FBI explanation of missing Oklahoma City bombing tapes not credible, judge says

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge on Wednesday continued to question the FBI’s explanation for not producing videotapes associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that a Salt Lake lawyer has sought for nearly six years.

“It’s quite astounding that documents as important as these went missing and the FBI says, ‘Well, they’re gone,'” U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said during a motion hearing.

At issue is whether the FBI adequately responded to Jesse Trentadue’s Freedom of Information Act request for footage of Timothy McVeigh parking a truckload of explosives at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995. Specifically, the Salt Lake attorney is after a building surveillance tape and dashcam video from the Oklahoma state trooper who stopped McVeigh 90 minutes after the explosion that killed 168 people.

The FBI has submitted several declarations from its top records manager to show the agency has searched electronic databases and evidence warehouses without success. But Waddoups said the declarations lack credibility because they do not include firsthand knowledge or details about who, when, where or how the searches were conducted.

“That’s not good evidence,” he said.

Waddoups delayed ruling on the FBI’s motion to dismiss the case and allowed the agency until June 15 to provide a more complete explanation of the searches.

“This is a matter of significant public interest,” the judge said, adding it’s time for it to be resolved.

    I picked this article up 4/20/2012. Where is the mainstream media in regards to cover-ups by criminals within our government. These people act with impunity and We the People need to “wake up and smell the coffee.” I remember the day the Murrah Federal Building was bombed, it was horrible and to think that this might be tied into Bill Clinton’s ’95 executive order#12858 for sustainable developement in which Oklahoma was pulling away from. I went to the ICLEI web page and looked at the membership list for our country, this is scary. Tulsa is the only city in OK on this list. Look into this. It is like a bad movie plot but it is really happening. The bombing tapes are not the only missing evidence, per eye witnesses, a bomb squad was in front of the Murrah Building prior to the bombing.
    I will be e-mailing and posting this to whoever, whenever, however….this is not our government per se but our government has enemies within and I think their motto goes something like “the ends justify the means.” We’re all expendable tp these U.N. globalist goons and we need to shout out against their tyranny and expose them for who they are.
    VOTE FOR OUR FUTURE, VOTE RON PAUL!
    WE STAND WITH ISRAEL!
    SHOUT OUT AGAINST TYRANNY!
