Skip to comments.CBS News Washington Bureau Chief Was an FBI Snitch
Posted on 04/05/2011 2:11:18 PM PDT by OL Hickory
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.
The FBI was searching for this man for about two days, until Billy Bob Clinton mounted a press blitz to shift attention (and blame) to some unknown branch of “white Christian militia” malcontents, with whom McVeigh was alleged (by Clinton and his henchmen) to be affiliated and by whom he was alleged to have been motivated and poisoned by anti-government weirdness.
Presto-changeo!! The dark haired man of swarthy complexion was air-brushed into non-existence, as firm evidence of a Muslim terrorist connection would have compelled our President to take corrective/retaliatory action in defense of vital security interests of the U.S.A., which Clinton successfully avoided to for eight long years.
1995, Oklahoma City
1996, TWA 800
1996, Khobar Towers
1998, The African US embassy bombings
But he sure had no issue with killing American children in Waco and Serbian Christians in Yugoslavia.
2000, USS Cole
Scratch these two off the list:
1995, Oklahoma City
1996, TWA 800
Also add 1993 WTC bombings...
Don't forget Lon Horiuchi's shot at Ruby Ridge.
Clinton needed it to be a “right wing extremist” operation not a Islamist operation. He had been playing footsies with the Muslims and did nothing about the first world trade center bombing. He wanted to use the incident to win an election against the “extremist” right.
He did not want to take out whatever leader (Saddam) was involved. It was obvious to me at the time that they were directing the investigation to re-elect Clinton and not to find the bad guys and protect Americans. Had he not be such Muslim loving scum, we may not have suffered the world trade center attack.
It is pitiful when we have a government and media so power hungry and corrupt.
That was in 1992, on GHWB's watch.
“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 “
I went to Gawkers website with firefox had to problems!
I read that too. Why he hasn’t been arrested, I don’t know.
Yes. He had worked at Boston’s Logan Airport for quite some time.
I’m am furious. The FBI said the case was closed. Just shaking my head again.
“Was Clintoon being Blackmailed to LIE?????”
You say that like you are surprised.
Given Clinton’s peccadilloes...the answer is yes...
Hardly. Clinton did what he did best and that was LIE. The reason he lied was simple. His political instinct told him that he would be eaten alive if the public found out that an Iraqi terrorist cell in OKC killed so many.
Clinton's solution was simple: IT NEVER HAPPENED. He tried to pin the deed on Rush Limbaugh and the right wing McVeigh and Nichols and was quite successful.
Bill Clinton's lies on the terrorist attack in OKC and the other terrorist attacks on America were hidden and buried in misinformation but in doing that, Clinton set up 9/11.
Now you have some insight on why Jamie Gorelick was so involved with the 9/11 Commission. The truth had to be buried and Gorelick, just like Clinton, would have hung for their lies about OKC and the other terrorist attacks that killed innocent Americans. Instead, Gorelick and Clinton continue to destroy our country and they laugh at how stupid Americans really are.
I tried to explain to Jayna Davis that she was fighting the President of the United States but she never accepted the obvious explanation. Members of the press with their pack journalism start to believe the BS they write even though the truth is obviously different than the "accepted" version.
I don’t wonder. What I wonder is why they do it so often. And they do.
“John Doe # 2, aka Jose Padilla...”
This is one of those things that makes me think I am living in the Twilight Zone. It is totally obvious that Padilla is John Doe #2 and yet it is ignored it this bizzarro world!
While I have a lot of questions about the McVeigh conviction and the show trial, why would the Iraqi government go to such lenghts to blow up a courthouse in OKC? I mean, wouldn’t it make more sense for such an attack to take place in NYC, DC, Chicago, SF, or etc?
Either it had nothing to do with the Iraqis or there was a valid reason to attack that somewhat obscure courthouse on that day, if so then what’s the reason?
i believe it has something to the psychological effect of we can hit you in the dead center of your country and you cannot stop us.
i too am amazed that the truth is being suppressed, but soon it will come to light... just like the fact that gwb was right to go after the terrorist.
