Oklahoma City Bombing - Missed Attempt?

Nefarious nexus: The 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing, DHS & MIAC memosAnniversary Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma CityBy Doug Hagmann Friday, April 17, 2009

Sunday will mark the 14th anniversary of the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that claimed 171 lives - 168 men, women and children and three unborn. It is also a day on which the largest criminal conspiracy and cover-up of the 20th century began and continues today.
Before I continue, I want to point out that it seems to be a fairly common practice for Internet bloggers and others who live the majority of their lives in the virtual realm to throw around accusations such as “conspiracy” and “cover up” based on what they read or find as a result of Internet searches. This practice, usually by people who have not even changed out of their pajamas or left their homes, frequently diminishes the importance associated with those accusations. Therefore, it is important for readers of this article to understand that the accusations of conspiracy and cover-up referenced herein are based on the information developed from real life investigation, external, on-site research and even surveillance conducted by professional investigators over the last several years.
The April 19th, 1995 bomb blast that shredded the Murrah building and the lives of hundreds of American families continues to reverberate within the United States in a way that the Islamic terrorists connected to the plot and the bombing, all who have been and remain domiciled in the United States, could have only dreamed about. It is successfully serving as a catalyst to shred something else - the constitution of the United States and the rights of patriotic citizens.
It is absolutely no coincidence that the bombing of the Murrah building is referenced within nearly all of the government investigative documents that culminated with the nine-(9) page assessment published by the Department of Homeland Security on 7 April 2009. That document, which (and this is VERY important to understand) is merely an unclassified assessment of a collection of much more detailed documents, began to “go viral” when radio talk-show host Roger Hedgecock broke the story last week. Its release was accompanied by outrage, mainly by right-wing conservatives, who were appropriately disgusted but its implications. That outrage was further fueled by the remarks made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano that she stood by the report.
It was nearly two months ago when a similar document issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) was leaked. That document, which was based on a collection of other documents published by DHS and distributed among their fusion centers, also referenced the dangers posed by right-wing extremists in the U.S., hinting by association at the Oklahoma City bombing.
It is important to understand that these two documents are merely a miniscule representation of a growing number of reports shaping the current policy of the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS, ostensibly established to enhance the security of law-abiding Americans from the threats of terrorists, has been effectively manipulated from within and externally. One has to look no further than the southern border fence project to understand that the homeland security is less about security and more about control, although that will be addressed separately.
Obviously, one can see a pattern that has developed and is being carefully refined through a very well orchestrated molding of public perception by various government officials having a larger agenda. That agenda is advanced further through the actions of a cooperative and highly compromised media. That agenda consists, in part, of demonizing the conservative element of America through unfounded accusations and facilitating the advancement of their globalist aspirations. And 14 years after the 1995 terrorist bombing in Oklahoma City, they are exploiting the tragic loss of life to shamefully advance their own agenda.
Over the next several days as we mark the anniversary of this attack, I will be publishing an extensive series on our investigative findings of the Oklahoma City bombing, the Muslim terrorists who were involved in the planning and execution of that attack yet continue to walk the streets of America, and the politicians who let them.
Meanwhile, if you would like to get important information - the real truth behind the Oklahoma City Bombing, I would recommend grabbing a copy of The Third Terrorist by Jayna Davis. Of all the books written about the 1995 terrorist attack, her book is unquestionably the most authoritative investigative product you can get on this subject.

