Question about the OKC bombing and the latest Al Qaeda guy caught at O Hare.

Question about the OKC bombing and the latest Al Qaeda guy caught at O’Hare.

Can someone post a side-by-side comparison of the “Arab” John Doe sketch from the OKC bombing and the sketch released today of the Al Qaeda guy nabbed at O’Hare, please.

It may be just me but at a glance they look similar.

U.S. authorities said June 10, 2002 that they had captured a suspected American al Qaeda operative carrying out reconnaissance for an attack on the United States with a radioactive 'dirty bomb.' Abdullah al Muhajir, born in New York as Jose Padilla, was detained by the FBI in Chicago on May 8, when he arrived from Pakistan. (Reuters)

Thanks for the fast response.

It just hit me when FOXNews flashed up a photo of this slime ball and I remembered the OKC mystery man.

Lips, nose (area just under nose), eyes and eyebrows, ears and the neck and chin line.

Hair was cut when he was in Pakistan but one could imagine him with a full head of slicked back hair as he appears in the OKC pic.

Hmmm…

I bet they can trace his activitites at the time of OKC bomb if they want to. Even if the FBI skank from Minnesota cant do a search on her PC.

Hmmm, more than interesting- down right scary. But you see- our media already had their template for OKC- it was "right wingers" influenced by Newt and Rush. Hey- evidence that Muslims may have been involved? Inconvenient- at best- and since it is ignored- not really true. Besides- million dollar contracts have to be saved and Beltway marriages, business relationships, and parasitical relationships have to be maintained.

Here's what Jose Padillo was doing in the 90's according to AP.
In Florida, he was convicted in 1991 in Sunrise on charges of aggravated assault and discharging a firearm, court records show. Padilla, who identified himself as Catholic when he was booked on those charges, served one year of supervised release, until Aug. 4, 1993. A Justice official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Padilla converted to Islam after his 1993 release.

Police said Padilla - who has "Jose" tattooed on his right arm - brandished a .38 revolver at another driver during a traffic encounter. When the other driver followed him to a gas station, Padilla fired one shot from his vehicle at the other car. No one was hurt. Police traced his license tag and arrested Padilla at home, where they found him with the handgun in his waistband.

While in the Broward County jail, Padilla was accused of battery on a jail officer and resisting without violence in January 1992. He pleaded guilty and spent 10 months behind bars.

Court records also show Padilla with speeding convictions in 1993 and 1997, and his driver's license was suspended in 1996. Padilla also completed a traffic law substance-abuse course in 1992, but it was unclear whether that stemmed from an arrest.

Very, very good catch. The only major difference is the chin.

But didn't one of the people who had actually seen JD2 mention having heard him say a few words, and that he had a foreign - but not Hispanic - accent? (I may be wrong on this.) Not that this rules him out, in any case. To a person from OK, the accent of a Puerto Rican New Yorker would sound very foreign. It would also not sound very Hispanic, because to folks in OK, Hispanic probably means Mexican. But there's a big difference between the accent of somebody from Guadalajara and that of somebody who grew up in a Spanish-speaking household in East Harlem or the Bronx.

OK. I found where he did time '85-88'. Then again in 1992 for assault on police officer. Got 10 months. So looks like he is "eligible" for involvement in OKC.

A Spanish speaking New Yorker would sound a bit different than someone who grew up south of the border.

If this turned out to be the case my reward would come the moment the lame stream media had no choice but to cover this because the ground swell was too great and then more and more people began pointing a critical finger at Komrade Klintoon and his ilk especially Sasquatch and the 90’s DOJ.

At some point even the big three and CNNMSNBC etc… could not hide it.

When was our guy caught at O’Hare in jail? If he was in jail at the time of the OKC bombing, then I guess all we have is a strange coincidence...

The guy arrested is 31 years old, which would make him 24 in 1995...and the 1995 JD2 image looks like someone in his mid-30s. My $0.02, your mileage may vary, objects in mirror are close then they appear.
