This story begins with an evil genius named Ramzi Yousef or "Rashid the Iraqi,"
his nom de guerre when he comes to Jersey City in 1993. He arrives on an Iraqi
passport to show the aspiring local Islamic terrorists how to build a truck
bomb. His target is the World Trade Center. His goal is to kill 250,000 people
when one of the twin towers topples into the other, and the bomb discharges its
Fortunately, the cyanide evaporates in the blast, and the towers hold. A
disappointed Yousef boards a plane that afternoon and heads back to the Middle
East. His accomplice, Abdul Rahman Yasin, takes off for Baghdad where he lives
under Saddam's protection for the next 10 years.
In November 1994, in a time of relative peace and prosperity, the Democrats lose
a shocking 53 seats in House, eight in the Senate, and control of both. The
blame falls on the Clintons' doorstep. The loss sets the president and Hillary
Clinton on a quest to retain the White House so desperate that they will
knowingly sacrifice national security to advance their own cause. If this means
tailoring investigations into likely terrorist acts to first fit their political
needs, so be it.
That same November, Yousef applies for a visa to the Philippines. On the next
day, Terry Nichols of Oklahoma City fame receives a visa for the Philippines.
On the way to the airport two weeks later, Nichols unnerves his ex-wife, Lana,
when he hands her a sealed package and tells her, "If I'm not back in 60 days,
open it and follow the instructions." Curious, Lana opens the package only to
find a will, Nichol's life insurance policy, and instructions that lead her to
$20,000 in cash.
Two weeks after Nichols' arrival, Ramzi Yousef boards a Philippines Airline
flight in Manila and plants a small practice bomb. The bomb kills the Japanese
tourist who takes his seat after Yousef had disembarked in – of all places –
Cebu City ... the city where Terry Nichols was staying.
A month later, January 1995, Yousef has to flee his Manila apartment after
setting it on fire while building bombs. When his roommate – a Pakistani pilot,
Abdul Hakim Murad – returns to the apartment to retrieve Yousef's laptop, he's
Under intense questioning, Murad reveals Yousef's Bojinka plot, a plan to blow
up a dozen American airliners over the Pacific. He also reveals a post-Bojinka
plan to hijack commercial airliners or use small planes filled with explosives
to attack specific American targets, the pilots for which are in training at
American flight schools. The Philippine police even make a flow chart connecting
many of the key players together, including Osama bin Laden, Ramzi Yousef and
9-11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Yousef's uncle. Philippine authorities
turn over all of this information to U.S. authorities by early 1995.
The authorities nab Yousef in Pakistan a few weeks later.
As to Terry Nichols, he beats it back to the United States. When Lana asks him
why he had come back so soon, he tells her cryptically, "Somebody could get
killed down there."
In "Against All Enemies," the much-celebrated Richard Clarke has this to say
about the visits of these two terrorists to the same city in the same country at
the same time: "We do know that Nichols' bombs did not work before his
Philippine stay," writes Clarke, "and were deadly when he returned."
April 16-18, 1995
After his conviction, Timothy McVeigh told his story to two reporters from his
hometown Buffalo News, Lou Michel and Dan Herbeck, and they in turn retold it in
a useful book published in 2001 called "American Terrorist."
The McVeigh that one meets in "American Terrorist" is a powerful and crafty
fellow. He somehow teaches himself how to build a massive truck bomb and is even
prepared to assemble the 7,000-pound monster himself.
As McVeigh tells it, Terry Nichols shows up at his Kansas storage facility when
he's half way through the loading process and then only because he's afraid of
what McVeigh will do to his family if he does not. The pair then drive to a
nearby lake and spend the next three hours mixing 13 500-pound barrels of
A Washington Post article from a week after the blast – when the truth is still
being shared and reported – suggests the improbability of this story:
Law enforcement sources said the 4,800-pound bomb that caused the explosion
probably required at least two to three people to construct and considerable
patience and planning. Building such a device would be extremely
The bomb proved to be half again bigger than that, but for McVeigh, it was all
in a morning's work – at least according to McVeigh and, alas, the prosecutors.
