Government Releases Report on Failures of FBI Related to OKC Bombing

The FBI failed to fully investigate information suggesting other suspects may have helped Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, allowing questions to linger more than a decade after the deadly attack, a congressional inquiry concludes.

The House International Relations investigative subcommittee will release the findings of its two-year-review as early as Wednesday, declaring there is no conclusive evidence of a foreign connection to the attack but that far too many unanswered questions remain.

Well, in typical government fashion, they've managed to take an extraordinary amount of time and spend a good deal of money to arrive at a handful of half-conclusions that have been present in scholarly spheres for some time.


The conspiracy community has had a great interest in the OKC bombing, and some of the information stumbled upon by congressional investigators has been making the rounds online for a while now.

Rohrabacher's report cites several leads the subcommittee believes were not fully investigated, including:

* Information that McVeigh called a German citizen living at a white supremacist compound in Oklahoma two weeks before the bombing and that two witnesses saw the men together before the bombing.

* Witness accounts that another man was seen with McVeigh around the time of the bombing. The FBI originally looked for another suspect it named John Doe 2, even providing a sketch, but abruptly dropped that line of inquiry. The subcommittee concludes that decision was a mistake.

This stuff is old news to the conspiracy theorists interested in the case, and it would have been truly amazing if the investigators excercised due dilligence in regards to these elements of the story.

Anyway, I posted this article because I found it pretty interesting, and the mention of these unanswered questions (particularly the German gentleman) in the MSM was a bit of a surprise.

What do you think, is there still hope for a reckoning? Will the truth about OKC ever make it to the public?
