Two documents on lies of FBI regarding flight 800 and the truth of freindly fire (Open Letter and Sheep/Terrorist articles), and one document on CIA METC bomb technology and other CIA ties to the Oklahoma City bombing have apparantly drawn intense interest from the intelligence community. These were originally posted a matter of days ago. Within 72 hours of posting, a "retired" CIA agent/operative known to me from prior surveillance of myself which was undoubtedly related to my (then) post of 400 CIA fronts/200 CIA mind control fronts, began dogging me at my place of work. He did not know that I had earlier made him.

However, he must have gotten a clue when he lost me, only to discover me getting the license number of his (rented -- believed to have flown in from the Salt Lake City area) vehicle. The next day, a person believed to be "higher in the food chain" was there at work, and he spent some time and even egaged me in conversation (a retail environment). After an extended period, he left, just before my regular lunch time. I found him at my regular lunch spot, where he again spoke to me. Very nice fellow. Now, today, on my way to work I noticed a mini-van with illegal dark glass on all four sides escorting me part way to work. Impossible to see inside. As I go to lunch, my store's security team pulls me aside and warns me that the same vehicle stopped near my vehicle at the outer perimeter of the parking lot and four men dressed in identical dark suites spent some time inspecting my (wife's) car. This had taken place about an hour earlier. I walked to lunch and returned only to find the same vehicle tagging along an access road somewhat parallel to my path.

Undoubtedly, someone has taken exception to my Web site. It is either for this page, or my flight 800 page, which demonstrates FBI deleiberatly lied in a way that can ONLY mean a cover up is in place with respect to friendly fire shootdown of flight 800. Please copy these pages and mirror/distribute widely to prevent censorship of the truth -- just in case. As an aside, this is yet another chapter in intelligence communities attempts to silence the truth -- see When the FBI came. This time, the poor slobs didn't realize they did this under the watchfull eye of a security camera with a 24 hr. tape -- which was how I was tipped off in the first place. Incidentally, I am not depressed...

From Fatal Rebirth, Chapter Four. Copyright c 1996 All righs reserved. It starts with a copy of a technical report given by an investigative writer named Thorpe to former FBI agent Jim Meresco, who quit the agency over problems over FBI handling of the Oklahoma and World Trade Center cases -- himself believing them to be a cover up of what really happened. The story line is fiction, based on fact, with factual footnotes (provided by me and placed relatively close to the text-- not part of the METC documentation) to attest the point. All characters represented in the story line are based on real persons, many of whom contributed material or information to the work. The book frequently relies on insertion of entire reproductions or quoted portions of real factual documentation or other contributions, both in the main text and in the appendix section, which is as large as many novels, alone.

METC is absolutely real, manufactured at CIA facilities within a few hours drive of my home. Had, in fact, intelligence community locals not targeted me four years ago for having come into posession of a document I understood little about and originally presumed to be a fabrication, I would not have dug into matters to the extent required to gain final understanding of the terrible truths which lay behind it -- and resulting in Fatal Rebirth. Excerpt begins:

Project METC Summary Report

The chief difference in METC unit (Multiple Explosives Transitional Container) design over traditional explosive devices moves away from a densely packed explosive core towards a large volume of highly explosive but low-density mass in the form of a gaseous cloud. In the normal bomb all explosive energy comes from a tightly packed core and must drive outward against air pressure and objects it encounters. It rapidly bleeds off energy at the square of the distance as it accumulates a wall of pressure resistance and a mass of heavy debris, which it must continually regather and push along.

The new design starts as a small device but transforms itself through simple means from a dense-core technology to a much larger gaseous-cloud state. Igniting the explosive cloud at any peripheral or central point creates a chain-reaction-like and progressively growing explosive force. As the force of the explosion moves outward, it continues to ignite fresh explosive materials as encountered and gains momentum rather than loosing it. Further, because the gaseous cloud is efficiently mixed explosive materials combined with abundant free-air oxygen, ignition is far more complete and productive - leaving little or no chemical residue or traditional flash evidence (other than a burn signature, which any investigator would presume to be from ordinary fire)on immediately encountered objects. The net result is as if a significantly larger central core device had been detonated, with the complete and even combustion making difficult any aftermath analysis as to the true nature of the explosives used. Finally, the shape of the cloud and the ignition point within the cloud, if properly controlled, provides an extremely easy means to create shaped charge effects despite a relatively free-form original cloud shape.

