Topic: Uncovering the Cover-up

It has been reported piecemeal in the media over the past ten years that at least 16 men besides Terry Nichols and McVeigh’s neighbor, Michael Fortier, spoke to Timothy McVeigh about attacking a federal building before the OKC bombing. The reports show that all of these men had well established ties before the OKC bombing to one or more of the federal agencies, DEA, FBI, BATF, CIA, DOJ, and the US State Department.

An analysis of the FBI and DOJ conduct to suppress evidence and witnesses in the OKC bombing case reveals a consistent pattern of actions designed to hide from the public and the courts and Congress that these 16 men had provocateur and/or informant roles that contributed to the OKC bombing, roles that included encouragement, training, providing explosive materials and in some cases assisting McVeigh in OKC at the scene of the bombing.

All of these men are known to have been seen by witnesses with McVeigh and are considered John Doe suspects by the public and witnesses. Yet the FBI and DOJ have insisted that McVeigh and Nichols had no help from John Doe participants and formally closed the OKC bombing case in early May 2005. OKC FBI senior case agent Jon Hersley has also insisted in his book “Simple Truths” and on the recent Fox News Special about the OKC bombing that McVeigh and Nichols had no help from John Doe suspects.

But the definition of John Doe used by the FBI and DOJ in courts, and before Congress and in the public media does not include informants and provocateurs since they and their roles were known to and sanctioned by the FBI, DOJ, BATF, etc.

Some notable examples of the actions taken by the FBI, the DOJ and federal judges to conceal the roles of these 16 men are summarized below. All the known details, including names and events, have not been included because of word space limitations.

Refusal to either run or reveal the results of running over 1000 fingerprints taken in locations where McVeigh was known to be with one or more of the FBI provocateurs

- Refusal to turn over all surveillance tapes and photos confiscated from public buildings and witnesses in downtown OKC on the day of the bombing, April 19, 1995. Federal trial judge Richard Matsch ordered that all the tapes be sealed and not be turned over to defense attorneys or the media. But it is known from court testimony and eyewitnesses that the tapes and photos do show John Does, men with McVeigh in OKC at the scene.

- The FBI intentionally intimidated many John Doe witnesses in OKC not to talk to reporters or defense attorneys before, during and after the federal trials. And other John Doe witnesses were brow beaten and manipulated by FBI agents in an attempt by the FBI to make the witnesses either change their stories or discredit themselves. And almost all of the John Doe witnesses were not called to testify at the trials. The FBI and US prosecutors falsely and unfairly discredited the ones who did testify.

- Refusal to have the FBI sketch artist Jean Boylin do sketches of John Doe suspects seen with McVeigh by reliable witnesses in OKC. Boylin wrote in her book that FBI assistant Deputy Director Danny Coulson ordered Boylin not to make certain sketches because he said he did not want to help the defense.

- The FBI intentionally withheld FBI interview reports and lead sheets from the courts and in many cases also deliberately did not write up formal FBI 302 interview reports concerning key and very reliable witnesses the FBI did interview and who had seen John Does with McVeigh.

At the appeals hearing for Terry Nichols, defense attorney Michael Tigar complained to federal judge Richard Matsch about hard evidence Tigar presented showing that the FBI had intentionally not written 302 reports, had hidden and withheld many 302 reports they did write, and withheld thousands of lead sheets from the courts and defense attorneys. Matsch did nothing about the Tigar evidence and did not sanction or reprimand the US prosecutors or FBI agents involved in the corruption.

In 2001 the FBI and DOJ claimed that they has misplaced thousands of documents relevant to the OKC bombing case and the revelation prompted a delay in McVeigh’s execution. They also claimed that they had improperly destroyed many other documents relevant to the OKC bombing case.

On May 9, 2005 Salt Lake City federal Judge Dale Kimbal ordered the FBI to turn over to him by June 15, 2005 all documents, without deletions or redactions, it has about possible links between the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and a gang of white supremacist bank robbers. On May 25, 2005 the FBI admitted to judge Kimbal it had found 340 new documents in the OKC bombing case despite years of denials of their existence. But citing national security grounds, the FBI has now asked the judge to not order the release of FBI documents showing FBI involvement in the OKC bombing via Elohim City in Eastern OK.

Attorney Jesse Trentadue who brought the case before judge Kimbal has publicly said on KTOK talk radio in OKC that FBI documents Trentadue has already obtained show that:
McVeigh was trained at the white supremacist compound Elohim City in far Eastern OK by an FBI informant and operative in how to build the bomb used to blow up the Murrah building that killed 168 people on April 19, 1995.

