The Third Man

ByPamela Geller on March 11, 2011


Documents obtained by The Associated Press show that our government was warned that Islamic terrorists were planning attacks on American federal buildings around the time of the Oklahoma City bombing. The Clinton administration even stepped up security around such buildings.

So could this mean that Timothy McVeigh was acting in league with those Al-husseini militants? My next guest says, yes, indeed.

Jayna Davis is a former Oklahoma City television reporter. She joins us now from Oklahoma City.

So, Jayna, this warning that was issued in February of 1995, a — essentially
a couple of months before the Murrah building explosion — do you think it was connected to that bombing?

JAYNA DAVIS, FORMER OKLAHOMA CITY TV REPORTER: Well, it dovetails with the information that we generated when I was working as a reporter for the NBC affiliate here in Oklahoma City, and we gathered information from 24 witnesses who identified eight Middle Eastern men, the majority of whom were of Iraqi descend, working in collusion with Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols during various stages of the bombing plot to blow up the Murrah building.

The warning you refer to, John, I have in my possession. It was issued by the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, and what — why it's startling to me is because it stated in February of 1995 that there would be an Iran-sponsored Islamic attack on U.S. soil. This specific target was Washington, D.C., primarily Congress and the White House.

Once security was beefed up after the dissemination of this warning, then there was an updated warning that was then issued by the director of the Congressional Task Force, Mr. Yossef Bodansky. He stated in the updated warning the specific language that the terrorists planned to strike at the heart of the U.S. but not acting alone.

The Islamic terrorists were going to employ the services and recruit what they call two lily whites. And in the jargon of the intelligence community, lily whites means anybody that's not connected or ostensibly connected to any Middle Eastern terrorist organizations and they have no police record, they're clean, they wouldn't be flagged by any law- enforcement agencies. Both Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh fit that criterion.

The third terrorist in the OKC bombing, Hussein-al-Husseini, an Iraqi soldier in Saddam Hussein's Army, sat beside Timothy McVeigh in the Ryder truck financed by Ramzi Youseff (Khalid Sheik Muhammad's nephew). More here.

Cops Refer Homeless Man's Arrest To Feds
Author: Man With McVeigh On Day Of Bombing

BOSTON — The author of a book on the Oklahoma City bombing said a homeless man arrested in Quincy on Wednesday was identified by several witnesses to the bombing as having been with Timothy McVeigh on the day of the deadly attack, the Patriot Ledger reported.

Quincy police on Thursday spoke with the author and notified the FBI of the arrest of Hussain Al Hussaini on a charge of slashing a man’s face with a beer bottle in Quincy Square, the paper reported.

Quincy police Capt. John Dougan said the suspect has the same name as a man featured prominently in the 2004 book “The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing.” The man also has a tattoo on his arm that matches the description of one on the arm of the man in the book, the paper reported.

Patriot Ledger has this: Author links man arrested in Quincy to the subject of her book on Oklahoma City bombing – Quincy, MA – The Patriot Ledger 


It was a routine call for Quincy police about two homeless men fighting. Hussain Al-Hussaini was arrested. The victim was taken to the hospital.

Then came the surprise. Readers commenting on a story about Wednesday’s arrest on The Patriot Ledger’s website noted that a man with the same name was mentioned prominently in a book about the deadly bombing of an Oklahoma City federal building in 1995.

By Thursday afternoon, police had contacted the FBI and spoken to the book’s author.

Jayna Davis, author of the 2004 book “Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing,” said she asked a Quincy police detective if Hussain Al-Hussaini, the man police arrested, had a tattoo of an anchor with a snake wrapped around it. He did. Police sent her a photo of him.

“His age, his name, the picture, the mug shot – that’s him,” Davis told The Patriot Ledger via telephone after speaking with police. She said the anchor-and-snake tattoo was common among members of a branch of the Iraqi army under Saddam Hussein.

An FBI spokesman in Boston, Greg Comcowich, said Thursday night that a man named Hussain Al-Hussaini was “thoroughly investigated” in connection with the Oklahoma City bombing and “was found to not have any role whatsoever in the attack on the Murrah Federal Building in 1995.”

Comcowich said the Hussain Al-Hussaini the FBI investigated had been seen with bomber Timothy McVeigh before the April 19, 1995, bombing, which killed 168 people.

“The investigation was closed and the FBI has no further interest in that individual,” he said.

Comcowich said he could not confirm whether the Hussain Al-Hussaini arrested in Quincy was the same Hussain Al-Hussaini investigated after the Murrah Building bombing.

The Al-Hussaini questioned by the FBI was never charged in connection with the bombing. McVeigh was executed for detonating the bomb in a truck he drove up to the federal building. Co-conspirator Terry Nichols is serving a lifetime prison sentence.

The Al-Hussaini investigated in the bombing sued Davis, a former television reporter, and Oklahoma station KFOR for a story that indirectly identified him as a potential bombing suspect dubbed “John Doe 2” by investigators. Al-Hussaini’s lawyer at the time claimed he was singled out because he was an Arab, according to a 2002 report in The Wall Street Journal.