Termed an electro-hydrodynamic gaseous fuel device (fn1), it produces a three-stage explosion through a process described as a highly focused, A-neutronic (fn2) energy transfer. The first detonation would be a small, low-volume explosion provided by just a few ounces of PETN explosive (fn3). This is placed within a relatively small central core shaft suspended from the top of the bomb container such that it is surrounded by a liquid compound of aqueous amonium nitrate. The core shaft containing the explosive is itself made up of a compressed and hardened compound of aluminum silicate and N2O4, which starts as a slurry prior to application of a high-pressure baking process. Except for the explosive charge protected from external forces within, these items are all safe from accidental detonation as relatively safe-to-handle materials.

The first explosion's sole function is something akin to shaking a warm soda bottle violently with only a thumb to cover the opening. The relatively small explosion providing three key effects: reduction of the inner core shaft to a microfine powder; mixture of the resulting powder and aqueous solution under violently induced pressure in order to cause complete chemical absorption; and force- opening the container to support erruption of contents into a gaseous state. The cylindrical bomb casing, which has precut scores or weak points to insure it ruptures in a sawtooth pattern about its middle, splits into two flowered halves which blossom outward from the pressure. The upper half shoots upward as if shot from a cannon, while the lower portion remains cannon-like and in place on its base.

Milliseconds later, a second explosion of a larger quantity of more powerful PDTN (fn4) material is set off at the bottom of the container. Timing is critical in milliseconds as too-long a delay would allow the flash of the explosion to prematurely ignite the gaseous cloud. This detonation must take place before the cloud has been adequately oxygenated and so expanded as to be reactant to the flash, but delayed to the optimum point for final blast effects.

The ideal detonator would likely be some form of barometric sensing device looking for the changes in pressure as the explosion's forced evacuation begins to drop back towards normal levels. Simple electronic timming devices could work adequately but would not allow optimum performance in field application, as the variables of bomb placement relative to large objects/structures and open/confined spaces can impact on timing needs in incalcuable ways.

This secondary explosive is housed within its own shaped charge container formed into the bottom of the lower bomb casing. The shape and higher force of the second blast forces the bottom of the casing to separate from its base and fly upward. In this action, it will burst open even wider into its own flower petal shape, providing additional turbulent mixing of the forming cloud with free air. The violent turbulence, in turn, causes portions of the cloud to become highly charged electrostatically as it continues to form a huge and turbulent mushroom immediately over ground zero. Explosive potential has now been reached, though optimal performance is dictated by cloud size, shape, and density -- which are again variables effected by the bomb's placement and surroundings.

The cloud is made up of a mixture of the Aqueous Ammonium Nitrate with the pulverized aluminum Silicate and N2O4 compound. Once mixed with each other and free-air oxygen under force of the first two detonations, the resulting cloud is extremely explosive in nature, electrostatically charged, decidedly cold, and awaiting only an opportunity to detonate. The shape of the cloud itself, due to the nature of the cannonade-like upward flight of the upper casing, and the blunter and delayed action of the lower casing, is somewhat tear shaped - though designs can be made to produce other shapes by nature of the original container's design. This can be a key factor in fixing the shape and focus of the blast effect.

In airburst explosions provided by conventional weapons, the blast effect is minimal due to a rapid bleed of energy in all directions as blast radius increases, with only those items beneath ground zero being subjected to blast exposure. Ground explosions, however, provide a means of deflecting otherwise wasted engergy into a more desired radial blast effect. In nuclear technology, the reverse is true. A ground blast wastes energy in vaporizing and throwing up of tremendous quantities of ground materials where an air blast expands to maximum heat and blast effect forces before comming into contact with ground objects -- forming a broader circle of maximum impact. An airburst shockwave travels in air, a light medium, whereas the ground burst starts with solid matter thrown up by the blast - a heavier medium. An angular shockwave in a light medium tends to reflect when striking a solid, immovable plane such as the earth. This reradiates the energy outward and back upward (fn5), further enhancing the shockwave effects against any encountered ground structures.

