Declassified FBI Memo: FBI & ABC News Knew OK City Bombing Done By Muslims

By Debbie Schlussel

Now we know.  After years of telling us otherwise, the FBI–in its own words, on its own previously classified memo–knew the the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was likely the work and planning of Islamic terrorists, not just Timothy McVeigh.

Buy Jayna Davis’ Book on Muslim Involvement in Okla City Bombing . . .

It’s important because it confirms the tireless, ridiculed scoops and hard work by Oklahoma City TV reporter and journalist, Jayna Davis, who for years made the case that the bombing was the work of Iraqi intelligence.  It’s also important because, for years, the CAIR Action Network and other Muslim groups constantly point to that bombing as evidence that major terrorist attacks on America are also committed by non-Muslim, American Christian White guys (even though McVeigh was basically an atheist).  Now, we know for sure that Davis was right, and, per usual, that the HAMAS financier, CAIR Action Network was lying.

A big story in the news today is that a senior ABC News reporter was a mole for the FBI, according to a just released classified FBI memo from the 1990s.  But the far more important revelation in the the memo is that it confirms that the FBI and ABC News believed the Oklahoma City bombing might be the work of Iraqi intelligence working for Saddam Hussein and that Saudi Arabia warned about this same fact.

As I noted recently, there was previously a lot of evidence that the Oklahoma City was the work of Islamic terrorists, including the presence of McVeigh associate and Iraqi agent Hussain Al-Hussaini, whom the FBI confirmed was seen with McVeigh throughout the planning of the attack, including when McVeigh rented the vehicle used in the bombing.  Most of this evidence was dug up and brought out by Ms. Davis, a then-Oklahoma City television reporter, whose book, “The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing,” is a must-read.

So why did the FBI cover up the fact that the bombing was an Islamic terrorist operation? The usual–political correctness toward Muslims can be the only answer. More:

A once-classified FBI memo reveals that the bureau treated a senior ABC News journalist as a potential confidential informant in the 1990s, pumping the reporter to ascertain the source of a sensational but uncorroborated tip that the network had obtained during its early coverage of the Oklahoma City bombing.

The journalist, whose name is not disclosed in the document labeled “secret,” not only cooperated but provided the identity of a confidential source, according to the FBI memo. . . .

The ABC employee was even assigned a number in the FBI’s informant database, indicating he or she was still being vetted for suitability as a snitch after providing “highly accurate and reliable information in the past” and then revealing information the network had obtained in the hours just after the 1995 terrorist attack by Timothy McVeigh.

The journalist “advised that a source within the Saudi Arabian Intelligence Service advised that the Oklahoma City bombing was sponsored by the Iraqi Special Services who contracted seven (7) former Afghani Freedom Fighters out of Pakistan,” an April 17, 1996 FBI memo states, recounting the then-ABC journalist’s interview with FBI agents a year earlier on the evening of the April 19, 1995 bombing. (The Iraqi connection, of course, never materialized.) . . .

The memo was recently discovered by Utah lawyer Jesse Trentadue, who has spent years researching the Oklahoma City case trying to prove a connection between the terrorist bombing and the death of his brother in an Oklahoma prison in the summer of 1995.

The root of the memo lies in Trentadue’s relationship with Terry Nichols, one of the defendants convicted in the 1995 terror attack, who is serving life in prison. Trentadue recently found the document — unredacted and still marked secret — in a box of documents gathered by Nichols’ defense attorneys.

The memo suggests the ABC journalist reached out to a counterterrorism agent in New York City on his or her own the night of the bombing, in part because the information acquired suggested that “there were two other bombing incidents planned” soon at government offices in Houston and Los Angeles.

Unfortunately, the memo says the ABC reporter’s source for the information was Vincent Cannistraro, an unreliable, vehemently anti-Israel former CIA counterterrorism chief, who was then on the Saudi payroll as a “consultant.” Still, his story jibes with what Jayna Davis discovered.

The political correctness of the 2000s and 2010s with regard to Muslims and terrorism had early roots in the 1990s. Why wasn’t Hussain Al-Hussaini more closely scrutinized? Why wasn’t he sent to rendition, instead of being allowed to roam free on American streets? Why wasn’t Timothy McVeigh offered a deal in order to turn in his Islamic compatriots? It’s pretty clear he couldn’t possibly have planned and carried out such a successful attack on his own?

