More About The Oklahoma City Bombing

I do not believe that the FBI is foolproof or incapable of making mistakes. Especially in light of last months news that they recently found explosives in Terry Nichols home


FBI finds explosives in home where Terry Nichols lived
WASHINGTON (AP) — Pursuing information they missed evidence a decade ago, FBI agents searched the former home of convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and found blasting caps and other explosive materials apparently related to the 1995 attack, officials said Friday.

Lanza said the material was buried in the crawl space under about a foot of rock, dirt and gravel, an area that had not been searched during the original investigation.

"Depending on the situation, that's something that may not necessarily be searched, especially given the fact that there was no information there was anything in there, and even if you searched the crawl space at that time and dug through the rock and rubble you wouldn't find anything until you went at least a foot down," he said.

Lanza said the information that spurred the search indicated that "Nichols was responsible for hiding these devices" and "we are operating under the assumption that Terry Nichols put them there."

Nichols and McVeigh, who was put to death for his role in the Oklahoma City bombing, had used blasting caps, fertilizer and fuel to make the bomb used to destroy the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

McVeigh's trial lawyer said Friday he has known some materials gathered for the attack were never located by the FBI and this discovery could answer some of those questions. But he added it also could prove to be another black eye for the FBI, which was criticized for causing a delay in McVeigh's execution after it found new documents in the case.