If the resulting METC unit cloud can be triggered from the top down, energy transfer drives the explosion downward and takes advantage of the tear-shape cloud. To repeat, as the force of the explosion moves outward from the ignition point, it continues to ignite fresh explosive materials as encountered and the blast gains momentum rather than loosing. By controlling the original ignition point, the blast effect can become highly focused and magnified. Yet, as an airblast, the outermost zone of actual blast damage is somewhat lessened, limiting collateral damage to a given, focused blast perimeter. This is because the focused energy deflects upward instead of radiating away from ground zero parallel to the ground. Only the secondary shock wave effects would have impact on surrounding or secondary structures or objects -- such as blowing out windows, a peculiar trademark of the device (fn5) which may dictate or limit applications should the nature of the device become public and covert application be required without revealing the type of explosives used. In the case of nuclear technology, the secondary shock wave damage is much more significant due to the massive scale of the original explosive force, and so, the effective radius of the bomb is increased dramatically. METC, unless constructed on a much larger scale, need not be so described.

Where traditional military explosives provide detonation velocities of 7,000-8,100 feet per second at the blast point. These bleed off at the square of the distance from the center of ground zero. The METC unit device, in ideal applications, is capable of much higher performance in the [REDACTED] range over a larger ground zero area equal to cloud diameter -- though destructive forces immediately beneath ground zero are noticably less than at the edge of the cloud and beyond (fn6). Final velocities can be concievably higher with optimal environmental placements, bomb design, and timming. These higher velocities provide several magnitudes greater damage potential as destructive capacity can be said to increase at the square of the force applied.

This weapon would be best applied to specific hard targets (fn7) where maximum localized damage was considered more important than broad-based damaged to broader concentrations of soft targets (fn8). Its unique nature defeats normal aftermath analysis and can therefore be applied in covert actions freely, though some effort to misdirect investigations may be required in order to insure that no undue attention is placed on the unique blast characteristics or the absence of traditional flash evidence and chemical residues.

The third and final explosion, which to an observer would be seen as a second explosion due to the mere milliseconds of delay between the first two, is timed to coincide with maximum effectiveness of the expanding cloud. The cloud's expansion rate falls off at the square of the distance from the explosion (fn9). For a devices relatively small in size, a proper cloud of suitable destructive capability could be achieved in a relatively few seconds initial expansion.

Anything within the targeted blast area, is pulverized by the highly focused nature of what would otherwise be viewed as a relatively small blast. The damage effect is not dissimilar to the visual of an explosion under water, where a violent and rapid expansion takes place and then collapses inward on itself. In this case, however, as are no great hydraulic pressures to contend with, the greatest destruction takes place within a focused perimeter, as a normalized shock wave continues on. The collapse and shock waves, relative to the size of the large-volume gaseous bomb - is a remarkably lesser pressure more in keeping with the size of the original compact device.

Timing is provided by a barometric device (fn10) which senses the normalization in pressures as the cloud thins at the base and air rushes back to fill the void - the point where expansion begins to falter against air seeking to rush back into the void created by the first explosions. Remember the under-water explosion visual. The final detonating device, along with timing controls and bomb activation and triggering mechanisms for the entire weapon, is housed in an bomb base which remains in tact on the ground after the first two explosions. Resting on legs of wood, plastic, or teflon, it is electrically insulated, though there is a ground wire established for the final triggering circuit.

While it contains a battery to operate the initial timing and triggering circuits, it also contains a quartz-crystal-based pizo- electric device (fn10) capable of producing many thousands of volts of electricity when "flexed", a phenomenon which occurs naturally as a result of the downward force of the first and second explosion against the housing. This generates a large and very high-voltage charge which temporarily has no where to go, the crystal becoming its own capacitor. At a given point, the barometric timing device trips, and the charge runs up monofiliment wires attached to bottom half of the outer casing. As the casing is thrown high into the air, the filaments are played out from spools built into the base using technology and parts borrowed from wire-guided surface missiles. When the circuit is closed, these carry the charge to the cloud to produce the final, devastating explosion.

