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?)

So it was his choice to have a swift execution.
...Ask and you shall receive...
(Should have done this in #19:)
I've already offered to post here as much -- or as little -- of the 7 pages as Jayna feels appropriate. OTOH, It doesn't make sense for her to expose more of her 'game plan' than necessary at this time...
Patience, please, and, everyone
You know, I didn't know Jayna Davis lived in Yukon too. Just goes to show, us Millers are good people =^). I also didn't realize you were an LEO. This whole thing must be especially frustrating for you, knowing that it was handled very innappropriately.
I have a special hatred for BillyBob and Reno for refusing to reveal the truth about what really happened.
I for one am glad he did. There are certainly an awful lot of terrorists named Muhammed running around, and it helps to be able to further identify them as much as possible.
I was going to add something like that onto my statement but I figured I would be perceived to be a conspiracy type.
No doubt in my mind the FBI wanted to stop the investigation so only the white anarchists would appear to be involved.
I felt that was from day one because usually Law Enforcement says the investigation will continue until any or all participants are brought to justice.
They immediately said we got them and it's all over. That smells. - tom
O-oh--the FBI altered witness statements?!
W-why, Miss Piggy and I just spit our martinis all over the monitor.
Return with us now to those notorious days of yesteryear--
Hillary Clinton hired Craig Livingstone to acquire 1,000 files from the FBI on Clinton enemies.
Craig put the Honda keys in Vince Foster's pants.
FBI's Horiuchi put the lead in Dravidians.
And there were no Islamo terrorists blowing up the Murrah Building.
And there were no terrorists blowing up Flight 800.
And a white guy named Richard Jewell was framed for the still unsolved Olympic Park bombing.
And the Islamofascists who did WTC I were tied to the Khobar Towers perps--but the FBI failed to question them.
From Mogadishu 93 to the Embassy bombings in 98 to the Cole in 2000, the Islamobombers have been busy.
And nibbling the cookie trail they leave behind has been the FBI Special Obfuscation Unit.
O'Neill was smeared and driven from the FBI when he warned of Islamobombers--to die in the WTC at their hands.
Now we have a McCauley (miraculous namesake of the fed hero "trapped in the Murrah elevator") to jump into real investigative work with hipwaders coated in bullcrap.
The perversion of the nation's foreign and domestic intelligence services by traitorrapist42 is a gift that keeps on giving.
But the Force is with Jayna--the force of truth, justice and the American Way, that is.
You go, girl.
"No doubt in my mind that those giving orders to the FBI wanted to stop the investigation ..."
However, had those in power followed the ME connection to its conclusion, and it was found to be true, and our government had taken the proper responsive action, then the argument could be made that the twin towers would still be standing, the pentegon would not have had to be rebuilt, and close to 3000 of our fellow citizens would still be with us today. We can not say for sure, but we will never know because the ME connection was buried.
All Americans, IMO, owe Jayna Davis a debt of gratitude for her tireless determination to keep pursuing this investigation, at her expense, (both financially, and physically)when her own government was doing all that it could to ignore her and obstruct her. The expense on her financially and physically has, without a doubt been great. Having worked in LE, I can only assume the risks she has taken, and the possible threats that have been leveled at her. Let us all keep her in our prayers, for God's gracious had of comfort, strength and protection over her. God Bless her and those like her that continue to try and shine the light of truth on this horrific tragedy. Again, I was there, I saw the dead, dying and injured. I stood in the daycare playground after the bombing. I saw the horror and pain and destruction. We cannot rest until we see this through to the end and those that are responsible pay the price for their involvement.

Through her attorney, Tim McCoy, former KFOR reporter Davis disavowed some of the bombing conspiracy theories that have been reported.
"She also wants to make it perfectly clear that after her two-year exhaustive investigation, she has turned up no credible evidence that supports the theory that the federal government had sufficient prior warnings to prevent the bombing," McCoy said.
Judge Refuses To Bar Subpoena Of Ex-Reporter
Ed Godfrey 09/12/1997
A judge on Thursday refused to quash a subpoena requiring former KFOR-TV reporter Jayna Davis to testify before the Oklahoma County grand jury investigating the Murrah bombing.
In June 1995, Davis aired a report linking an Iraqi then living in Oklahoma City with the bombing. Al-Hussaini Hussain sued KFOR in Oklahoma County District Court, saying the station fingered him as John Doe 2.
Hussain was not named, but attorneys claimed he was identified through "innuendo." Hussain dropped the lawsuit in April.
Davis was subpoenaed to testify today . On Thursday, her attorney, A. Daniel Woska, asked Oklahoma County District Judge Bill Burkett to prevent her from appearing, based on "newsman's privilege" under state law.
Lawmaker Plans 85 to 90 More Witnesses for Grand Jury - Television Reporter Refuses to Name Sources in Bombing - Investigation
Diana Baldwin, Judy Kuhlman
State Rep. Charles Key said Monday he has the names of between 85 to 90 more people he wants to testify before the Oklahoma County grand jury investigating a larger conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing.
Key, R-Oklahoma City, and his Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee made public 24 names, the first of a three-part list he plans to turn over to the grand jury.
The grand jury has heard from 65 witnesses since the panel convened June 30.
Key presented the grand jury with the names of 39 potential witnesses when he testified July 15. So far, the grand jury has heard from all but nine of those.
On Monday, former KFOR television reporter Jayna Davis and district attorney's investigator Larry Dellinger made return appearances before the grand jury, which is scheduled to hear witnesses throughout the week. They resume work at 9 a.m. today.
Davis, testifying for the third time, said she has refused to name her sources.
She said she presented "hundreds of documents" to District Attorney Bob Macy that detailed her "two-year investigation into the bombing and the identity of" John Doe 2.
Davis said her sources are witnesses who said they saw and talked to John Doe 2.
She spent more than four hours with the jury Monday.
isn't giving false testimony to a grand jury a felony?
what is the statute of limitations on this?
The feds sure are tricksters aren't they? Thanks for the additional details Nancie Drew.
From the Grand Jury:
Some of the other claims regarding John Doe II were:
The so-called Middle Eastern connection which, based on the evidence available, we believe simply did not exist.
