Most members of the mainstream news media consider the investigation into the Oklahoma City Bombing closed and have, for the most part, stopped writing about it. And then there are people like me and Wes Vernon, a Washington, D.C.-based writer and veteran broadcast journalist who writes for Renew America. I think it’s safe to say, both of us believe the final chapter about the bombing is yet to be written.
I’ve written nearly two-dozen posts on the subject during the past four years, including my most-recent effort, Federal Judge Orders FBI to Answer Questions About Missing Oklahoma City Bombing Videotapes, as has Vernon. Perhaps most important among his pieces, however, are four of his most-recent efforts which I offer as “recommended reading”:
On March 24, he published a post, Oklahoma City Bombing — the return of “the third terrorist” But will he get away again? It focuses on the plight of one Hussain Al-Hussaini, the Middle Eastern man suspected of being “the third terrorist” involved in the bombing along with Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.
On March 28, he published a post, Exclusive: Will Congress (at last, officially) solve the mystery of ‘the third terrorist’ in Oklahoma City? In it, Vernon breathes new life into issues that opened, but were never closed, during the first decade after the bombing.
On April 14, he published a post, Oklahoma City bomber threatened within prison walls? In this post, he points to newly-released FBI documents and the appearance of what he describes as “cover ups on several fronts.”
On May 12, he published a post, ‘Third Terrorist’ indicted — hears strange ‘voices’, In this post, he shares a bombshell: Al-Hussaini’s comments to his therapist suggest there is much he knows about the Oklahoma City bombing that he has not revealed to the authorities — and about which the FBI has avoided asking him.
Not one to spoil another writer’s work, I strongly recommend you read Vernon’s posts above and stay tuned to our multifaceted coverage of this subject matter. Sooner or later, I predict, a “big shoe” will drop.
