Sometimes old news is the best news to watch:
Jayna Davis is an exceptionally competent investigative reporter. She put her findings in a book, entitled The Third Terrorist. The case it presents is airtight. Years prior to writing her book, when the OKBOMB cases were still being investigated and tried, she took her information to the FBI, and a description of her reception by the FBI is at the end of the vid embedded above. Jayna Davis finishes the segment with these words:
"They outrightly refused to take the information and that information implicated a Middle Eastern terrorist cell funded by Osama bin Laden as assisting Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols in executing the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building. Their reasons? Their motivations? That's a question for the Department of Justice and the former Attorney General [Janet Reno]."
Well, they're not going to tell us, so let's speculate.
As Jayna Davis explained in Take AIM: Jayna Davis on OKC Third Terrorist, April 22, 2010:
DAVIS: Well at the time I was an investigative reporter for Oklahoma City's NBC affiliate, KFOR TV, and just by virtue of proximity I was one of the first news correspondents to report the death and destruction of April 19th, 1995. In fact CNN took our live broadcasts within fifteen, twenty minutes of the bombing, and I was one of the reporters on the scene. So I've been following this from its inception, from the moment of detonation, and I spent the next nine years documenting, very copiously, a Middle Eastern connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing. And I laid out that research in my book, The Third Terrorist, and it outlines details of sworn affidavits from very credible witnesses who link the convicted bombers, Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols, to an Iraqi hit squad of former soldiers who served in Saddam Hussein's army, the Republican Guard, during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. They immigrated to the United States after Operation Desert Storm as false defectors. In the fall of 1994, about six months before the Murrah Building attack, these Iraqi servicemen suddenly showed up in an Oklahoma City property management company and began working for a Palestinian real estate mogul, who, according to my research, and the federal court record, this man was suspected of ties to the terrorist organization known as the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Now these 22 witnesses, that I gathered and collated all their copiously presented evidence and testimony, they positively identified eight specific Iraqi soldiers aiding and abetting Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols in the months, the weeks, the days, and the final hours leading up to that deadly moment of 9:02 AM on April 19th, 1995.
So, there was a definite connection to Iraq, with Saddam Hussein striking back as he could for his mother-of-all-defeats in the Gulf War.
I met with the FBI in May of 1995. Shared all my evidence. Within four days of that meeting and turning over surveillance video tape of these Iraqi soldiers at this local property management company, where they worked, after I turned that over, within four days the FBI held a national press conference and said John Doe Two may be a case of mistaken identity. But they were speaking out of both sides of their mouth. They parsed their words very carefully. Janet Reno stated, 'We have not officially ruled out the suspect.' So while the press assumed the search was over, the national manhunt, they left the door open that if anything were to come up, they could always step aside and explain why they pulled the search for John Doe Two; they pulled the plug on the tipline. I believe that's because when I handed my surveillance tape of those Iraqi soldiers, they knew who John Doe Two was, and President Clinton was not about to arrest a foreign suspect in which the United States of America would cry out for a military response to take out Saddam Hussein.
The picture painted is one of a Bill Clinton in 1995 wanting to direct anger against American "right-wingers" for political purposes. Again skipping down some:
DAVIS: [President Clinton] actually had a political boost and a bonus as a result of no foreign connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. He was able to capitalize on the rhetoric of the day. And actually he propagated that rhetoric. He actually lit the fuse, okay, and he fueled the flames of demagoguery.
After the stunning defeats the Democrats were dealt in the 1994 mid-term elections, His Slickness understood very well his own job would be on the line in 1996, but if he could castrate the Republicans and put them on the defensive by painting them not as mean-spirited, but as terrorists, he might save his Presidency and gain another term.
But, then, why, when Bush-43 wants to invade Iraq a few years later, does "W" not dig this up and point this out as a legimate reason to connect both Iraq and Al Qaeda, and go after Hussein's regime? Why does "W" send his minions out with the Curveball crap about weapons of mass destruction?
Perhaps a clue can be found in Davis' answer to another question in another interview. From The Real Story of the Oklahoma City Bombing, April 27, 2010:
I asked Davis what it will take for the version of history that she has largely written to become the accepted narrative of what really happened. She said the people have to continue to press the authorities and the major media, even at this late date, for the truthful answers.
"Here's where I think it, it lies: It's going to have to be the peasants with the pitchforks," she said, referring to popular disgust with the official version of the story. "These people are going to have to rise up, just like the Tea Party movement is angry about Washington policies that affect their pocketbooks and the future of their children and the national deficit. They're going to have to rise up and demand that this record is corrected."
Otherwise, she said, the liberal left will continue to use their version of Oklahoma City to smear anybody critical of their control of the federal government.
She explained, "They're going to continue to label anybody who carries a placard or raises a voice of dissent in a peaceful protest as a 'Tim McVeigh wannabe.' And until The Third Terrorist, and this evidence embodied in my book, is actually proven, prosecuted, and validated in a courtroom setting, the label of 'Tim McVeigh wannabe' is going to continue to be attached to God-fearing Americans who dare to step forward and question and hold to account their elected officials."
So, McVeigh really was a terrorist, connected to the Middle East. But, they will deny this and use his example to accuse you of being a terrorist until you step forward and prove that they are criminals.
With all that in mind, do you really think they want to be able to illegally wiretap you (and waterboard you if necessary) to protect you from the very terrorists they have just shown they themselves protect whenever it's convenient to do so?
