WASHINGTON DC (AP) - For almost fourteen years, he lived in a world of hatred, bigotry, and violence.
He attended Klan rallies and meetings of buttoned-down intellectual racists in business suits in the most upmarket hotels. He met and hosted Holocaust deniers like German- Canadian Ernst Zundel and British author David Irving. He was there at cross-burnings and street marches, waving a picket sign or a Confederate battle flag and always shouting the loudest of any among his White supremacist cohorts. He drank beer with Skinhead gangs, swapped jokes with them about African-Americans, Hispanics, and Jews, and heard them plot hate crimes and racial assaults. He cruised the Internet, posting racist messages to computer bulletin boards and newsgroups, making contacts with neo-Nazis and nationalist extremists the world over. He infiltrated the inner councils of almost every top hate group in the United States and even in Europe. He even filed a libel suit against another White supremacist who claimed he was an FBI informant.
But he was.
Last month FBI Special Agent James R. Finchley, a decorated Vietnam veteran and "one of the best and bravest men ever to graduate out of Quantico" according to a former instructor at the world-famous FBI academy who knew him and trained him, came in from the cold at last, after successfully carrying out the longest-running deep-cover infiltration of any criminal or terrorist underworld in the history of American law enforcement.
Finchley's fourteen years in the White racist underground produced only a handful of actual prosecutions, but "that wasn't his primary mission," according to the former director of the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit at Quantico, Kenneth M. Lanning. "He was there to listen and learn, and the wealth of information he obtained for us is beyond price."
"It is not too much to say that we now know virtually everything there is to know about organized race hatred in this country. These guys [White supremacist activists and leaders] couldn't go to the can without us knowing about it," Lanning said.
FBI Director Louis Freeh was not available for comment, but U. S. Attorney General Janet Reno told a reporter, "We usually do not make any public statement on covert operations of this nature until all criminal cases associated with an investigation have been brought to a conclusion, but I will say that Special Agent Finchley displayed uncommon courage, resourcefulness, and initiative in a very complex and often dangerous situation."
Finchley's cover was so deep he is reported to have actually married one woman who was involved in a White supremacist group he wanted to penetrate. On that occasion he went to St. Petersburg, Russia to meet and bring to America a Russian woman who was to be the "mail order bride" of a nationally known White supremacist leader who was banned from entering the country because of his views.
Finchley was so taken with the woman that he persuaded her to marry him instead, allegedly in order to keep her out of the clutches of the racist leader. Soon afterwards he and his Russian wife amicably divorced and Agent Finchley arranged for her to get a green card and relocate to Florida.
Justice Department sources are close-mouthed about many of the details of Finchley's fourteen-year odyssey into the murky underworld of racism and hate. "There are still some loose ends to be tied up, and once this gets out there are going to be some very angry White supremacists out there," said a spokesman for the Department. The source refused to say whether Agent Finchley had been moved into the Witness Protection Program or what measures were being taken to prevent retaliation by Finchley's former comrades in the racist movement.
Possibly the most bizarre event of Finchley's long- running undercover operation was when he was accused of having been involved in the Oklahoma City bombing as "John Doe Number Two" by the editor of a racist newsletter who had long suspected Finchley of being a Federal agent. Finchley took an absolutely unprecedented step: he sued the editor for libel and obtained a 110,000 default judgment when the defendant didn't show up in court to try the case.
"I don't know if he's been successful in collecting any of the money the judge awarded him," said Lanning.

The OKC Bombing: A Day of Truth ~ Ten Years Later
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CONTACT: Charles Key firstname.lastname@example.org April 3, 2005 405-470-1231 http://www.okctruth.com
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.
[APFN] The Terrance (Terry) Yeakey Incident
Terrance (Terry) Yeakey was a courageous young black
Oklahoma City police officer who was on duty near the
Murrah Building the morning of that building's bombing.
Officer Yeakey entered the bombed out Murrah building
and saw things that apparently caused him to be murdered.
The hideous details are within these audio tapes, an interview
with Terrance Yeakey's wife:

Lawmaker mulls re-examination of Oklahoma City bombing
House International Relations Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee
Chairman Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., might open another investigation
into the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred Murrah Federal Office
Building in Oklahoma City.
Rohrabacher wants to look into long-standing allegations that Timothy
McVeigh, who was executed for exploding the bomb, and Terry Nichols, who
is serving a life sentence for helping him, were not alone in the plot
and that federal officials participated in a cover-up.
Rohrabacher's spokeswoman would not give a time frame for hearings or an
investigation, saying he is "looking at the evidence. If it warrants a
hearing, he will go forward; if not, he won't."
Rohrabacher has discussed his plan with former Oklahoma GOP Gov. Frank
Keating, Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and Rep. Ernest Istook, R-Okla.,
and Keating and Istook discouraged him, the Tulsa World reported.
Keating said Rohrabacher told him he wanted to pursue a theory that
McVeigh and Nichols were trained to make explosives by the FBI, and when
they carried out the attack, the FBI covered up its involvement.
"I told him, 'With all due respect, I don't think you know how agents
work,'" said Keating, a former FBI agent and top-ranking Justice
Department official. "It makes absolutely no sense."
A spokeswoman for Istook confirmed he spoke with Rohrabacher and
discouraged him from going ahead.

"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my Country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."
