Ralph Cinque, Review of Craig Roberts, The Medusa File II: The Politics of Terror and the Oklahoma City Bombing

Ralph Cinque

Medusa was a female monster from Greek mythology, and in his first Medusa book, Craig Roberts revealed crimes and cover-ups of the U.S. government, starting at 1940. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m glad he started at 1940 because there were plenty of U.S. crimes committed during World War II,  such as the nuclear bombing of two civilian population centers in Japan AFTER Japan had already agreed, in principle, to surrender.

I have read one other book on the OK City bombing, The Secret Life of Bill Clinton, by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, about a third of which is devoted to OK City. And that book, like this one, points the blame, ultimately, to then President Bill Clinton.

It’s amazing how Craig got involved in the OK City investigation, and I mean that he was directly and officially involved.  He was sought by the FBI to investigate. At the time, he was a Tulsa police officer, a member of their SWAT team (after having been a Marine sharpshooter in Vietnam), and he was also a police helicopter pilot. But, the FBI official who called him actually cited his work in Kill Zone (one of Criag’s books on the JFK assassination) as the reason they wanted his investigative services.
But, that doesn’t make sense to me because any book that exonerates Oswald and establishes him as a framed patsy, as Craig’s book does, can’t be a friend to the FBI. So, I find it very strange that the FBI would go to Craig and work out a deal with his employer the Tulsa PD for him to spend part of his time investigating the OK City bombing. So, why did they do that?

To answer that, I have to sidetrack. You know that I maintain that Jack Ruby was innocent, that he did not shoot Oswald, that he showed up at the police garage much earlier than reported, that he was jumped and swifted up to the 5th floor jail where he was told that he shot Oswald. He didn’t know it before that. But, he believed them because he was enamored with the Dallas Police, and to an extreme degree. It is bizarre how adoring he was of them. It’s like he was programmed as in The Manchurian Candidate. Ruby had no memory of shooting Oswald and no intention or consciousness of doing it. Ever. IT’S BECAUSE HE DIDN’T DO IT. Jack Ruby was drugged, and I mean heavily drugged on November 24,  including with scopalmine, the “zombie drug”, and he looks like a zombie.  How could someone look like this after not only shooting somebody but completely destroying his own life? Look at his weird stare. That was pharmaceutically induced.


Jack Ruby was MK-ULTRA. He was tricked into going to the garage, first with the Karen Carlin ruse, which got him to the WU office. And then, all it took was the slightest urging, in the drug-induced, mentally-compliant state that he was in, for him to walk down to the police ramp and then down the ramp (no doubt nudged further by the Ops who were there) to the awaiting ambush, and that was about 10:15. And hour later came the televised spectacle, which was all an act, with FBI Agent James Bookhout playing the role of Jack Ruby. The Dallas Police and FBI killed Oswald afterwards, but exactly where and how I don’t know. But, Oswald did die on the operating table at Parkland Hospital.

But, they knew ahead of time that some people were not going to accept the official story of another lone-nut assassin. And, they wanted to make sure those people didn’t get anywhere near the truth of Ruby’s innocence. So, they wrote their own backstory for Ruby,  claiming that he was a Mafioso, a hit man, a gun runner, a pimp, a guy who loved to throw people down stairs and did it often, etc. etc.

There is a whole narrative for Jack Ruby that is complete, total, utter bull shit, and he said so himself. And remember that he accepted that he shot Oswald and was heading for the electric chair for it . So, why would he lie about having been a gunrunner, a Mafioso, an undercover agent for Richard Nixon, or any of the other wild claims that are made about him?  He wouldn’t. He couldn’t. He didn’t. It’s all a smokescreen.

Well, the same thing happened in OK City. They wanted to establish Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols as the two lone nuts, three if you count Michael Fortiere, but the plan was to keep the conspiracy crowd busy dwelling on militia groups, particularly the one in Elohim City, Oklahoma, to which McVeigh supposedly had ties.  But, as Craig said himself, those militia people would have been more likely to defend the Murrah Building than blow it up. I think the FBI sought Craig because he was a noteable truthdigger who happened to be a police officer, and they pointed him to the Elohim City enclave as a diversion.
It was noise. But, Craig is a very bright guy, and he quickly figured it out. Do you remember in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, when they ditched one of their horses to make it look like they split up, and the elite lawmen following them were briefly fooled by it but quickly saw through it? Well, that’s what happened here, and the elite lawman in this case was Craig Roberts, and he found no ties for McVeigh to militia groups other than him having gone to a  rally uninvited.

