Oklahoma Suicide Bomber Had Bigger Plans

Northeast Intelligence Network is reporting that the suicide bomber outside Saturday’s OU/Kansas football game appears to have been planning something bigger than just his own solitary death.

Law enforcement sources close to the Northeast Intelligence Network have confirmed that search and seizure warrants were served today upon the residence of the “suicide bomber,” 21-year-old Joel Henry Hinrichs III of Colorado Springs, CO, who was a resident of the Park View Apartments on campus. Speaking strictly “off the record,” the officials stated that they recovered “a significant amount” of Islamic “Jihad” type literature, some possibly written in Arabic, along with the suspect’s computer. Some of the documentation included material on how to construct bomb-making vests.

Further reports by the same officials indicated that the bomb was detonated prematurely when the suspect was either arming a bomb vest or backpack, which contained TATP, a homemade explosive. TATP (triacetone triperoxide) is a very potent but relatively easily manufactured explosive compound that was used in the July London bombings. It is important to note that TATP has been cited in numerous Jihad bomb-making manuals.

The same officials, requiring anonymity as the investigation is ongoing, continued to confirm that “other un-detonated explosive devices were found in the area cordoned off by police and federal officials.”The young man’s father had an odd quote in this article:

“He was pretty disengaged from politics,” the father said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “And he took the care to select an open area where there was no one around.”

Unless you count the 82,000 football fans 100 yards away…

Update (10/4/2005 11:30PM): News 9 in Oklahoma City reports (video) this evening that Joel Hinrichs attended the Norman Mosque, roomed with a Pakistani student, and tried to buy a large amount of fertilizer (ammonium nitrate) just four days ago.

If that sounds familiar, on the morning of April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh used a rented Ryder truck filled with ammonium nitrate/fuel oil (AMFO) explosive material to attack Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The massive explosion sheared the entire north side of the building, killing 168 people.

So look for the Union scandal...
