On July 20, 1997 Jane Graham,
On July 20, 1997 Jane Graham, a ninth floor survivor of the Murrah federal building bombing in Oklahoma City, made a video affidavit after she watched the video "Cover-Up In Oklahoma." In that video, she recognized seeing two men who were caught on camera walking hurriedly away from the building after the bombing holding walkie-talkies. She says that she had noticed these men in the building prior to the bombing wearing General Services Administration (GSA) maintenance uniforms that she did not recognize as GSA employees. She previously wrote the following memo late last year which I am reposting for the benefit of those who have not seen seen it previously or heard of Jane Graham or this controversy before. =========================================================
November 15, 1996 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: SUBJECT: MURRAH BUILDING BOMBING/INFORMATION AND MIS-INFORMATION WHAT IS THE REAL TRUTH, WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT BEING PUT UNDER OATH? WHY IS INFORMATION BEING SCREENED TO DETERMINE WHAT IS PUT OUT TO THE PUBLIC AND GIVEN TO DEFENSE? WHY DOES THERE APPEAR A UNIFORM CONSPIRACY TO ONLY GIVE PART OF THE FACTS/STATEMENTS/TRUTH ABOUT THE MURRAH BOMBING? FROM: JANE C.GRAHAM PUBLIC HOUSING SPECIALIST - FACILITIES MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT AND PRESIDENT, AFGE LOCAL 3138
This is my statement regarding the above. Approximately the last week of August, 1995, I contacted the FBI and spoke with a Mr. Joe Schwecke regarding the bombing and told him about events which I was aware of the week before the bombing. I made an appointment with him for Tuesday the 5th of September. HE never showed up. I again called and set up another appointment for the following week and that was never kept. On September 12, (I believe this is the correct date), I had and interview with a female agent in the Office of Native Americans/HUD at 500 W. Main, OKC. There were several agents there asking a set series of questions regarding the bombing as she explained to me. These same questions were asked to everyone within a 10 block radius. The questions were very basic, and few. When we were finished she said that was all and I said I was not finished. I told her of the previous report I had given Agent Schwecke and I wanted to know why no one asked questions about the week before the bombing and if anyone saw anything suspicious.
APPARENTLY THE FBI WAS NOT INTERESTED IN ANY TIME OTHER THAN THE MONDAY OR TUESDAY THE WEEK OF THE BOMBING!!!! AND ONLY IF THE RESPONSES POINTED DIRECTLY TO MCVEIGH. My question is why is it that they (FBI) were only interested if information was related to McVeigh? It appears that the FBI had and agenda which was to only target McVeigh and Nichols. The FBI conveniently dropped John Doe 2. Does the FBI believe that I as a citizen and a government employee and a survivor of the bombing, having been in the building at that time when it occurred, is so nave that I can't see through what has and is being orchestrated by Washington? I contacted the FBI first by phone then by letter to inform them of three (3) men who I saw on the 2nd level of the parking garage the week before. The 2nd level of the parking garage is that level which is directly below the street level and customer parking.
These three men were standing just west of the double doors leading to the elevator, behind an older station wagon parked on the south side. They had a set of plans which appeared to be of the Murrah building. The reason I assumed the plans were of the Murrah building is they were obviously disagreeing on something and pointing to areas in the garage. Two of the men were approximately 5'8" and one man 6'1 ro 2". Two men were brown hair, the tallest had very dark hair almost black and a mustache. He was wearing black cowboy boots, jeans and jacket and a cowboy hat. His hair was collar length. The other two men wore jeans one had a brown plaid short sleeved shirt and obviously lifted weights. At first I thought as I studied them they were with the phone company because I saw what looked like telephone wiring. Cream colored but short pieces. He also had a paper bag with something in it. We had been having some telephone difficulty off and on in the building and that was the first thing that popped in my mind. But then I thought why would they be in the garage? They are always on a floor at the closet area when they are fixing a problem and would not be in the garage. Next I thought they must be with the gas company.
There have been over the years gas leaks and maybe they were there for that purpose. As I studied these 3 men they were also watching me. At that time the man in the brown plaid shirt said something to the other man and he went to the station wagon and put the sack and wiring in the wagon behind the driver's seat and returned to the group. They watched me until I went through the doors to the elevator. I had first thought of going up to them but thought they must have approval to be there in the building and they did have plans which they were discussing. The man in the brown shirt obviously knew what he was doing and was in charge even though you could tell there was disagreement among them. He reminded me of a surveyor or construction foreman except that I doubt that they would have been in that good of shape. These men were definitely physically well trained. I had intended to go to GSA but since I was in a hurry to get to work, I let it go by. Regrettably I wish now I had taken the time to go to GSA or to have gone up and talked to these men. When I first told my story the only question asked was "Was one of the men McVeigh?" I told the agent absolutely not. Then I was asked can I positively identify the three men? I told him I didn't think I could be positive, and NO ONE HAD ASKED ME TO VIEW ANY PICTURES OF ANYONE. I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN SEEING WHO WAS STAFFED IN THE ATF, FBI AND SECRET SERVICE PRIOR TO THE BOMBING AND IF THESE MEN I SAW WERE EMPLOYED BY ANY OF THESE AGENCIES.
I believe they were afraid I might be able to identify someone they did not want me to identify. I do have a good memory and I will continue to seek out and watch for these men to reappear and when I do I will confront them. This is not over. Also, Germaine Johnston, who also works for HUD saw and spoke to McVeigh perhaps as much as 10 minutes after in the alley where he was "parked" sitting outside his car on the ground around on the passengers side along with John Doe 2. McVeigh asked her if anyone was killed. She replied, yes a lot were. At that point shaken, he got into his car and drove off by himself. John Doe 2 departed on foot. Now I ask you, does that sound like a man who was running? I don't think so. It sounds like a plan that went awry or something he did not know was going to happen. These are just samples of stories which can be told and have not been given t the defense attorney. I DID FURNISH MY TESTIMONY TO JONES AS WELL AS FBI. GERMAINE FURNISHED HER'S TO THE FBI, THEY DID NOT GIVE THAT INFORMATION TO JONES. BUT HE HAS BEEN TOLD ABOUT IT AND SHE WILL BE INTERVIEWED BY ONE OF HIS ASSOCIATES.
