Evidence Suppressed by Government Proves: Rigged Grand Jury,
Controlled Media, Wider Conspiracy, McVeigh's Defense Guided
to Assure Conviction as Fall Guy for Government Terrorism
FEMA Situation Report and many other official documents and eye witness statements prove the existence of multiple bombs - including evidence of TWO blasts 4.2 seconds apart. This makes it impossible for McVeigh to have acted alone. The only logical reason for government, media, and the legal system to knowingly suppress evidence is to protect one of its own.

Timothy McVeigh as Patsy, Front Man, Cutout, and Possible Mind Control Victim

A patsy is someone set up to take the fall for a crime in someone else's place. A Front Man is someone who is the visible point of transactional authority within a criminal conspiracy, who is actually working for invisible persons who are really in charge. A Cutout is someone who, if compromised or caught doing wrong cannot or will not implicate others who are involved, typically because they do not know the facts needed. The question is, did Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols act as a minor conspiracy, or is McVeigh the intended patsy, front man, and cutout. This section attempts to answer this question with a slightly modified excerpt from Volume 2000, Issue 1 of my quarterly, The Professional Paranoid Newsletter(ask for a free sample copy), a piece entitled Something Odd About McVeigh

The notion that Tim McVeigh is the Oswald of our time, a throw-away patsy served up for public focus while the true villains smirk in the shadows... haunts a number of civilian skeptics of government's case. From the perspective of someone who is investigating the OK bombing as a conspiracy involving military units and doing so with an understanding of mind control technology, I am not the first to wonder if McVeigh was not a victim of a particular type of CIA developed mind control.

If true, it would be the same kind of technology applied on Sirhan Sirhan, and perhaps Oswald - tech based on multiple personality disorder (MPD, now also called DID, or Disassociative Identity Disorder.) The CIA's Monarch program created large numbers of MPD 'programmables' through the application of Ritual Sexual Abuse (RSA - the 'S' can also stand for Satanic.) This project which was perhaps at its height in 1970-77, using 5-10 yr old children as victims intended to become future programmable adult operatives. McVeigh is 33 years old. Do the math. I'll wait.

More important than this coincidental matter is that a programmed MPD Delta type (often used in military operations bearing the same name) has a number of inner 'alter' personalities which are given very specific assignments. One assignment is to play the role of watchdog intent on preventing the outer self from doing or saying anything that might go against the programming. Typically, this manifests as forced disassociation. That is, the outer persona is 'forced' by the alter to suddenly veer attention away from the taboo to some safer matter. The other common ploy is to have false memories replace real memories, making it impossible to get useful information out of the suspect - Sirhan Sirhan being prime example. If McVeigh is a cut out and front man, a true patsy intended to isolate a larger conspiracy from attention in the investigative process, the best way to assure his role fulfilled would be if he were a hand-picked and trained Delta programmable operative.

I have had the opportunity to review roughly two dozen letters from McVeigh to various reporters and writers, all of which were intended to answer specific questions about the bombing. The letters are 100% the same in style and content. The first paragraph gets the usual greeting out of the way, and the second gets to the meat. Yet after the very first sentence defining the intent to talk about a specific on Oklahoma (itself not very revealing), disassociation instantly takes grip. The paragraph ends clumsily, and rest of the wordy letters shifts to and remains on television and movie programming . No actual bombing information escapes. Every single time: disassociation. This is a Delta trademark.

Interesting thought to ponder: If McVeigh dies and there is a conspiracy, the only first-hand knowledge of the truth available to us dies with him. As a programmable, the death wish is a natural result of alter programming, all serving an unseen master's interests. A Delta easily accepts death as a preferable alternative to contributing to the understanding of truth. For these reasons, I for one am glad his execution has been stayed, and further pray that the FBI documents recently exposed to public scrutiny will help us get closer to the truth, and perhaps force a new trial where the full body of evidence is heard, not just evidence manufactured, tampered with, or suppressed. 

That caustic accusation stems from the simple fact that no quantity of explosives of the type claimed to have been used by McVeigh could account for the nature of the damage actually found in the Murrah building. The FBI has reinvented the laws of physics. These are not new charges, and they are well documented on the Web and even in the public record. For some reason, no one wants to ask why the scientific evidence does not add up to the new math applied by FBI. I for one, do.

