FBI Informants Embedded in the Media Print E-mail

How free is the American press when there are FBI (and CIA) informants embedded in them revealing confidential sources and falsify reports. A classified FBI memo was recently discovered which details direct relations between a journalist (working at CBS News) and the FBI. The Washington bureau chief for CBS News denied on Tuesday that he served as an FBI informant during the agency's investigation into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Chris Isham, who previously worked at ABC News, was said to be the anonymous journalist cited in a once-classified FBI memo.

The memo -- which was recently discovered by Utah lawyer Jesse Trentadue, who has spent years researching the Oklahoma City case -- claims the journalist contacted the FBI hours after Timothy McVeigh's terrorist attack. The reporter passed on information -- which ultimately proved untrue -- "that a source within the Saudi Arabian Intelligence Service advised that the Oklahoma City bombing was sponsored by the Iraqi Special Services."

The journalist “advised that a source within the Saudi Arabian Intelligence Service advised that the Oklahoma City bombing was sponsored by the Iraqi Special Services who contracted seven (7) former Afghani Freedom Fighters out of Pakistan,” an April 17, 1996 FBI memo states, recounting the then-ABC journalist’s interview with FBI agents a year earlier on the evening of the April 19, 1995 bombing.(The Iraqi connection, of course, never materialized.)

 

Questions

  • Who is Chris  Isham?
  • Why would he implicate Iraq in the OKC bombing?
  • Was he part of a larger Neocon plot?
