It is relatively easy to dismiss the Obama supporters over at Daily Kos for their immediate declarations that Joe Stack, the alleged Austin kamikaze IRS bomber, was a Tea Party fanatic. Daily Kos, after all, is operated by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, the former Reagan youth with connections to the CIA.

It is less easy to dismiss Jonathan Capehart, a blogger for the CIA’s favorite newspaper and cherished Operation Mockingbird asset, The Washington Post.
“I am struck by how [Joe Stack’s] alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement,” writes Capehart. A couple paragraphs later, Mr. Capehart is compares Stack to Timothy McVeigh. “McVeigh was more than disgruntled. He was murderous. And the alienation he felt from his government in 1995 still affects more than we care to admit 15 years later.”
In fact, McVeigh was more than disgruntled. He was a government agent.
In 2007, McVeigh’s supposed co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, said McVeigh was under the control of Larry Potts of the FBI. Potts was the lead FBI agent at Ruby Ridge in 1992 and also was reportedly involved in the 51-day siege against the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas in 1993, which resulted in the murder of 81 Branch Davidians.
Nichols was never allowed to tell the whole story. He was gagged by then Attorney General John Ashcroft.
“Apparently before he had contacted me several years ago he had written to Attorney General Ashcroft, volunteering to tell everything about the bombing and the others involved,” said Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue in 2007. “Not only did no one from Attorney General Ashcroft’s office follow up with Nichols, they actually apparently issued an order barring him from all contact with the media – it was thereafter that he reached out to me and I was able to get in to see him to spend a day and half with him.”
“I didn’t start out to solve the Oklahoma City bombing, I started out to find out who killed my brother and why,” Jesse Trentadue told the Alex Jones Show in February, 2007.
Trentadue’s brother was killed by the FBI, allegedly in a case of mistaken identity because his brother fit the profile of Richard Lee Guthrie, a member of a group called the Midwest Bank Robbery Gang that had been robbing banks to fund an attack on the federal government.
During the process of a lawsuit to get to the bottom of his brother’s murder, Trentadue received documents with names redacted that revealed the FBI’s OKC bombing informants were conducting armed robberies with Timothy McVeigh in order to fund the construction of the fertilizer bomb used in the attack on the federal building.
“One of the foreign informants was actually the explosives instructor who taught him how to make the bomb,” Trentadue told Jones.
In 2008, a video shot at Camp Grafton, North Dakota in 1993 — 18 months before the Oklahoma City bombing — surfaced showing Timothy McVeigh at a base specializing in demolitions training at a time when the FBI claimed he had no military affiliations.
“I think [the FBI] put together this harebrained idea at Elohim City [the Identity movement settlement in Oklahoma] to lure in all these militia groups under the pretense of teaching them how to rob banks in armored cars and attack the federal government and I think they planned to catch them in the act,” said Trentadue.
In addition to the FBI, the Southern Poverty Law Center had a role in creating the supposed terrorist threat centered at Elohim City.
In 2003, the McCurtain Daily Gazette obtained an unclassified copy of a memorandum from the Director of the FBI revealing the SPLC’s role. Dated Jan. 4, 1996, the four-page cable was drafted and issued under the authority of FBI director Louis Freeh and is heavily redacted. However, despite the redaction, the memo exposes an informant operation being conducted at the time by Morris Dees and his notorious SPLC.
“If I told you what we were doing there, I would have to kill you,” Dees later told reporters.
As it turns out, McVeigh’s contact at Elohim City, Andreas Carl Strassmeir, who was allegedly connected to Aryan Republican Army, spent several years in the German army, including a stint as an intelligence officer. Peter Langan, the son of a retired U.S. Marine intelligence officer and said to be the leader of the Aryan Republican Army, was a government informant.
In short, the supposed white supremacist movement at Elohim City was a government operation.
Less than 24 hours after the event in Austin, we still only have a sketchy idea of who Joe Stack was. People say the attack was completely contrary to his character. He was apolitical and not given to diatribes against the government.
Is it possible he was set-up or possibly killed and put in a remote controlled plane that was directed into the Echelon office complex that houses IRS offices in Austin? Considering government complicity in numerous terrorist events — including the documented false flag event of September 11, 2001, and the obvious government operation in Oklahoma City — there is a distinct possibility.
