    Files scheduled to be released from Clinton White House records will show his efforts to shackle militias and set up a "strict licensing system" for paramilitary groups, Politico reports. In other words, gun control was to be complemented--and in places, supplemented--by people control. According to Politico, the release is certain to raise the ire of citizens already concerned about "enhancing government surveillance powers and regulating armed groups of U.S. citizens." Upon release, the files are expected to show that Clinton's plans ran into trouble when his own attorneys "feared that some of the proposals could violate the Constitution." The files...

    In a response filed yesterday to a federal judge’s order May 11, an FBI official offered no denials about the existence of video images captured by more than 20 surveillance cameras operating prior to 9:02 a.m. on April 19, 1995, in the vicinity of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Instead, he explained that officials at the bureau merely cannot find the tapes and raised the possibility that they “might have been misfiled and thus could be located somewhere other than in the OKBOMB file (though it would be impossible to know where).” The order, issued...

    "No one wants the country to suffer another catastrophe," Time's Mark Halperin wrote after the 2010 midterms -- while saying disaster was just what President Obama needed. He was hardly alone in this theory: Something similar occurred to President Clinton's adviser Mark Penn. "President Clinton reconnected with Oklahoma," he said to Chris Matthews. "Obama needs a similar kind of ... yeah." To some on the left, when your typical paranoid loner, Jared Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, R-Ariz., outside a Safeway in Tucson, wounding 13 people and killing six, it seemed the "kind of ... yeah" moment had come. Now...

    On August 9 Hal Turner is scheduled to go on trial in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, for allegedly threatening three federal appeals court judges in an Internet blog post. For the past several years, Turner, an Internet radio shock jock, has been one of the top purveyors of incendiary racist bombast. He has been dubbed the “Host of Hate” by the Southern Poverty Law Center and has provided the SPLC and other left-wing activist groups with a handy image to use in smearing conservatives. The major problem for prosecutors is that Turner was on the payroll of the...

    Former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick said that President Barack Obama should speak in front of members of the militia movement to calm down rhetoric in the midst of a resurgent anti-government movement. Gorelick was speaking Friday as part of a panel discussion marking the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing on Monday. On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, killing 168 people. McVeigh, an anti-government extremist who was hoping to spark a revolt against the federal government, was convicted, sentenced to the death penalty and executed on June 11, 2001. “It...

    Wednesday's shooting at the Holocaust Museum in D.C.—the second attack by a domestic terrorist in two weeks—killed one and left others injured. As details on the suspect, a white supremacist leader, come to light, a controversial government memo on right-wing terror earlier this year deserves another look. To the nation's horror, a much-maligned Department of Homeland Security memo on right-wing extremism is looking more accurate by the day. With news of a horrific incident of domestic terrorism Wednesday at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., the second major attack by a far-right gunman in less than two weeks, the...

    Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says a high-ranking FBI official "apparently" was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building and might have changed the original target of the attack, according to a new affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Utah. The official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government "in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma," Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit. Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security...

    FBI chided for OKC bomb investigation By JOHN SOLOMON, Associated Press Writer Mon Dec 25, 4:36 AM ET WASHINGTON - A two-year congressional inquiry into the Oklahoma City bombing concludes that the FBI didn't fully investigate whether other suspects may have helped Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols with the deadly 1995 attack, allowing questions to linger a decade later. The House International Relations investigative subcommittee will release the findings of its two-year review as early as Wednesday, declaring there is no conclusive evidence of a foreign connection to the attack, but that far too many unanswered questions remain. The subcommittee's...

    OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma - Has terrorism returned to the Oklahoma City area? That is what folks in Norman have been asking, ever since a 21-year-old student at the University of Oklahoma killed himself in what some are calling an attempted homicide bombing. On Saturday, October 1, engineering major Joel Hinrichs detonated a homemade bomb near Memorial Stadium, where 84,000 fans were watching the hometown Sooners take on Kansas State. That was just a hundred yards from a newly replaced bench -- it was there, just before halftime, that a powerful explosion ripped through the entire area, taking Hinrichs with it....

    Did OKC bombers join TWA 800 plot? Posted: April 20, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com In light of what we know now we need to look back at a whole bunch of things that happened in the 1990s to see if there might be an al-Qaida connection and that would include the Oklahoma City bombing and the TWA 800 flight. There may be no connection to terrorism, but boy do we need to take a second look at it.– Herbert Meyer, Reagan-era special assistant to CIA director, on "Fox and Friends," April 15, 2004 In this generation, no single reporter has...

    McALESTER, Okla. — The presiding judge in the trial of bombing conspirator Terry Nichols ordered a former congressional aide to search items seized from his home for material connected to the deadly explosion. Judge Steven Taylor told John Culbertson during a pretrial hearing Wednesday to look through the nine computers, hundreds of disks and other items before they're returned to his home in Virginia. "I want it done as quickly as possible," Taylor said. Culbertson earlier presented a series of photographs that merely show a cloud of smoke, apparently unrelated to the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred...

    WASHINGTON - FBI (news - web sites) agents destroyed evidence and failed to share other information that raised the possibility that a gang of white supremacist bank robbers may have assisted Timothy McVeigh (news - web sites) during the Oklahoma City bombing, according to documents never introduced at McVeigh's trial. Both the FBI supervisor who ran the Oklahoma City investigation and the veteran agent who was in command at the bombing scene say the new evidence, detailed in documents obtained by The Associated Press, is serious enough to warrant reopening the inquiry nine years later. The evidence, never shared with...

The retired FBI chief of the Oklahoma City investigation, Dan Defenbaugh, said he was unaware of some evidence obtained by The Associated Press and that the investigation should be reopened to determine whether the robbery gang was linked to McVeigh.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Ten days before Timothy McVeigh was executed, lawyers for FBI lab employees sent an urgent letter to the attention of Attorney General John Ashcroft alleging that a key prosecution witness in the Oklahoma City bombing trial might have given false testimony about forensic evidence. The allegations involving Steven Burmeister, now the FBI lab's chief of scientific analysis, were never turned over to McVeigh or the trial court, though they surfaced as the judge was considering whether to delay his execution because the government withheld evidence. The letter, however, was recently turned over to bombing conspirator Terry Nichols...
