"We will chase [Americans] to every corner at all times. No high tower of steel will protect them against the fire of truth."Just sayin'. There's also this doc, a rumination about possible post 9/11 strategies that might surprise a few.
Chief of lraai Intelligence In a Cable to Saddam, Baghdad Radio, February 8, 1991
What an amazing coincidence:
It was a routine call for Quincy police about two homeless men fighting. Hussain Al-Hussaini was arrested. The victim was taken to the hospital.While I've never been too hot on Jayna Davis' investigation of the Murrah bombing (some seems contrived or forced to fit, and why would her prime suspect still be in America) it might be interesting fodder for a hearing. If Hussein al-Husseini really was a former member of the Iraqi Army or the Republican Guard doesn't that make his pre-bombing dabblings with McVeigh just a tad bit suspicious? Davis claims he was employed, along with other Iraqi immigrants, by a Pakistani real estate mogul who had spent time in the federal pen for fraud. McVeigh was a Gulf War vet who had soured on America.
Then came the surprise. Readers commenting on a story about Wednesday’s arrest on The Patriot Ledger’s website noted that a man with the same name was mentioned prominently in a book about the deadly bombing of an Oklahoma City federal building in 1995
If we take Saddam's various warnings about striking America to heart isn't plausible to think he might have sent some 'individual Arabs' to enact revenge, not only for the Gulf War, but for Clinton's 1993 bombing of his Mukhabarat HQ in Baghdad (presumably for the plot to kill Bush 41)? That was a government building as well, containing security personnel--just like the Murrah. Arabs love them some revenge, and Saddam was the revenge king.
Both Stephen Jones, McVeigh's attorney, and Richard Clarke, our former counter-terrorism czar believe that Terry Nichols bombs improved after his trips to the Philippines. Neither are considered 'neocons'. Nichols visited the same city where Ramzi Yousef, Abu Sayyaf and other Islamic terrorists were known to hang, about the time they were hanging. He bought a life insurance policy and left final instructions before his last trip. What was he afraid of? Is this the real reason Bush attacked Iraq? What's wrong with having a public investigation of this as we did with 9/11? I guess I just can't let this stuff go.
