Terrorism: May 4, 2002


Congressmen Dan Burton is pursuing reports linking Iraq to the Oklahoma City bombing, even though his colleagues and committee members think he's wasting his time. Reports, which could be true, coincidence, or fantasies, say that Tim McVeigh met Iraqi agents at a particular Oklahoma City hotel in 1995, and that two of the 11 September hijackers met with Moussaoui, the "20th hijacker", in the same hotel in July of this year. Burton heads the House Governmental Reform Committee and has assigned staffers and investigators from the committee to pursue these "leads" and to track down reports that the FBI shut down an investigation into an Iraqi connection to McVeigh.--Stephen V Cole