A design variant can apply the final voltage to bare filaments to create a flash-bulb effect which ignites the explosion simultaneously about a vertical column above ground zero. Alternatively, by use of heavier insulated wires stripped bare at a given point, the ignition can be caused to originate at any point between the base and the high-flying lower casing. Finally, the charge could also be applied either from the base itself for traditional blast effects, or from a peripheral position to the cloud (if calculations of cloud size and shape were adequate) for an unusual laterally-focused blast effect. However, this would be a tougher challenge to figure out and control ignition points and timing, especially since variables such as wind patterns and intensity, and air displacements from nearby structures, would need to be considered. Regardless of the focus method employed, because pizo-electric charges are only high in voltage, but not in amperage, the insulated wires do not fuse, and can carry the voltage in tact to its intended destination for ignition.

This bomb design can be subject to great miniaturization. It is possible to build a bomb the size of a soda pop (with simplified design components, such as use of blasting caps) can for use in any precise target application. It might concievably even be made to look like an innocent pop can with the pull tab actually triggering the bomb, creating a number of interesting options for delivery and detonation. To bring down an aircraft, for instance, simply leave such a device in the magazine pouch of the seat back and exit the aircraft awaiting a passenger, at some point, to discover it and ask for some ice.

The fingerprint of a small-scale METC device applied in an aircraft or other enclosed envrironment would be miniscule traces of PDTN but no real traditional signature of explosives at all -- no flash damage, no normal residue levels. There would be mostly fire damage of mysterious origin, and since the blast origin point would be the full size of the cloud (most of the cabin), there would seem no blast point or traditional bomb damage at all -- just as if the aircraft "went to pieces". Investigators would be hard pressed to conclude explosives as the means of destruction.

Likewise, the bomb could enjoy great economy of scale as a weapon of mass destruction, concievably on a nuclear scale, but without traditional radiation problems. This would have significant strategic significance as targets could safely be occupied by troops immediately after attack. Seperate studies are under way to deal with the impact of such technology on military planning and foreign policy (fn11).

At this time, construction techniques and quality control requirements remain highly sophisticated and at a level which would defy normal mass production. Unless willing to accept significant performance loss, it requires custom design and construction for any given application. As such, it lends itself to uses perhaps best appreciated by the intelligence apparat. Therfore, its existence should not become general knowledge within other agencies such as DOD (fn12) unless further studies can find such a move advantageous. However, since the unique characteristics of the bomb could conceiveably arrouse great curiosity in aftermath investigations, its use as a covert tool should be undertaken with great restraint and reserved for highly selective application.

Additional Note (update to this posting, not part of original document): An old CIA spy vetern of the name of Werbell has been linked to the OK bombing by several informants dealing with independant investigators. He in turn, has been linked by Hougan and others to CIA special weapons development, such as the Ingram 9mm sub-machine pistol with silencer (whispering death) and the B.R. Fox company (custom explosive devices). It would be a natural extension of his experience to have been brought into the METC project for "applications." Part of the investigation also includes links with a German spy recruited by CIA, one of whom speculation has focused on links to "terrorist" bombings in Germany which may have been staged by the intelligence communities for political gain against opponent groups blamed for the blasts. This story is under development as you read. More is likely to follow.

This technical description was concluded with 1987 newspaper articles and other documents about a strange series of events involving a CIA project (fn13) and certain CIA operatives (fn14). Hercules Research Corporation, a California company, maintained a warehouse in the small Washington State coastal community of Aberdeen. Full of special equipment and bomb parts tied to the project, it was a secure facility with significant security resources protecting it, including a highly unusual arrangement with a General at the Pentagon to provide security backup in the form of "special units" from Fort Lewis. Despite this, someone managed to waltz in with several rental trucks and, having forced open the heavy doors, start loading what they wanted.

Incredibly, Police showed up but made no arrests, letting the people leave after confiscating the few materials already taken from the building. Meanwhile the Police enter the building and become concerned at all the strange things, which while actually related to bomb making, are so technically sophisticated that there is no way to tell by looking. In awe at the strange and obviously expensive equipment, they demand that the owners come down to secure the building, demonstrate proper ownership, and provide explanation of the items -- coming down harder on the supposed good guys than the would-be thieves. Despite an obvious breakdown in security and the nearly successful theft, and despite an obviously flawed Police intervention, there was no effort to improve security. This would prove convenient for someone, since two weeks later, and after the General mysteriously orders his people to withdraw support without explanation, seven U-Haul trucks and a whole crew of people literally take the doors off their hinges in the middle of the night.

