It would have been more informative if I had written this instead:

"see the Congressional record and the documents put in the Congressional record by Congressman Henry B. Gonzales"

The Congressional Record of President Bush Senior's transfers of technology for weapons of mass destruction to Iraq has been posted on FR several times including last year.

I persoanlly saw Gonzales reading his documents and allegations into the COngressional Record-it was televised. Gonzales accusations and allegations about what Bush Senior did with weapons transfers to Iraq before the Gulf War are also factually and historically accurate.

If I understand the moronic post by our resident loudmouthed broad, we are supposed to assume that the fact that Gonzalez is normally a rather comical figure to watch in congress also means the documents he read into the record must be somehow forged or otherwise wrong. Can you illuminate?

I figure you meant that response for me and not just The Gang Who Can't Think Straight.

Yes, ole Henry Gonzales, the entire US Congress, anyone paying attention and I, all know we gave/sold/transfered weapons to Iraq during the Iran/Iraq War. And we all know why. Just because you don't, is no reason to publish your ignorance for all to see. But then, judging from the quality of this piece, you are probably waaaaaaay past caring about your personal credibility.

Correction noted in capital letters:

"FBI agents were also told not to go INSIDE the Murrah building that morning even though the FBI had 3-4 agents inside the Murrah building everyday very punctually by 9 am and sometimes dropped off children at the day care center."

The distinction is critical because there is evidence that FBI agents were outside the Murrah building the morning of the bombing waiting along with bomb squad members in case anything went wrong (something did go wrong). FBI agents were seen at the scene moments after the bombing, way too soon for the FBI agents to have arrived from the FBI offices 8 miles away or from the golf tournament that FBI SAC Bob Ricks claims he was attending.

FBI agents wives told my wife that FBI agents were told not to go inside the Murrah building that day. The head of Federal Protective Services for the Murrah building, Tom E. Hunt, told me that the FBI had 3-4 agents inside the Murrah building at 9am sharp every day.

These are examples of more details that I left out of the summary to make it shorter and easier to grasp the big picture. I have provided these details in earlier articles I wrote and posted on FR in 2000 and 2001.

A book form rather than a summary would properly record more of these extensive details.

Excellent work, Pat.

I will add a link to a thread that provides links to supporting media reports on the Melvin Lattimore/ Mujahid Menepta connection.

Black Muslim Seen with OKC Bombing John Does?

Of particular interest in the link are replies #26,27,28,29,31,33,44 for supporting news articles.

The motel owner said that Moussaoui and a man who appeared to be Marwan al-Shehhi -- who helped crash a jetliner into the south tower of the World Trade Center -- were friendly and said a few things, but Atta was clearly the leader. "He did most of the talking and seemed very serious," said the owner, adding, "I was standing face to face, about two feet away from Atta, and talked to the three of them for about 10 minutes. Atta asked if he could rent one of the other rooms at a weekly rate, and I told him no.

"I asked him what they were doing here in the area. And Atta told me they were going to flight school. I thought he meant [Federal Aviation Administration] training in Oklahoma City. But Atta told me no, they were taking flight training in Norman.

"I said I didn't understand why they wanted to rent one of my rooms, since we were about 28 miles from Norman and there are a lot of reasonably priced motels a lot closer. But he said they had heard good things about my place and wanted to stay there. I told them I was sorry, but we couldn't accommodate them. Atta finally said okay. Then they all thanked me for my time and left."

After the attacks, said the motel owner, he recognized his visitors in photos from television reports. "I was really stunned," he said. Then he decided to call the FBI hot line. The motel owner said he didn't hear right back from the FBI. In the interim, he also spoke to a former law-enforcement officer who was investigating reported sightings of Mujahid Abdulquaadir Menepta at the same motel during the mid-1990s. Menepta, reportedly a friend of Moussaoui's, was arrested 30 years ago in Colorado for aggravated robbery and served more than three years in prison.

