J.D. Cash: Strassmeir Worked For The FBI

I've taken the unusual step of linking an external story from the front page of the site. J.D. Cash and Roger Charles of the McCurtain Gazette have published a story saying an unnamed source and a government document confirm that Andreas Strassmeir was working for the FBI and German intelligence in some capacity during the period around the Oklahoma City bombing.

Strassmeir was associated with militia groups in the U.S. over the course of several years. Timothy McVeigh called him prior to the bombing, and a variety of reports have linked him to the plot and to a gang of white supremacist bank robbers known as the Aryan Republican Army.

I don't have access to the sources cited by Cash and Charles, but their reporting has been consistently solid and their details have on several occasions been confirmed in documents obtained by INTELWIRE through independent channels.

I've included links to a few INTELWIRE reports on Strassmeir and the ARA below.

"...smart, granular analysis..."

ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."

Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
