Andreas Strassmeir: The Mossad’s Man in Place in the Oklahoma Bombing
The Oklahoma City bombing was was followed by years of independent inquiries by diligent researchers convinced (and rightly so) that the U.S. government covered up what really happened in America’s heartland.After the bombing, there was a big cover-up going on—the patriot investigators were right about that— but they didn’t understand “why.”
Although dissident assessments of the Oklahoma bombing did receive widespread attention in the “patriot” movement in America one thing about those critiques of the official government version of events was consistent:While all of those patriot-based critiques had distinctly differing theories—some blamed“the FBI”and some“the BATF”and others fingered “Bill Clinton and the New World Order,” or a combination thereof—none mention the possibility that the Oklahoma bombing conspiracy was ultimately manipulated by Israel’s Mossad.
Most researchers avoided this data.and continue to do so.It was easier and less controversial to say:“The U.S. government orchestrated the bombing to pave the way for setting up a police state,” than to point one’s finger in the direction of the Mossad.
But you’ll notice that no police state emerged in the wake of the bombing, although the truth is that there were elements at work— linked, by the way, to the Israeli lobby—who did do their damnedest to bring police-state style legislation into place.
Our thesis here is that Israel orchestrated OKC trying to frame Saddam Hussein for the crime so as to force Bill Clinton to wage war against Iraq. In fact, energetic efforts were made to link Timothy McVeigh to Iraqi Arabs in Oklahoma City who were said to be agents of Saddam.And in a subsequent chapter, we’ll explore that further.
But—to his credit—Clinton wouldn’t go along with the program. Clinton wouldn’t buy into the Mossad-sponsored theme that the bombing originated with Saddam or from some element (perhaps even Osama bin Laden) in the Arab or Muslim world.
As such,Clinton ordered the FBI to opt for a “lone nut”explanation. The FBI purposely ignored or otherwise covered up leads “linking” McVeigh to Arab operatives and limited the inquiry to McVeigh (and his friend Terry Nichols) and cut off all investigations which extended into sensitive areas and individuals involved in the web of conspiracy manipulating McVeigh prior to the bombing.And we refer here, primarily, to the enigmatic Andreas Strassmeir whose bizarre history and we’ve already examined and more about whom we will learn in this chapter.
And to the extent that McVeigh did have any connections to Arabs prior to the bombing, those operatives were clearly assets of Israel’s Mossad, although McVeigh, most assuredly, did not know that.
So what happened was that the Clinton administration refused to follow Israel’s lead and instead covered up the “evidence” and “links” that Israel’s Mossad laid in place with the intent of convincing the public that there was a “Middle East connection” to the bombing.
This intended “false flag” planted in place by Israel was hauled down by Clinton and company and Timothy McVeigh ended up being the primary patsy. And Israel failed to get its war against Saddam—at least then, anyway.
Next time, though, with 9-11,Israel achieved its goal and the United States went full force into the Middle East, fighting Israel’s wars of survival, launching an all-out offensive against “Muslim terrorism.”
There was indeed, let it be said, a Middle East connection to the Oklahoma bombing, but it was the Israeli connection—not an Arab or Muslim connection.
And although the now-defunct Spotlight largely stood alone in trying to demonstrate to independent-minded people of the point that Andreas Strassmeir and his associates were clear links to an Israeli connection to the Oklahoma bombing, a new book, entitled Oklahoma City: What the Investigation Missed—and Why It Still Matters, comes probably as close as any from a mainstream publisher ever will to hinting the Mossad had a link to the events in Oklahoma City.
The authors—Andrew Gumbel, a distinguished British journalist, and former Marine Lt. Col. Roger Charles—will probably cringe if they read this assessment of their findings, but it is on the mark.
Charles is interesting: A producer on some of ABC’s OKC coverage, he also worked with the late independent OKC investigator John Cash and with McVeigh’s defense team. He and Cash separately visited The Spotlight newspaper to find out what our team knew about the mysterious German, Andreas Strassmeir, whose murky activities linked to McVeigh are—as the book makes clear—a key to understanding OKC
And please note this carefully: McVeigh himself told his cell-mate in federal prison—only to be revealed after McVeigh’s execution—that The Spotlight’s reporting on Strassmeir was on target.
