Oklahoma City Bombing: Probe of Islamic ties 'obstructed' by feds

Alert Focus: The Mystery of Lawlessness 2 Thessalonians 2:7a For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work;... Genesis 6:5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Ephesians 5:11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them Congressman who chaired panel says public'would be outraged if they knew the extent' WORLDNETDAILY - By Art Moore - December 23, 2006 -- Federal officials were "outrageously obstructive" during a congressional probe examining possible Islamic terrorist and foreign ties to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, according to a congressman who disclosed to WND some of the highlights of a subcommittee report scheduled for release next week. "The public would be outraged if they knew the extent of obstruction, or lack of cooperation, that has been given to this investigation," said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., who led the probe as chairman of the International Relations' Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. One example was the Justice Department's handling of a lead Rohrabacher received from an independent investigator concerning a Muslim figure with suspected ties to the Oklahoma City bombing whose name curiously shows up on the list of unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center attack. The New York City bombing was attributed to Muslim terrorists connected to al-Qaida. The report will document a series of correspondence between the subcommittee team and Justice officials that concluded with a refusal to turn over information about the suspect – for no apparently legitimate reason, according to Rohrabacher. "This may well reflect the way the Justice Department deals with legislative branch investigations in general, which is very disappointing," Rohrabacher told WND. "In this case, however, we're talking about the investigation of the mass murder of 168 Americans and how that relates to the threat we face today from al-Qaida, and we find that to be rather alarming." As WND reported, International Relations Committee Chairman Rep. Henry Hyde, R, Ill., scheduled a hearing to look into a possible "foreign connection" to the bombing, but it was canceled, Rohrabacher said, due to an inability to secure witnesses. Rohrabacher initiated the probe after examining evidence gathered by independent investigators such as Jayna Davis, author of "The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing." Davis asserts Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh were not the lone conspirators but part of a greater scheme involving Islamic terrorists and at least one provable link to Iraq. The explosion April 19, 1995, at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building killed 168 people, including 19 children, and injured another 684.... Rohrabacher concludes it was not good judgment on the part of the federal government to execute McVeigh – the primary witness – while questions remained and rumors of other conspirators persisted. "We call into question the thoroughness of the FBI investigation," he said. Rohrabacher said federal officials were unreasonably uncooperative. For example, armed with new evidence, he wanted to interview Nichols in prison in Colorado but was denied.... Rohrabacher said he also was denied access to others with suspected ties to the Oklahoma City bombing, including al Qaida-linked terrorists Ramzi Yousef and Abdul Hakim Murad, who reportedly has said Yousef was responsible for the Oklahoma City attack.... "Federal authorities were outrageously obstructive in our attempts to see these prisoners," Rohrabacher said. But the congressman said he could not assess motives. "This may just be a case of bureaucratic arrogance that carries over into all such investigations," he said, but added it's "completely unacceptable" in investigating a crime of the magnitude of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. ...
