger than the man in the drawing at the time of the bombing. There was abundant documentation of the presence of an Iraqi who looked like this, however.
VVVVVEEERRRRYYYYY IIINNNTTEEERREEESSSTTIIINNGG!! Especially since Richard Clarke, Clintoon’s Terror Expert, let drop in his book that “the bomb at OKC was much more powerful than that at the Khobar Towers which was a professional job and that McVeigh and his gopher were not capable of getting a firecracker to go off with a lighted match!” Dont believe me, just read Clarke’s own words in his book! This supports all we were sure of way back then and Clintoon sold America down the river! Clintoon knew it was the Iraq’s within nanoseconds of the Atrocity!! Was Clintoon being Blackmailed to LIE?????
This was the same FBI and the the same Janet Reno who murdered children at Waco two years earlier.
Interestingly some of the msm are pidking up this story. Probably hoping to screw ABC.
Never mind they were foaming at the mouth at the time blaming Militias, Rush Limbaugh etc etc.
Apparently Bush had more than one reason to take Sad-Damn out.
In a similar vein the night of TWA 800 Wolf Blitzer told Bernie Shaw, at about 8:30, that Clinton would speak to the nation at 10PM.Not usual for an an air crash, even one so terrible as 800. Of course no statement happened.