While the book will disappoint many who devoted study to Oklahoma City,churning over minutiae perceived as“evidence”of a conspiracy, the book is “must” reading exactly because it explodes myths many patriots think are “gotcha” items proving a cover-up.
As in the JFK assassination and in 9-11, there are a lot of popular (now legendary) theories founded in misunderstanding, then passed along by word of mouth and from one book to another, and which are now carved in stone in conspiracy lore.
Many well-meaning sleuths contributed to this state of affairs, and in the realm of the circumstances surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing, the authors of this book do a service setting the record straight.
They will upset some folks, but the truth counts, no matter whose feelings are hurt.
However, the book does prove there was a lot of outright cover-up and corruption—and incompetence—that led to the outrageously falsified U.S. government explanation of OKC.
The authors only go so far as to suggest that still-hidden strands of the OKC conspiracy connect to a gang of “white racist” bank robbers— linked to Andreas Strassmeir—who claimed to be motivated by their goal of a “white revolution.”
But it’s obvious the U.S. government was and continues to be determined to suppress all of this since its tentacles could lead toward a realm the government prefers to avoid.
In short, while the authors don’t say it, the truth is—as The Spotlight demonstrated in its ground-breaking OKC coverage—pursuing the “white racist” connection would lead directly to the AntiDefamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith and the Southern Poverty Law Center,both of which were in control of (or monitoring) individuals surrounding Timothy McVeigh.
And one of them was the aforementioned Strassmeir who postured as a “white separatist” but who was, Gumbel and Charles make clear, an intelligence informant protected at the highest levels.
The government did not pursue Strassmeir precisely because he was a direct link to Israeli intelligence, of which the ADL is an American conduit and which often operates on a strategic level with the SPLC. And the evidence indicates that the SPLC was utilizing Strassmeir as one of its agents.The authors outlined Strassmeir’s Israeli connections:
There were things about Andreas Strassmeir that his friends in the revolutionary Patriot Movement did not know and would have been intrigued, or appalled, to find out. Despite his pedigree as the grandson of a Nazi, he was fascinated by Israel and spent three summers on a kibbutz in the Jezreel Valley, near the Golan Heights. He had enrolled in Hebrew classes as a teenager in Berlin, and spoke the language fluently
During his second stint at the kibbutz, he was given an Uzi and put on security detail; during his third, he was sent on patrol on the Green Line between Israel and the West Bank, a job usually reserved for the military.When he was asked in an interview if he had worn an Israeli Defense Force uniform, Strassmeir’s expression changed noticeably and he broke into an embarrassed smile before insisting he had gone out in jeans.
Strassmeir acknowledged that he “bumped into” General Rafael Eitan, the architect of the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon—an encounter captured in a photograph of them at Golan Beach, near Lake Galilee.
And he did not explicitly deny that he had contact with Mossad, the Israeli security service….
Strassmeir was a German army officer by then, and his career took an interesting turn when he returned home:he was seconded to intelligence work….[His] infantry battalion now used him to sniff out East Germany informants and spies. At some stage, Strassmeir was asked to fill in as the head of the battalion’s intelligence unit, which gave him access to the army’s internal reports.
This history strongly suggests that Strassmeir was not the radical right-winger he appeared to be, and might even have been a government agent of some sort,spying on extremists in the United States….
Who might he have worked for? The Germans were certainly interested in intelligence on American radicals, because they worried that money and propaganda materials from the United States were fueling neo-Nazi violence at home. The Israelis were interested, too.
Despite all this—perhaps litigation conscious—the authors court the good will of Strassmeir’s close friend and attorney,Kirk Lyons, wrapping up their eye-opening account of Strassmeir’s Israeli ventures by parroting Lyons’ claim that “Andi” was just a lazy kid they called “Sofameir,” because he was always “sacked out.” Yet one of Lyon’s backers came up with an overnight express of $6,000 cash to help Lyons spirit Strassmeir out of the country when government investigators initially looked in his direction.What do you think?