End of article. Now for something entirely different, obtained from Timothy McVeigh's Writ of mandamus (a defense motion filed early after his arrest.) The document is massive, and worthy of reading as it claims innocence and attempts to lay the blame for the blast on foreign nationals, including one Andreas Strassmier as mentioned earlier, and mentioning Iraq as a possible enemy state - a classic disinformation technique of providing clues and leads in every direction. But what is most compelling in the mandamus is related to the current FBI pickle (to borrow from CIA's nickname as 'pickle factory') born of the 'recently discovered' 3,000 pages which are the basis of McVeigh's stay of execution. If you have failed to understand the significance of the 3,000 pages in all of the media knit picking, it is simply this: prosecution is required by law, in order to insure a fair trial, to make available to defense all information at its disposal regarding an investigation. To fail to do so can result in a conviction being overturned and require a new trial to take place.

So we might listen very carefully to Louis Freeh when he very painstakingly explains how this slight error came to be - essentially a series of little mistakes in procedure, nothing a good computer expert and some basic training classes can't fix. From the mandamus, we get a slightly different picture of FBI's 'policy' in the matter, one which Freeh would probably prefer the public did not associate with the 3,000 pages. The mandamus quote starts by stating that McVeigh's defense team was continually uncovering evidence of FBI's deliberate withholding of information, and ends with an example which is rather important to any implications of a larger conspiracy:

...the Defendant has made a substantial investigation and has produced volumes of evidence and specifications of materiality to the district court ex parse, in camera and on some occasions in open court or in camera with the prosecutors. The government's reaction has consistently been first to deny, then to produce a scant amount of information as the Defendant files formal motions, then to produce a little bit more just before the hearing, then to deny the existence of anything else, then when the 'anything else' surfaces, grudgingly to admit that it has been found. See D.E. 1918 at 6-35. There is no better example of this than the government's submission to the defense in January, 1996 of a two-page FBI Insert of a conversation with Carol Howe in which she is not identified by her last name and every proper noun, including Dennis Mahon, Andreas Strassmeir, Eloheim City, and the Reverend Robert Millar, is grotesquely misspelled so that it could not reasonably be found. 

Then, when this information surfaced, the government informed the Court that Ms. Howe had been an ATF informant until a date several weeks prior to April 19, 1995. See Transcript of Scheduling and Rule 17.1 Conference--Sealed, January 29, 1997, at 67. Then, when the defense discovered that in fact she had continued to be an informant after the bombing, the government acknowledged to the Court that in fact she had been an ATF informant in late April and early May 1995 and had been sent back to Eloheim City.

The New Math and New Physics: FBI's Impossible Bomb 

There are a number of problems with FBI's claim that 1) McVeigh and Nichols acted in a minor conspiracy (no wider conspiracy exists.); 2) That they produced and used a home-made ANFO bomb which was by itself able to destroy Murrah;  3) That there was no evidence to dispute these facts.  In point of fact, in order to make these claims, FBI would have to reinvent the sciences of both mathematics and physics, all of which manifest as changes in the laws of physics.  They were only able to do this with the specific cooperation of media, demonstrating once more that Goebels was right, and FBI and Co. have learned his lesson well.  Too bad the rest of America didn't.

New Physics Rule One:  A single explosion = two shock waves.

The most interesting example of FBI's new math and physics is the assumption that a single explosion will produce two blasts 4.2 seconds apart.  You didn't read or hear about the 4.2 seconds in the media?  A few did actually mention it, but only once, never daring to ask the significance.  That's odd, because multiple eye witnesses, two audio tape recordings taken within blocks of the blast, and an official State Geological Survey seismic recorder collectively prove exactly 4.2 seconds transpired between two consecutive blasts.  Again, find more such  proofs at Michael Rivero's site. Imagine that.  Two blasts with one bomb.  Thus goes FBI's new math and physics.