McVeigh funded the OKC bombing with monies stolen from Midwest bank robberies that were directly aided by an FBI informant and operative, a member of the white supremacist Midwest Bank robbers, and another individual who operated out of the FBI controlled Elohim City operation.

Although the FBI knew from credible witnesses the identities of some of the John Does who helped McVeigh, the FBI avoided interrogating or questioning these John Does about their roles with McVeigh. McVeigh called three FBI provocateurs just days before the OKC bombing to tell them of McVeigh’s plans. McVeigh called German national Andreas Strassmeyer at the FBI monitored white supremacist compound Elohinm City in far Eastern OK shortly before the bombing. Dave Halloway and Ronald Greisacker are the other FBI provocateurs McVeigh called a few days before the bombing to notify them of McVeigh’s intentions.

McVeigh called Halloway in North Carolina and Greisacker in St Mary’s Kansas. Halloway was in US Special Forces and helped Strassmeyer escape the INS and leave the US. Greisacker was seen in Kansas with McVeigh and Strassmeyer and fits the description of one of the men seen loading the OKC truck bomb ingredients at Geary Lake in Kansas.

After the OKC bombing Ronald Greisacker set up the Freeman in Montana on bank fraud for FBI siege, arrest and conviction while David Halloway arrived on scene to negotiate the end of the Montana Freeman standoff for the FBI in 1997.

The Iraqi Al Hussaini was seen by numerous witnesses in OKC who told the FBI that they had seen Hussaini with McVeigh before and on the morning of the OKC bombing. Hussaini was brought to OKC by CIA director James Woolsey and President HW Bush after the first Gulf War. Eventually Hussaini became a baggage handler at Boston’s Logan airport up until the 9-11 attack at which time he is said to have disappeared.

Yet during this entire time, from April 1995 until 2001, the FBI never interviewed Hussaini, even when the FBI and OK state authorities were notified of Hussaini’s presence in 1998 at a deposition in OKC. Hussaini was deposed in OKC in his lawsuit against KFORTV over the station’s investigation of Hussaini. Hussaini’s lawsuit was eventually thrown out. If Hussaini was not formally considered by the FBI or CIA as an informant or provocateur, he might as will have been because Hussaini helped McVeigh and was given preferential and protective treatment by the FBI and CIA after the bombing.

· US Prosecutors, the DOJ, the FBI and federal judge Richard Matsch have intentionally concealed the role of gun dealer Roger Moore in the OKC bombing. Less than a year after the Nichols Federal trial, Roger Moore recanted his entire testimony in a letter to federal prosecutors but nothing was ever done to Moore by Matsch for Moore’s perjury even though Nichols defense attorney Michael Tigar complained bitterly to Matsch about it in Nichols appeals hearing in July 1999.

McVeigh wrote a scathing letter that reached judge Matsch concerning McVeigh’s complaints about his defense attorneys, including Stephen Jones, for the defense attorneys’ refusal to go after Roger Moore in the McVeigh trial even though asked to by McVeigh and when told detail about Moore’s role by McVeigh.

McVeigh’s defense attorneys clearly learned for certain of Moore’s role after the Nichols trial where letters written by Moore to McVeigh were presented that showed Moore to be encouraging McVeigh to attack the New World Order. Roger Moore frequently used the alias Robert or Bob Miller in his letters to McVeigh. But Bob Miller’s name was also on the drivers license found in the Shawnee Mission locker of Midwest bank robber and FBI provocateur and informant Peter Langan. There was also exculpatory evidence available that the defense did not use but showing that Roger Moore was also arrested by the OK state highway patrol in OK for firing a tracer round into a vehicle during road rage and for fighting two troopers while resisting arrest.

Furthermore the Nichols appeals hearing in July 1999 brought to the attention of McVeigh’s attorneys the recantation letter by Moore to the prosecutors. Yet nothing was done to go after Moore by McVeigh defense attorneys, Matsch or the prosecution during the McVeigh trial appeals ongoing right up until 2001.

Moore met and recruited McVeigh in Florida in 1993 while Moore worked with the FBI, CIA and Israeli intelligence that were also monitoring the Islamic Jihad terrorist cells and mosques of professor Sammy AlArian, Jose Padilla (alleged radiation bomber) and Ramadan Sallah at WISE (World Islamic Studies) and the University of Southern Florida for over thirteen years. FBI agent Kerry Myers testified at the McVeigh trial but Myers was also involved in the 13-year operation concerning WISE with Israeli Intelligence and the FBI and CIA in Florida. There was a raid in OKC at a mosque on March 13, 1995 looking for members of WISE connected to the threat the FBI and OK Congressman Ernest Istook received of an attack on the Murrah building in April 1995.