In fact, as we now know, it was the now-defunct Spotlight—whose reporters went on to found American Free Press—which was the one newspaper that wrote articles about the Oklahoma bombing that Timothy McVeigh privately said “hit very close to home,” and specifically in reference to the activities of Andreas Strassmeir.
Our coverage in The Spotlight was unique (and obviously of interest to McVeigh) in that it focused on the “big picture,” conveying evidence McVeigh was a small cog in a wide-ranging conspiracy involving multiple intelligence agencies and informants working with McVeigh and his inner circle and manipulating their actions. And that, ultimately, to be found in the background, was Israel’s Mossad.
Now much of what The Spotlight first wrote has finally been confirmed for the first time.Although McVeigh publicly claimed he was a “lone bomber,” privately he said The Spotlight was aiming in the right direction, even thwarting his effort to claim a singular role in history.
Two of McVeigh’s friends from death row at the federal prison in Indiana published a book telling the“inside”story of the bombing,based largely on what McVeigh told them really happened. Secrets Worth Dying For, by David Paul Hammer and Jeffrey William Paul, probably comes much closer to the truth than any other book on the subject.
And although McVeigh publicly proclaimed himself as a “lone bomber”—even dismissing the role of his friend, Terry Nichols—McVeigh told a far different version to his friends in prison. As such, what Secrets reported is far more credible than what is found in “mainstream” media books.
The Hammer-Paul book contends that McVeigh was recruited (while still in the military) by one of his superiors to immerse himself in the rhetoric and lifestyle of the American“militia” and “patriot”movements, traveling from gun show to gun show, reporting back his findings. In short, McVeigh was a federal “snitch.”
However, although unusual from a psychological standpoint, McVeigh evidently shared the views of those he was informing on.
Eventually, McVeigh was ordered to organize a team of “extremists” to carry out a terrorist bombing in the United States in order to give the federal authorities the opportunity to crack down on political dissidents in this country. McVeigh did orchestrate a bombing conspiracy (the details of which he reported back to his superiors) and that conspiracy included at least one other undercover informant, the now-notorious Andreas Strassmeir.
McVeigh himself sent a letter to this author, Michael Collins Piper, from his cell on death row at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. Inside the envelope was a print-out of an article about an individual named Cary Gagan who claimed to have inside knowledge about the Oklahoma bombing. In his own handwriting on the print-out, McVeigh wrote, “One lie too many smokes out a con artist,” evidently suggesting that Gagan was a liar.
But what made this note from McVeigh interesting was the fact that never once had I written anything about Gagan. Instead, my writing for The Spotlight focused almost exclusively on the Strassmeir connection.
My immediate reaction to receiving this note from McVeigh was to make the deduction that McVeigh was indirectly communicating to me (through a round-about, indirect means) was that what I actually had written was on the mark.
And now, of course, I have the satisfaction of knowing that I was very much on target, much to the dismay of Andreas Strassmeir, Kirk Lyons and all of their allies and handlers (both here onAmerican soil and in Israel and elsewhere) in the murky world of covert action.
Another odd item that should be mentioned for the historical record—and this is a point that has been widely forgotten, even among the most thorough of the independent Oklahoma City researchers—the existence of another mysterious McVeigh associate: the guy with the red sports car, first brought to attention by British journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard and later publicized by The Spotlight.
Catina Lawson, a young lady in Kansas who came to know McVeigh circa 1992 (when McVeigh was tooling about the country mixing it up the militia groups, white separatists, and Andreas Strassmeir) described the mystery man: “It was weird that summer.There was always this elder gentleman with Tim, mid 40-ish, with a red sports car. He seemed out of place, but he was always around.”
Other witnesses report seeing McVeigh with this same character in Kansas during that same time frame. Yet of all of the players in the Oklahoma affair who have been identified, to one degree or another (however incorrectly, in some cases, we might add), no one—including British journalist Evans-Pritchard who discovered him—seems to have been able to place a name on this chap.
In fact, however, we do know the identity of a close friend (and client) of Kirk Lyons—just like Andreas Strassmeir—who was then (and remains today) active—in a markedly influential but still notably“behind the scenes” fashion—in the white separatist movement. And it just so happens that this individual (at that time) was “mid-40-ish” and known to drive a hot red Fiero sports car.