New Physics Rule Two:  27 psi is enough to destroy a reinforced column
'And the big, bad wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house down...î 

Just the blast damage alone, as military explosives expert, USAF Brigadier General Benton Partin, Ret., former head of the USAF Weapons Development Center reveals, demonstrates that either multiple explosives were placed inside the building (his theory being unaware of CIA's METC bomb technology), or something like an extremely well-shaped high-velocity blast (such as METC affords) was used. As seen below in Partin's graphic, it is impossible for any fertilizer bomb to have done what is claimed by FBI and its seemingly willing partner, media. Note the red arrow added by me to Partin's graphic - a column support beam destroyed by a blast wave pressure (27 psi) approximately equal to atmospheric pressure. That's a bit like walking up to a building and, taking breath, blowing it down. This is chiefly why FBI kept having to increase the amount of explosives required, something they did so frequently that many observers lost count.  The final estimate by FBI is near 5000 lbs, and that is what Partin's calculations are based upon - clearly still not enough.

According to the mandamus... 'The government alleges that Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh purchased two tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer from a farm cooperative in McPherson, Kansas. See Indictment at 3, 4. The government's theory is that the 4,000 lbs. of ammonium nitrate purchased at the McPherson Co-Op was used as a component of the bomb that destroyed the Murrah Building. See D.E. 2166 at 9 (Hersely Grand Jury at 45). Two separate purchases are alleged--one on September 30, 1994 and another on October 18, 1994.'  So FBI cannot use a higher estimate because the records on purchases prohibit it - and so does the physical capacity of the Ryder truck. Thus goes the New Math and Physics of FBI.

Blast Overpressure Chart From General Ben Partin's Report

New Physics Rule Three:  Bombs ignore anything but the intended target

The free standing light pole demonstrates the absurdity of FBI's claims.  A light pole has very little structural strength, typically something any group of high-school kids can bring down by hand if dedicated.  The load-bearing reinforced interior structural columns of a building, however, are of an entirely different matter, something that generally requires explosives charges placed directly in contact for a demolition crew to bring down a building.  At Murrah, such a column and such a light pole were each approximately the same distance from the bomb crater.  Yet according to FBI, the blast did destroy the column.  The FBI ignored civilian commentary about the impossibility for the light pole to withstand the blast, answering instead by removing the pole.  Local media immediately stopped showing images which included the pole, and threatened to sue Web sites such as Michael Rivero's for showing prior images with the pole 'because they were copyrighted.'  For media such as the Daily Oklahoman, Copyrights are apparently far more important than news, or the truth.

Only one kind of bomb can be aimed at a specific target and do little damage to things not in the aimed path.  They are called shaped charges.  There are a number of things in a bomb design which can 'shape' the blast, and McVeigh states he applied the simplest (arrangement of the barrels of explosive material in a semi-circle).  This would shape the charge somewhat, but in a homemade blast, the diversion of forces would be minimal.  Relative to the light pole's relatively 'soft target' nature compared to the 'hard target' nature of the column, the pole should still have died.  Remember, nothing was left of the truck much larger that a kid could pick up.  For the pole to have survived, the whole side of the truck nearest it should have peeled away rather than disintegrated.  The only kind of shaped charge that will do what is seen here would require a much more sophisticated device than a home-made bomb.  Thus goes the new math and physics of FBI.

New Physics Rule Four:  Gravity ceases to have effect when McVeigh manufactures bombs
But there is another interesting problem with home-made bombs based on ANFO technology. The mixture has to be fresh or the performance of the blast diminishes rapidly with time. The heavier materials in the solution tend to settle to form a sludge at the bottom of the container, while the thinner rises to the top like cream in milk. According to a Time Magazine article (May 1, 1995) on How Garden-Variety Fertilizer Becomes Killer Bombs by Christine Gorman, 'That kind of home-made brew can be difficult to work with... Moreover, it is almost impossible for amateurs to mix thoroughly the ammonium nitrate with the fuel oil.... Clumps of ammonium nitrate will fail to detonate...' And, with a percentage of the bomb failing to explode, there is lost energy - not taken into account by FBI's estimates. 

The same Time article talked about a what happened in California one morning in 1990, '...when a disgruntled engineer detonated a truck filled with 2,000 lbs. of his own batch of ANFO outside a branch office of the Internal Revenue Service. Fortunately, only a fraction of the compounds in the vehicle exploded, and no one was killed.' The blast was ineffective because of mixing problems. The photograph of the building above was provided to me by a former employee who did special work for military intelligence related projects. It shows the University of Wisconson Army Math Building, which was hit with a 2,000 lb ANFO bomb parked immediately adjacent. Again, unexploded ANFO is credited for causing so little structural damage (compared to OKC) that the building was easily repaired to the form seen here. Clearly, there are problems with FBI's ANFO explanation. Thus the new math and physics of FBI... along with the following related Rule...