Once again, Police arrive, but this time one of the thieves has a "note" from an ex-girl-friend of a principle manager (himself later determined to be a member of the intelligence community), saying that its "OK to take a few things." The Police, which before had been so careful to challenge documentation of ownership, left the group to take what they wanted based on this flimsy document - millions of dollars worth of special equipment and difficult to manufacture bomb materials vanish without trace. Apparently police believed that it reasonably took seven trucks to carry off "a few things" and that removing the doors from the hinges in the middle of the night did not constitute breaking and entering or demonstrate reasonable cause for suspicion.

The items taken were later described as highly classified by the manager - using CIA terms like "SCI Special Ticket" (fn15). The material on the robbery was described as a "typical plausible denial tactic" by Thorpe, who said it was a ploy designed to demonstrate that if anything really nasty ever happened, it was someone else's fault, not CIA. After all, someone stole the stuff, didn't they? The suggestion was that it was far too convenient to have so many security systems fail, to have the Army back off, and for the Police to turn into virtual accomplices. It all smacked of a typical CIA operation. They stole from themselves, was his seemingly justified conclusion (fn16).

Meresco, not thinking himself expert, was not necessarily convinced by the bomb material, though much of what he saw seemed solid and looked like it might withstand closer technical scrutiny. It could certainly explain two mysteries: That pillars close to ground zero remained standing while pillars further away did not -- something an gaseous airburst could achieve but a nitrate explosion could not; and that the crater was too small for the quantity of nitrate explosives required to destroy the building -- but a suitable size for the type of explosive proposed by Thorpe. Any remaining reservations crumbled under the weight of several additional facts provided by Thorpe.

Oklahoma newspaper clippings and unaired witness interview transcripts provided with the materials by Thorpe demonstrated that many witnesses had told of hearing two explosions several seconds apart. While Meresco had heard this before himself from witnesses, he knew that FBI had discounted this as mistaken echoes. However, Thorpe also provided proof that there had indeed been a second blast. Dr. Ken Louzza, seismologist at the University of Oklahoma had provided seismic records clearly showing two blasts at almost exactly ten seconds apart originating from the same city epicenter (fn17). This fit the characteristics of the high-tech bomb described by Thorpe.

The second proof was a long list of detailed attacks of FBI claims by an extremely qualified and impressive expert, General Benton K. Parton, USAF, retired. The General was apparantly a 25-year veteran of Air Force weapons research, design, testing, and management of air weapons and delivery systems against a broad structural spectrum of targets. This included work at the Ballistic Research Laboratories and the Air Force Armament Technology Laboratory. The General also served as founding chairman of the joint service Air Munitions Requirements and Development Committee under the Secretary of Defense and was the Air Force System Command's Special Assistant for Advanced Weapons, holding an M.S. degree in aeronautical (armament) engineering and having completed coursware for a doctorate in operations research and statistics.

In short, the General had written (fn18) personally delivered letters on May 18th of 1995 to 24 senators and some 30 members of the House, in which he said: "I can say with a high level of confidence that the damage pattern on the reinforced concrete superstructure could not possibly have been attained from the single truck bomb without supplementing demolition charges at some of the reinforced column bases. The total incompatibility with a single truck bomb lies in the fact that either some of the columns collapsed that should not have collapsed or some of the columns are still standing that should have collapsed and did not."

Thorp pointed out that while Parton was favoring a multiple internal/external charge theory, he, too, was unaware of the METC technology and had therefore not analyzed the facts against such a possibility. The General's main concern over how a larger, heavier constructed and more reinforced support beam might be fallen from the blast when lighter, smaller, less strong beams closer to the blast were not. Thorp pointed out that with the gaseous cloud, the explosive force builds as the cloud ignites, the greater force being at the outer edges of the cloud -- further away from ground zero -- and the overall downward effect nearer to ground zero would apply lower toppeling forces to nearer columns than the more radial forces at the perimeter.

