CIA can withhold Oklahoma City documents
UPI ^ | 31 Mar 2010 | UPI

Posted on 04/03/2010 7:56:01 AM PDT by Palter

A federal judge in Utah ruled in favor of the CIA in the agency's refusal to release documents regarding the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups Tuesday refused to order the agency to hand over the documents to Salt Lake City lawyer Jesse Trentadue, who filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the CIA in 2008.

The Salt Lake Tribune said Wednesday the ruling revealed for the first time that the CIA took part in the investigation of the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, which killed 168 people.

Trentadue filed the FOIA request for documents he believes could shed light on the death of his brother at a federal prison a few months after the bombing. Trentadue's brother, a bank robber being held on a parole violation, was found hanged in his cell. Trentadue believes his brother may have been killed by guards who thought he knew something about the case.

The Tribune said the 12 contested documents also contain information about foreign nationals whose names came up in the case.

I think there is a vast difference between 9-11 truthers and
those see TWA 800 & the murrah building as government operations.

AND... this is what brings people to considering the 9/11 Truther theories, involving our government and President Bush in the 9/11 attack on the United States, as viable... the subject which is “verboten” here... :-)

I sat there dumbstruck and watched, live, as the second plane full of jet fuel slam into the tower.....there was NO CONSPIRICY except for the fact that our wonderful govt.agencies were unable to work with each other and let these towel heads have free range to do this.

Which kind of Truther are you? The kind that says it never happened? Tell that to my friends who were in the Pentagon when the plane hit it. If that’s your thing, at least I now know to avoid your posts.

Indeed. I find it Truthers’ comments highly insulting, both to my intelligence, and to those injured or killed that day.

You were saying ...

I sat there dumbstruck and watched, live, as the second plane full of jet fuel slam into the tower.....

Yes, indeed... the first plane and you're just scratching your head wondering how in the hell something like this could happen accidently... it's just too puzzling at that particular moment of the first plane ...


there was NO CONSPIRICY except for the fact that our wonderful govt.agencies were unable to work with each other and let these towel heads have free range to do this.

No, I don't think there was a conspiracy either.

The very second that the second plane hit -- "there was clarity" which came out of that previous confusion. It was instantaneous, and one knew that it was a terrorist attack and (as for me), I knew within seconds, that it was Osama bin Ladin.

Of course, I had been following him and those like him since back before 1999, along with what Steven Emerson had been saying about the Islamic terrorists. I had already seen the "Declaration of War" against the United States, by Osama bin Ladin at that time (having seen it several years earlier).

So, with that second plane came "clarity" ...

When I pointed out the 9/11 Truthers... it was to show what this type of "mentality" produces, in looking at these various things. It doesn't matter if you're Democrat or Republican, with this type of thinking -- if you're Democrat, it was a Repbulican Administration that "did it" -- and if you're Republican, it was a Democrat Administration that "did it" -- with this type of thinking. The only thing that changes is which administration you're talking about ... LOL ..

I think you have it exactly right.

As for the ME connection—there used to be recordings of the BOLOs available on the internet—haven’t looked for them lately, but certainly they were looking for at least one Middle-Eastern man in a brown pickup truck. Despite official claims to the contrary. Local news was playing them live, as they happened.

Sorry if you mistake me for a 9/11 Truther ... LOL ...

I think it was Osama bin Ladin, like I said in Post #45

Yes, the 9/11 Truthers are just as crazy (for them saying that President Bush and his Administration was involved) as those who say that President Clinton was involved in the bombing of Oklahoma City, and that say that President Obama is involved in some conspiracy of the government to do something like that, and with those who say that it was the government (or they knew what was going on at the time) that shot down TWA Flight 800 ... LOL ...

They're all just as crazy as the next one.

And it seems to infect Republicans and Democrats the same way. If you're Demorat, you say "the Republicans did it" and if you're Republican, you say, "the Democrats did it" ... LOL ...

I think the main difference that clearly explains the "differentiation" of the two -- is that one group is comprised of Democrats and the other groups is comprised of Republicans.

If you understand that, you've got the best understanding of the two "groups" ... LOL ...

IIRC Clinton had the CIA turn the satellites to observe some of the so called “Right Wing Extremists” prior to the attack.

You mean you're not dumb enough to believe the Clinton's and the dems were just lucky in orchestrating all of those news stories prior to the bombing, about the right wing extremist wanting to overthrow the govt.?

Neither am I.

Yep, Clinton adm..killed him real quick...I don’t think I have ever heard of the death penalty being enforced that fast...maybe all death sentences should be that quick...and not drag on for decades..I always wonders about the middle eastern man some citizens saw him with. that got hushed up real quick also...

I find this infuriating. Is there no recourse to this ruling?

Good flippin’ grief.

You know, you’re embarrassing yourself with all that 9/11 truther bullcrap.

While there may be some truth behind the TWA and Oklahoma theories, it’s clear to any normal person that the reason those towers went down is because a bunch of fanatical muslim terrorists flew planes into them.

I really believe all that 9/11 truther crap is a form of mental illness. I really do.

The Islamic Extremists (Can I say that?), have long wanted to crash airplanes into buildings.

Project Bojinka and the CIA HQ too.

Context of 'June 3, 1995: Plot to Crash Plane in CIA Headquarters First Mentioned in Media'

Before that even, there was Air France Flight 8969 that had nothing to do with the USA .