New Physics Rule Five:  Home-made bombs combust completely and leave no evidence only when in Oklahoma

The same Time article explains further the significance of failing to explode completely 'Clumps of ammonium nitrate will fail to detonate - leaving investigators with good clues about the materials used to make the bomb.' McVeigh testified, and FBI collaborates the fact that he spent the night resting after long day of mixing the bomb chemicals, and then drove the truck to its final place on earth in one piece very early the next morning. If he did not take the time to either open and remix the drums, or to at least invert and 'shake well before using' (tough to do at several hundred lbs. each) the quality of the explosion would be severely hampered by the settling process, at least 16-20 hours worth for the first-mixed barrels, based on what we know. FBI's calculations do not take this into consideration. No one has bothered to take it into consideration. Why? Because they dare not. There would not be enough damage done. Yet they report no evidence of clumps of unexploded ANFO materials as found in the '2,000 lb' blasts cited above. Why? Was it because the pellet-mixed commercial-grade version of explosive was used in OKC? If so, McVeigh did not make the bomb, but someone else did, someone with special equipment and facilities.  Thus the new math and physics of FBI.  And remember, media challenged not.

Multiple Secret Pentagon Reports Confirm Partin

Still doubt the multiple bomb conspiracy?  After all, the government and media crucified General Partin for 'interfering with the investigation' with his 'unsubstantiated charges based on conspiracy theory hypotheticals'.  So why should we believe him, when we have FBI.  Uh... perhaps some official government reports would be of help in deciding.  These reports have been kept secret from you and me, but the Pentagon has them, and so have members of Congress, and the FBI, and, by the way, so has many of the so called 'mainstream' media.  Unfortunately, it is not news, apparently, so you will have to settle for reading about it here...

The Pentagon commissioned no less than nine independent reports on the OKC blast according to an article by the trouble-making, hot-political potato tossing J. Orlin Grabbe who wrote a piece entitled 'Secret Pentagon Report on Oklahoma City Bombing--Evidence of an Inside Job?' Here is what he had to say (out of sequence from the original)...

"The Pentagon commissioned nine explosive experts to write independent reports on the bombing, and adopted two of the nine reports as the 'official' report. I spoke to both experts, but they declined to be interviewed, citing confidentiality agreements with the Pentagon. Sources familiar with the Pentagon report, however, have confirmed that the conclusions were similar in nature to those of a private report prepared by General Benton K. Partin, dated July 30, 1995, except that the Pentagon report concludes there were demolition charges placed on five columns, not four as concluded by General Partin...

...The principal damage to the Alfred P. Murrah Building was brought about by explosives placed on five columns of the Murrah Building, according to the Pentagon report, and not by the ANFO bomb in the truck supposedly driven by McVeigh. Thus, until the individuals who placed the explosives on the columns of the Murrah Building are identified, any proposed explanation of how the bombing came about is woefully inadequate. The existence of demolition charges placed on some columns at the third-floor level of the Murrah Building is strongly suggestive of inside participation by at least some federal employees."

Elgin Air Force Base Blast Study Confirms Partin

Still not convinced?  After all, Grabbe is a known 'trouble maker' and if the reports were secret, how do we know they really exist at all? What a tough crowd! William F. Jasper writes for The New American and his piece 'Eglin AFB Study Indicates Multiple Blasts' is backed up by an official USAF study and report.  Proof in the pudding, as it were, in the form of the full report (Case Study Relating Blast Effects to the Events of April 19, 1995 Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, Oklahoma City) can be had for a mere $25 sent to The New American, PO Box 8040, Appleton, WI 54913, asking for the EBES Report. From Jasper we have a few select quotes:

"A new study analyzing explosive tests conducted by the U.S. Air Force against a reinforced concrete structure may provide an important key to understanding the April 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, which took 168 lives. The report, based on testing data and photographs supplied by the Armament Directorate, Wright Laboratory at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida... convincingly proves the fundamental points [first] set forth by General Partin... includes photographs and data from the Eglin blast tests, as well as extensive technical analysis of those tests... relates the Eglin parametric data to the Murrah Building... contains letters from engineers and technical experts who have reviewed the study for The New American...

