Paul Craig Roberts
Craig Roberts (yes, there are two of us) is a former US Marine and a 27-year veteran of the Tulsa, Oklahoma, police force. He is a capable and committed person. Since 1989 he has written 13 books. His latest, just published, Medusa File II, consists essentially of his volumnious files of the investigation of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19th, 1995, known as “the Oklahoma City Bombing.” https://www.amazon.com/Medusa-File-II-Politics-Oklahoma/dp/1547027843/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1503780098&sr=1-2&keywords=Craig+Roberts
The FBI, appreciative of Roberts’ capabilities, requested his service in the investigation. As officially part of the investigation, he took the investigation seriously. The investigation proceded rapidly, developing many leads. Numerous witnesses saw Timothy McVeigh with many dark complexioned men prior to and just after the bombing. Leads were also developed to militias in Elohim City, to the German, Strassmeir, and others.
Before any of these leads could be developed, the investigation was taken over by President Bill Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno. Once Washington took over, the investigation stopped. In its place was Washington’s theory that it was Tim McVeigh’s lonely protest. The volumnious evidence of McVeigh’s accomplices or controllers, as might have been the case, was in the way of the official story that imposed itself on the investigation and was not warranted by the investigation. Many people resisted the coverup that descended on the case, including local journalists who eventually lost their jobs or moved on.
Roberts stuck it out to the end. So did black Oklahoma City Police sgt. Terrance Yeakey, For resisting the official story Yeakey paid with his life. Roberts provides the reasons he believes Yeakey had definitive evidence that the official story was a coverup. the OCPD was called off once the official story was in place, but Yeakey wouldn’t quit and became a problem. The official OCPD report says it was suicide, but Roberts recognizes homicide when he sees it. There was no autopsy and the police refused to release the police report to Yeakey’s family. Remaining skeptics were dismissed as “conspiracy theorists,” and that was the end of the case.
One of the striking details that Roberts provides is that in the immediate aftermath of the bombing with rescue workers removing dead and wounded from the rubble, numerous federal agents appeared, ordered the rescue workers out of the building on the grounds that there were still unexploded bombs in the building. Then with the trapped still under the rubble, all rescue efforts halted until the federal agents had removed file cabinets from the building. Roberts speculates that the cabinets contained the files of the Mena drug running operation that many believe involved Arkansas governor Bill Clinton, and that President Clinton and Janet Reno didn’t want these files to see the light of day.
For an official explanation of the case that relies solely on McVeigh’s “truck bomb,” the federal agents’ statement that unexploded bombs remained in the building is a conundrum. If there were unexploded bombs remaining in the building, how could it be that McVeigh was the lone wolf perpetrator? It reminded me of General Benton Partin, a US Air Force explosive expert, who produced a detailed report proving that the Murrah building blew up from the inside out, not from the outside in. Of course, by the time Gen. Partin got his study completed, the fix was in, and there was to be no challenge to, or reconsidering of, the official cover story.
Roberts doesn’t know who did the bombing or why. All he knows is that leads were not followed and the case was solved by Washington and not by an investigation.
Just like the assassination of JFK.
Just like the assassination of RFK.
Just like the assassination of Martin Luther King.
Just like 9/11.
Just like Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction.”
Just like “Iranian nukes.”
Just like the “Gulf of Tonkin.”
Just like Gaddafi and Libya.
Just like Assad’s “use of chemical weapons.”
Just like . . .
It is endless, isn’t it?
This excellent book sheds the light of truth on the 1995 disaster in Oklahoma City. Just as importantly, it connects many dots from the JFK assassination; to the Clinton collusion with CIA drug running in Mena, AR; to the events of 911.
This history clearly raises compelling and legitimate questions about the criminal leadership in our Government. Moreover, this is NOT just interesting history, but gives us a window into exactly what is still going on within all our alphabet agencies including the Justice Department and the FBI!
To my way of thinking, there is also a giant factor of courage here! Given the level of revelations, with all supporting names, dates and places, I would imagine Craig still keeps looking over his shoulder! Near the end of Chapter 27 he does point out one of the best ways to protect yourself is to write a book. If they were then to kill you, or cause you to disappear, they would only be adding credence to what you had written. This would not give me restful sleep -- the Clintons' and other Communist Democrats are still killing people!
The entire book reaches epic standards of journalism, especially in chapters twenty-two through twenty-seven. Here, tied together, is all the careful and detailed research into a masterful conclusion!
Craig also offers hope in the Epilogue, that with new leadership in Washington Draining the Swamp, many things once buried in the muck will surface and those responsible will be held accountable. I personally think this is the reason for panic on the Left, and in the media that "carried their water"!
As Yogi said, "It ain't over 'til it's over"
Yep, this book is a winner, and like all Craig's books, I give it Five Stars!
Robert Lee Rohrer, USMC Veteran and Proud to know Craig!
Author Craig Roberts produced an encyclopedic book that should become an American classic, that is, when studying or trying to understand the involvement, chicanery, and outright participation by a number of our better known lettered agencies, who were involved in most of the above incidents. These included some of our unresolved historical disasters and other questionable events. It is not just the seemingly endless lists of names, dates, places of individuals and suspects, but also the confusing involvement and interference and interdiction between those in the various government agencies like the CIA, DEA, DIA, FBI, and even within our armed forces such as the Black OPS operators within the Green Berets and other Special Operations groups.
If they allowed the choice I would rate this book with 6 gold stars! .
