Jayna Davis' OKC Evidence

In my recent post about Iraq's links to Islamic terror, I included a discussion of Jayna Davis' reporting on the involvement of Iraqi nationals in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

But those links were kind of buried in the latter portion of the post, and I felt in retrospect that her evidence deserved a post of its own. You see, Davis didn't stop looking for John Doe No. 2 just because the FBI decided several days into a massive manhunt, and in contradiction of a dozen witnesses, that John Doe No. 2 didn't exist.

A summary of her findings, and a more detailed narrative of her investigation contain compelling evidence not only that Iraqis were involved in the OKC bombing, but that the Clinton administration, through the FBI, worked actively to conceal that fact. Read it all. Please.

The Bush administration has shown no interest in dredging up most of the scandals of the Clinton administration, but apparently the recent focus on Saddam's Iraq, and the persuasiveness of Davis' evidence has certain officials at the "highest political levels" interested in having the FBI reopen the OKC investigation.

I am not optimistic that the FBI will now be a party to exposing their own corruption, and admitting that they either bungled a major terrorism investigation, or were co-opted by the Clinton White House into pushing the line that McVeigh and Nichols were simply "angry white men" acting alone.

I believe that as much as I believe that the Branch Davidians burned themselves up, that Vince Foster shot himself in Ft. Marcy Park, and that TWA 800 had a spontaneous center fuel tank explosion. But that's just me.

There was a lot of cross-blogosphere interest in that theory of Jayna Davis and Laurie Mylroie way back when (not long after 9/11). It pops up again every once in a while but unless the FBI does agree to reopen the investigation, all we can do is speculate.

Also, there are witnesses linking McVeigh and Nichols to Islamic fundamentalists in the Phillipines, and their were Al Qaeda conventions in Oklahoma City before the Murrah building bombing. (See Steve Emerson's book, American Jihad.)

Not to mention Saddam's ties to WTC bombing #1 in 1993.... it is all connected and will surely come out over the years.

I just finished reading "The Third terrorist" by Jayna Davis. It was an interesting quick read That leaves the reader with more questions than answers. Jayna seems to have single mindedly determined what happened on April 19, 1995 then sought out only the evidence that fit into her narrow view of the players involved. An unbiased investigative journalist would have molded a theory according to all the facts, then formed an opinion, not the other way around.

The only hard evidence offered in her story that possibly could be substantiated yet was never followed up on are the details surrounding a local motel in Oklahoma City that the perps may have frequented.

Her anti Iraqi/Middle Eastern stance throughout the book borderlines racism with her anything but objective commentary. There are facts in this case that hint at an Islamic connection but they are over shadowed by Jayna's zeal to be vindicated for her jump the gun journalistic tactics.

Any one who is interested in what really transpired that fateful day might follow up on forthcoming revelations from Terry Nichols himself. And so far he hasn't given up John Doe #2, Muslim, olive skinned, Indian ect. but an old white guy named "Roger Moore" and his gun running gal pal "Karen Anderson" (her skin color has not been determined) The Feds have retorted that no matter what comes forth from Terry Nichols mouth "the case will not be reopened" Which leaves this reader to wonder was it was ever opened in the first place?
