It was the largest terrorist attack on American soil in history before the September 11 attacks.

    The FBI's record doesn't inspire confidence that we're being well protected The House International Relations committee issued a report last week criticizing the FBI's investigation of the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. The FBI failed to pursue credible information that Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols had help, the committee said. The FBI shouldn't have abandoned its search for John Doe No. 2, the committee said. Jayna Davis, then a reporter for a television station in Oklahoma City, said she found at least 20 witnesses who identified Hussain al-Hussaini, a former Iraqi soldier, as the man they...

    A Tulsa airport police officer was fired Thursday after he was accused of lying to Congress about the Oklahoma City bombing. J.W. Reser, 55, had worked at the airport since March 4. He was terminated for "acts on or off the job which would bring embarrassment, distrust or discredit to the city of Tulsa," said Kathy McNair, attorney for the Tulsa Airport Authority. Reser claimed in a sworn statement he saw a video of a Middle Eastern man getting out of the passenger side of the bomb truck seconds before the April 19, 1995, explosion. Reser said he saw the...

    Police officer misled investigators, House committee chairman says 2002-11-13 By Larry Margasak Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - A House committee has asked the Justice Department to investigate a police officer it alleges misled congressional investigators by claiming he saw a videotape of a Middle Eastern man leaving the truck used to bomb the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995. J.W. Reser, the policeman, told investigators he viewed the surveillance tape while working as a contract employee for the government, including Army and Navy intelligence, but officials from both services said they knew nothing about Reser or the tape, the committee...
  • Gov't Had Missile in Okla. Building

    Gov't Had Missile in Okla. Building Thursday September 26, 2002 7:50 AM WASHINGTON (AP) - When Timothy McVeigh blew up the Oklahoma City federal building, the government had a TOW antitank missile stowed in a locker several floors above the daycare center. The missile, about 3 feet long, actually had an inert warhead and only a small amount of rocket fuel, and the government says it did not contribute to the massive explosion that day. Instead, it tumbled into the rubble of the Alfred P. Murrah building. But its discovery prompted an evacuation that slowed rescue efforts April 19, 1995,...

The scorching produced a mea culpa of sorts in June from FBI Director Robert Mueller and a promise of reform.Now there's another whistle blower telling a similar pre-9/11 tale. And so far, the FBI has gone to great lengths to silence him.The Weekly has learned that Chicago-based special agent Robert Wright has accused the agency of...

    WASHINGTON, Jun 20, 2002 (AP Online via COMTEX) -- Just weeks before Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995, U.S. intelligence and law enforcement received several warnings that Islamic terrorists were seeking to strike on American soil and that a likely target was government buildings, documents show. The information, though it was never linked to McVeigh, was stark enough that the Clinton administration urged stepped up security patrols and screening at federal buildings nationwide, including those in Oklahoma. The government, however, didn't fortify buildings with cement barriers like those hurriedly installed after McVeigh detonated his explosive-laden truck...
