FBI explanation of missing Oklahoma City bombing tapes not credible, judge says

Deseret News

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge on Wednesday continued to question the FBI’s explanation for not producing videotapes associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that a Salt Lake lawyer has sought for nearly six years.

‘Third Terrorist’ indicted

Renew America

Hussain Al-Hussaini’s comments to his therapist suggest there is much he knows about the Oklahoma City bombing that he has not revealed to the authorities — and about which the FBI has avoided asking him.

Mr. Al-Hussaini — a onetime member of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi army — is credibly alleged to have been the “Third Terrorist” in that diabolical attack on the Murrah Federal Building that killed 171 innocents on April 19, 1995 — the other two terrorists being Timothy McVeigh (executed) and Terry Nichols (serving time in a super-max security prison in Colorado).

Al-Hussaini is now in pre-trial detention at a Norfolk County Corrections Center in Dedham, Massachusetts, on unrelated charges.

Confession of the Oklahoma City Bomber: John Doe 2 Exists

American Thinker

The conviction of American terrorists, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, symbolizes the FBI’s crown jewel of criminal prosecutions.  So why do questions linger?  Does the official account of what transpired on April 19, 1995 reveal all that certain federal investigators know?  In the wake of the 1995 bombing, national polls showed 80 percent of Americans believed additional conspirators evaded capture.  Today, as the 16th anniversary approaches, the prospect of shadowy terrorists walking free still pervades the country’s psyche.  This time, however, the FBI itself is fueling the flames of public distrust.

Last week the vault of top-secret bombing evidence cracked open.  The Department of Justice, responding to Freedom of Information Act requests, released a declassified report detailing the May 26, 2005 interrogation of Terry Nichols.  According to the record, Nichols broke his decade-long silence, acknowledging his hands-on role in constructing the massive truck bomb that demolished the Oklahoma City Murrah Building.  While this revelation was all but academic, what Nichols said next threatens to rewrite history.

Declassified FBI Memo: FBI & ABC News Knew OK City Bombing Done By Muslims

By Debbie Schlussel

Now we know.  After years of telling us otherwise, the FBI–in its own words, on its own previously classified memo–knew the the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was likely the work and planning of Islamic terrorists, not just Timothy McVeigh.

It’s important because it confirms the tireless, ridiculed scoops and hard work by Oklahoma City TV reporter and journalist, Jayna Davis, who for years made the case that the bombing was the work of Iraqi intelligence.  It’s also important because, for years, the CAIR Action Network and other Muslim groups constantly point to that bombing as evidence that major terrorist attacks on America are also committed by non-Muslim, American Christian White guys (even though McVeigh was basically an atheist).  Now, we know for sure that Davis was right, and, per usual, that the HAMAS financier, CAIR Action Network was lying.

A big story in the news today is that a senior ABC News reporter was a mole for the FBI, according to a just released classified FBI memo from the 1990s.  But the far more important revelation in the the memo is that it confirms that the FBI and ABC News believed the Oklahoma City bombing might be the work of Iraqi intelligence working for Saddam Hussein and that Saudi Arabia warned about this same fact.

Will Congress (at last, officially) solve the mystery of ‘the third terrorist’ in Oklahoma City?

Renew America

By Wes Vernon

The chairman of the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations may soon hold new hearings on the credible allegations that a third man — this one from the Middle East — collaborated with Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

In a phone interview with this writer, Committee Chairman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) said that two weeks ago he met with Hussain Al-Hussaini — an Iraqi native alleged to have had a significant role in the bombing. The meeting took place at the site of a corrections facility in Dedham, Massachusetts, where Mr. Al-Hussaini has been held by authorities on charges stemming from a beer bottle brawl.

The man dubbed “The Third Terrorist” (see our report March 24, 2011) has been in jail awaiting a court appearance scheduled for Monday. He was arrested earlier this month on charges of assaulting a man at a homeless shelter in Quincy, Mass.

“Homeless” Man Hussain Hashem al-Hussaini is “John Doe #2 in Oklahoma bombing

CFP

On Wednesday, a “homeless man” was arrested in the Boston suburb of Quincy, Massachusetts on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after allegedly striking another man with a beer bottle. His name is Hussain Hashem al-HUSSAINI, although has several other aliases and a previous arrest record.

His arrest would have likely gone unnoticed except for the tenacious investigative journalism conducted in the months and years following the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City by author and investigative journalist Jayna Davis. Ms. Davis, a former reporter for KFOR-TV at the time of the bombing, identified al HUSSAINI as the “John Doe #2” in the April 19, 1995 bombing that claimed the lives of 168 people, including 22 children, three who were unborn. Her investigation is chronicled in her book, The Third Terrorist, and is an important investigative report into the actual events that took place in the months, days and weeks leading to the bombing, and perhaps even more importantly, in the years afterward.