And it is also known that—at the very time when The Spotlight was publicizing and seeking to identify McVeigh’s friend with the red sports car—the Lyons client in question put his own sports car up for sale,after having painted it over with gold, a process that automotive paint experts say is not only difficult but expensive.
The editorial staff of The Spotlight came to conclude—based on the Lyons-Strassmeir connection to McVeigh and the Oklahoma affair—that this red sports car driving individual was indeed Lyons’ other friend and client, but never reported the name due to certain legal considerations, too complicated to explain here.
But suffice it to say that, long after the Oklahoma bombing, on July 12, 2002, a major Philippine government, The Manila Times, published an odd article which said in part:
United States intelligence officials have released the names of 25 international terrorist suspects believed to have slipped in and out of the Philippines in the last four years…
Little is known about the names on the list. American sources said the individuals on the list come from different organizations and additional information could jeopardize ongoing investigations.
But at least one man, the German Andreas Strassmeir, has been linked to the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
The Philippine newspaper published the list of the 25 names (most of which names were unknown to those of us who had monitored the matter.) However, the name of the Lyons associate—whom we believed to be McVeigh’s friend with the red sports car associated—was on that list, along with Strassmeir.
In some respects the fact that this particular individual popped up in this way was no surprise, inasmuch as we had long ago concluded that this individual was, in fact,someone with some rather unusual connections in what might be called the highest (and lowest) realms. However, at the same time, it was a disturbing (even eerie) underscoring of our suspicions.
And considering the fact this individual’s name had never before been linked publicly to Strassmeir or to published data relating to Oklahoma bombing, it was remarkable, to say the very least, that his name appeared (linked to terrorism) in a Filipino newspaper.
Our international efforts—via the resources of American Free Press (successor to The Spotlight)—to track down the author of the Manila Times article were unsuccessful.
And the red sports car suspect in question seemed to express genuine surprise (when contacted) when he learned that his name had been published in the Filipino journal. He denied ever having traveled to the Philippines, but was, naturally, unable to actually deny with certainty that his identity had ever been used in some way by someone else involved in some international intrigues.
The mystery of the individual with the red sports car will probably never be resolved,but it points further to the global web of intrigue connected to Andreas Strassmeir, his friend and attorney Kirk Lyons and groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League—not to mention the Mossad—that have swirled around dissident political movements in America.
Then, as now, they were using their considerable resources and influence to manipulate individuals and organizations and on April 19, 1993 all of it came together in Oklahoma City.
There is much, much more to the ugly “story behind the story” of the Oklahoma City bombing and in the pages that follow we will explore all of this further.
In his book Others Unknown McVeigh’s defense lawyer, Stephen Jones, noted that, at the very beginning,when he met with Susan Otto— the public defender who initially handled McVeigh’s case before Jones came aboard—she had told him to prepare himself, saying,“When you know everything I know, Stephen, and you will soon enough, you will never think of the United States of America again in the same way.”
And for this own part, Jones said,“the Oklahoma City bombing conspiracy may not merely be the crime itself but also the systematic, deliberate attempt of our federal government to prevent all of us from finding out what exactly happened on that terrible April morning.”
All of those are strong words from two different lawyers who have no reason to make such extraordinary pronouncements. One of them actually worked for the federal government at the time and Jones had a long and distinguished career moving in high government circles, even including service as a ranking staffer on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Neither of these attorneys can be considered “anti-government extremists,” but they certainly had considerable doubts about the U.S. government’s role in the circumstances surrounding the investigation— or rather, the cover-up—of the Oklahoma bombing.
Moving forward, however, we will see that the template for terror that was set in place and which led to the Oklahoma tragedy was clearly not strictly American in origin, but, in many ways, cruelly manipulated and mislead many Americans—including even good people in government service—in a variety of insidious ways.
In some respects,it may not even be too far off to conclude that the American government—for whatever its reasons—may have actually done the American people a service in covering up at least certain aspects of the Oklahoma bombing conspiracy, for, in so doing,they may have helped us avoid a foolish and unnecessary foreign war in the Middle East.If only that had been the case after the subsequent false flag provocation remembered as 9-11.
