Using the legal powers of "discovery," an attorney in an ongoing conspiracy trial in Utah has obtained an affidavit from Terry Nichols, co-conspirator with Tim McVeigh in the OKC bombing, that says a high-ranking FBI official was directing McVeigh in the OKC bombing.

Pamela Manson of the Salt Lake Tribune tells what we know to date [my comments in brackets]: "The [FBI] official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government 'in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma,' Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit. Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth. [This is only the excuse for blacking out large portions of the FOIA documents. What is being withheld is the identity of all the FBI officials involved in the cover-up.]

"The affidavit was filed in a lawsuit brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, who believes his brother's death in a federal prison was linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. The suit, which seeks documents from the FBI under the federal Freedom of Information Act, alleges that authorities mistook Kenneth Trentadue for a bombing conspirator and that guards killed him in an interrogation that got out of hand. Trentadue's death a few months after the April 19, 1995, bombing was ruled a suicide after several investigations. [Alleging suicide is a typical way of covering for prison wrongdoing.]

"In his affidavit, Nichols ... alleges he wrote then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004, offering to help identify all parties who played a role in the bombing but never got a reply. Nichols is serving a life sentence at the U.S. Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colo. ... McVeigh and Nichols were the only defendants indicted in the bombing. However, Nichols alleges others were involved.

"McVeigh told him he was recruited for undercover missions while serving in the military, according to Nichols. He says he learned sometime in 1995 that there had been a change in bombing target and that McVeigh was upset by that. 'There, in what I believe was an accidental slip of the tongue, McVeigh revealed the identity of a high-ranking FBI official who was apparently directing McVeigh in the bomb plot,' Nichols says in the affidavit." [This explains why McVeigh, branded as a "right-wing" extremist, refused to talk to any of the right wing people who tried to contact him in prison hoping to get him to help them find out about government involvement in the case. There were various Middle Eastern "John Does" that were seen with McVeigh, and the FBI kept protecting their identity and refused to allow the grand jury to pursue them. McVeigh knew he was working with the government and thought it his great "patriotic duty" to die for his country rather than blow the cover on this covert black operation.]

Both the Bush administration and the Utah courts tried to keep this damning information of Terry Nichols from becoming public. As Joseph Watson of noted, "The filing was quickly sealed by a Utah district court, but not before the Deseret Morning News identified the accused FBI provocateur as Larry Potts. Trentadue dropped the bombshell that Attorney General's Ashcroft's office gagged Nichols from speaking to the media after it became apparent that McVeigh's accomplices and government ties to the bombing were in danger of leaking.

"'Apparently before he had contacted me several years ago he had written to Attorney General Ashcroft, volunteering to tell everything about the bombing and the others involved,' said Trentadue. 'Not only did no one from Attorney General Ashcroft's office follow up with Nichols, they actually apparently issued an order barring him from all contact with the media --it was thereafter that he reached out to me and I was able to get in to see him to spend a day and half with him.'"

The agent Nichols refers to is none other than the notorious Larry Potts, who has been involved in every major FBI (dark side) provocation of so-called "right-wing extremists." Potts lead the siege at Ruby Ridge in 1992, which resulted in the death of Randy Weaver's wife Vicki. Government and military witnesses said he was present at the siege of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas that resulted in the burning death of eighty-one Branch Dividian men, women, and children. Potts was forced out of the FBI as the scapegoat taking the blame for giving the order to open fire on innocent people in the cabin at Ruby Ridge.

But, as is typical, dark side agents never retire. They have a process called "sheep-dipping" where the government finds them some type of covering employment while they still keep working for the covert side of whatever agency needs them. It is truly a secret club.

According to one informant I interviewed who got invited to one of this secret club's parties by his FBI handler, these "black" agents have a special ring they wear at special inter-service social gatherings (of the odious, immoral variety), and they brag about being "immune" from prosecution for their evil acts. They also told him about secret funding sources they have from drug shipments sponsored and controlled by the CIA. Only once did the media got a whiff of these unsavory social gatherings (called the "Good 'Ol Boys Roundups") in 1990. One of the less corrupt agents attending one of these secret multi-jurisdiction stag parties (in the Cherokee National Forest in East Tennessee), alerted a friend in the press that other agents had put up a "nigger hanging tree" and made "nigger hunting licenses" available. Except for the racist angle, the press wouldn't have otherwise been interested if the agent had only reported the conspiratorial aspects of this gathering--which is taboo for mainstream media coverage.

The Tribune continues: "Nichols also says that McVeigh threatened him and his family to force him to rob Roger Moore, an Arkansas gun dealer, of weapons and explosives. He later learned the robbery was staged so Moore, who was in on the phony heist, could deny any knowledge of the bombing plot if the stolen items were traced back to him, Nichols claims. He adds that Moore allegedly told his attorney that he would not be prosecuted in connection with the bombing because he was a 'protected witness.' [What Nichols claims is very probable. This is a common covert tactic to shift blame away from those involved.]

"Nichols says McVeigh must have had help building the bomb. The device he and McVeigh built the day before the bombing did not resemble the one that ultimately was used, Nichols says, and 'displayed a level of expertise and sophistication' that neither man had."

The final bomb was prebuilt by covert agents and delivered to McVeigh in one of the two Ryder trucks that were at the team's disposal. I believe the extra truck was photographed at a nearby military secure yard in Oklahoma. As Paul Watson says, "In early April 1995 a Ryder truck identical to the one used in the bombing was filmed by a pilot during an overflight of an area near Camp Gruber-Braggs, Oklahoma. A June 17th, 1997, Washington Post article authenticates the photos as being exactly what they appear to be, photos of a Ryder truck in a clandestine base at Camp Gruber-Braggs. Why was the military in possession of a Ryder truck housed in a remote clandestine army base days before the Alfred P. Murrah bombing?" The bomb Nichols helped McVeigh build was much smaller and was removed from the plot when the two identical Ryder trucks were switched.

It is my analysis that Nichols was a legitimate right wing individual and McVeigh was not. Nichols was brought into the plot in order to help the government cast blame on the right wing militia movement. The Islamic militants Nichols was sent to meet with in the Philippines also turned out to be agent provocateurs. They were part of the same cell directed by Ramsey Yousef, who masterminded (on behalf of his US covert agents) the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. We know this now because his relationship with the FBI surfaced during the first WTC bombing trial. These informants were doing much more than taking notes--they were often directing the operation and helping to secure the explosives. Nichols figured this out while in jail and that's why the gag order. It was only because a court order for discover breeched the gag order that we have access to his affidavit today.
