Congress to hold hearings into OKC bombing

In us congress

In what some on Capitol Hill are calling a surprising decision, U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde has given the nod for hearings into the long-debated question of whether those responsible for the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building had help from any foreign source.

Spurred to action by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., Hyde has given Rohrabacher’s Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the House International Relations Committee the wide-ranging authority to conduct interviews and subpoena documents related to the April 19, 1995, terrorist attack that left 168 dead, 19 of them children.
Interviewed Wednesday, Rohrabacher confirmed that his nearly two-year-long personal investigation into the Oklahoma City tragedy had finally received the necessary support for an official congressional investigation.

“Congressman Hyde has approved my request for hearings into the OKC bombing. The congressional investigation will be limited to our area of focus, which is whether there was a foreign connection to the conspiracy,” Rohrabacher explained.

“I think we know what we’re looking for and I expect complete cooperation from the witnesses we call and the agencies we look to for documents.”

Rohrabacher then emphasized that his office would be keeping the public informed as to the level of cooperation his subcommittee receives during the official phase of this investigation.

“I must be able to assure the families of the victims of this horrible crime that their government cooperated with our investigation. That is very important to our oversight responsibilities,” the congressman said.