So, what did Craig find? He found that many witnesses were being ignored, including those who saw two men get out of the Ryder truck; witnesses who reported seeing suspicious men who looked Middle Eastern at the scene, for instance, a witness reported seeing McVeigh with a Middle Eastern man with a tattoo on his arm of Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard, later identified as Husseini al Hussein; a total of 5 witnesses saw McVeigh in the Ryder truck with a Middle Eastern man with black curly hair; witnesses who said that the bombing smelled of sulfur rather than ammonium, as a fertilizer bomb would smell. No one reported smelling ammonium.

There were a lot of cut columns and cut rebar. How could an oil-soaked fertilizer bomb do that?- Craig asked. And it was apparent that the building was blown outward, not inward. And did you know that the building was designed to be bomb-proof from outside explosives?

The bottom line was that there were bombs in the building. Oil-soaked fertilizer in the back of a Ryder truck could not do this:

Craig cited the numerous reports of multiple and sequential bombs going off, and of course that is similar to 9/11 where victims and firefighters reported a sequence of explosions prior to collapse.

Then, there was the weird action of hustling files and records out of the building before they would allow rescue workers in. They actually delayed getting aid to victims in order to get records out. This was when lives were at stake. One has to wonder if some of the dead could have been saved if not for this delay. Just to be clear: rescue workers had to sit on their hands waiting for files to be removed from the building before they could go in and search for wounded, trapped people.

Two seismic events were reported by the Oklahoma Seismic Center, and Craig says that the tape, which he saw, actually showed 3.  Did you know that, initially, it was said to be a standard Ryder  truck, but later it became a larger box-truck for a growing quantity of fertilizer?   Craig pointed out that the ammonium that people didn’t smell would have been a serious and potentially fatal choking hazard.

Craig made a list of incongruities, including: Ryder truck full of fertilizer could not have caused the damage; the crater was too small, only 8 to 12 feet across; damage to the building and cut columns and rebar means there were shaped charges or plastic explosives on the columns; the building was quickly demolished, hauled off, and buried; all video tapes immediately seized and rendered classified; police and firefighters reported that they saw federal agents removing “unexploded devices” from the building;  Bomb expert General Benton Partin said that the asymmetrical damage could not have resulted from a truck bomb, that explosives had to be placed on columns at 4 critical junctions, was barred from the investigation; Jane  Graham who saw two government workers puttying something to the columns in the parking garage two days before not allowed to testify.

Even Governor Frank Keating first said that other devices were found in the building, until that story became inoperative.

Then,  there  were the strange, untimely deaths, and the list is about as long as with JFK, and realize that Craig wrote a book on the suspicious deaths in that case.  Sergeant Terrance Yeakey of the OK City PD was one of the first officers on the scene, and he said the official story was bull shit. He was found dead a year later with 11 lacerations and a small gunshot  wound to the right temple from a silenced weapon, and it was ruled a suicide. He had a young family. He was devoted to them. He never would have killed himself. The man was traumatized, battered, with damage to his face and head.  And I’ll point out that he was African-American.

I won’t go into them individually; you’ll have to read the book; but here are some other dead Murrah bombing witnesses: Mike Loudenslager, Dr. Don Chamley, Glenn Wilburn, Ted Richardson, Alan G. Whicher, Gary Webb, Joey Gladden, Mark Anthony  Finnigin, and Michael Abbot.

Craig has a whole chapter on why it’s likely that McVeigh was a “Manchurian Candidate” and it is fascinating.  Do you know who they sent to treat McVeigh? It was Dr. Louis Joylan West! The same efffin’ CIA doctor, the “Maestro of Mind Control” whom they sent to treat Jack Ruby!

You are going to have to read the book to find out all that Craig uncovered about this, but I will tell you that I suspected as much before I read the book, and it was from McVeigh’s interview with Ed Bradley. I could tell immediately that McVeigh was not of right mind, that he was not in touch with reality, that he was delusional.

So, what’s the bottom line? Where does the buck stop in this case? Craig says it goes to and stops on William Jefferson Clinton. And those records and files being swifted out of the building? Craig says they were related to the CIA Mena, Arkansas drug running operation, which reportedly done with the knowledge of and involvement of then Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton. Those files were moved to the Murrah Building in Oklahoma, and that’s why that building was chosen to be the target, says Craig.

So, it looks like Timothy McVeigh was another in a long line of Manchurian Candidate pseudo-assassins, including Jack Ruby, Sirhan Sirhan, James Earl Ray, Mark David Chapman, John Hinckley, but do you who know who was not a Manchurian Candidate? Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald was of sound mind, and he did a lot of damage while in custody those last two days of his life. Shit yes.

