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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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,
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