Dick Morris: Bill Clinton Personally Orchestrated the 1993 Waco, Texas Tragedy

It looks like somebody is going to have to update the Waco Siege page on Wikipedia. Apparently the whitewashed history that former President Bill Clinton would like us to believe regarding the 1993 federal assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, is missing important details regarding his own personal involvement.

In response to Bill Clinton’s highly publicized linking of the Tea Party movement to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing in an op-ed piece for the New York Times, former Clinton adviser Dick Morris disclosed on Monday that it was Clinton himself, and not Attorney General Janet Reno, as Americans have been led to believe for the past 17 years, who called the shots during the 1993 botched invasion that led to the death of seventy-six people.

Speaking on the Hannity program on the Fox News Network, Morris criticized Clinton for his Oklahoma City comments: “Let’s understand what was Timothy McVeigh’s motivation …he himself had said that it was the reaction to the Waco takeover. Bill Clinton orchestrated that takeover.”

Morris went on to say, “Clinton in fact was so ashamed about what he did in Waco that he was not going to appoint Janet Reno to a second four-year term. She told him in a meeting right before the inauguration day … ‘If you don’t appoint me I’m going to tell the truth about Waco.’ And that forced Clinton’s hand … It’s never been said (publicly) before.”

For years, Clinton has been criticized for his leadership of the federal government during the Waco crisis, but he has managed to escape personal responsibility for the tragedy. With Morris’s statements, it appears this may no longer be possible. It would seem that Clinton was far more intimately involved with the government response at Waco than previously reported.

While there may be a link between Clinton and the Oklahoma City bombing, I would hardly blame the actions of a psychopath on any one individual or political party.

However, for Clinton to associate such a horrible act of violence with freedom loving Americans, especially given the fact that he must be fully aware that it was his decisions that led to the Waco catastrophe which in turn inspired Timothy McVeigh, is remarkably shameless.

The Left’s Blind Eye to the Obvious

American Thinker

By Jack Cashill

The approach of the new year might be an appropriate time to summarize what I have learned in researching the several books and articles that I have written this decade. That I came to own — or even break — many of the stories involved, although satisfying to me, should appall any ordinary citizen.

