OKLAHOMA CITY -- This reporter, along with activist/researchers Chris Emery and Holland Van den Nieuwenhof were special guests on GCN's "Deadline Live" radio show with host Jack Blood on July 18, 2008.

Discussed was explosive information regarding the fact that several witnesses in Oklahoma City have confirmed with eyewitness reports and credit card receipts (from expired government-issued credit cards) that five of the 19 9/11 hijackers were in Oklahoma City.

Among the information discussed, primarily by Emery, included:

That Mohammad Atta and four of his cohorts were sighted in Oklahoma City on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday before 9/11/01.

That three different witnesses see this same group of five men speaking in Middle Eastern language at the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum four days before 9/11.

A volunteer at the museum hears the group being rowdy and disrespectful, tells them to "Shut up" and they leave. Atta was the ringleader of this group. The incident, Emery reported, really shook up the witness.

Additional information covered, includes the fact that witnesses saw the hijackers at an Oklahoma City honky-tonk ordering unusual alcoholic beverages and picking fights with cowboys. The drinks they ordered were paid for using EXPIRED credit cards (March 2001). This never happens. The first three numbers on the credit cards were government specific. One of the hijackers would later show up at the same bar and manhandle a witness. This, AFTER he should have been dead in the plane crash.

Wright who has uncovered information on Nick Berg, Zacarias Moussaoui and later, white suicide bomber Joel Hinrichs, among others. Wright discovered in a 2000 University of Oklahoma student directory that a man with an identical name as a 9/11 hijacker attended the school and the following year a man with a nearly identical name had a school email of

Thanks to Chris Emery, Holland Van den Nieuwenhof, Jack Blood and Michael P. Wright for their research and interest. It's time the real truth of this terrible tragedy to be known.
