Did Brutus Act Alone?

I’ve stated before, I’m a believer in the conspiracy theory of history.  Not that all heinous acts (like political assassinations) are accomplished by groups, with accessories-after-the-fact to cover it up, but that some are, and we need to continue to look at all such acts and their aftermaths to determined what actually happened.  Who were the participants?  What were the motivations? And most importantly:

QUI BONO?  (Who benefits?)

(from Clayton Cramer)

July 28, 2014 Houston Chronicle reports that a case is going forward concerning whether the FBI is withholding evidence:

He says the FBI won’t release videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people.

The government says McVeigh was alone.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups sent the case to trial after remaining unsatisfied with the FBI’s responses in the five years since the lawsuit was filed.

This is a very interesting case.  I was glad that McVeigh admitted his guilt in this matter because from reading the transcripts of his trial, it is pretty clear that the federal prosecutor failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that McVeigh did it.  There was certainly evidence that supported that claim, but it is was not spectacularly impressive, and McVeigh’s defense attorney Stephen Jones did a spectacular job of poking big gaping holes in the government’s claims.  Perhaps the most important is the questions raised about the leftover leg.  (Did 168 people die in this tragedy, or 169?  The leftover leg raised some serious questions.)

The claim that a second person was involved was based on eyewitness reports (which are often unreliable) and the FBI’s initial attempts to locate a second person of interest (of Middle Eastern appearance).   There have long been questions about whether there might have been Iraqi involvement in this bombing.  McVeigh’s partner, Terry Nichols was in a Philippines hotel at the same time as some of the people involved in the first World Trade Center bombing, such as Ramzi Youssef, and by some accounts, actually met with him. (…)

I know there has always been conspiratorial chatter about such events, in part because our collective psyches don’t want to believe one man is capable of such horror.

But sometimes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

  1. I have never believed that Nichols and McVeigh put that bomb together. An expert did it for them. Middle Eastern?

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