These stories were too big for a responsible media to miss.  They became mine as a result of what I call the “ABETTO Syndrome.”  For at least the last generation, the left in general, and the media in particular, have been turning A Blind Eye To The Obvious — ABETTO. Here are some nuggets the media chose not to notice. These are all thoroughly and inarguably documented.
  • More than half of those incinerated during Janet Reno’s tank attack at Waco on April 19, 1993 were ethnic minorities — 39 out of 74, to be precise. Six of them were Hispanic, six of Asian descent, and a full 27 of them black, ages six to sixty-one. They did not commit suicide.
  • About a third of the Jonestown dead did not commit suicide either. Three-year-olds typically don’t know how. Authorities dumped the bodies of more than 250 of these children, most of them black, into a mass grave in Oakland’s Evergreen Cemetery. There they lie to this day, unsung and unmourned because they serve no useful political purpose.
  • They serve no purpose because their killer, James Jones, was a self-professed “communist” in deep with a slew of leading Democrats — George Moscone, Harvey Milk, Willie Brown, Jerry Brown, and even Rosalynn Carter and Walter Mondale. Moscone appointed Jones to the Human Rights Commission and then to the chairmanship of the city’s Housing Authority.
  • All witnesses who saw Timothy McVeigh on the morning the Murrah Building blew up saw him with a short, swarthy fellow. According to the Washington Post, a judge detained McVeigh without bail “after listening to four hours of testimony from FBI special agent John Hersley in which he described eyewitness accounts of a yellow Mercury with McVeigh and another man inside speeding away from a parking lot near the federal building.”
  • Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, the so-called “field commander” of the Oklahoma City task force, played an even more aggressive role managing the TWA Flight 800 investigation a year later. The Clintons appear to have rewarded her for her steely performance with the vice-chairmanship of Fannie Mae, a job for which she had no known credentials.
  • Six years and about $25.6 million in salary and bonuses later, Gorelick responded to the call of duty once more and took one of five Democratic seats on the 9-11 commission.
  • By the FBI’s own count, no fewer than 270 eyewitnesses gave formal reports to the FBI describing a red-tipped object with a smoky contrail striking TWA Flight 800. About a hundred witnesses tracked the object from the surface. Astonishingly, the New York Times would interview none of them.
  • Four weeks after the disaster, the Times‘ Don Van Natta would report, “Now that investigators say they think the center fuel tank did not explode, they say the only good explanations remaining are that a bomb or a missile brought down the plane.”
  • Likely under White House pressure, and without any new evidence, the FBI immediately shifted its storyline away from a missile to a bomb, and a month later, from a bomb to a mechanical failure. The Times reporter who got the call to document both shifts was Andy Revkin, the same reporter at the center of the Climategate scandal.
  • Bizarrely, Richard Clarke, Clinton’s anti-terror czar who knew next to nothing about aircraft technology, claimed to have discovered the official cause of the TWA 800 crash months, if not years, before the NTSB did.
  • Clinton Commerce Secretary Ron Brown was dispatched on his fatal plane flight that same election year, 1996, for no more noble a purpose than to broker a sweetheart deal between the neo-fascist president of Croatia and the Enron Corporation.
  • The Air Force concluded that the controlled descent of Brown’s USAF plane into a Croatian mountainside was “inexplicable.” The maintenance chief responsible for the airport’s navigation system showed up with a bullet hole in his chest the day before his Air Force interview.
  • Brown’s fatal head injury struck the forensic photographer and attending pathologist as having the size and shape of a gunshot wound. He was nonetheless buried (over the protest of the pathologists) without an autopsy. The photographer and three Armed Service pathologists would sacrifice their careers going public with their discontent. The major media reported close to none of this.
  • As the Nation of Islam plotted to kill “heretic” Malcolm X, Malcolm’s wife Betty Shabazz approached the one person with the clout to dissuade Malcolm’s fellow Muslims. “You see what you’re doing to my husband, don’t you?” she pleaded. Muhammad Ali blew her off, saying, “I’m not doing anything to him.” Malcolm was gunned down shortly thereafter.
  • If a young Ali jeopardized his liberal chic by betraying Malcolm X, a reformed Ali risked it again when he publicly supported Ronald Reagan and even attended the Republican National Convention. Who would have guessed?
  • Alex Haley plagiarized his Pulitzer Prize-winning non-fiction bestseller, Roots, from a book written by white novelist Harold Courlander, who sued Haley for damages. Midway through the trial, the judge threatened to charge a dissembling Haley with perjury unless he settled, which he did for big bucks.
  • Sorry, Virginia, but there was no Kunta Kinte. Writing in the Village Voice, literary detective Philip Nobile would call Roots “one of the great literary hoaxes of modern times.”
  • Speaking of the literary hoaxes, not a single one of the scores of mainstream book editors who reviewed Christopher Andersen’s Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage chose to notice Andersen’s most newsworthy revelation: “In the end, [Bill] Ayers’s contribution to Barack’s Dreams From My Father would be significant — so much so that the book’s language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers’s own writing.”
For the more explosive of these stories — the death of Ron Brown, the destruction of TWA Flight 800, the Ayers’ involvement in Obama’s Dreams — I made every effort to alert the mainstream media. I talked in person to many reporters and producers, including a few household names, and offered to share what I had gathered. To a person, they did not want to know.
I believe I was the first reporter even to request the USAF’s twenty-two-volume report on the death of Ron Brown — this despite the fact that the New York Times lost a reporter in the crash. It was in the report that I learned about the Enron connection. Even after the Enron scandal broke, no one wanted to know about Enron’s role in Brown’s fatal mission.
One last nugget. When questioned by the Air Force, U.S. Ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith observed that Zdenka Gast, the liaison between Enron and Croatia, had been scheduled to fly with Brown but thought better of it.
Said Galbraith, “There were problems in-in-in this…in concluding this deal where they wanted to sign a letter of intent, and so, rather than…than go on the Brown trip, she stayed with the Inron [sic] people to do the final negotiations.”
“We’ve been looking for her,” volunteered Air Force Capt. John Cairney. The Air Force was apparently not allowed to look too hard. Investigators conducted 148 witness interviews, but Gast’s was not among them. A few years later, they could have found her at a White House wedding reception.
A Croatian language magazine named Gloria featured a photo of three smiling women at the reception, all linked arm in arm.  In the middle is Zdenka, an attractive, full-figured redhead. On her left is the bride, Alexis Herman, who dispatched Brown on his fatal trip. On her right is none other than Hillary Clinton. Only forty people were in attendance, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al and Tipper Gore, and “several governors and senators.”
I found this interesting.  Plagued as they were by the ABETTO syndrome, the bright lights of the mainstream media failed to share my interest.
If only there were a vaccine.