We’ll likely never know the answers. But we’ll always know one thing for sure: the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies go out of their way to cover up for Islam and Muslims.

And Americans continue to go along like sheep and say nothing.


So, who was the FBI mole at ABC News?  Was it John Miller, now an official of the Obama Administration?  For years, Miller straddled back and forth between high profile jobs at the FBI and ABC News?  He’s one of the only American reporters to ever interview Osama Bin Laden on video and fancies himself something of an investigative journalist and terrorism expert.  He’s now Barack Obama’s Associate Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analytic Transformation and Technology.

Will ABC News’ “Deep Throat” come to light?  We’ll see.

Most people of reasonable intelligence, not corrupted by liberal Islam-pandering tendencies, suspected Islam had a hand in the Oklahoma city bombing.The information of the middle-Eastern people seen with McVie has been suppressed in the media as today’s media-culture is so absolutely driven by the philosophy of ‘relativism’ and ‘multiculturalism’ whereby no-one dare criticise sacred little things such as Islam.

1+1 always equals 2! And the infidel-hating Koran + receptive Muslims equals jihad.

Barry on April 5, 2011 at 1:22 pm

One report that Muslims were to blame. Then what was McVeigh’s trial all about?

Solomon2 on April 5, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Debbie I remember the initial news reports from OKC said a middle eastern looking guy was bring sought in connection with the bombings. No doubt the McVeigh white guy story better fit the ‘s agenda. I also think a lot of these mysterious plane crashes are being swept under the rug. Nobody wants to point the finger at Muslim countries or imprison their agents. BTW I have taught Mordechai to put on tefillin. He looks forward to performing for you in person.

A1 on April 5, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Given Ms. Davis meticulous research and her transcripts of her many interviews with witnesses, I am dumbfounded by the lack of interest by the Feds in following up on findings.
As an aside, I thank you for again pointing out McVeigh was not a Christian. McVeigh himself stated such in both writings and in interviews. Nor was he a member of any Christian militia etc. as is constantly asserted by the very corrupt SPLC.

pat on April 5, 2011 at 1:35 pm

I seem to remember a Jordanian who left the country right after the bombing was picked up somewhere in the Middle East and then let go. Is that guy a suspect again?

Also, this brings back some ironic memories. My best friend looks exactly like the sketches of John Doe #2.

Dr Dale on April 5, 2011 at 1:36 pm

I’m not surprised.

The disclosure vindicates Jayna Davis and puts to the rest the politically correct myth the bombing was the work of a lone white guy.

We’ll never know for sure whom McVeigh worked with since he’s now dead but what we do for sure now is he didn’t do it alone.

It was Islam from the beginning. End of story.

NormanF on April 5, 2011 at 1:40 pm

The events surrounding this saga just keep getting stranger. What ever problems McVeigh had with the government, he made matters worse by siding with the enemies of civilization.

Encroaching collectivism, wealth redistribution, and expanding government power are all alarming, but the FBI continually apologizing for Muslims is frightening on an entirely new level.

Vince on April 5, 2011 at 1:41 pm


You’re obviously not as wise as your namesake. McVeigh’s trial was about his part in the bombing. The fact that it now is becoming public knowledge that there were Muslim or Iraqi co-perpetrators who, to date, have managed to escape justice doesn’t mean McVeigh was innocent.

Eliezer on April 5, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Occam's Tool on April 5, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Don’t believe your lying eyes. Believe what we tell you. That seems to be the official reply to all the inconsistancies with the Oklahoma City bombing.
I watched the live news coverage. Bombs were still going off after the first explosion. How do you do that with a car bomb?

Bill on April 5, 2011 at 2:51 pm

This informant passed on a rumor that comes from what you yourself admit is not credible. I therefore question the notion that the FBI “knew” that Muslims were involved.

Rhymes With Right on April 5, 2011 at 2:51 pm

That is not to say that I discount the possibility/probability of involvement by either Saddam or Islamists. I just don’t think this bit of info qualifies the “smoking gun” that you are suggesting it is. I instead think it is the equivalent of the guy on the grassy knoll.

