April 19, 1995 Bombing Victims Group

Victims of Terrorism Information and Vital Exchange Services
Widows and widowers of the Oklahoma City Bombing formed V.O.T.I.V.E.S in August of 2001. Our aim was to help fellow bombing victims in obtaining assistance wherever it was needed, to be a collective voice of the people; where just one voice was never heard. This core group has been together since the bombing of April 19, 1995. We have grown to include bombing survivors, family members, and concerned citizens from across the nation.
Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s report entitled The Oklahoma City Bombing: Was There A Foreign Connection? By the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House International Relations Committee, clearly omitted additional information in Congressman Rohrabacher’s possession. We know this as fact, because we sent every member on that committee the hundreds of pages of documentation in our possession. Therefore, we hope that the omissions are due to his turning over the additional information to a Domestic Oversight Committee for further investigation. Ideally, Congressional Hearings with full investigatory powers would be given them to follow all foreign and domestic leads; including, and not limited, to our own governments involvement of prior knowledge. A “Special Investigator” would then investigate agencies he/she has no ties to so that agencies are not involved in investigating themselves. These hearings too would allow for full disclosure to the American people.
As presented in Rohrabacher’s Report, we hope that the newly sworn in 110 Congress will take a serious stance against those in the FBI and the Department of Justice who impeded the original investigation, the capture of John Doe 2, and “Others Unknown, into the Oklahoma City Bombing. We also hope, this newly elected Congress “of the people”, will investigate further and bring to justice, those that had prior knowledge of the bombing and did nothing to prevent it, as outlined in court released documents and FBI 302’s obtained by Jesse Trentadue in his FOIA suite against the FBI. We contend that the senseless death and carnage of that day, which was forced on our loved ones, citizens and innocent children, could have been prevented.
Evidence from the above-mentioned report shows the Oklahoma City Bombing case and the “then worst terrorist attack” on American soil is still an open murder investigation. With “others unknown” not yet apprehended, there is still a security threat to our country.
We ask, too, that a domestic subcommittee investigation take seriously the claims by Terry Nichols and David Paul Hammer of knowing the “others unknown” as outlined in their sworn affidavits. These affidavits/declarations can be found in their entirety on Intelwire.com. Terry Nichols 11-page affidavit outlines his knowledge of others unknown and how he has been prevented from getting this information out to the public.
On January 4, 2007, the House of Representatives stood solemnly and prayed over this country and the offices they now hold in the 110 Congress. A portion of their prayer was that, “… the legislators of the 110 Congress may challenge, inspire and lead them to put aside self interests, to pursue the common good of all the people of this nation, and of especially of those who need them the most.”
We, the victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing are among those that need you most! This country needs you to stand for Justice, where Justice has not been served.
