Attorney General Eric Holder certainly has much to answer for and it is even possible that after so many years, the Attorney General might be close to paying his dues to the Trentadue family for his role in obstructing the investigation into the death of Kenneth Michael Trentadue back in 1995.
Right now, all eyes are on Fast and Furious, a program of the ATF that was overseen by the DOJ with Holder at the helm of that agency.
Operation Fast and Furious
Members of Congress calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s immediate resignation
WASHINGTON – New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.
The public is rightfully angry and they have their eyes trained on Holder so it is no surprise that a recent article posted by the American Free Press attacking Attorney General Holder caught some attention. The problem with the article is that it was inaccurate and unsubstantiated.
It wouldn’t be worth mentioning except that the flawed information could do a real disservice to a gentleman that has been working for years to try and right a wrong and in the process has uncovered a huge amount of damning information related to the OKC bombing and been a great thorn in Eric Holder’s side to boot.
Articles like the one put out by the AFP (which has been removed as of yesterday) are a distraction from the facts which are explosive enough that they need no embellishment.
Jesse Trentadue is a Salt Lake City attorney and was recently interviewed about his ongoing efforts to obtain justice for his brother in the newly released documentary “A Noble Lie“. He has been pursuing justice for the murder of his brother, Kenneth Trentadue, since 1995. Kenneth died while he was in federal custody at the Oklahoma City Federal Transfer Center and the federal government, including Eric Holder, has blocked any investigation of Kenneth Trentadues’ death at every turn.
“Trentadue’s and Trentadon’ts” is telling verbiage used in email memos obtained by Jesse Trentadue from the DOJ in which the coverup is referred to as the “Trentadue Mission” and is characterize as being like the “The Invasion of Normandy”
“Mr. Holder’s job was to cover-up my brother’s murder, basically to stop all inquiry,” said Trentadue, saying the e mails were “inflammatory,” referring as they do to “Trentadue’s and Trentadon’ts”. link
The erronous AFP article makes the allegation that Eric Holder managed an FBI operation that provided explosives to Tim Mcveigh and Terry Nichols right before the OKC bombing. AFP attributes this information to documents produced as a result of Jesse Trentadue’s legal battles over the death of his brother. The information revealed by Jesse Trentadue’s battle is eye opening and incredibly important but what is alleged by AFP is not what these documents show.
Distortion of the facts produces sensational headlines like this;
These writers seem to have their facts mixed up which is a shame because there really is a story here that deserves to be told correctly and with the correct source documents. Others in the blogosphere have noted the same. Here and here
The AFP writes;
Eric Holder, current attorney general of the United States, managed an FBI operation that provided explosives to Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols just prior to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, according to official documents released during the ongoing investigation into government foreknowledge of the supposed terrorist attack.
. . . Holder had authorized the FBI to provide explosives to Nichols and McVeigh, then lost track of both the explosives and their targets

Another inaccuracy that should be addressed is that the AFP mistakenly identifies Kenneth Trentadue as a government informant. Kenneth Trentadue was probably killed due to a case of mistaken identity. The person that Kenneth was mistaken for could have been a government informant but nothing at all suggests that Kenneth himself was.
I spoke with Jesse Trentadue by phone yesterday afternoon about the AFP article and here is what he had to say about the matter;
“Mr. Holder has done a lot for which he should be impeached. However, he did not become Deputy Attorney General until 1997, which was two years after the Oklahoma City Bombing. Mr. Holder, therefore, obviously had no, direct or indirect, involvement in the Bombing itself.”
He doesn’t let Holder off easy though.
“That said, I believe that the Oklahoma City Bombing was some how related to a sting operation by the FBI called “PATCON,” which was in operation throughout most of the 1990s and Mr. Holder most certainly would have known about PATCON. I also believe that Mr. Holder, as Deputy Attorney General, helped to keep the truth about the Oklahoma City Bombing from the American people.”
PATCON Short for “Patriot Conspiracy”, is a very interesting FBI operation that is threaded through some of the most shocking acts of violence that occurred in the 1990’s. Information regarding PATCON has been very tough to uncover, however that may be changing.
From a Nov 21, 2011 posting by the Sipsey Street Irregulars;
I also knew from sources, living and dead, that PATCON was the worst scandal that the FBI ever perpetrated. PATCON could sink the FBI, perhaps permanently, and along with the Gunwalker Scandal, totally discredit the teflon coating that the Bureau has excreted around its corrupt core
. . .And now we know what a cabal of New York editors under pressure from a frightened FBI and nervous White House can do to the story of the greatest crime ever perpetrated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation — they can gut it, reducing it almost to innocuousness, all to protect criminals who hide behind federal badges and to shield the politicians who sent them.
. . .Sources in advance of the story said that FBI was very afraid of this article. “They don’t want PATCON mentioned,” said one source. “Not ever, by anybody. Because it leads to OKBOMB (the FBI name for the Oklahoma City bombing case), Elohim City (Oklahoma, a Christian Identity community), (German undercover agent Andreas Carl) Strassmeier, the McVeigh-Strassmeier connection, the Aryan Republican Army, the whole shebang.”
I recommend keeping a close eye on the Sipsey Street Irregulars for dependable information regarding this story. We may indeed be in the verge of a great unraveling as hinted to by SSI in their Nov 21, article;
There are many more dark corners of PATCON that have yet to be explored and Mr. Matthews will certainly be an excellent tour guide for some enterprising reporter who doesn’t work for Tina Brown and who is willing to get to the truth.
There are even links from PATCON to the Gunwalker Scandal.
. . .Future articles here at Sipsey Street will explore the details of the murder of Kenney Trentadue and Eric Holder’s role in covering them up. It will also deal with the tale of how a U.S. Attorney in Arizona made the proffer to McVeigh associate Michael Fortier in order to flesh out the “lone bomber theory” and divert attention away from Elohim City, the Aryan Republican Army and federal undercover informant Andreas Carl Strassmeier.
The name of that United States Attorney was Janet Napolitano.
Disregard disinfo and keep pressing for the truth. If you want to get current on the facts of the Oklahoma City Bombing, get a copy of the newly released documentary by Free Mind Films; A Noble Lie, Oklahoma City 1995.

Covering up murder
In a letter [dated Dec. 19 2008] to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy late last week, Trentadue charged that Eric Holder — a Deputy Attorney General during the Clinton Administration — took part in covering up the alleged murder of Trentadue’s brother, Kenneth, in August 1995. Trentadue included copies of several internal Justice Department documents which he alleges show Holder’s role in a cover-up.
