Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 7 Num. 44

("Quid coniuratio est?")


By Sherman H. Skolnick

More and more details are showing up. That there was U.S. government complicity, and prior knowledge, in the bombings in Oklahoma City. And we call it bombings, in the plural, because just one bomb did not do all the damage to Murrah Federal Office Building. There are witnesses to the following:

  1. Three or more teams of men were seen that morning, prior to the bombings, in or near Oklahoma City, dressed in all "government black", operating "hoops", that is, circular-shaped, radio beacon directional finders. A beeper on the truck with Timothy McVeigh and others was sending signals picked up by the hoops being operated by agents of the U.S. Treasury's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire-Arms [BATF].

    About 3 or 4 a.m. that morning, April 19, 1995, there was a "loose tail", slang to describe the double agent on the truck turning off the concealed beeper sending out the signal being tracked.

  2. BATF agents were out tracking the truck that morning. Did they know in advance exactly which federal facility was the target? Some claim they did know but that there was some confusion. The Murrah Building was a sitting duck -- no security or protection. When forced by public pressure, espionage operations sometimes relent, and come out with what is called a "limited hang-out", part of the truth but continuing to conceal really revealing the whole truth.

    So, someday, if forced, the BATF may seek to explain away why their people were not in their offices when the bombs went off. They were out, they may some day claim, tracking the truck, part of a "sting" operation to catch ultra-right wing bombers, mad about the Waco, Texas incident of two years prior, mad about the central government. Some now claim, however, that the Murrah Building, site of the BATF's offices, was the target of the "sting".

  3. The truck bomb was apparently part of a BATF "sting" operation. It would not be much news if the BATF, using their "hoops", if the truck was apprehended and the drivers and team were arrested way out on some highway somewhere. The BATF wanted the massive publicity of arresting them right near the targeted building. The BATF reportedly lost track of the truck when the double agent turned off the concealed beeper on the truck.
  4. Among those seen supervising the bomb truck were an identified former German national, tight with Neo-Nazis in Nebraska and in Germany. And he was close as well with the German Secret Police, equivalent of the American C.I.A. (Note: in previous exclusive stories, we told you how German Counter-Intelligence became aware of the three-man Mid-East team, residing temporarily in Germany, who arranged the death and/or murdered Clinton White House deputy counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., 1993.) [CN -- See, for example, CN 4.82 regarding a possible German link to Foster's strange death.]
  5. Another identified supervisor of the bomb truck (and of possibly the over-all double-bombing project) is reportedly an officer of Iraqi Intelligence. Did he defect to the West before or after the Persian Gulf War? At the time of the bombings in Oklahoma, was he, as a defector, under the direct supervision and surveillance of the American CIA?

    Keep in mind: Corrupt top officials in the Reagan and Bush administration stole Inslaw's PROMIS software, with its built-in Trojan Horse "trap door" and gave it, as a bargaining chip, or sold it, to a number of foreign intelligence agencies, including Iraq -- so American intelligence agencies have been in a position to spy on Iraq and others.

    Also keep in mind: suppressed by the western press has been the close weapons deals between Germany and Iraq, including machinery and technology to manufacture chemical and biological weapons, including poison gas.

  6. The BATF had reason to know that boxes of bombs, disguised as copy machine paper, had been already placed up against the pillars in the Murrah Building (and similar packages, apparently, up against the pillars and/or other key structural components of other federal facilities as well).

    When the truck bomb went off, the pillar bombs also went off a few seconds later, triggered by remote detonators, either pressure or electronic signal.

  7. In a previous exclusive story, we told you how the Chief Investigative Reporter of a new "radical" magazine is reportedly a counter-intelligence agent for the U.S. government, Lawrence W. Myers. His specialty, according to books he has written, is the making of bombs, and remote detonators for explosives. His books are published by a reputed CIA-proprietary, called Palladin Press, publishers of books for mercenaries. Palladin is also closely aligned with another reputed CIA-proprietary, Soldier of Fortune Magazine.

    Myers has written stories which some believe are disinformation about McVeigh and help sink him further as the "lone bomber". Media Bypass Magazine, supposedly printing "uncensored news", has been sheltering Myers, a reputed spook. WHY? Myers is reportedly an operative of the super-secret Delta Force, engaged in political assassinations, etc.

  8. Sort of like Lee Harvey Oswald, McVeigh believes himself to be a government agent, part of a secret project. Like Oswald, McVeigh reportedly claims he was not told what the project was really all about and has been trapped, "framed", and made a patsy, to cover up high-level U.S. government complicity and prior knowledge, and also, possibly, BATF and Justice Department bungling.
  9. Reputed spook Myers reportedly obstructed the Federal Grand Jury in Oklahoma investigating the bombings. He reportedly pushed out into the open a grand juror who was seeking to persuade fellow grand jurors to go further in demanding additional data from federal authorities, which might have shown complicity and prior knowledge by the government. Myers' acts and doings reportedly caused that grand juror to be removed from the Grand Jury and threatened by a judge with sanctions such as arrest. Myers acts and doings reportedly favor the government version of the bombings.

Paraphrasing an old saying, Let the truth be told, though the government crumbles.

Mr. Skolnick wishes to add that he sees a possible link between Xerox Corporation and boxes used to hold the bombs placed against the pillars in the Murrah Building. (See #6, above.) "Specifically, it was Xerox brand that was reportedly sent in and put next to the pillars in Murrah Building," says Skolnick. He adds that "for many years (up until just recently), Xerox Company ran a facility near Leesburg, Virginia, for the CIA. Namely, the Xerox Company trained new CIA officers at their facility."

Skolnick points out that "Xerox boxes are well-designed boxes. People like to keep those boxes after the paper's emptied out and use 'em for storing office supplies or other office records. And you see those boxes. Therefore, those boxes, piled near the pillars of the building that was blown up, wouldn't arouse attention..."

To me this seems a tenuous link. However to those closely looking into the April 19, 1995 tragedy, any and all leads may be significant.

Mr. Skolnick also points to statements made by Debra von Trapp regarding Xerox during an interview with her, by Skolnick, in May of 1995. For example, CN 4.84 has von Trapp stating as follows:

Yes. As an outside consultant to Xerox Corporation, I was selecting foreign management for a division called Shugart back in the early '80s in Germany, when I discovered that the Shugart division of Xerox was, in fact, bringing disk drives -- which were manufactured by [Matshusta(?)] in Japan -- they were manufactured there, brought into Sunnyvale, California, labeled for Shugart, and then sent to the Shugart Munich facility in Germany, where, after having been received under Cocomm(?) freight documents (which were legally forwarded in the U.S.), the freight documents were then changed to show that they were forwarded to destinations at Olivetti, Italy and a company in France (which were legal trading partners of the U.S.) when, in fact, the sales records were being changed and ultimately destroyed by the Shugart employees -- allegedly, for tax evasion purposes. But, in fact, the [disk] drives were being put on trucks and sent into the East Bloc, to an entity called IsoTempex(sp?); they were selling to the KGB.
