JOHN DOE #2 IDENTIFIED: BUT CAN WE GET THE FBI TO ARREST HIM?
THE STORY OF THE EVENTS THAT WILL EXPOSE THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING TRUTH

JOHN DOE #2 IDENTIFIED; BUT CAN WE GET THE FBI TO ARREST HIM?
NOTE: 1ACR has been assisting Glenn & Kathy Wilburn with their private investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing and the search for ALL of the killers of their two grandchildren and 166 other Americans. The analysis below is my own, and it should be made clear that I do not presume to speak for the Wilburns. The Wilburns are two very courageous Americans who have suffered much in their search for the truth. Other Oklahoma City victims have criticized the Wilburns for seeking to get McVeigh off the hook. Nothing could be further from the truth. None of the information that they or their many volunteer helpers have discovered (of which I am but one) exculpates Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh was the truck driver, and a key player in the plot. What we are after is the rest of the bombers and the murdering bastards that sent them and sheltered them after the fact.

OUR MOTO: SIC SEMPER RODENTIA
IN THIS ISSUE: THE DARK SCREEN: WHY DO CANADIANS KNOW MORE ABOUT OKC THAN AMERICANS?, OR, DOES "N.B.C." NOW STAND FOR "N(o) B(ad) C(linton) News", "N(o) B(etter) C(overup)" OR THE "N(o) B(alls) C(ompany)"?
A word from our Editor:
Before I get started, please remember that the comments below are my own and do not reflect any other person who is assisting the Wilburn investigation.
Below, gentle readers, you will find J.D. Cash's story on the CBC coverage of the Tulsa "smoking gun". The Canadians kicked journalistic butt and named names (Strassmeir, Brescia, McVeigh). The embarrassed silence from NBC (who has this and many other stories in the can about OKC but refuses to run them) was deafening. I contacted a member of the NBC news organization and asked them how it felt to be scooped by Canadians. "They don't have our legal considerations," I was told. I responded, "Oh, they have your legal considerations, they just don't have your POLITICAL considerations." "One thing I want to know," I asked, "Is: did George Stephanopulous make two or three calls to get this one stopped?" No reply.
One thing is plain: the decision to "get more data before we run with this" was made at the highest levels of the Corporation. Now, mind you, NBC is farther ahead than the Clinton Broadcasting System and the Communist News Network (the only network treasonously flagrant enough to broadcast U.S. military troop and equipment movements in real time so as to risk their destruction). ABC is in the same boat as NBC, "working hard, but hardly working."
The book I want to read is the one to be printed a couple years down the road entitled: "Holding Up the Curtain: How the Media Became Handmaidens To the Oklahoma City Coverup."

Now for the story NBC is too scared to broadcast:
McCURTAIN DAILY GAZETTE, McCURTAIN, OK
23 October 1996
The Canadian Broadcasting Company on Tuesday night began airing what major news networks in this country have so far declined to-- witness reports that Oklahoma City suspect Timothy McVeigh was sighted just days before the nation's worst terrorist bombing at a Tulsa topless bar.
On a program called "The Fifth Estate," the Canadian counterpart to this country's "Sixty Minutes," reporters recapped much of what this newspaper has been reporting for more than 18 months, including portions of a security film from the Tulsa topless bar obtained by Gazette reporter John Cash and an NBC reporter.
Focus of the Canadian report were possible connections to former Canadian resident, Robert Millar, who is spiritual leader of the Christian Identity compound called Elohim City, which is located on the Oklahoma-Arkansas border near Fort Smith, Ark.
Contained in the CBC report was the videotape taken in the dressing room of Lady Godiva's on the night of April 8, 1995. One of the dancers there makes references to a customer she had been sitting with that night , who was bragging that she would never forget him after April 19, 1995.
The McCurtain Gazette's exclusive story on this topic, published on Sept. 25, didn't reveal the identities of the other men with that braggart, pending review by state and federal agents.
Today it can be revealed that from photographs, witnesses at the club identified the man doing the bragging as Timothy McVeigh, and those seated with him as Michael Brescia, 24, and his former Elohim City roommate, Andreas Strassmeir, 37.
The witnesses from the topless club agreed to appear on that Canadian TV segment, identifying the photos.
The FBI has reviewed a copy of the video from the club and has also interviewed the same witnesses featured in the CBC program, but the Justice Department has made no official comment on what they intend to do with the evidence.
Also this week, government prosecutors filed papers in the Denver court, asking the judge in the Oklahoma City bombing case to block efforts by McVeigh's defense team in seeking government files on Strassmeir and his activities.
Hearings are scheduled on the matter for November 14-15.
Strassmeir is a former German military officer whom residents of Elohim City say McVeigh called on April 5, 1995, when phone records indicate such a call was placed from McVeigh's motel room in Kingman, Ariz., to Elohim City. That call was made only seconds after a Ryder Truck Rental establishment in Arizona had been contacted using a prepaid phone card linked to Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.
While Strassmeir's attorney, Kirk Lyons of Black Mountain, N.C., admits his client may have met McVeigh at a Tulsa gunshow in 1993, he says Strassmeir had no contact with McVeigh since then.
Lyons said his client came to the United States in 1989 as a tourist and "just hung around" because he liked the girls and American customs.
For his part, Michael Brescia has never commented on the bombing matter publicly and has refused interview requests.
Brescia left Elohim City in the fall of 1995 and returned to his native Philadelphia where he started a rock band called Cyanide with two other former Elohim City residents, Scott A. Stedeford, 27, and Kevin W. McCarthy, 19.
In May of this year, McCarthy and Stedeford were arrested for their alleged roles in what has become known as the Midwest bank robberies.
In all, authorities believe there were some 19 banks robbed in seven states by members of the gang. Over $200,000 was reported stolen, and none of it has been recovered.
After the Oklahoma City bombing. The New York Times quoted FBI sources as saying that McVeigh and Nichols could be linked to those bank robberies. However, they have never been charged with those crimes.
FBI sources say they do not consider Brescia a suspect in the Oklahoma City bombing.
