Tim McVeigh, Jihadists, And The Las Vegas Shooter — Is There A Connection?

Written by Captain Dave Funk on October 11, 2017

All throughout the 1990’s, I was heavily involved in Aviation Security policy work while I was a pilot for Northwest Airlines. One of the things that many outside of aviation did not pick up upon was the connection between the Oklahoma City Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombers Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and elements within the Philippines who “The Farmer” (many thought was Nichols) worked with. Those elements were later identified as Abdul Hakim Murad and Wali Khan, both of whom were eventually convicted as co-defendants along with Ramsey Yousef in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing attack and the planned attack on 11 to 12 US Airliners that came to be known as “The Bojinko Plot”.

Why is this connection important now? With the immediate ISIS claim that the Las Vegas Shooter was a recent convert to Islam, how can it not be?

Stephen Jones, who was the attorney who represented McVeigh and wrote a book about his experience titled Others Unknown, published back in 1998. In pages 138-142 of his book, Jones ties the Oklahoma City bombing group I mentioned in the first paragraph together, including Osama bin Laden. The truck bombs used in Oklahoma City, the first World Trade Center attack, the two US Embassy bombings in Africa, and in the Al Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia were all of the same type and construction. Jones also asserts in his book the connection between the group named above and the Palestinian Liberation Army and Islamic Jihad, groups that have been operating in the Philippines for decades. Al-Qaeda was later formed by bin Laden and grew out of those groups. Today ISIS is fighting to be the dominant Radical Islamist group in the South Pacific region.

If you’re wondering what could be the connection between Jihadist and McVeigh and Nichols, it is easily explained by reading the book The Turner Diaries. That book of fiction is about a war between white supremacists who called themselves freedom fighters and the US Government, ending with a nuclear attack on Washington, DC. Their ultimate targets are not revealed until the last few pages of the book; those targets are all Jewish people worldwide. The mutual goal of the white supremacist movement (Aryan Race) and Jihadist are and remain the same, the extermination of the Jewish People throughout the world.

Why would the Clinton Administration ignore the evidence of these connections? Clinton would have had to fight a war with radical Islam if they acknowledged that we were at war, which Bill Clinton clearly did not want to do.

From 41,000 feet in the air the pattern here looks pretty obvious. With the Las Vegas shooter’s known ties and the large amounts of money he has been sending to the Philippians, it’s time to follow up on these leads and hunt down and capture or kill any co-conspirators.