The book, The Medusa File II, The Politics of Terror and The Oklahoma City Bombing (2017) by Craig Roberts is great. It is thorough, well reasoned, and also very well written. And it will scare the shit out of you about what went down. God damn it, are they going to come after me next? For the record, I would never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever commit suicide.

Craig is an amazing guy, and he should write his life story before he passes from this world because he has lived an amazing life. This book is illuminating, and it is important for our time. That things like this can happen in our world is frightening.

  1. After graduation, infantry officer training at Quantico, VA; then articlery officer training at Ft. Sill in Lawton, OK; two weeks R&R then 13 months in the Far East with the 1st Battalion, 12ht Marines, 3rd Marine Division (with training ops in Japan, Korea,Formosa and the Philippines (with our base in Okinawa); then a year as a series commander with 15 DIs and 300 recruits under my command through the training cycle, then moved up to RTR Headquarters to revised the curriculum from one on which we could train 8,000 Marines in 11 weeks to one where we could train 11,000 Marines in 8 weeks using the same facilities. Resigned my commission as a Captain, USMC, to enter graduate school in the History and Philosophy of Science at Indiana University, where I earned my Ph.D. in 1970 and assumed my first position at the University of Kentucky, which was the beginning of a 35-year professional career in higher education.


    1. Be patient with Professor Fetzer. Now that he’s facing financial ruin, he’s most likely pleading with his children for a loan and a place to live out his final years. And all because the arrogant bastard couldn’t come clean about his military lies.

      Just as a reminder: James Henry Fetzer did not serve in the USMC. He has spent his entire adult life lying about it. I have proven him a liar. He has failed to refute me. Such a tragic, pitiful downfall for an otherwise gifted academic.


      1. This guy is one sick puppy. Not only have I refuted his absurd allegations, but I have done so again and again. Here’s another: http://jamesfetzer.org/wp-content/uploads/James-H.-Fetzer-USMC-1962-66.jpg where I was commissioned upon graduation from Princeton (in my whites), was photographed with the Regimental Training Headquarters staff at the USMC Recruit Depot in San Diego (in my khakis) and had my bars pinned on by my first wife (in my greens) when I was promoted to Captain, USMC.

      2. It’s funny that mikelewis is using the same type evidence you use to say Noah is really Michael Vabner.

      3. I guess that’s supposed to be the “punch line”! I have been puzzled by such an obvious piece of buffoonery appearing here again and again, but then why should I be surprised that you and yours should resort to a childish attack–which is another fabrication–when the death certificate is a fabrication, the social security care is fake, and the passport is counterfeit. We all know that Hollywood, especially, is good at finding body doubles and face doubles. All of us are aware that there are other persons who bear a certain resemblance to us. I strongly suspect, for example–and I am not alone in this suspicion–that Ruth Bader Ginsberg departed this Earth several months aga and that a look-alike is playing her role. That one should be testable.

        But few would try to turn a similarity in resemblance between me and John McCain (whom I hold in contempt) into the absurd contention that I was not a commissioned officer in the US Marine Corps! Just because there are persons who look a lot like us does not mean they are one and the same. But what are the odds that the fake victim of Sandy Hook, “Noah Pozner”, would turn out to look just like this older step-brother, Michael Vabner? When you put the pieces together, that fits and explains the data with regard to how they faked the kids. I suspect that the McCain comparison begins with a photo already morphed to look more like me. But there is no mistaking that “Noah” is a fiction made up out of photos of Michael Vabner as a child.

      4. But what are the odds that the fake victim of Sandy Hook, “Noah Pozner”, would turn out to look just like this older step-brother, Michael Vabner?

        Why do you keep getting that wrong? They were not step-brothers, they were half-brothers, it’s a very big difference. Step-brothers having any resemblance would be unusual.

      5. I have half-brothers and a half-sister galore. None of us look like any of the others. The probability that they would share the same eyes, the same eyebrows, the same nose, the same mouth, the same ears and the same shape of skull and not be the same person are infinitesimal. You are doing your best to maintain the fraud, but it’s a losing proposition. Sorry!

      6. They don’t share the same ears and you know it, that’s why you accused me of tweaking the photos of Noah and Michael

        This is your evidence, look at the blue circle. You can see the edge of Noah’s ear sticking out.


