Nichols Implicates FBI Informant In OKC Bombing
Amazing New Evidence
By Pat Shannan
American Free Press
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.
Those familiar with the details of the case say Nichols has evidently come to conclude-as have many independent investigators-that he (Nichols) and McVeigh were being manipulated prior to the bombing by federal authorities in what was intended to be a "sting" the feds would use as "proof" of their skill in tackling domestic "terrorist threats" from "radical right wing extremists."
However, it is believed, the sting went awry, possibly manipulated by others outside the loop, and the bombing occurred.
Now, in prison for life, Nichols evidently hopes to expose the role that Moore and his live-in girlfriend, Karen Anderson, played in the events.
Moore and Anderson gave testimony in the federal trial, helping to convict Nichols. But independent investigators have said all along-contradicting the FBI's reliance on Moore and Anderson-that their testimony was obviously perjured.
The problem for Nichols, though, is that the record has shown that Moore was an admitted FBI informant as long as a decade ago and may be still protected.
Moore, a Royal, Ark. gun dealer, claimed to have been robbed by McVeigh and Nichols of some 66 guns, cash and gold coins in November 1994. The FBI and federal prosecutors claimed that the proceeds were used to finance the OKC operation.
However, the defense team undermined that theory by producing a signed motel receipt proving McVeigh was in Akron, Ohio, on the date in question. This did not keep either the prosecutors or the news media from repeating the robbery story. It is still widely believed.
Moore, who used the alias "Bob Miller," according to Nichols, later changed his story and said that it definitely was not McVeigh and Nichols who had robbed him, but he apparently was attempting to plant the opposite impression at the time. Townspeople remembered Moore going from barroom to barbershop the week of the alleged robbery, describing McVeigh and asking if anyone had seen him in the area.
At the time, Moore was a confidential informant for two FBI agents named Ross and Hayes, out of the Hot Springs office. The two were the same agents who discovered the "stolen" guns in a sack behind the house trailer of Michael Fortier in Kingman, Ariz., a few days after the bombing.
Fortier was later implicated in the conspiracy and is serving a 20-year sentence.
AFP has learned that the FBI had the information as early as March 1. Agents had received this information purportedly from the mouth of Nichols through an oftused informant named Gregory Scarpa, who is a convicted mobster serving a long stretch with Nichols in Florence, Colo.
At first, FBI officials scoffed at the idea, but then sent a polygraph expert to the prison on March 4. He concluded that Scarpa was lying.
Scarpa then called private investigators he had worked with in the past and, during a seven-hour meeting on March 10, showed a letter in Nichols's handwriting attesting to his claim.
Not trusting the FBI, the investigators worked through a contact, who had high-level Homeland Security connections.
Then, on March 11, Scarpa provided the authorities with the address of the house and detailed descriptions of the location of the explosives.
Nichols had allegedly told Scarpa that he hid this second cache 10 years ago to be used as a follow-up to the Oklahoma City blast.
On March 31, the FBI finally made its move-calling in the Topeka bomb squad, evacuating the immediate neighborhood, and cordoning off a three-block area.
They worked through the night and into the next day.
The FBI would not confirm that its agents found anything, but mainstream news organizations were told by Oklahoma City's FBI office that explosive devices were found. What little surfaced in a period of predictable news frenzy, was that the FBI was embarrassed for not having found this material 10 years ago.
The OKC Bombing: A Day of Truth ~ Ten Years Later
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact Charles Key
A press conference will be held Tuesday, April 5, 11:30 am, at the Jesus statue on NW 5th and Harvey. Participants are REACH, an organization of survivors and family members of victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing, former Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key, founder of The Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee, and film producer Christopher Emery.
The purpose is to call on Congress to open hearings on the Oklahoma City Bombing and the U.S. Justice Department and FBI's mis-handling of the investigation and trial. '58 of my friends died and they tried to kill me - I want everyone responsible to be held accountable, said VZ Lawton, a survivor of the bombing who worked for HUD. The Justice Department has continually refused to release the 24 surveillance videos that will show who was with McVeigh that morning. It's a shame we have to go to Congress to make them release the videos. And we want them to run the 1,034 fingerprints against the FBI's database to identify them also. It is an outrage that they did not try to find out who those fingerprints belonged to.
The Justice Department failed to turn over several thousands of documents in the case over the past five years. They have also been criticized for failing to stop the bombing after receiving numerous warnings from undercover agents and informants. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) is considering opening hearings on the case. Several top officials of the U.S.J.D. have lied to, ignored and patronized the people of Oklahoma City for the past ten years. They have presented nothing more than half-baked, error-riddled explanations that fail to hold to the basic standards of sound criminal investigative work. This is unacceptable. As U.S. citizens, we have no choice other than to work towards revealing the entire truth surrounding this case so our children and their children will know what really happened here. Why should any of us be asked to remember the deaths of the Oklahoma City bombing victims in a lie? asked Chris Emery.
The FBI last week received embarrassing press yet again for failing to properly detect and secure evidence in Terry Nichols home. Nichols attorney Brian Hermanson speculated that the bomb making material found last week may have been planted there.
The group announced it is also sponsoring The OKC Bombing: A Day of Truth ~ Ten Years Later reception, dinner, and speakers forum to be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Tuesday, April 19th and Wednesday, April 20th, 2005. U.S. Congressman Bob Barr will be the keynote speaker for the special ten-year anniversary V.I.P event. Barr represented the 7th District of Georgia in the U.S. Congress from 1995 to 2003. In addition, he served as a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, as Vice-Chairman of the Government Reform Committee, and as an eight-year veteran of the Committee on Financial Services.
The reception and dinner on Tuesday, April 19, 2005 begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. It will be held on the second level of the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City. Reservations are required. To make reservations, go to www.okctruth.com and click on the "Reservations" button OR CALL 470-1231.
The Speakers Forum will be held on Wednesday, April 20th from 9:00 am to approximately 8:00 pm and feature key people directly involved with the investigation and trials. It will also be held on the second level of the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City. Reservations are not required but recommended as space may be limited. To make reservations, please go to www.okctruth.com and click on the "Reservations" button.
Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all. - Michael Rivero
OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING COVER-UP
"WE ARE APT TO SHUT OUR EYES AGAINST A PAINFUL TRUTH... FOR MY PART, I AM WILLING TO KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH; TO KNOW THE WORST; AND TO PROVIDE FOR IT." ---- Patrick Henry
WHO KILLED TERRY YEAKEY?
Only a couple of hours into the rescue, Sgt. Terrence Yeakey became painfully aware of something disturbing. Did he somehow figure out that the building had been blown from the inside and that the news reports were baloney? Did he overhear a strange conversation from some of the many ATF agents who were on the scene sooner than they should have been? Whatever it was, Terry was upset. He called his wife that morning crying - the big ol' Teddy Bear of a guy was crying - and saying repeatedly, "It's not true. It's not what they are saying. It didn't happen that way." Terry Yeakey may have been the first to discover the sham.