Due to these conditions, it is impossible to ascribe the damage that occurred on April 19, 1995 to a single truck bomb containing 4,800 lbs. of ANFO. In fact, the maximum predicted damage to the floor panels of the Murrah Federal Building is equal to approximately 1% of the total floor area of the building. Furthermore, due to the lack of symmetrical damage pattern at the Murrah Building, it would be inconsistent with the results of the ETS test [number] one to state that all of the damage to the Murrah Building is the result of the truck bomb... The damage to the Murrah Federal Building is consistent with damage resulting from mechanically coupled devices placed locally within the structure...

It must be concluded that the damage at the Murrah Federal Building is not the result of the truck bomb itself, but rather due to other factors such as locally placed charges within the building itself.... The procedures used to cause the damage to the Murrah Building are therefore more involved and complex than simply parking a truck and leaving..."

So much for the FBI's New Math and New Science... not to mention their integrity, investigative honesty, and sworn oath to uphold the law, defend the Constitution, etc. - and equally so much for the rest of government, the court system, and media.  You might want to write them all a letter and ask them to justify themselves - and cancel your subscriptions and campaign contributions while you are at it...
Image Analysis as Bomb Factory: The Commercial ANFO & Multiple Bomb Scenarios 

This analysis, when first attempted, immediately found that the image did not support home-made ANFO of the variety claimed as used by FBI. Such crude devices needed none of the resources seen within the images. Analysis as a factory of commercial-grade ANFO devices was more productive, but still left many resources within the images unaccounted for. With that in mind, and mindful of the fact that a single ANFO bomb has been shown to be inadequate to the evidence at Oklahoma City in the first place, the analysis was undertaken a second time with an attempt to fit to manufacture of the multiple interior bombs with the remaining resources.  This produces an excellent fit, one the reader may elect to prefer to the METC analysis available here as being superior. 
The first assumption to get out of the way, then, is that it is necessary that the first blast be that of the column support beams, followed 4.2 seconds later by the ANFO bomb in the Ryder truck in front of the building.  This is because the beams would need to be at their weakest (severed) state prior to the main blast in order to facilitate the greatest damage. Proof this is so lies in the crater image. If the main blast were first, loose debris would have been piled up within the building near to and likely around the inner column, and the second blast would have evacuated a large area within the debris to form a secondary crater effect, and scattered such debris back towards the ANFO crater, giving evidence to the secondary blast. However, if the columns when first, any debris they created would be blown back towards the building's center and be indistinguishable from debris of the second blast. Further, the larger ANFO blast might actually damage the detonation mechanisms or connections such that the column bombs failed to go off at all.  Not true the other way around.

We already know this happened somewhere in the building, since two other bombs were found. Where? Likely columns B5 and B7 in General Partin's artwork - we at least know they were found on the third floor. But the outer columns did detonate, and thus we know they remained unaffected by the very nearby truck bomb, indicating the columns detonated first. Why a 4.2 second delay to the truck blast? We must preclude the ideal circumstance would be to attempt to conceal the multiple bomb scenario by making it seem as a single explosion. Only a guess - that whomever operated the radio detonation device was likely taken back by the audible intensity of the first explosion, perhaps even causing him to drop the trigger mechanism, pick it up after regaining composure, and then finally exercise control. 

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Another element that must be considered is the total collapse of the front of the building, and in my mind, I am also concerned that there are no debris on the roof. If the explosion blew in all directions, should not debris also been blown upward? In the crater image, there are things on the roof and parking lot of the buildings across the street from the crater which at least have the appearance of debris. If debris landed there, why not atop of Murrah itself? This is one reason I am uncomfortable with ANFO as primary bomb. In studying the image with these remarks in mind, note the exceptionally clean areas in front of Murrah have been cleaned by crews, and were, by my recollection of first-day video coverage, full of lesser debris much like the parking lot just mentioned. We might argue that we do not know how much debris were removed and that perhaps the cascade effect was as it should have been, simply cleaned up in this image. Perhaps.

