Posted on 10/23/2001 12:17:44 PM PDT by OKCSubmariner
Some dismiss it as being akin to Elvis sightings, but a few top Defense officials think Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh was an Iraqi agent. The theory stems from a never-before-reported allegation that McVeigh had allegedly collected Iraqi telephone numbers. Why haven't we heard this before about the case of the executed McVeigh? Conspiracy theorists in the Pentagon think it's part of a coverup.
The news item is an excerpt from the US News & World Report column "Washington Whispers" dated 10/29/01 written by the editor PAUL BEDARD. The news excerpt is under the paragraph heading "McVeigh's ghost" in the column whose title is "Pentagon slows Clinton's bid for women in combat".
I spoke directly today by phone with Paul Bedard and he gave me permission to write that the top official at the Pentagon who is making the allegations about McVeigh connections to Iraq is the Assistant Secretary of Defense, Mr. Wolfowitz, the number two man at the Pentagon under the Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
Mr. Bedard also broke his information today at 6:20 am EST on the show "Fox and Friends".
Note that the news item refers to a coverup of the Iraqi connection to McVeigh and the OKC bombing suspected by Pentagon officials. The coverup referred to is a coverup by the FBI, DOJ, and Reno and Freeh.
Bedard's information is consistent with evidence uncovered that had McVeigh meeting with an Iraqi recruiter in Las Vegas a few months before the OKC bombing along with a suspected Hamas cell member from OKC. McVeigh was seen with the employee of the Hamas cell member, an Iraqi, Al Hussain Hussaini in OKC before and on the morning of the OKC bombing. Hussaini was seen speeding away in front of the Murrah building with another ME man in a late model brown Chevy truck, the subject of an FBI all points bulletin.
Hussaini served in Sadam Hussein's Republican Guard prior to the Gulf War and was brought to the US by Clinton along with around 4000 Iraqis after the gulf War. Some were relocated in OKC at two churches in OKC. This information was provided by me to KFORTV (Brad Edwards) in OKC in May 1995 when they were investigating Hussaini's role.
Former legal counsel for the impeachment proceedings and prominent DOJ attorney, David Schippers has said several times on Alex Jones and other radio broadcasts that Hussaini was a baggage handler at Boston's Logan airport at the time of the WTC attacks on 9/11/2001. Schippers expressed concern that the FBI should look into whether or not Hussaini could have helped breach security at the airport to help the hijacker pilots get on board or to plant box cutter knives.
Also it is believed Terry Nichols met with Bin Laden operatives of the Abu Sayef terror organization in the Phillipines months before the OKC bombing. Bin Laden and Sadam Hussein have worked closely with each other on terror projects for years. Wolfowitz and Admiral Woolsey (former CIA and FBI director) think Sadam Hussain and Bin Laden also worked together on the Pentagon and WTC attacks on 9/11/2001.
Vincent Cannistraro, former head of the CIA's ME counter terror operations, told the FBI in April 1995 that the OKC bombing was a Sadam Hussein operation where Sadam Hussein had paid seven Pakistanis to assist in the operation. Canistraro's source was the head of Saudi intelligence and the FBI interview with Cannistraro is described in McVeigh defense attorney Stephen Jones' book and David Hoffman's book. Three Pakistani men were arrested in OKC and Dallas in connection to the OKC bombing and then released. One of them Asad Sidiqy was a suspect in the first WTC bombing backed by Sadam Hussein in 1993. The FBI and Reno covered up the FBI 302 interview reports and arrests of these three Pakistanis.
Whose phone numbers did McViegh have??
DONT FLAME ME!
What purpose would the Clinton Justice Dept have in not making this connection back then...
I repeat dont flame me ......just asking..
"Also it is believed Terry Nichols met with Bin Laden operatives of the Abu Sayef terror organization in the Phillipines months before the OKC bombing. Bin Laden and Sadam Hussein have worked closely with each other on terror projects for years."
This is no time to suggest torture.
This is the time to send Terry Nichols to Turkey for a little chat.
But in light of the last 8 years, the events of Sept 11 and the continious stream of info about how many suspected terrorist, INS watch listees, et al have wandered into this country with the full blessing of our government.
This, somehow does not suprise me.
From the archives
The FBI and Reno covered up the FBI 302 interview reports and arrests of these three Pakistanis.
The most important unanswered question is WHY
We imported the enemy to our own country? This is outrageous!
Pogo: "We have seen the enemy and he is us". Never more true than after reading this post today.
Then he couldn't blame talk radio after the '94 election drubbing.
It's also very distracting to have to deal with terrorists while receiving "head-ups" from interns.
Is the date for an upcoming issue or is it a typo?? Just curious...
The answer seems to be twofold. (1) Pointing out Iraq's involvement would have required him to take leadership and perhaps a military response (such as we are seeing from Bush) which is more than just dropping bombs on aspirin factories. Clinton never displayed any talent or skill at such things.
(2) Blaming it on domestic terrorists, of course, gave him a great political opportunity to demonize things like "right-wing talk radio" and sufficient momentum to counter and neutralize what must have seemed to him a threatening political force at the time which had arisen in opposition to his efforts at socialism and citizen disarmament.
All in all, if there is any truth to the charge it would have been a very rational thing for Clinton to do. Honorable no, but rational yes.
If the Bush people have anything on the ball, they'll be digging into Middle Eastern connections with OKC and TWA-800 just as hard as they can.
Can you provide a link?
The BATF assault on the Branch Davidian compound was supposed to be a huge anti-gun commercial such that Clinton was going to be able to ban guns in America just as the English were banning guns in the UK. That raid went wrong, but there was a large motivational factor to pin the OKC bombing (on that anniversary the following year) on right-wing zealots rather than on foreign agents.
By pinning OKC on right wing groups, more support could be gained for gun-grabbing (hint: the anti-terrorism legislation was ALREADY drafted and submitted to Congress when the Murrah building fell).
On the other hand, blaming the OKC on foreign agents would have provided ammunition to pro-gun groups and furthered gun ownership (note: that very thing has now happened after WTC on 9/11).
So Clinton and his anti-gun cronies had a very large motivational factor going for them to point the finger at domestic, right-wing zealots rather than on foreign agents.
And who were the top Defense officials? Are those the guys who say that Elvis and JFK are still living in a secret rest home on the outskirts of DC? Inquiring minds want to know.
I believe that the date may reflect the date on the latest issue of the US News & World Report. I am not sure if the issue is at news stands yet but in the past I have seen magazines come out with a date later than when I have bought them.
If I choose to believe this, will I need to wear the dreaded "tin foil helmet"?
Gulf War vet (served in CONUS)
No one ever accused Clinton of being slow on the uptake. He immediately gave the orders to his minions to kill any word of a foreign involvement. A homegrown rightwing terrorist was a made to order target for the Clintons. It was not only less threatening to the public, but it made all the Clinton scandals seem irrelevant.
Our government LIES to us about it, executes a "lone nut"
covers up the lie, and the fact that OUR government relocated 4,000 of our enemies into OUR country???
This is TREASON
And we're supposed to TRUST Washington???
Donald Rumsfeld is gonna love this story.