The third bit of information which had been withheld from FBI in the field had to do with the Grand Jury which indicted McVeigh (fn19). It seems a grand juror, sworn to secrecy regarding Grand Jury proceedings, felt so convinced that there was a federal rat under foot and that McVeigh was being railroaded that she elected to violate her secrecy requirments and talk to a writer who was an aquaintence of Thorpe's. Quotes from his work from that interview were rather telling. She told how the Jury was charged with determining if indictments were warranted against any of five persons seen at the bomb site and under original suspicion. This Jim knew. What he did not know was that all of the men other than McVeigh were apparantly ignored and even protected by the prosecuting attorneys from examinatin in the proceedings. Even though identified, they were never called nor were any questions of witnessed directed against them. It turned out that at least one of the men was apparantly a government agent of some sort, suggesting that some government agency had a role in the bombing. Even though it was brought out in testimony that one of the men did rent a truck with McVeigh, and that there was another Ryder truck rented by yet another of the suspects, prosecuters still insisted these men had nothing to do with the bombing and were not suspect.

The juror, based on facts presented and the way McVeigh conducted himself, concluded that McVeigh himself likely believed he had been working for a special operations group under government orders and that he would not actually end up being prosecuted for the crime -- that McVeigh understood his mission was to be a patsy, which probably explained why a man in the top 5% of his military peers and considered officer material would do so many seemingly stupid things: the asking for directions and ignoring them to drive by video cameras, the purchase of nitrates, renting a motel room and the Ryder truck under his own name and leaving fingerprints on the related documents, driving away in a car with no plates in a way guaranteed to have him stopped by police, and then having a gun in plain sight guaranteeing any lawman to scrutinize him further... it all sounded a awful lot like the unreasonable stupidity exhibited by the World Trade Center "bombers" -- who were themselves "former" intelligence operatives for CIA and may have also likely been operating on instructions from government handlers -- doing so unaware of the danger and nature of the trap being sprung upon them, or willing to take the fall under orders.

This notion might also explain why, while the prosecution brought in a lot of witnesses to say McVeigh went to gun shows and did a lot of things which circumstantially painted him as a general bad guy, they brought in none of the witnesses aluded to which saw him at the bomb site with the truck. It was believed that this was because the witnesses would also tell of the other person or persons seen with him, and that these might turn out to be persons in need of protection because of govenment ties. It seemed obvious to all concerned that evidence was being withheld. Even McVeigh refused to tell about any others present with him that day -- the same people the govenment refused to call or question. Thorpe smelled that Federal rat -- why would the government protect the same people McVeigh was protecting, unless they were all working for the same boss. Jim agreed the evidence was mounting that McVeigh was the good soldier taking the fall, most likely for reasons of "national security"... of the fascist secret government kind feared by Thorpe.

Then there was this. There were persistent rummors of two or more unexploded bombs being found in the building by rescue workers. Something Jim had heard before, but there was no official FBI record. Thorpe suggested that by placing such bombs for discovery, a second layer of defence against determining the use of the fuel-air device was provided. Should anyone object seriously to the nitrate bomb theory, they could trot out the additional bombs -- which fit General Parton's observations. Jimwas aware of a witness who originally made statements that he saw the building collapse inward upon itself as if blown up from within by several charges, not unlike building demolitions seen on TV. He later recanted, and Jim wondered why. In light of the missing unexploded bombs, it now made sense -- no one challenging the nitrate story. One would also have to ask, if the bombing was actually from within, why blow up the Ryder truck? It simply did not make sense that secondary bombs within the building would need exist unless Thorp's theory was correct. The only need for secondary bombs was as defensive fodder to explain the unique signature of a METC application, as suggested neccessary by the author of the METC Summary Report.

This all sent chills through Jim's sensibilities about the state of American Justice. These were magnified when he read that Grand Juror members were denied their authority and right to cross examine witnesses without clearing questions through the prosecutors first -- a process which, if and when approved, prohibited additional questioning beyond a first even where a response would raise other questions, because the witness was no longer present. Since the answer to a question would indeed typically begat additional questions, the process was severely curtailed in effectiveness towards reaching the truth. The jury apparantly had their own questions about the bomb make up, because even to them, it was clear that based on the facts as presented, a nitrate-based bomb would not have left pillars closest to ground zero standing while knocking down identical pillars further away. The Jury asked repeatedly to question bomb experts and construction engineers about these issues, but were denied the opportunity by prosecution, until finally, one was brought in to avoid mutiny. The jury found his testimony shaded and unbelievable, despite a long list of credentials. The jury felt he was probably a CIA type on a mission to cloud the issue, and the juror later discovered he was indeed a CIA agent.