Other investigators, perhaps noting this oddity, have attempted to explain it by stating that the brunt of the explosion pushed upward in a way that did not disintegrate the floors and send them and their contents flying upward as debris, but merely severed floor supports and lifted the upper floors a few inches and then dropped them. In the act of falling, they merely kept on falling (no longer supported by severed columns) and collapsed inward. If that is so, I ask why is there not more 'spillage' of debris outward of the front wall? That much debris should have simply fallen and spread outward evenly like cascading gravel. It did not do so evenly, the bulk of the debris being within the building with little piled outward. Again, this leads me to believe perhaps more in METC than ANFO.

Thus admitting a bias towards my own theory, a still convincing analysis for ANFO begins with the cylindrical machine in the 'bomb factory' images.  I refer once more to the Time article quoted in the above section. The article also talks about special equipment referenced to produce a commercial variety of ANFO explosive, which also requires special permits in order to purchase, and for which considerable documentation trails are maintained. 'One of the more common mixtures uses pellets of ammonium nitrate mixed with diesel fuel to form a semi-liquid that has a consistency of mayonnaise... Commercial manufacturers use industrial-size blenders for the job.' This ANFO material is apparently not subject to the settling phenomenon, and one of its traits is 'complete combustion efficiency', which means nothing is wasted, a bigger blast, and no unexploded traces of the device remaining.

Composite Image w contrast/brightness adjusted to show detail of 'machine' and trench lines for comparison against insets

A question or two for the reader, using the above image... 1) Does the chemical spill (A) next to the device look more like the powdery form of nitrates used in fertilizer or more like the texture of pellets?  Of course, either answer does not excuse the image of being a bomb factory, nor does it prove the material is nitrate, at all - but the color is correct for nitrates. 2) Compare the details of the long machine at the site with the inset corner image - is there a similarity?  The image in the corner depicts a very special machine which does three things.  It mixes, it heats, and it pumps.  It is a portable indirect calciner-lined tube mixer. It comes in all sizes and many variations, from a number of firms world wide. 3) Does it appear that there are wheels (B & E) on the primary machine? This is not critical, because such machines come in both portable and fixed versions, but a portable machine makes more sense in this case. 4) Does the left end of the machine in question seem to be raised off of the ground about a 2-3 feet higher than the right end?  There are subtle clues this is so, the most visible of which is that the (B) wheel assembly seems to be jacked up and at an angle, and a shadow which is more abundant at left than at right. Checking the other inset, we see that the trailer parked next to the tube is closer at the far end than the near end (not parallel) - yet the roof line is essentially parallel to the tube in the horizontal image.  This can only be so if the tube is not level, raised at the left of image. The mixing effect of tube mixers requires the feed end to be higher than the exit end. 5) Is there now any question in the reader's mind that the machine in question is capable of making commercial quality ANFO explosives?  Take your time... the question is NOT going away.

Now follow the output pipe that enters the ground and then runs in a visible trench line. 1) Does it appear that the trench (C) is shallow, poorly dug and covered?  2) Note that it ends with a dramatic darker material and roughness in the trench, as if recently uncovered.  Does it appear that there is a hint of a much better buried (and untampered with) line running at right angles towards the tents? Refer to the inset of the trench from another view angle for help in deciding.  3) Have you ever smelled nitrates and fuel oil or exotic fuels such as nitromethane?  You wouldn't want to do so for very long.  Look at the larger edited image found below this paragraph and compare the placement of the machine shown there.  I maintain that the poorly buried trench line, and the suggestion of a freshly laid secondary layer of darker gravel along the whole left side of the compound implies the machine was originally placed closer to the tents, but moved as far away as possible when the people working in the command tent in the corner were overcome with fumes. There will be other evidence in a future image of the site which suggests this is also true, because wherever the spill is, plants will not grow! 4) Is there any doubt in the reader's mind that the output of the machine goes to the the first tent, tent (A) in the larger image?

