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.'"

William Burkett Named Corporation Commission General Counsel
OKLAHOMA CITY William R. Burkett, active in law in Oklahoma since 1950, has been named general counsel for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, effective Feb. 1(1999).
I was not close to any of the victims of the bombing or Police Officer Terry Yeakey, but I feel we all lost a great deal when they died.
I believe the same terrorist network that participated in the Oklahoma City bombing was responsible for the deaths on September 11 and I lost many people I feel very close to on that day.
My interest is the truth so to further the interest of truth why don't you ask Jayna Davis to release the Herb Johnson letter describing the directive to the FBI Oklahoma City Bombing Task Force to ignore the Middle Eastern participants in the bombing?
What is gained by keeping the Herb Johnson letter from the public?
If you could post a copy here or on jaynadavis.com it would be very helpful for those interested in the truth.
I am not sure I understand your last comment about keeping it from the public.
Jayna has a copy of the Herb Johnson letter, since there is not a copy available anywhere else to my knowledge,she is in effect "keeping it from the public". A copy of the letter is much prefered over a transcript. There is no signature on a transcript.
Jayna has copies of prior warning memos, however no where are copies of these prior warning memos available to the public. That's what I mean by "keeping it from the public".
Why does she want to keep these documents from the public?
I will certainly try if you think that is the only way a copy of the Herb Johnson letter and copies of the prior warning documents can be placed on jaynadavis.com or Freerepublic.
Is there any downside to making public copies of these documents?
If not, I would be happy to provide you with my fax number and I could place actual images of the copies on Freerepublic.Please freepmail me if you are interested in getting images of the copies on FR and would like my help.
From a interview, Jayna Davis :
"I had in my possession prior warning documents that I was given six years ago by the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare which validated all the witness testimony in Oklahoma City..."
Thanks for the suggestion. Jayna's email address is on her website at jaynadavis.com. I have emailed Jayna requesting that she post a copy of the Herb Johnson letter and copies of the prior warning documents on her website.
I would encourage anyone else interested in the truth about the OKC bombing to email Jayna and request that copies of the Herb Johnson letter and the prior warning documents be posted on her website.
If anyone is aware of any downside to these documents being posted, please let me know what it is.
My question is why was the building torn down and hauled away before the investigaters could prove that the small explosion out on the street did all the damage.
Perhaps the truth would be too obvious after a bit of thinking.
I think you are looking high enough. Most folks don't want to look that high up the line.
"Now who else on this jury wants to waste our time and risk your neck with the truth? Nobody? Wise decision, comrades."
Obviously there is more than one Herb Johnson letter. The specific letter I am referring to is dated September 1998 and was prepared at the request of Dan Nelson. The letter specifically memorialized Herb Johnson's conversation with a member of the key personnel in the Commamd Center of the FBI's Oklahoma Bombing Task Force. The subject was the directive received by the Task Force to ignore any Middle Eastern connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. Have you read this letter?
For the same reason that the presidential limousine was stripped and rebuilt in 1963.
For the same reason that John Connally's suit was cleaned.
For the same reason that the Davidian complex was demolished.
Take our word for it: Lee Harvey Oswald fired all the shots in Dealey Plaza; the Davidians set the fire; Tim McVeigh's truck bomb involved no one else.
Richard Jewell was the Olympic Park bomber, the sniper is an angry white guy, Flight 800 had a fuel tank explosion.
Fire is caused by phlogiston, planets' orbits are circles, the earth is the center of the universe.
War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is strength.
