What Really Happened in Oklahoma City?

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but there seems to be a lot of unanswered questions regarding the Oklahoma City bombing. In reading this article on Fox News, these paragraphs stood out:

Some argue the FBI should have looked harder at phone records they used to track McVeigh and Nichols. The records might hold ignored or missed clues that call for a wider investigation, especially the number of calls McVeigh made to the Philippines.

“It's amazing to me that not more has been made of those phone records,” Johnston said.

Repeated calls were made from Terry Nichols' home to a place called Star Glad Lumber in the Philippines.

“Star Glad Lumber is operated by a man whose brother and cousin were both notorious terrorists, splinter groups of the Abu Sayyaf terror group in the Philippines,” according to Johnston, the attorney.

Nichols also repeatedly called a boarding house in Cebu City, an establishment that has been linked to 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi Yousef (search). The same kind of ANFO fertilizer fuel bomb was used in New York and in Oklahoma City.

Huh? McVeigh and Nichols both made calls to overseas numbers known to be connected with well known Islamic terrorists before they blew up a US Federal building? This is the only act of terror on US soil in the past few years NOT attributed to Islamic radicals?

If it weren't for the pathetic foreign policy record of the Clinton Administration I would brush all notion of a conspiracy aside. But given Clinton's obsession with his own legacy, particularly in regards to Middle East peace, I do not think it out of the realm of possibility that Mr. and Mrs. Clinton decided to, for the sake of their own lagacy and theur future political aspirations, pass the problem of Islamis terror to the next administration. Considering the repeated attacks we suffered without retaliation, it seems clear that the Clintons were either unwilling or unable to deal with the threat closing in on our shores.