Moore built high-speed boats powered by nitromethane for the CIA at the time Moore met McVeigh in Florida. Nitromethane was an ingredient the FBI says was used in the Ryder truck bomb transported by McVeigh. Nitromethane is also the ingredient of the binary explosive, Kenepak, that Moore sold to McVeigh for the Murrah bombing and that was recently found in Nichols house in Kansas ten years after the OKC bombing. The FBI has yet to release findings on whether or not Moore’s fingerprints were on the Kenepak materials confiscated by the FBI in Nichol's house.

The other man involved in the Florida operation with Israeli intelligence and the FBI was William Northrup, who worked for US intelligence and Israeli intelligence at the same time with the full knowledge of both the US and Israeli governments. Northrup came to OKC on April 16, 1995 from the Florida operation to warn the FBI in OKC on April 17, 1995 of a bomb attack on the OKC federal complex sometime set for the same week.

Attorney General Ashcroft ordered OKC FBI agent Dan Vogel not to testify or make public statements about what the FBI did with evidence concerning ME terrorist involvement provided to the FBI by reporter Jayna Davis in 1999.

Citing national security grounds, a three judge panel of the tenth circuit court of appeals in Denver refused to order the US government to turn over evidence of US foreknowledge of a ME terror connection to the OKC bombing. The evidence was summarized in a Writ of Mandamus filed by McVeigh defense attorney, Stephen Jones in March 1996.

It is troubling that the man who brought McVeigh’s Iraqi helper to OKC is former CIA director Woolsey, the same man who vetted Jayna Davis’ book on the OKC bombing, “The Third Terrorist”. It is even more troubling when one considers that fact that the 13 year Florida monitoring of professor Sammy AlArian’s terrorists and the recruitment operation with Roger Moore, McVeigh, William Northrup, the FBI and Israeli intelligence was known to the CIA and therefore should have been known to the CIA director at the time, James Woolsey.

It is troubling that CA Congressman Dana Rohrabacher may use his subcommittee on investigations for international relations to cover up and manipulate the complete details of the OKC bombing. James Woolsey has been asked to testify about the OKC bombing before Rohrabacher’s subcommittee. Chicago attorney David Schippers has been designated to interview confidential witnesses in the OKC bombing case by Rohrabacher according to a Jayna Davis press release. Schippers is a Woolsey confidant and the attorney for Jayna Davis and OKC FBI agent Dan Vogel.

Respected Republican leader and journalist Kenneth Timmerman reported in his January 2004 article “Dana Rohrabacher's Troubling Friends” that Rohrabacher has ties to radical Muslims connected to terrorism. Timmerman has written several articles and a book warning of GW Bush's and Carl Rove's strong connections via Grover Norquist to terrorist individuals and organizations.

Although Timmerman writes of Rohrabacher's blind spot when it comes to Muslim backed terrorist groups, it may be potentially much worse than that. Anything that Rohrabacher would learn from investigators about ME terrorist and FBI collusion with ME terrorists in the OKC bombing could be minimized by Rohrabacher to limit damage to himself and to his colleagues-those Republican Congressman and Senators (during the Clinton administration) who had oversight responsibility over the FBI and CIA, had foreknowledge of the OKC bombing, and covered up the OKC bombing operation.

The public should be gravely concerned that officials in the US government used provocateurs in the OKC bombing, failed to warn the public, failed to stop the bombing, and have taken illegal measures to continue covering up these failures and the use of provocateurs.

My Polaris submarine patrol in the Pacific was in far East Asia near China but I can not elaborate any more than that other than to say it was a very special, historically significant and exceptionally dangerous.

Briley was chosen to work under Admiral Rickover at Naval Reactors. He volunteered for Naval service from 1968 to 1976 during the Viet Nam era including being in Naval ROTC, a batallion commander of my ROTC unit and a Midshipman on board the ballistic missile submarine, SSBN 624, the Woodrow Wilson, as well as serving at Naval Reactors in DC for Admiral Rickover.

Patrick started research and investigation into terrorist attacks after the Oklahoma City bombing. Pat submitted his findings concerning the OKC bombing and the 9-11 attacks in briefings to high-level staff for the Senate Judiciary and Senate and House Intelligence committees, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, and the 9-11 Commission.

All of these men are known to have been seen by witnesses with McVeigh and are considered John Doe suspects by the public and witnesses. Yet the FBI and DOJ have insisted that McVeigh and Nichols had no help from John Doe participants and formally closed the OKC bombing case in early May 2005.
