Someone was asking about this recently
Thanks for the ping.
Also, Norman Oklahoma is not that far from another terrorist bombing that had middle eastern connections--the OKC bombing. I didn't realize just how close Norman is to OKC until I checked the map.
The presence of terrorists in the area goes back earlier than 1993.
Damn! I hadn't even HEARD about this.
Ms. Jacobson might want to contact Ms. Davis and compare notes.
Just for S&Gs, and possibly tips on basic survival techniques.
It is. It's just not PC. The American people better wake up now - before it's too late.
How do these people get cushy government jobs so easily? Who are their sponsors? What were their qualifications? Exactly why were they hired? Sure seems strange to me that they both worked in State department of transportation offices in Oklahoma and Texas. I have to wonder just what the ramifications are of a confirmed terrorist (Abdulqader) working in these offices.
Ummm...we cannot discriminate in this country, remember? The Islamists said "We will use their democracy to destroy their democracy." And that is precisely what they are attempting to do. They are infiltrating every institution in this country.
I'm just an ignorant peasant, who am I to question my government?
"The presence of terrorists in the area goes back earlier than 1993."
After the fall of Iran, many iranians moved to Norman. At the time, it seemed like a lot. But maybe that is the way it was elsewhere too. Huge racial tension during the hostage crisis. Many iranians couldn't understand the racism because they were escaping from the Shiite muslims also because they thrived under the Shah. Maybe there never was a full integration of cultures and thus causing it to be a breeding ground of discontent. Who knows. I do know that one family did extremely well and their company is like the second largest homebuilder in the state and they are headquartered in Norman.
Read the book "Infiltration"......scary!
You mean the lone, suicide bomber that the Norman PD had to take the contents of his car and apartment to the bomb disposal area in about 18 trips because if they had done it all at once it would have taken out a city block if it exploded? Then it rattled windows all over Norman with a loud blast including mine which is about five miles away. I was in that stadium that night when the bomb went off and you could see the puff of smoke rising from the "lone" suicide bomber that didn't want to hurt anyone. (sarcasm)
There is much more to this story but when you cannot get two sources on record, the story dies.
There was also said to be a large contingent of Saddam's Republican Guard that went to Oklahoma after the first Gulf War.
You have contributed a great deal to these threads. At least some of us know some of what went on. And have suspicions as to the rest.
Many former military men in the Shah's Iran moved to areas in the USA near military bases, particularly Air Force Bases. Some former officers had jobs with the military. This is true of Lubbuck, (Reese AFB) Texas and other N. Texas and Oklahoma bases. Norman has a US NAVAL AIR STATION