Tent Bomb Factory Process Analysis
Edited Image (relocated machine) with bomb factory tent pair labels added. Note a
technician in all-white clean-room type dress exiting tent (a) towards command tent
Important note: The white fencing at the porches and separated tents allows for extreme compartmentalization, a security technique which allows people to work without understanding or knowing any details about the larger operation.  Thus not even the guards, workers in the tents, drivers, or anyone other than high managers need understand the full significance of either their job or this image with respect to OKC.  Only by review of the following scenario might such persons come to realize their part in a terrible crime. Other scenarios are possible, but this is my best 'guesstimate' of an appropriate use of resources: 

Empty barrels are received at the porch of tent (A) and inspected and prepared in tent (a) before being filled with commercial ANFO from tube machine in tent (A).  Detonation device and timer components are received at the porch of tent (B) and inspected, tested, and assembled in tent (b). Filled barrels from tent (A) are brought to tent (B) for installation of the completed detonation mechanisms, which are inserted deep within the barrels. 

Plastic explosives for the interior bombs, satchels or other containers for them, and their detonation devices are received at the porch of tend (D). The detonation devices are inspected, tested, and assembled in tent (d) and mated with containers in tent (D).  Final inspection of all bombs is undertaken in tent (C) with minor adjustments in tent (c), and delivery output to the porch of tent (D), where the Ryder truck awaits.

It common for identifiable pieces of detonating devices to survive blasts and be found by investigators if placed on the outside of the explosive material. But if such a detonator were actually inserted within the drums instead of merely being placed somewhere on their outside, it would not only aid in blast shape determination, but also completely annihilate the detonator mechanisms leaving no detectable trace of the means employed. The end result is a bomb which has a low-tech appearance because there are no high-tech bomb pieces found in the debris. In my opinion, a wireless radio activated detonation system is the only logical way to go, perhaps with integral programmable delay devices if individual barrel detonation is to be staggered by milliseconds to help achieve a more focused blast. The most efficient way to destroy a reinforced concrete/steel column is to place explosives at opposing sides, or even on all sides. This creates a 'cutting' action from two sides simultaneously and reduces the total explosives material required for the task. The most logical explosives for this job is C-4, also known as plastic, which is normally detonated by a simple blasting cap with a manual, electronic, or mechanical trigger mechanism of some sort coupled to a battery source.

Plastic comes in bricks not unlike clay, and like clay, is somewhat soft and pliable, easy to mold into shape and press into position. Also like clay, smaller portions can be pulled away and used, or the whole brick can be used. In my opinion, the best solution is to create a simple 'girdle' and 'satchel' garment bags designed to hold an appropriate number of bricks in the proper positions on opposite sides of the target pillar(s). The interior pillars are smaller in diameter, and may have had full 360 degree access within the building, making it easy to strap a girdle into place. The larger columns at the front facing would be more challenging because one side would have been incorporated into the front wall/window surface, denying 360 degree access. Simply placing satchels at opposite sides of the base on the floor would be adequate. The precise positions would have to be carefully planned in advance, of course. Consider this quote from the April 23 World Net Daily article by Jon Dougherty, Oklahoma City's Lost Information - which chiefly echo's my sentiments about media's inability to remember facts or recognize 'facts' presented by government which need to be challenged:

          'Witnesses reported seeing three men in the parking garage of the Murrah building (it had nine stories above ground and had a
          four-floor parking garage underneath) working with "electrical equipment" and pointing at various parts of the garage in the days
          before the attack. Many survivors reported that some of these men were dressed in Government Services Administration uniforms 
          but had never seen them before or since.'

The girdle and satchel bags would need to be assembled with explosives, and detonators installed at both sides of each bag to insure synchronous detonation. While a radio detonator might have been applied, the problem with plastic is that it might not utterly destroy the detonating mechanism to leave no detectable clues. Finding any clue to a detonator frequently tends to unravel the entire matter to lead investigators to the group responsible. A simple wrist-watch like counter with a battery could be wired in a way that, if surviving, would simply look like it was a watch which belonged to one of the bomb's victims.

A tougher problem is how to synchronize all four column bombs with each other. This challenge leaves me with several solutions which are each subject to objectionable elements. The simplest is that four individuals each placed a bomb, and then on signal, started the timers and ran. But this means four people plus McVeigh who presumably came along later, quite possibly unaware of the other bombs at all. There was no need for him to know about any other bombs or conspirators if he was a front man and cut out, or patsy.
Another means might involve a simple photographer's flash synchronizer. This is a small object the size of a power plug, some models actually using power plug prongs for connection to the flash unit. A sudden rise in light intensity closes the circuit. Thus only one column need have a timer, and the others, if equipped with the synchronizer would trigger off of the flash of the first explosion, essentially synchronous based on the speed of light. The drawback is that this author has not been able to find anyone to confirm if the flash of a plastic explosion is bright enough to trigger a synchronizer.  Of course, an actual camera flash attached to a standard photo timer would do the job, and would not leave clues that would necessarily point to the true purpose of the equipment. It would likely be assumed to have been strictly a photographer's tool belonging to one of the victims or stored there by an occupant of the building. 

