Another OKC researcher I know told me that OKC can be linked to Ted Shackley and Iran-Contra figures.

Just a two thoughta about your info, based on my reading of Joseph trento's Prelude to Terror: The Rogue CIA, the Legacy of America's Private Intelligence Network.  Shackley left CIA in 1979, several years after setting up a private intelligence network with the help of the Safari Club, George H. W. Bush, and the Saudis and their banking network (BCCI, et al.)  In the 1980s and 1990s, Shackley was entirely at the disposal of this private network of front companies, shipping companies, banks, arms companies, etc. 

  • If Shackley, or anyone else in Iran-Contra, were involved in OKC or the militia groups and their ilk, it wouldn't just be through following orders from any authority, it would be because the Iran-Contra crew members could individually rake off a great deal of money for their efforts, laundered through materials or services sales, or received through siphonings from the black budget.  Any funding trail detected should be scrutinized for flow to or from fronts created by Iran-Contra figures.
  • If Shackley and any of the Iran-Contra crew were involved, it would be unlikely that they were cooperating with standard channels in FBI/DoJ and ATF.  Unless they were dealing with so-called "rogues" or alternate channels in these agencies, the I-C crew would be working to deflect attention from rank-and-file law enforcement.

Check out the Trento book and see if this aren't logical propositions.  Shackley wouldn't do a thing in the OKC arena unless he could make hundreds of thousands, or more, out of it.  And he had spent the 1980s evading FBI investigations for Iran-Contra-related deals and money grabs, such as in the EATSCO scandal and the Edwin Wilson frame-up.
