Controversy Over Alleged Islamic Ties to Oklahoma City Bombing Continues (Jayna Davis strikes back!)
(Editor's Note: The following is a response by journalist Jayna Davis to certain assertions by Cate McCauley, an investigator appointed by the U.S. District Court to assist with the appeal of convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, which were published in the October 30 article 'McVeigh Defense Investigator questions Senator's Probe.')
"Twenty-two witness affidavits supported by 25-hundred pages of corroborative evidence is hardly a 'very small package of information,' (about the Oklahoma City bombing). McCauley is wholly unqualified to criticize the complexities of the investigative dossier because she has never reviewed it.
I interviewed nearly 80 potential witnesses, but I deemed only two-dozen to be credible because the veracity of their testimonies could be independently corroborated and their stories did not conflict with the government's timeline of the movements of the Oklahoma City bombers. All confidently identified eight specific Middle Eastern men, the majority of whom are former Iraqi soldiers, collaborating with McVeigh and Nichols during various stages of the bombing plot. They have signed sworn affidavits confirming their testimonies.
After a thorough vetting process, this investigation has earned the ringing endorsement of the lead impeachment prosecutor David Schippers, former Deputy Director of the State Department's Office of Counter Terrorism Larry Johnson, former Director of the CIA James Woolsey, former Chief of Human Intelligence for the Defense Intelligence Agency Colonel Patrick Lang, the Director of Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare Yossef Bodansky, and the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, including senior editorial writer Micah Morrison.
Former CIA analyst and Deputy Director of Counter Terrorism for the Department of State, Larry Johnson, has determined that 'without a doubt, there is a definite Middle Eastern tie to the Oklahoma City bombing.' As a Fox News consultant, he has expressed publicly his concern that the Islamic terrorist network, which assisted McVeigh and Nichols, is still operational and poses a threat to national security.
In addition to comprehensive coverage published by the Indianapolis Star and the LA Weekly, I have been invited as a guest to discuss this investigation with Lou Dobb's of CNN, Fox News (Bill O'Reilly, John Gibson, Greta Van Susteren, and John Scott). The credibility of my work has also been recognized by nationally syndicated radio show host Glenn Beck as well as numerous talk radio programs in several major markets (New York, San Fransico, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Miami, Nashville, and Richmond.)
(Regarding the civil suit brought against Davis over certain information concerning her investigation,) The court ruling in that lawsuit established I acted responsibly. When I resigned my position at KFOR, I was legally responsible to protect the recorded statements of the confidential witnesses. (Oklahoma State District Court) Judge (Brian) Dixon upheld my journalistic First Amendment pledge to the confidential witnesses to keep their statements sealed until such time that 'law enforcement officials launched a legitimate investigation into the identity of those involved in the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Building.'"

You and about 80 million others of us...
Don't fret over that. Terry Nichols is still alive. - Tom
It's the same reason that Williams/Mohammed is likely to make a new record for time between arrest and execution. And Malvo will come close to that record if his claim to being a juvenile falls apart.
No tin hat explanation is required. It's just that prosecutors who should be most concerned about making sure the entire group of conspirators have been caught instead are most concerned to show that the case is closed and the criminals punished. However, this is war, and in war, you don't give prisoners miranda rights and then execute them; instead you extract, without torture, all the information you can from them and then hold them indefinitely.
Neither Malvo nor Williams/Mohammed should be treated as it they were Americans. Malvo is certainly not American. Williams/Mohammed was American, but then became a national of Antigua through fraud. It is a big mistake to recognize dual citizenship; instead we should accept Williams/Mohammed's desire to be a citizen of another country and treat him accordingly.
(Because Williams/Mohammed got his Antigua passport and other Antigua papers through fraud, Antigua properly is not considering him their citizen. I feel he should be treated as a stateless person. This in itself is no crime, but certainly does not entire one to bill of rights protections. At a minimum, if we are going to treat these fellows as criminals, we should offer them life imprisonment in return for naming names.)
Totally out of the question. islam is the Religion of Peace (TM).
It must be the Mossad.
(Note to self: now why didn't you think of that?)
