El plan Bojinka y la voladura del Edificio Federal de Oklahoma

(Conspiracy Nation, 10/29/01) — «Bojinka» (loud bang) was the code
name given by Islamic terrorists to a 1995 plot to simultaneously bomb
eleven U.S. jumbo jets and crash a plane into CIA headquarters. [1]
Additional targets of the 1995 Bojinka conspiracy were the Pentagon
and the World Trade Center. [2]
The original plot was foiled by Philippine police. [3] However, the
Bojinka plot may have spawned the bombing(s) of the Murrah building in
Oklahoma City (OKC).
Bojinka also apparently transmuted itself into the Sept. 11, 2001
terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. As those
attacks unfolded, a Philippine investigator gasped, «It’s Bojinka!» [4]
Stephen Jones (attorney for Timothy McVeigh, supposed mastermind of
the 1995 OKC bombing(s)), in the updated, paperback reissue of his
book, *Others Unknown*, shows a Philippine/Islam link behind the OKC
horror.
Jones’ book is unfortunately not well known. Yet he is an expert on
international terrorists due to his wide-ranging investigation of the
OKC affair. Although Jones, as McVeigh’s lawyer, may not be completely
impartial, he and his team of investigators unearthed intriguing
information.
The 1993 fertilizer-bombing of the World Trade Center is traceable to
Iraqi intelligence, supported by a wider network of Muslim extremists,
argues Jones. Vincent Cannistraro, counter-terrorism expert, and Dr.
Laurie Mylroie, an expert on Iraq and terrorism, are «convinced that
the Iraqis, spearheaded by their intelligence service, [are] deeply
committed to attacking the United States — *within* its borders,»
writes Jones. [5]
This same *modus operandi* of fertilizer-bombs is seen in various
terror incidents perpetrated by radical Islam: the American embassy in
Beirut; the Al Khobar Towers in Dhahran; the 1993 World Trade Center
bombing. In the case of the OKC bombing(s) there is doubt whether a
single fertilizer-bomb could have caused such destruction to the
Murrah building. Jones also expresses skepticism regarding the
government’s version of what happened to the Murrah building. His
perception is that the federal government early on decided to cut off
a wider, more complex probe in favor of blaming a simpler plot for the
tragedy.
But we may now be paying the price for the government’s decision to
halt its original search for «others unknown» in its investigation of
the OKC bombing(s). The «others unknown» were apparently behind the
Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
In his book, Stephen Jones focuses on Terry Nichols, an associate of
Timothy McVeigh. Nichols made several trips to the Philippines prior
to the April 19th bombing of the Murrah building. Jones questions how
Nichols, a marginally employed drifter, could have afforded these
numerous trips. How also did Nichols amass $20,000, gold, and jewels
which he hid in a storage locker in Las Vegas? Nichols’ brother,
James, himself wondered, «Who paid for all the plane tickets?» [6]
Edwin Angeles, interviewed by Philippine police, claims he was at a
meeting in the early 1990s on the island of Mindanao where he saw «the
Farmer» and Ramzi Yousef together. Jones shows that «the Farmer» was
Terry Nichols and that Ramzi Yousef, convicted in connection with the
Bojinka plot, is connected to Osama bin Laden.
Jones paints with too wide of a brush when he delves into the American
«far right.» He does not adequately distinguish between the law-
abiding majority who are prepared to defend themselves and the tiny
sub-group who have wandered into aggressive violence. Nonetheless, it
is plausible, as shown by Jones, that, for example, neo-Nazis would
ally themselves with Islamic terrorist groups. The neo-Nazis hate the
Jews and Islamic extremists hate Israel. Politics makes strange
bedfellows, but in this case the pairing of neo-Nazis with a
worldwide, well-funded Islamic terrorist network is not far-fetched.