Al-Hussaini claimed defamation, invasion of privacy and emotional distress. His suit was dismissed by a federal judge before trial after the defendants’ request for summary judgment. Al-Hussaini appealed the ruling but the decision was upheld.

Hussain Al-Hussaini, 45, was arrested around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday near 1250 Hancock St. and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police allege he slashed another homeless man’s face with a beer bottle.

Police Detective James Lencki, who was working a construction detail nearby, spotted Al-Hussaini and arrested him after his description was broadcast.

He was arraigned in Quincy District Court later that morning, and held at the county jail in Dedham on $500 cash bail and an outstanding probation matter, said David Traub, spokesman for Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey.

Al-Hussaini was ordered to have no contact with the victim, a 37-year-old who was taken to Boston Medical Center, and to stay away from the Father Bill’s homeless shelter in Quincy.

The Al-Hussaini arrested in Quincy had been arrested in the city in 2007 on a narcotics charge and in 2009 for open and gross lewdness, Traub said.

Quincy police Capt. John Dougan said Al-Hussaini is known to police and was first arrested in Quincy in 1996 on a charge of driving without a license. He told police his native country is Iraq.

    I just tried the link “Cops Refer Homeless Man’s Arrest To Feds” and got a message saying the article is no longer available.

    Jayna Davis links everything to Iraq, only. There is another very interesting connection to Abu Sayyaf in the Phillipines.
    (scroll down to the picture of Terry Nichols)
    The Left is fully invested in making sure none of these connections ever become common knowledge. McVeigh is their pet terrorist used to minimize the ongoing global jihad.
    I remember Stephen Jones trying to inform us about all this every night on TV. Nobody believed him.
    Aside: why does the Left never trot out “root causes” when talking about McVeigh? Absent what happened in Waco, there is no OKC — a real example of root causes.

  • How weird. A former Iraqi commando now lives in homeless shelters and exposes himself to people on the street.

  • This is a coincidence, I just bought a copy of The Third Terrorist. A seller at Amazon has brand new copies of the book for $3.85. Such a deal!

  • olm

    I read Jayne’s book several years ago and nothing grates on my nerves more than when Tim McVeigh is used by the left as an example of terrorism not committed by Islamists. Keith Ellison did it last night and McVeigh of course was used as the poster child for all things Islamophobic. Puke.

  • Kafir

    Exactly, McVeigh and his family were agnostics and 50 year socialists. He’s a product of the left. They falsely use McVeigh, they falsely use the KKK which was brought forth by the DEMOCRATS.
    You know what, all the domestic terrorists are products of the left or islam.
    oswald, sirhan, mcveigh, trunk sniper, discovery, times square, underwear, olympics, shoe, irs plane, biochemist, unabomber, holocaust, jared…they always are lefties

  • “Root causes”: The Left uses McVeigh as an example of a CHRISTIAN terrorist. They never stop doing that no matter how often they’re reminded that he didn’t bring down the Murrer fed. bldg. for religious reasons. He just hated the U.S.Govt. And there’s no proof he was an actual practicing Christian anyway. The Left connects white people with Christianity. Period. So the fact he’s white makes him a CHRISTIAN terrorist.

  • Doug Hagmann has some more information on activities in Boston of Hussain Hashem al-Hussaini
    @Beagle Jayna Davis links everything to Iraq, only. There is another very interesting connection to Abu Sayyaf in the Phillipines.
    ? she does write about connections to Philippines
    While apprised of the bomber’s travels to the Philippines to wed his mail-order bride, Marife Torres, jurors were ignorant of the more sinister motives behind his South Pacific forays. They would hear not a whisper about the secret life of the small-time Kansas farmer, a man of modest means who spared no expense to take pricey flights to the international breeding ground for Muslim extremism.
    In 1996, Jayna played an instrumental role in helping McVeigh’s lawyers uncover Nichols’ Philippine liaisons with the world’s most nefarious brokers of terror. Although the evidence remains under court seal, the author has obtained secret filings which include the sworn statement of Edwin Angeles, the co-founder of Abu-Sayyaf, the Southeast Asian spin-off chapter of Al-Qaeda. Angeles insisted that he attended a meeting in the early 1990s on the island of Mindanao in which Terry Nichols discussed bomb making with Osama bin Laden’s chief explosives trainer – Ramzi Yousef, the convicted mastermind of the 1993 truck bombing of the World Trade Center.

  • Bohemond1096

    The government never identified that leg in camouflage pants that was found in the Murrah building, did they? It would make too much sense to have Saddam Hussein behind a plot to attack America as revenge for the first Gulf War and the UN sanctions. Clinton was didn’t want a war with Islam started on his watch, he already had enough problems. Better to sell it as domestic terrorism. The Ramzi Yousef connection needs to be explored and exposed more. Anyone who believes Mcveigh had the funds or knowledge to build a bomb using fuel and fertilizer, a favorite weapon of muslim terrorists at the time, doesn’t have a clue.

  • Steve

    Pamela, do you know who Avi Lipkin is? This is far from new. I heard him speak several years ago and he talked about the likely involvement of Islamic terrorists.