RwR: He was passing on info he got from the Saudi Intelligence people he worked with/for. As I noted, many other sources corroborated that story and then, there’s the presence of former Iraqi Intelligence man, Hussain Al-Hussaini, every step of the way with McVeigh, including to rent the bombing vehicle. The FBI repeatedly confirmed that info on Al-Hussaini. Anyone who dismisses that as rumor or “grassy knoll” stuff is simply ignorant of the facts. DS

Rhymes With Right on April 5, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    You speak as though there is not evidence that Kennedy was shot by someone positioned at the Grassy Knoll. More than 50 witnesses have stated that shots were fired from the Grassy Knoll. Dozens of people race raced up toward the Grassy Knoll soon after the shots were fired, including Dallas police officers. The fact that the US Government failed to follow-up on the mountain of evidence indicating that shots were fired from the Grassy Knoll does not mean that those scores of witnesses to that tragic event in Dallas were wrong, unless you happen to believe that the US Government never lies to the American people.

    Ralph Adamo on April 6, 2011 at 12:46 am

Wasn’t the OKC bombing during Clinton’s watch? There was no “terrorism” during Clinton’s watch… heh….

Doda McCheesle on April 5, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    Ding ding ding! You just said the magic word. Bill Clinton directed the FBI to NOT follow leads toward Islamic involvement.

    Debbie asks, “So why did the FBI cover up the fact that the bombing was an Islamic terrorist operation?”
    The answer is because Bill Clinton didn’t want there to be a successful act of Islamic terrorism during his presidency. Let this heinous deception then be part of his legacy.

    Richard on April 5, 2011 at 7:58 pm

And saddam gruesomely for it along with many iraqi intel dweebs. The truth is out, yes.

jake49 on April 5, 2011 at 4:05 pm

And saddam died gruesomely for it along with many iraqi intel dweebs. The truth is out, yes.

jake49 on April 5, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Was Timothy McVeigh Working for Bin Laden & Al Qaeda?

Steve Cooper on April 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

I’m glad there’s corroborating sources. I wouldn’t want to base my judgment solely on the Saudi Intelligence Service. I mean… isn’t the term “Saudi Intelligence” an oxymoron? :+)

Didn’t Connie Chung get in trouble for reporting an Islamic connection to the bombing in the early hours of the reporting? I wonder where she got the tip from?

There is NO Santa Claus on April 5, 2011 at 4:18 pm

WOW! This is exciting as I am reading the tome RIGHT NOW.

Plus, I find it odd that McVeigh got to not come down for breakfast anymore after just 6 years. That NEVER happens with the US Death Penalty.

Great! And hobo al-Husseini is in my backyard these days.

OCB was an Islam job! READ. THE. BOOK.

Skunky on April 5, 2011 at 4:58 pm

How many federal death row inmates have been executed since McVeigh? The fed really fast tracked his execution. Almost like they were trying to cover their tracks.

Fed Up on April 5, 2011 at 7:12 pm

I always found it strange how fast they killed McVeigh and yet there are cop killers that have spent decades on deathrow…

arby on April 5, 2011 at 7:21 pm

If I was an FBI agent, I would be really pissed off at the FBI. Many agents must have insider knowledge of this info.

Dr Dale on April 5, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Raghead agents couldn’t have had any part. It had to have been all McVeigh. After all, no less a patriot than Bill Clinton blamed Rush Limbaugh & other hate radio hosts for inspiring McVeigh. Yeah, ragheads couldn’t have been behind it since they don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh.

CornCoLeo on April 5, 2011 at 10:43 pm

I remember they were looking for an arab guy who flew from OK to Toronto to Heathrow, disappeared in route and then all of a sudden they paraded McVeigh around as the bomber. Then never mentioned the third guy again.

A fellow Marine friend in EOD, examined the truck bomb remains and said flatly, no way that this guy had the training and experience to build such an effective bomb, their was no waste, it was as perfect as it could be for the materials used. This showed a lot of experience in bomb building which McVeigh and his other partner never had.

ender on April 5, 2011 at 11:03 pm

So when is this “info” going to get into the Wikipedia pages for McVeigh or the OKC Bombing?

JoeN on April 6, 2011 at 2:59 am

Read her book. VERY interesting.