The notion of the bomb type proposed by Thorpe seemed far more solid than anything the government claimed. The final straw was in the form of a hypothetic regarding the possible use of the same technology in the Trade Center Bombing. There, the device as described would not be used in the same configuration, for there was no "sky" within which to create a cloud. However, with some modification, the device could be triggered in such a way as to release the cloud radially rather than vertically, filling the air space within the basement parking structure in a suitable fashion. The final detonation there, would likely have been peripherally ignited at simultaneous multiple points. A cloud peripheral detonation would cause the pressure to grow progressively as it raced inward to the center, driving the oxygenated explosive masses tightly together at the center.

As experienced in the Trade Center, this would create a significant blast force focused both downward and upward. Again, as in Oklahoma, there would be a pronounced sphere of destruction, as was indeed found in the Trade Center, where the blast punched through several layers of concrete floors in both directions. Again, as in Oklahoma, there would be no flash burns associated with incomplete combustion of the fuel-oil/fertilizer combination. All of these things coincided with Meresco's original concerns over the Trade Center. Thorpe speculated that the van itself had been somehow transformed into the bomb casing, using its doors and windows, and perhaps scores cut into its walls, as directional vents for the expanding cloud. Jim was less certain about that notion, but acknowledged that a design varient of METC could account for many of his own misgivings about the WTC.

But there was yet another matter which Meresco found particularly interesting. Thorpe had apparently acquired knowledge from an unnamed source in the intelligence community about a curiosity. Jim was keenly aware of the facts of the matter, and surprised that Thorpe was able to know such intimate details about the internal matters of the FBI investigation of the Trade Center. Thorpe knew, for instance, that a certain lawyer with engineering expertise had been consulting with the FBI and working closely on the investigation. He knew only the man's initials as L.R. (fn20) Meresco recognized the description as fitting just such a man representing the insurance company covering the huge, dual- monolith structure. Thorpe also knew that Karl Koch Erecting (fn21) was the steel fiter involved in the structural building of the towers - a firm access to detailed plans as to the structure's internal support layout.

What made this information curious, according to the tip from the unnamed source, was that several months prior to the bombing, a KKE subcontractor employee was reported missing by his family. Police found his car abandoned at the docks. Inside, an open briefcase was found, its contents spilled on the floorboard. Among the contents was an empty folder labeled "WORLD TRADE CENTER". Clipped to this was a note reading "For L.R. - Midnight - $10K".

The informant, a man claiming intelligence community ties from whom he had obtained the information by stealth at great peril, had presented this information to Thorpe along with a series of simple questions: "What if the contents of the folder were copies of structural engineering plans for the World Trade Center? Could such plans be used to place a bomb to achieve a specific end, and would that be worth $10,000 to someone? What if the L.R. receiving the plans was the same L.R. working closely with FBI at the scene? Would this enable him to derail any detection of strategic bomb placement and type? Would the danger of prosecution by ability to tie any such plans to L.R. be sufficient cause for the missing man to vanish by means unknown? Would this also be sufficient cause for persons unknown to alter police files such that all references to the original briefcase findings were subsequently removed? Why would the intelligence community have this information in the first place unless it held some significance? Want to take a wild stab at guessing that significance? If you do, you probably better not talk about it openly..."

Jim was not deeply involved with the "L.R." man, whom he barely recalled as being told was on site a couple of times. But he did know that at least one FBI report he had read had concluded that the bomb placement had been perilously close to a critical structural point, but that the bomb had apparently been placed as to suggest this was coincidence, and not a point intentionally targeted -- as it would have been a simple matter to place the bomb more effectively. Jim resolved to more carefully review these issues if he could once more access to the material -- something not now very likely unless he could talk a former friend still in FBI to risk their retirement pension. Thorpe was clearly breaking new ground and renewing Jim's passion for finding a solution.

2 Non nuclear technology, one which, in this case, approaches nuclear weapon efficiency.

3 Traditional gunpowder technology.

4 Plastic explosives technology.

5 This is seen in curiously untouched buildings immediately located about the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma.

6 As seen in Oklahoma where larger and stronger reinforced concrete columns were toppled at distance from the blast but smaller and less strong columns near blast center remained standing.

7 A hard target is any heavily constructed target such as a steel bridge or structure made of reinforced concrete -- any target which would require significant ordinance or explosives in order to achieve destruction.

