Ten years ago today the Federal Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed.
One of the terrorists was executed. Another is in prison. A lot of innocent people were killed.
Did Nichols and McVeigh act alone or were they part of a conspiracy?
Anyone read the Jayna Davis book “The Third Terrorist”. Any truth to the fact that Al-Queda or other foriegn terrorist organizations may have been involved? Emphasis on “May Have”.
Hedo, if you read the book could you paraphrase some details…I’ve not heard of it.
I did not read the book. I heard her interviewed on a Philadelphia radio station this morning.
She basically said that while working as a reporter in OK city she stumbled across, what she believes, to be a connection to an Iraqi immigrant that was a former military officer. He was photographed in front of the Murrah building about 2 mins. before the explosion. She also uncovered meetings with this Iraqi and McVeigh. Her claim is that McViegh although angry with the govt. was coerced into the bombing. It sounded fascinating and apparently she has a few congressmen on her side.
No small coincidence, she tracked the guy down after 9/11 and found out he runs an airline catering service in Boston and services Logan airport. The launch point of two of the 9/11 planes.
I am going to order it and read it. Sounded fascinating. Don’t know how much is truth, how much is speculation.
The interview made me think of the incident. I remember I thought immediately it was a foriegn attack. I was shocked it was domestic. Who knows?
It’s funny last night on the History channel they had a show discussing connections to al-queda. In the show Nichols had traveled to the Philipines 5 or 6 times prior to the attack, met with a terrorist group with ties to al-queda and there was a connection also to first WTC bombing.(via somebody in the Philipines. Nichols had found a mail-order bride there, but had brought her back and continued to make trips there, kind of curious.[/quote]
I think there is more on this thing then has become common public knowledge. It just strikes me as odd that those two could pull this off by themselves.
