Affidavit: McVeigh had high-level help
I don't remember ever seeing this posted.


According to Oklahoma bombing conspirator, ranking officials were involved in the attack

Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says a high-ranking FBI official "apparently" was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building and might have changed the original target of the attack, according to a new affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.
The official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government "in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma," Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit.
Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah had no comment on the allegations. The FBI and Justice Department in Washington, D.C., also declined comment.
Nichols does not say what motive the government would have to be involved in the bombing.
The affidavit was filed in a lawsuit brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, who believes his brother's death in a federal prison was linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. The suit, which seeks documents from the FBI under the federal Freedom of Information Act, alleges that authorities mistook Kenneth Trentadue for a bombing conspirator and that guards killed him in an interrogation that got out of hand.
Trentadue's death a few months after the April 19, 1995, bombing

4. What is this the...8th? 9th time? Nichols has made up yet more crap?
Face it, Nichols is a liar, he just wants the attention, because otherwise he'll just go back to the routine of the rest of his miserable life in that teeny cell.

5. For what purpose would destroying a federal building and killing
innocent people serve? What were the goals of such a project? Assuming Nichols has credibility, these questions need to be answered before going any further.