After September 11, Menepta publicly defended Moussaoui, calling him a "scapegoat." The FBI arrested him as a material witness and subsequently charged Menepta with a federal gun violation. He pleaded guilty and in April 2002 was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. He was never charged with any terrorism-related crime. But during the preliminary hearing on the gun charge, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Agent Jeffrey Whitney testified that a confidential source placed Menepta at a meeting of a radical Islamic group in St. Louis where he allegedly threatened to shoot any police officer who entered the mosque. Menepta's attorney challenged the credibility of this report in court.

A former desk clerk at the motel -- a different clerk from the one who purportedly dealt with Atta and Moussaoui -- told the Weekly that he remembered Menepta because in 1994 and 1995 -- prior to the Oklahoma City attack -- Menepta frequently visited the motel office. There, he bought coffee and talked for hours to this clerk.

The clerk and his wife, who both formerly worked at the motel, said they picked Menepta's picture out of a photo lineup prepared by a law-enforcement officer who had interviewed the motel owner.

Why not do what you're told and go read the transcripts? But read the whole thing. Then you'll understand why weapons were given to Iraq during their war with Iran.

But, then, anyone who dismisses Gonzales as "normally a rather comical figure to watch", really doesn't have the ability to comprehend what he sees.

And you can go ahead and respond to me directly. I try not to hurt snivlers cowering in the corner.

Mideast link to car bomb appears to fade; TERROR IN THE HEART OF AMERICA
The San Francisco Examiner NEWS; Pg. A-17
April 21, 1995, Friday; Second Edition

excerpts from the article........

Three men of Middle Eastern extraction were detained and questioned by authorities in Dallas and Oklahoma City Thursday after media reports said the license plates of the car they were driving may be linked to a truck associated with the bombing.

But by day's end, officials discounted their significance to the Oklahoma City case. "It's not as strong as we initially thought it was," one said.

One of the three detained men, since released, told his story to the Associated Press.

Anis Siddiqy, 24, a cab driver from New York City, said his brother, Asad R. Siddiqy, 27, and an acquaintance, Mohammed Chafi, were in Oklahoma City seeking immigration documents for an emergency return to their Mideast homeland when they were arrested Wednesday.
Siddiqy said he needed the documents to get home because of a family matter. He refused to be more specific or identify his Mideast homeland.

Siddiqy said he was arrested Wednesday at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport while trying to rent a car so he could join the others in Oklahoma City.

Earlier that day, police raided an apartment in Dallas that was being rented by two of the men. A copy of a search warrant left in the apartment showed that a black bag, containing clothing, a calendar and an address book was seized.

The items were sent to a federal lab for testing after a bomb -sniffing dog indicated they may have been exposed to chemicals used in explosives, officials said.

The man's two acquaintances were picked up Wednesday night soon after they had asked an Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer for directions. The tag number recorded from their vehicle by the trooper was allegedly traced to a blue Chevrolet Cavalier rented by one of the men from National Car Rental at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, a law enforcement official said.

The Cavalier was found with one of the men Thursday morning at an Oklahoma City motel, the official said.

The man said he was questioned for 16 hours and given a lie-detector test before being released Thursday. Chafi was also released Thursday, but his older brother remained in custody.

Federal officials have denied that suspects were taken into custody in Dallas.

Dallas police spokesman Jim Spencer referred requests for comment to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

CNN said the three men suspects had stopped to ask an Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer for directions Wednesday, and the officer was suspicious enough to write down their car's license plate number. The license number was registered to a rental car -- a car other than what the men were driving, the network said.

In New York, a law enforcement source told The Associated Press that one of the three, Asad R. Siddiqy of New York, was a suspect in the bombing. Siddiqy is a cab driver in the borough of Queens.

CNN said Siddiqy was arrested in Dallas, along with Mohammed Chafi. The network said a brother of Siddiqy was arrested in Oklahoma.

I think the part that amazes me the most about this whole disagusting affair is ......Didn't the FBI have any idea that other people would see the men walking around in coveralls with the building blueprints.

These had to have been the guys who planted the other explosives.

I am not overly optimistic that Congress will adequately change or debate the failed FBI connivance policies since Congress has known about and has been ratifying the FBI policies for years.

With Ashcroft as our AG, you have very solid reasons not to be optimistic at all.
