Insight Online World Exclusive Posted April 19, 2002 By Kenneth R. Timmerman
The retirement of career FBI Special Agent Danny Defenbaugh, accused by defense attorneys and plaintiffs in the Oklahoma City bombing case of withholding key evidence, wasn't the only dramatic development in the continuing controversies surrounding the April 19, 1995, attack that killed 168 people.
Insight has learned that the widow of Philippine-government intelligence agent Edwin Angeles has provided audiotaped testimony to an investigator working for the American victims' families that directly ties Iraqi intelligence agents to Terry Nichols, the man sentenced in 1998 to life in prison for his role in bombing the Alfred P. Murrah Building seven years ago.
Elmina Abdul is the 27-year-old widow of Angeles, one of the cofounders of the Abu Sayyaf group, a Muslim separatist terrorist organization in the Philippines whose members trained in Osama bin Laden's camps in Afghanistan. Her astonishing story, revealed in this exclusive story for the first time, could blow the lid off what a growing number of people believe is a U.S. government cover-up of vital evidence in the Oklahoma City bombing case. It also exposes an alleged plot ginned up by former Philippine president Fidel Ramos to manipulate Abu Sayyaf as a means of enhancing his personal political power.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- A couple of questions about this.
Is this being released now to make it easier to get US support for expanding attacks in the middle east? (Iraq etc)
Did the last administration cover up this information to give us a sense of security (the everything is fixed now scenario)?

OR is this just more BS like the everpresent UN troops invading Texas from the Gulf. View the source. Weigh the facts. I can say anyting I want to, freedom of speech. But it's up to the people listening to make an intelligent decision about what they hear.

Timmerman has recently released his book, "Shakedown", purported to be an "expose" of Jesse Jackson. It IS an interesting read.

Got the Jackson book but haven't read it yet. You have inspired me to read it. All I have read so far was the introduction.
Timmerman is I believe, an investigative reporter. He digs into stuff many others would not touch.
Talk to you later.