  • Jayna Davis’ book is excellent and available on Amazon, highly recommend. So nice to know al-Hussaini has been hanging out in our fair state lo these many years. Does anyone know what he’s on parole for? I spent yesterday away from tv and internet and this story was on and off the local stations so fast it was enough to blow your hair back so I didn’t even know about it until this morning.
    Tom, I thought Davis also mentioned someone from Iran being involved, though al-Hussaini was the one actually seen with McVeigh on the day of the bombing.

  • You’re right.
    Jayna’s book outlines a riveting body of facts that convincingly links the Oklahoma City bombers to an Iraqi/Al-Qaeda hit squad, operating under Iranian state sponsorship.
    Jayna is arguably the first journalist to publicly document this merging, unholy alliance between polar opposite extremists. Her book exclusively features a classified prior warning that prognosticated in the spring of 1995 that an “Iran-sponsored Islamic attack” would likely take place on U.S. soil, executed by “domestic” operatives.
    Eighteen months of intelligence gathering from multiple informants embedded throughout the Middle East led the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare to sound the silent alarm. On February 27, 1995, Task Force Director Yossef Bodansky alerted the FBI and a multiple federal law enforcement agencies that an international terrorism offensive, sponsored by “Iran and Syria,” was imminent. Washington, D.C. topped the hit list.
    After the bulletin was disseminated to authorities, increased security measures stymied the terrorists’ original strategy to strike the nation’s capitol, but did not diminish their resolve. A contingency plot immediately shifted the focus from Washington, D.C, taking direct aim at the American Midwest.

  • Mac-101

    Right on Beagle. The connection between Nichols and the Phillipean Jihadist seems pretty stong to me. This clown just arrested and Nickles need waterboarded big time!
    Also, if the FBI did know about the possibility of the Blg bein bombed and pulled their people and the ATF out that morning, a whole lot of more people need waterboarded!

  • Mac-101

    I just can’t understand though, if he was involved, which he most likely was, and has been down on his luck livin the life of a scumball, why wasn’t he wacked by the inteligence agencies as a lose thread liability?

  • Ivan

    Beware of Zuhdi Jaser, he is buying time for radical islam. Zuhdi is for Islam what ‘Rope a Dope’ was for Mohamed Ali. Think about Europe and how they have waltzed into Islamic Fundamentalism. The Zuhdi’s of Europe played interference while Islam got a foot hold. Zuhdi wants a dialog to begin….sound familiar? Zuhdi’s Job is to put a good face on Islam while Islam hardens its position. Zuhdi is to take our eye off the ball when Islam is against the ropes of Infidel public opinion. We need to understand just how Europe was Islamisized and all the techniques use by Islam that got Europe into the position that it is currently in. My hunch, Zuhdi Jasers European style weakened the resolve of Europeans by Takiya/Islamic Deceit/Lies for the Glory of Allah.
    Be resolved to push Islam out in the face of the Zuhdi’s.

  • Ivan

    Don’t trust Islam at all!

  • Ivan

    Point well taken…But watch out for those Tea partiers, they are liable to clean up after themselves and act in all manner of civil discourse without tearing things up or hurting anybody.

  • Carol Eberwein

    I was living in Israel at the time of the Oklahoma bombing…Israelis

  • Mac-101

    Unfortunetly, my uneducated opinion is that the Mossad works with the Agency in the Best Interset of the New World Order, not their people. If they did work for their Nations a lot more REAL stuff would have been released!
    ISrael is gittin ready to get a big time beatin.

  • Beagle

    Sorry Ms. Davis.

  • Barbara

    I remember DISTINCTLY the news initially reporting that 2 MUSLIM -looking men in black jogging suits (I believe with a white stripe going down them–& also I think they said ‘hooded’) were seen running away from the scene. That was ‘squashed’ rather quickly I noticed. Hind-sight 20/20 makes me think it was a lead that SHOULD have been pursued. Any way to go back and find out about these newscasts???

  • Chicago Jedi

    The OKC bombing and the destruction Flight 800 always bothered me because you had an wealth of witnesses saying one thing (Arab-looking accomplices for OKC, missile for Flight 800) and the official story presented by the Govt which contradicts the witnesses and evidence. I honestly believe Clinton covered up a lot of Islamic terror attacks because it didn’t fit his agenda.

  • AuntieMadder

    I don’t trust Jasser. Never have. Never will.

  • OKC Truther

    Steve, What’s new is that Al-Hussaini was arrested AGAIN in MA and is currently in jail for slicing a man’s face (40 stitches) last week. I would ask for you all to PLEASE keep this story alive, because he is VIOLENT and as long as he is loose, ALL the good people that swore before God that their eye witness testimony was true –22 VERIFIED witnesses, upheld in court by the judge that cleared Jayna of libel charges — their lives are all STILL in danger. Currently, since Al-Hussaini was arrested last week, there are people trying to find out the witnesses’ names and addresses.
    Chicago Jedi, keep trusting your gut. Keep searching for the truth. It’s right in front of our faces.