What Really Happened in the Oklahoma City Bombing? Many Victims' Families Believe FBI Knew Bombing Was Being Planned;
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
As printed in Human Events, October 31, 1997, pp. 12,13,18.
http://comeandtakeit.com/okc1.html
In his new book The Secret Life of Bill Clinton: The Unreported Stories, just published by Regnery, renowned investigative reported Ambrose Evans-Pritchard alleges massive corruption and cover-ups in the Clinton Administration in connection with many incidents, including the death of Vincent Foster, drug dealing in Arkansas, and the Paula Jones case.
He also raises, as the Terry Nichols trial begins, some very serious questions about the tragic 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. There is no doubt that Timothy McVeigh was guilty, says Evans-Pritchard, but he believes that nothing like the full story has ever come out. Why? Because the government, although it interviewed over 20,000 people, failed to call many knowledgeable witnesses during the trial, witnesses who could discuss collaborators with McVeigh and Nichols. He makes a strong case that the reason the government covered up--and continues to cover up--is that bumbling FBI agents knew in advance that the bombing plot was afoot but failed to stop it.
He discloses what he calls "the smoking gun of the Oklahoma bombing," a memo written only two days after the bombing. The memo discusses the FBI's debriefing of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms undercover agent who infiltrated a neo-Nazi paramilitary group where men close to McVeigh talked about using violence against the U.S. government.
The charges in this book are sure to stir emotional reactions, but, writing about the book last week, national syndicated columnist Robert Novak said that Evans-Pritchard "is no conspiracy theory lunatic [and] is known for accuracy, industry, and courage." Evans-Pritchard has reported from the United States for both the Spectator and the Sunday Telegraph, for which he was Washington bureau chief.. He has recently returned to England and is now serving as the Daily Telegraph's roving European correspondent. In the following excerpts from the first two chapters of The Secret Life of Bill Clinton, Evans-Pritchard explains why so many families of bombing victims are suspicious of the official story of what happened that day and why hundreds have now filed suit against the government.

Affidavit: McVeigh had high-level help

False Testimony In McVeigh CaseEvidence Tampering, Perjury Alleged by FBI Lab Workers; Proof Withheld from Defense
By Mike Blair
http://tedgunderson.com/Articles/False%20Testimony%20In%20McVeigh%20Case.htm
As Oklahoma brings Terry Nichols, the convicted accomplice in the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, to trial on state charges, lawyers are discovering that the federal prosecution of alleged “lone bomber” Timothy McVeigh was in many respects a sham.
Prosecutors believe that the FBI not only tampered with evidence but also may have rigged the trial of McVeigh in 1997. The FBI concealed what it had done right up to the point when the Gulf War I veteran was executed in 2001.
Ten days before McVeigh's execution, lawyers for employees of the FBI laboratory, which processed physical evidence for the prosecution of McVeigh, wrote an urgent letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft citing evidence that Steven Burmeister, now chief of the lab's scientific analysis, may have given false testimony about key forensic data.
The FBI did not divulge the letter to McVeigh's attorneys and later retrieved all copies of the document from the lawyers by offering their clients a cash settlement.
Burmeister's part in the McVeigh prosecution “stinks,” said the former FBI special agent in charge of the Los Angeles office, Ted L. Gunderson, now retired, who has been investigating the Oklahoma City bombing since it happened.
FBI whistle-blower Frederic Whitehurst, who was Burmeister's mentor at the FBI lab, said Burmeister, an explosives expert, had complained in the months leading up to the trial that he was being pressured by prosecutors and lab employees to change his testimony and scientific conclusions.
“Steve definitely spoke of the pressure to me,” Whitehurst wrote in a letter in which he alleged that prosecutors twice tried to get Burmeister to testify in a certain way in the Oklahoma City case.
Shortly after the bombing, Burmeister indicated in a statement that there were improprieties in the manner in which evidence was handled at the lab in the McVeigh case.
However—18 months after the bombing—just before McVeigh's trial, Burmeister corrected himself in another interview by investigators, saying, “there are several statements in the (first) interview, which I would like to clarify or correct.”
The lab official then went on to correct or retract earlier statements that he had made about colleagues who worked on the bombing evidence, that they did not use proper techniques or were unqualified to do some tests they performed.
“I'm not sure why I would have said that,” Burmeister said at one point in the follow-up interview. He was referring to his earlier statement that a knife with possible explosives residue on it should not have been swabbed in the lab.
FBI officials have admitted that they do not know whether Burmeister's interviews were ever turned over in McVeigh's case or in the trial of his supposed accomplice, Nichols, who is serving life in prison on federal charges.
“Contradictory sworn statements are the kind of information a jury could take into consideration in evaluating his [Burmeister's] credibility, especially when those statements come to bear on the very expertise he is supposed to have,” Stephen Gillers, a New York University law professor who specializes in legal ethics, told Associated Press.
Even the inspector general, who investigated the FBI lab following the Whitehurst revelations, found Burmeister's second interview unconvincing.

