From Staff Reports
NORMAN -- An explosion near the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Memorial Stadium killed one person Saturday, OU officials said.

The explosion happened at the courtyard near the George Lynn Cross Hall, Botany-Microbiology Building on OU's campus, which is west of the stadium, according to Sgt. Gary Robinson of the University police department.

The explosion happened during the second quarter of Oklahoma's game against Kansas State.

After the explosion, police set up a perimeter of several blocks and made fans exit the stadium to the east.

Earlier in this thread or the other it was reported he attempted to enter the stadium but they wanted to search his backpack. I have heard the same thing. Looks like he had plans to drop the backpack and then take off to be detonated under the stadium where people are milling around. I am sure they have cameras around the stadium or at least I hope they do.

It has been odd the way they keep saying it might have been an accident which fits in with your theory.

Didn't want this to go away because I think it is very important that the truth come out whatever is the truth. The spin we got right away raised my suspicions as well as those of others and why the media along with other people have started digging. The Boren spin didn't work the first night and is still not working.

I figured it was the Fall of 2002 from his age.

I thought someone would pick up on that -- my jaw dropped on that one.

If this is true, they won't be able to keep it a secret for very long.

You're doin' good, Mom... keep it up.

This certainly smells like a jihadi bombing, but the most startling aspect of it is the glaring MEDIA BLACKOUT.

Au contraire! You two ladies have done some very important work here today. Keep this story alive.

I wonder how many of the thousands who read here will be just a bit more vigilant at this Saturday's college football games?

You know that at this point the MSM is going to be very reluctant to cover this story at all. How would they explain how little they covered it in the first place. To cover it now would get many people asking..."How come I never heard about this?"

How do you find out how many "hits" a thread has had? I forget.

OK.

Keep ALL of this SPECIFIC REPORT in your "file of things that the press will never mention again because it isn't politically correct"

See, it sounds like the roommate (who was distinctive enough known by a near-by Muslim!) fled the area immediately...

Was stupid enough to leave bomb parts (active explosives!) IN the room

Was smart enough to con his roommate into "dropping off" the backpack INSIDE the stadium

Was stupid enough to pick a dumb/ignorant/impossible-to-train/known-by-the-university-president-to-have-personalproblems "engineering student" that couldn't follow instructions/didn't follow instructions/wanted to find out what was in the backpack/wanted to see what kind of bomb his roommate built. (Then again, he just might have been a typical engineering student ......)

The only place I know of is to look back in the "title" listing of the first message summary of FIRST time the thread was posted.

Of course, 4000 odd posts ago, you can't find that listing.

Douglas Hageman (sp)....he talks with couple of police before the Feds took over...

Heinrichs has ties with roommates that have ties to ME terrorism....police say there is possibility of Middle Easterners in this area...Pakistani...lived with 1 or 2 students from Pakistan...

Enough evidence will be collected to find out this was jihadi related and the some ME men will be involved...BUT, the police office said that he isn't supposed to say anything...

The police officer said that after it happened...he watched the crowd just nonchalantly walking out of the stadium...not believing that his happened and no one seems concerned... A lot of explosive material out of bombers apartment, and a lot of jihadist literature....explosives similar to the London bombers and Richard Reid.... The fact that a college student in USA strapped bombs to body to commit suicide??? NOT LIKELY.... Okay ya'll that is shorthand notes of the reports that the talk show host had re: Oklahoma Suicide... Said that the police that were giving this information, did it to the Douglas guy before the Feds came...and shut them up...and they won't talk now... I doubt if there is much here that ya'll haven't probably already heard/read....but this is all I have heard today..

We're trying to spin this as long as possible ...