        And here are Michael and Noah separately:


      7. It’s interesting that Cory Sklanka, the 3rd defendant in the lawsuit Jones/Halbig are in, was able to get an attorney. James Tracey had one. So Sandy Hook is obviously not off limits for all attorney’s. Fetzer should have talked to Tracey or Sklana’s attorney’s to see if they could recommend someone.

      8. Poor, pathetic little person that you are, I have nothing but respect and admiration for Dr. Fetzer. Whereas, for you, I have pity, disdain and disrespect as I see a person who has likely accomplished nothing and can do nothing but sling lies, falsehoods and criticisms at a man whose shoes you could not even shine.

  2. During engineering school, I spent summers building high rise buildings similar to the Murrah building’s construction but in the 15 to 20 story size range. You should see what goes into them. We would build a floor a week. One such project was four buildings going up at Towson State University simultaneously in a diamond pattern. I was on the wall crew and once a week we would trade places with the deck crew and the other pair of buildings would do the same. I not only helped assemble the forms, I would pour the concrete and vibrate it around the massive steel rebar that was connected to the ends of the last wall’s rebar sticking out of the last freshly poured deck. You want to talk about rock solid construction, this personified it. No way in hell would an aircraft could take this structure down and it would laugh at a truck bomb. One thing I will say is that we poured walls late into the evening. The superintendent wasn’t there and only a foreman. It would have been easy to drop bombs into the walls without anyone knowing. There was just three laborers and a foreman barely paying attention

  3. No wonder the first post above to this reviewer who completely ignored Choosing the Light was to ask what happened to Codey Snodgres. “I think he told his stories until he had nothing left” is incredibly insulting. I hope Jim Fetzer realizes and corrects this appalling condescension and invites Mr Snodgres to review this book review and the book.

    1. Correction: “first post” – by Bahmi. Subsequent posts by others rightly echo Bahmi’s observation regarding wierd silence of book reviewer to Cody Snodgres, it is indeed ironic diversion by book reviewer who belittles and insults Snodgres to
      ignorance in general of American public!

    2. Let’s not choose to forget the First Amendment as we discuss the Cody Snodgres issue. Having listened to Cody myself several times, I would say he is amply prepared to answer any/all questions related to his job offer to blow up the Oklahoma city building and I’d also say he is no tenderfoot when it comes to willingness to face the music and defend his positions. First, listen to his tapes and make your own conclusions. Things can get a might testy on these discussions, all part of the elucidation issues related to ferreting out truths, or separating wheat from chaff. Cody tells some interesting stories, let’s revisit his tapes and see if we come up with a new slant on the veracity issues some people might have.

      1. For myself, following these rabbit holes only serves Empire’s purpose. It will suck up time like a vacuum and eat up energy to no avail.

      2. Looks like we’ve got a new jackass in the interrogation department. Got a hunch, maybe I’m wrong, you tend to smell kinda shillish to me. Are you a shill or just another smartass, Pete? C’mon, ‘fess up.

    3. I’m relieved to ascertain Prof. Dr. Abbe’s first name is NOT “Will” but Winfried. “Will” must be descendant of William of Ockham, who revised the doctrine of free will by somehow eliminating thinking, which “Will”
      has indeed demonstrated by his repeated thoughtless commands here in this comment section.

      1. Nope..no relative of mine…and my name is not William.
        In this country, you may have noticed most surnames carry lineage, not first names.
        Hey, if the command fits, wear it…otherwise babble on.

  4. What ever happened to the guy named Cody Snodgres who was allegedly offered the job of setting up the explosives in the building prior. He’s been on many good radio shows swearing up and down to have been offered the job. Yes, no, maybe?

      1. He mentioned no names, but he insisted he was a trained seismologist/geologist with an advanced degree. I do not remember who gave him the explosives job offer but he was interviewed by a number of radio hosts and I believe his interviews are still available for listening. Was he legit, or not? Ralph, tell us if he was just another ten cent liar and quote sources, if you can. Gotta have those sources, ya know.

      2. Do everybody and yourself a favor and read Snodgres’ book online pdf first before
        mumble-jumble, ok?

    1. Good question. I think he told his stories until he had nothing left. But they were damn good stories that made sense. Nothing will wake up the stupid American people.

      We now live on a slave plantation ruled by a heavy handed police state. And most people don’t seem to notice.

      1. They are so in debt, having to work a ridiculous numbers of hours to satisfy the debt, they have no energy for anything other than sitting in front of the box, falling asleep.
        It’s pitiful.
        But I cannot blame the average Joe or Jane because they are victims of an insidious system that steals their lives from the moment they are born and signed over to the state as chattle.
