OKLAHOMA CITY -- With the Sept. 11 anniversary upon us and President Bush talking about a "regime change" in Iraq, it's an apt time to look at two investigators who connect Baghdad to two notorious incidents of domestic terrorism. Jayna Davis, a former television reporter in Oklahoma City, believes an Iraqi cell was involved in the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building here. Middle East expert Laurie Mylroie links Iraq to the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, and has published a book on the subject.

Well well well. And to think that the Hitler Channel claims the Islamic Mid-Eastern terrorists were not involved in this endeavor

I am happy to see that the WSJ is picking this up.

I lived and worked only a few blocks away from the Denver courthouse where Judge Matsch presided over the trial.

It was very clear from certain things I observed and read that ever Judge Matsch did not (fully) believe the prosecution's version of events.

I think that the potus is using the wsj and part of the info campaign. I doubt that the average joe knows about these connections until now.

The WSJ, to which I subscribe, would have a LOT more credibility had they written this article, say, two years ago. As it is, they ignored most of it until many people were demanding "evidence" of Iraqi misdeeds before committing troops. Until now, they've swallowed the OKC gummit story pretty much hook, line, and sinker.

Sadly, this appears to be published on their op-ed page today, not in any of the news sections. So most people will just roll their eyes and say "Oh, more fruitcake right-wing rantings from The Usual Suspects on the WSJ's editorial page."

Exactly my point. The same stories and evidence, had 9/11 not occurred, would not have seen the light of day in the WSJ.

But 911 DID happen. How long will it take to boomerang back to clinton/reno.

I always was against killing Tim M because dead men dont talk.

He might have given us more info over time

Yes, I agree with that also. Used to be in the arguments against Fred25 (or whatever) and _Jim, the G-men.

Look, I'm glad things are moving this way. My point is that the WSJ has suspect motives, but the OKC stuff should come out. But another point is that we on the right have our media whores also--and WSJ has been one for the 20 years I have subscribed. You should have read their pathetic defense of Union Carbide when they killed over 3,000 people--more than died at the WTC--at Bhopol (spelling?). Mostly I agree with them, but sometimes they are over the top.

Yeah I saw that History Channel whitewash of Islam today. That muslim woman was bragging that it was "a white male" that bombed OKC. Looks like that white male had a lot of help from the Iraqis.

(And common sense says that the Clinton Administration knows who did it also and kept quiet about it to gain a political advantage over Republicans because of the nutty fringe group McVeigh was a part of can be linked to the right by liars and the sheeple won't know the difference.)

It's nice to know Edward Jay Epstein's thoughts on this matter. Epstein has long been one of the top disinfo experts in Amerika. A pretty good rule of thumb is to disbelieve anything he says. His writings on the JFK assassination are nearly as ridiculous as the writings of the Warren Commission.

Mr. Morrison's credibility, however, goes way back. Check out this article of his from '95. Who is David Edwards?

My best recollection of race-typing (affirmative action) by the Feds is that Arabs and Jews are white.

Ms. Davis's evidence was examined by Patrick Lang, a Middle East expert and former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency's human intelligence collection section. In a memo to Ms. Davis, Mr. Lang concluded that Mr. al-Hussaini likely is a member of Unit 999 of the Iraqi Military Intelligence Service, or Estikhabarat. He wrote that this unit is headquartered at Salman Pak southeast of Baghdad, and "deals with clandestine operations at home and abroad."

Thanks for the flag. Another possible Salman Pak connection.

Also the History Channel threw that comment in there while they were putting down Christianity for being backward to Islam and backward toward women (Ha!), but McVeigh didn't participate in the bombing for any Christian belief, he did it for the hatred of the jackbootedness of the Reno-Clintonized government agences.