According to Oklahoma bombing conspirator, ranking officials were involved in the attack
By Pamela Manson
The Salt Lake Tribune, Article Last Updated: 02/21/2007 01:03:43 AM MST http://greenpagan.blogspot.com/2007/02/affidavit-mcveigh-had-high-level-help.html
Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says a high-ranking FBI official "apparently" was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building and might have changed the original target of the attack, according to a new affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.
The official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government "in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma," Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit. Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah had no comment on the allegations. The FBI and Justice Department in Washington, D.C., also declined comment.
Nichols does not say what motive the government would have to be involved in the bombing. The affidavit was filed in a lawsuit brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, who believes his brother's death in a federal prison was linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. The suit, which seeks documents from the FBI under the federal Freedom of Information Act, alleges that authorities mistook Kenneth Trentadue for a bombing conspirator and that guards killed him in an interrogation that got out of hand.
Trentadue's death a few months after the April 19, 1995, bombing was ruled a suicide after several investigations. The government has adamantly denied any wrongdoing in the death.In his affidavit, Nichols says he wants to bring closure to the survivors and families of the attack on the Alfred B. Murrah Federal Building, which took 168 lives. He alleges he wrote then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004, offering to help identify all parties who played a role in the bombing but never got a reply.
Nichols is serving a life sentence at the U.S. Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colo. McVeigh, who carried out the bombing, was executed in 2001.McVeigh and Nichols were the only defendants indicted in the bombing. However, Nichols alleges others were involved. McVeigh told him he was recruited for undercover missions while serving in the military, according to Nichols. He says he learned sometime in 1995 that there had been a change in bombing target and that McVeigh was upset by that. "There, in what I believe was an accidental slip of the tongue, McVeigh revealed the identity of a high-ranking FBI official who was apparently directing McVeigh in the bomb plot," Nichols says in the affidavit.
Nichols also says that McVeigh threatened him and his family to force him to rob Roger Moore, an Arkansas gun dealer, of weapons and explosives. He later learned the robbery was staged so Moore, who was in on the phony heist, could deny any knowledge of the bombing plot if the stolen items were traced back to him, Nichols claims. He adds that Moore allegedly told his attorney that he would not be prosecuted in connection with the bombing because he was a "protected witness."Moore could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
In addition, Nichols says McVeigh must have had help building the bomb. The device he and McVeigh built the day before the bombing did not resemble the one that ultimately was used, Nichols says, and "displayed a level of expertise and sophistication" that neither man had.

Terry Nichols Implicates FBI Informant in Bombing
Amazing New Evidence Emerges in Oklahoma BombingBy Pat Shannan
A recent raid on the one-time home of Terry Nichols has uncovered more evidence implicating federal agents in the bombing of Oklahoma City’s Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.
A source has told AFP that bomb components discovered at the former home of the OKC bombing accomplice have been linked to a federal informant who investigators believe lied during the trial of Timothy McVeigh, who was executed after his conviction in the bombing.
There are now serious allegations that the FBI, using an informer as a conduit, supplied McVeigh and Nichols with the blasting components the two used to construct explosive devices, one of which may have been employed in the tragic Oklahoma City bombing.
Although there was much recent media hoopla surrounding the March 31 FBI raid on Nichols’s vacant home in Herington, Kan., the entire story, which is not being told by the mainstream media, suggests evidence of federal government complicity in events leading up to the OKC tragedy.
While the media reported that previously undiscovered explosives were found on the raid at Nichols’s home, adding further fuel to widespread public belief that Nichols—and McVeigh—were solely responsible for the OKC bombing, there’s much more to the story than meets the eye.
In fact, AFP has learned that Nichols himself apparently leaked the information about the previously undiscovered cache in his Kansas home.
Why Nichols did so is the real story behind the story that the media seems to be keeping under wraps. Nichols’s apparent goal in sharing this information was to provide information not only to bust the man who allegedly supplied the material, an FBI informant named Roger Moore—Nichols being certain that Moore’s fingerprints would be on the material—but also to expose the FBI’s role in supplying Moore the material in the first place.
