FTR #60 Oklahoma City Bombing Update

Lis­ten now: One Seg­ment

Updat­ing the analy­sis of the Okla­homa City bomb­ing pre­sent­ed in the series enti­tled Spe­cial­ized Knowl­edge and Abil­i­ties, this seg­ment details the inves­ti­ga­tion into a Ger­man fas­cist named Andreas Strass­meier. The son of Gun­ther Strass­meier, Ger­man Chan­cel­lor Hel­mut Kohl’s for­mer chief of staff, Strass­meier was the secu­ri­ty direc­tor for Elo­him City, a white-suprema­cist com­pound fre­quent­ed by con­vict­ed bomber Tim­o­thy McVeigh. An ATF infor­mant who infil­trat­ed the com­pound alleges that Strass­meier was the mas­ter­mind of the bomb­ing and that he exert­ed a pro­found con­trol over Tim­o­thy McVeigh, a known Strass­meier asso­ciate. The pro­gram sets forth the actu­al text of an Okla­homa State Patrol bul­letin con­cern­ing Strass­meier, issued in the after­math of the bomb­ing, as well as the text of a diplo­mat­ic cable in which the Ger­man gov­ern­ment lies in deny­ing knowl­edge of Strass­meier’s extrem­ist activ­i­ties. The broad­cast also dis­cuss­es the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the Ger­man cov­er-up of the Strass­meier sit­u­a­tion may be intend­ed to pre­vent embar­rass­ment of the Kohl gov­ern­ment that could result in its elec­toral defeat.