8 A soft target is anthing less than a hard target, such as a wooden structure (your home), or people.

9 Such a device, if applied at Oklahoma City, could have been relatively small. Depending on placement and the unknown variables of the Federal building's structural strength, a suitcase- sized to garbage-can-sized bomb could have provided the obtained results.

10 Such devices were the specialty of the B.R. Fox Company, a CIA proprietary support component of what President Johnson described as Murder, Inc. Ultimately, the B.R. Fox Company was dissmantled and moved off shore to the Carribbean. (Jim Hougan, Spooks).

11 No lightweight issue: Such a weapon might lead to first-strike thinking when dealing with nuclear armed opponents, or might foster a "nuke-em" attitude to any lesser opponent without regard to moral issues -- just another tactical weapon choice.

12 Department of Defense

13 Apparantly originating from the INSLAW case, Wackenhut operations on the Cabazon Indian Reservation, as detailed elsewhere in this material.

14 Actual facts from newspaper clippings presented here without name changes.

15 CIA terminology for Special Compartmentalization Information. Compartmentalization is a CIA technique designed to prevent other members within the same agency from knowing what is going on within the department. Based on a need to know and a right to know basis, it keeps the left hand from knowing what the right hand is doing. It also allows abuse of the system and provides a means for cover up.

16 They may have turned up later at yet a third proprietary: Michael Riconosciuto had a relationship with Meridian Arms, a spooky company whose leadership and influentials included Dr. Harry Fair of Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, Intelligence operative Robert B. Nichols (thought to be the Hercules manager) - - an operation which supposedly failed shortly after the theft of bomb making components. In any event, Michael was no longer involved with the company due to a falling out with his partners prior to the theft, a matter which may have percipitated theft of their partner's technology. Yet another possibility is Inter-Probe, Inc., headed by retired Admiral, Henry Renkin, where many of Michael's patents were handled as if corporate property. The same year the bomb technology was stolen, Michael's boss and CIA director, William Casey, died "of natural causes" -- a convenient situation as his burial also helped further bury the operation from view. It is interesting to note that retired CIA Director, William Colby, suffered a fatal fishing trip after the revelations by Michael to Ted Gunderson (more below) went public. Perhaps this, too, was convenient.

17 Internet material from Ted L. Gunderson Report, former FBI agent investigating irregularities in Oklahoma City bombing who interviewed Michael Riconosciuto, Court documents regarding Michael Riconosciuto testimony about his CIA activities, Archieves on Audio regarding same. A young research scientist named Michael Riconosciuto was raised into the CIA by his OSS/CIA father where he worked for CIA's William Casey at both Hercules and for another CIA proprietary operation involving Wackenhut and the Cabazon indian reservations. Michael has testified under oath that while he was Head of Research for the CIA front, "The Wackenhut-Cabazon joint venture", which sought to develop and/or manufacture certain materials that are used in military and national security operations, including night vision goggles, machine guns (illegal Ingram 9mm knockoffs without serial numbers, by chance?), fuel-air explosives (as discussed here, by chance?), and biological and chemical warfare weapons (similar to those used in the plot herein, by chance?)." Micheal's testimony involved revelations and accusations of murder and other high crimes by Wackenhut operatives, as well as other revelations regarding many sensitive matters to which Michael was privy. The nature of the fuel-air explosives has been described as "extremely high-tech and unusually powerful -- SCI Special Ticket" -- just as used to describe the stolen technology by Hercules representatives. Shortly after the Oklahoma bombing Michael Riconoscuito revealed to Gunderson that "that bomb was one of mine."

18 Gunderson Report quotes from the General.

19 This section derived from Jon Rappoport Interview (found on Internet) with Grand Jury witness, Hoppy Heidelberg, who violated legal secrecy requirments in order to tell the truth. The juror approached the New York Times, Time and Newsweek, with the story, but was ignored. After being scheduled for appearance on 20/20, Dateline and a whole series of other television programs, she was canceled without explanation. There has been an organized effort to discredit the juror including efforts by the Governor of Oklahoma, but when personal friends and others came forward to defeat what they described as a smear campaign, local efforts were thwarted. Rappoport has written a book, Oklahoma City Bombing - The Suppressed Truth. His conclusion in attempting to rectify contradictory facts without apparant knowledge of the METC alternative, follows General Parton's bombs placed internally within the building theory.