Yet another means involves running wires between all the packages at each column so that when one goes, they all go, but this leaves a tell-tale wire that would attract suspicion immediately if encountered. Depending on where the explosives might actually have been placed (that forensic information not available publicly), this and the other alternatives methods might or might not be more or less acceptable. Perhaps General Partin has such information, and someone like him would surely have a better and more informed opinion than my own. As stated, I am not an expert in this area. For that reason, this entire section may be rewritten as my education improves or pending the contribution of others. Some have already contributed greatly.

The following material applies to both ANFO and METC arguments. Consider the security issues. Note what appears to be a security camera in the upper left fence corner and what might be a camera on the main power pole - both might be just lights, or a combination.. There seems to be a well-used guard's walk path about the perimeter of the 10-12' high fence. The outermost fence is is said to be topped with razor wire and the inner fences are cloth covered to obscure view. Whatever activity was taking place in the tents, including the loading/unloading of trucks (a new loading ramp has been built within the fence), was so secret that not even those present inside the compound were to see. 

This technique is called compartmentalization and is applied ONLY by the intelligence community. Further note that each set of four 'work' areas consists of a loading area with fence, a larger round-top tent, and a smaller tent of traditional design. Pairs are so closely spaced as to allow direct passage between without visual detection. There is a yellow Caterpillar with grader blade at center top, probably used to prepare the area and spread the gravel, another indicator of recent construction. Harder to see right of that is a large capacity fork lift. Presence of these is a clue to the secrecy of the project.  It implies that normal base resources (manpower and equipment) were not used: a grader was obtained outside of channels and thus, need not be returned.  Such heavy equipment is not normally stored outside of the engineering section of a base.

Examine the unusual power pole configuration. There is a transformer on the pole, from which power runs down to a switch box. From there it splits through conduit to yet another box (upper path) and directly (lower route). I've seen this configuration in military sites where unusual voltages were required: 110 V 60 cycle, 220 V 60 cycle, and 240 V three-phase. It can also mean foreign equipment is being used with needs for 50 cycles. There is within the main image a small Auxiliary Power Unit parked just ahead of the van, which is capable of producing 24V and 48 V DC. The reason for the odd mix of power is to support a wide range of instrumentation and heavy motor needs. Note the underground trench leading to the pole, also fresh.

Finally, again for both arguments, are some additional fine details worth noting. High-magnification analysis of the street view image reveals smoke is now coming from the mixing machine, just visible as a dark softness at the stack's top. The larger tents are high enough to both allow trucks to be backed into them, and to contain a crane assembly, if needed. Given that there is only one vehicle present, it is entirely conceivable that the factory can be run entirely with one man once set up, simply executing one step at a time. 

Thus, the identity of the car and driver in these images is very important.  There are several means by which this might be determined, providing the military uniform is genuine, fewer means if it is not. Hopefully, more to follow on this question.  In the meantime, anyone involved in this matter peripherally had better take out some pretty outstanding insurance policies (as have I) or plan on turning State's evidence.  Not only are they in danger from prosecution, but of assassination from those above them who must now feel their margin of anonymity slipping away.  Let me raise the stakes a little more for those involved.  I and my investigators are examining ties to an orphanage, a church, a Satanic cult, and an oil company which itself has ties further South and, now, far to the East. It is only a matter of time.  Come in now - I protect my sources.

I had planned to include an updated version of my analysis of this site as an METC bomb making factory.  This had earlier been displayed for more than two years with very few people signing on.  Most of what applies to the tube mixer and the rest of the image, especially those things which represent new information, also apply to METC.  As I have run out of time, and can no longer afford to delay the posting of materials which may help to stay McVeigh's execution pending a proper investigation, I must instead for the time being suggest that readers interested in learning about METC request that from me directly.