After mixing the bomb, McVeigh allegedly drives alone toward Oklahoma in the
loaded truck, crosses the Oklahoma border, and stops for the night at a small
gravel lot near an anonymous "roadside motel." By his own timeline, however,
McVeigh would have reached this motel about 2 p.m. This makes for a long and
April 19, 1995
The next morning, April 19, as he tells it, McVeigh drives into Oklahoma City
alone, sees no one, and no one sees him. He lights the fuses and then parks the
Ryder truck in front of the Murrah building. He then grabs the thick packet of
anti-government materials he brought with him, jumps out of the truck, and walks
and runs with packet in hand to his yellow Mercury Marquis parked nearby.
In her stunning book, "The Third Terrorist," Jayna Davis documents beyond all
doubt that McVeigh is telling only half the story. As Davis argues, McVeigh and
Nichols had help from Islamic terrorists, not only in the Philippines, but also
in Oklahoma City. In her role as a reporter for KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City, Davis
interviewed more than 20 reliable eyewitnesses who identified the crew of Iraqi
nationals who had helped McVeigh assemble and deliver the bomb.
Twenty minutes before the blast in downtown Oklahoma City, employees at a tire
store spot McVeigh and a short Middle Eastern-looking man, in the Ryder truck,
and even give the pair directions to the Murrah building intersection.
Another eyewitness, Daina Bradley, cries out to the rescuers who are trying to
extricate her after the blast – and they have to amputate her leg to do so, "It
was a Ryder truck. It pulled up, a foreign looking man got out, and then before
long, everything went black."
The FBI traces the truck's vehicle identification number to Eldon Elliot's body
shop in Junction City, Kan., where the Ryder truck was rented. There, several
witnesses tell the agents that McVeigh came in with a short, swarthy guy. This
is where the search for John Doe No. 2 begins in earnest.
Jayna Davis also identifies and interviews numerous eyewitnesses at the Cactus
Motel in Oklahoma City who see – and smell – the Ryder Truck on the night of the
18th. On the morning of the 19th, these witnesses watch as the yellow Mercury
Marquis and a brown late-model pickup leave the motel with the Ryder truck in a
convoy of three vehicles.
Five minutes before the blast, printing operator Jerry Nance notices an unusual
car in the downtown Oklahoma City parking lot near where he works. It's a
dilapidated yellow Mercury Marquis. Behind the wheel is a dark-skinned, Middle
Eastern-looking man in a ball cap.
Nance remembers the car well. When he walks back toward it, after he gets some
stuff from his own car, the Mercury Marquis almost runs him over. Now, however,
the Middle Eastern man sits in the passenger seat, and a tall white man is
driving the car out of the parking lot, recklessly at that.
Two minutes later, the Murrah building blows. Nance informs the FBI of this
incident before anyone knows McVeigh has been apprehended in a yellow Mercury
Three hours after the blast, the FBI issues an all-points bulletin for a brown
Chevy pickup, with tinted windows, seen speeding away from the area, with two
Middle Eastern-looking men inside.
A week later, the FBI quotes Nance and the tire store employees in its request
before a federal judge to hold McVeigh over for trial. One of the tire store
employees picks McVeigh out of a line-up of look-alikes even before he sees
McVeigh on television. The Washington Post of April 28 confirms the same:
The magistrate, Ronald L. Howland, ordered McVeigh to be held without bail after
listening to four hours of testimony from FBI Special Agent John Hersley in
which he described eyewitness accounts of a yellow Mercury with McVeigh and
another man inside speeding away from a parking lot near the federal building.
For the next six weeks, John Doe No. 2 is the most hunted man in the world
until, without explanation, he just kind of goes away. The fix is in – the
mother of all political fixes ... the Mega Fix.