    Ralph Adamo, I will do you the favor of assuming you:
    1. Never heard an echo, nor know how the sounds of shots in Dallas echoed confuzingly.
    2. Never fired a rifle.
    3. Never hunted.
    4. Never fired a rifle at a moving target, crossing left to right.
    If I don’t make thos assumtions I’d have to conclude you are an idiot. Three shots were fired at JFK, all by Oswald. Two hit Kennedy, the final one a head shot that killed him. To imagine a “grassy knoll sniper” fired a rifle at a moving target, crossing left to right, would be a far more difficult shot than Oswald’s, which was above and from the rear. Tell me how a sniper on the grassy knowl could have made this difficult shot AND AVOIDED HITTING MRS. KENNEDY WHO WAS TO HIS IMMEDIATE LEFT? You are a product of the conspiracy theory crackpots, and have no inkling at all why a grassy knoll sniper scenario is impossible.

Mendell on April 6, 2011 at 10:13 pm

If the FBI knew (suspected) Iraq / Islam involvement, doesn’t that beg the question, “What was the real reason we went to war with Iraq?” Was it the WMDs or payback for the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Bldg? Looks like Lucy (FBI) has some splaining to do.

Sparky on April 7, 2011 at 11:22 am

Many of these comments on the “speed” of McVeigh’s trial and execution are right on. Also as a former weapons specialist with some EOD training I do not believe he had the ability to put together this device without assistance. I don’t mean training but hands on help. One thing to remember is that law enforcement personnel will develop a theory through their investigations, submit a report only to have it buried by someone higher in the food chain. Many of those higher ups have their own axe to grind or apple to polish and will not pass on anything that will make them look bad to their superiors. It is the politics of the job to make yourself look like a smart and capable employee. I know of many cases wherein the investigators reports or verbal theories were set aside only to have their “predictions” come true. The supervisor would then have numerous excuses on how the “report” they endorsed got lost. The bad thing is our security and safety depends on this type of information yet mid and high level bureaucrats put us in jeopardy because they don’t want to look as if they are over-reacting. My theory is McVeigh did not work only with Terry Nichols and someone in the law enforcement intelligence community had knowledge of an attack. Maybe not the exact info but some warning. Did it get buried or just not acted upon?

My opinion on April 8, 2011 at 4:08 pm

This morning on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Howard Kurtz said that the information about Iraq being responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing turned out to be wrong. How does he know that? And why isn’t this story all over the news?

Carol on April 10, 2011 at 7:49 pm

Where is this supposed FBI memo ?? until I see it I won’t believe this tale for a second…..if your going to quote the memo you should print it entirely otherwise you are blowing hot air and your story has NO substance.

Chuck on April 13, 2011 at 11:57 am

Some of those who knew fact of the case….. Had unfortunate and untimely death!

joe smith on April 22, 2011 at 9:49 pm

How many people have seen the proof that McVeigh was not only supporting Muslim or Islamic agenda’s but was rapped up in the CIA operative stuff pretty deeply… There is quite a bit of evidence that McVeigh did not act alone and was assisted by people within the CIA establishment. The whole ‘Turner Dairy’ spin was a fabrication created to point fingers at a certain group that McVeigh was undercover in. Something to take a look into I would think.

Brian on November 20, 2011 at 4:31 pm

Has anybody seen a picture of Tims body after execution? I’ve always felt that his supposed execution happened way too fast given how slow our Government works. My personal belief is that Tim is still alive, that he was hidden and taken out of the country to keep him from talking.

Alan Lau on January 19, 2012 at 3:43 am

The only possible muslim contact would of been between Terry Nichols and that Yoseff terrorist that met with him in the Philippines, I believe he figured out that Nichols was a coward and sent JD 2 up here to make sure the bomb was delivered and went off, no thanks to that reporter that sent the police looking for two arab’s in a pick -up truck, gave him a free pass to get away, bet he flew back to the Philippines that day !!!

Pat Livingston on January 6, 2014 at 10:31 pm

No one remembers the Eric Holder was in charge of this investigation. And a FBI informant supplied Timmothy MacViegh was supplied bomb making components to MacViegh. With the FBI’s approval… Thee is a rotten stench in our government.

You really had to be there, hear that blast, that sonic boom.I won’t forget it nor will I forget they chase 3 Muslim men running g Ted lights all the way to the air port in a brown ford pick up were they got a plane to Afghanistan and the feds brought then back and they had bomb books in the suit cases a materials. But yeah the white kid did it and that’s why they killed hI’m so Dam fast because dead men can’t tell lies.
