26. I don't think your "source" is particularly believable
Have you read what his own website says about him?

Pat Shannan has been investigating and writing about the Oklahoma City bombing case since the day it happened. As investigative reporter for Chuck Harder and "The People's Radio Network," he traveled to the scene numerous times to interview witnesses, survivors, and other investigators. A later result of this work became "Murder in the Heartland," a two-hour video documentary on the subject, which he has referred to as "the biggest cover-up since the Kennedy and King assassinations of the 1960s."

In the 1960s, Shannan traveled the world as a night club entertainer. In the 1970s, he built an international marketing organization producing a six-figure income, which eventually was defrauded away by the federal government. In the 1980s, he became educated on the subject of the fraud in the in the Federal Reserve system and its co-conspirator, the IRS, when the latter agency began to unlawfully steal his assets from him.

In 1985, he presented his weekly Executive Intelligence Report on the award-winning Morton Downey, Jr. radio show in Cleveland, Ohio. He wrote his first book in 1987, The Banksters, which exposes the truths of monetary realism vs. deficit spending of via legal tender "credit money."

In 1991, Pat successfully defended himself before a jury in federal court against a trumped-up charge of "Conspiracy" - that catch-all charge the government often uses to dispose of people who diligently exercise their First Amendment rights. He is of the fervent belief that had he used a court-appointed attorney, he would have been convicted and incarcerated in a federal camp as one more political prisoner in America. Instead, his jury said, "Not Guilty."

Shannan published his second book in 1992 - I RODE WITH TUPPER - the true-life suspense thriller story of the persecution, prosecution, and
attempted murder of his friend and fellow writer, Tupper Saussy. It is also a handbook for the historical truths surrounding the founding of this once-great nation - a "must read" for any confused American, as it contains so much of the information which the government prefers the people not know.

In May and June of 1996, Pat Shannan spent a total of 18 days on two separate trips covering the Montana Freemen story. He was the only journalist allowed jailhouse interviews by the Freemen during and after the siege at the Clark Ranch. His book, THE MONTANA FREEMEN - The Untold Story of Government Suppression and the News Media Cover-up, explains the Freemen's stand and how the federal judiciary pulled out all stops to prevent the exposure of the banker's sham. It is a compilation of the lawful facts which CNN and Associated Press refused to report.

Currently, Pat Shannan is the Journalist-at-Large for Media Bypass magazine. He resides in the deep South and spends his time investigating and exposing suppressed information - through radio reporting, researching, and writing. He hosts the Media Bypass Radio Hour weekday mornings on the Truth Radio Network and "Pat Shannan's Investigative Reports" weekday evenings on the Heritage Network. His latest book, his first novel - ONE IN A MILLION - was released in January of 1999 and is available through Barnes & Noble or your local bookstore.

This guy sounds like a veritable nutcase. Maybe you should read about the logical fallacy called "false certainty". Simply because someone wrote something, hardly makes it true. What reason do you have to take anything this guy says seriously?
