    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) --- A team of FBI agents that re-examined the Oklahoma City bombing after a resurgence in conspiracy theories uncovered no new reliable leads, the man who initially supervised the bureau's investigation told a newspaper. In his new memoir, "On-Scene Commander," former FBI deputy director Weldon Kennedy criticizes those who believe federal authorities did not find all the people involved in the terrorist attack's planning. He spoke to The Oklahoman newspaper for a story in Saturday's editions. "There's no possible way there were other conspirators," Kennedy wrote. "I can say with total confidence that we identified all three...

    A retired FBI deputy director reveals in a new book that a team of agents re-examined the Oklahoma City bombing case because of a resurgence in conspiracy theories in 2004 but found no new leads to check out. "Their finding?” Weldon Kennedy wrote. "All participants and conspirators in the OKBOMB case were identified in the original investigation. There was no credible information uncovered indicating otherwise nor was there any avenue of investigation neglected.” Kennedy, 69, oversaw the FBI's investigation of the bombing in the first couple of months after the attack on April 19, 1995. He spoke for the FBI...

    The mainstream media have gone AWOL again—this time by missing the complete story on the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. There are leads suggesting the bombing that killed 168 innocent American men, women, and children had been ordered by Saddam Hussein—then in power in Iraq, and possibly with the help of other Middle East terrorists. Politically, the cover-up is bipartisan—spanning two administrations—Clinton and Bush 43. Political interests, with the spectator-like acquiescence of the major media, did not want it known there is evidence that Timothy McVeigh (executed in June of 2001) and Terry Nichols (now rotting in prison) had help from...

    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...

    At 9:02 a.m., on April 19, 1995, a massive explosion detonated outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, collapsing the 9-story building and killing 168, 19 of them children, and wounding more than 700. Convicted by the federal government and executed in June 2001, Gulf War veteran Timothy McVeigh claimed he acted alone. Yet, multiple eyewitnesses identified McVeigh at ground zero with unknown accomplices before and after the blast. The original indictment charged McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and "others unknown" with conspiracy and murder. Was the bombing part of a greater pattern of Middle East-sponsored terrorist attacks, including...

Our missiles are the Russian missiles that we bought. The Russian invoices are clear, sometimes there are discrepancies, but they are checked and they were checked and...

    Font Size: Vidal Baboon By Scott Galupo  Published   03/18/2002   TCS  ALEXANDRIA, VA - Gore Vidal is a weird hybrid, an intellectual schizophrenic with equal affection for radical leftists like Noam Chomsky and America Firsters like Charles Lindbergh. In a 1992 lecture at Harvard University, Vidal described the radical half of his brain this way: "I am a radical reformer. The word 'radical' derives from the Latin word for root. Therefore, if you want to get to the root of anything you must be radical. It is no accident that the word has now been totally demonized by our masters,...

    Kenneth Trentadue was no angel. In the 1980s, he did time for robbing banks. But in a strange twist, the circumstances behind his violent death 10 years ago in prison are playing out in federal court in a case that hints at a wider conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing.Recently released documents unearthed because of a lawsuit against the FBI suggest that the long-standing allegations may not be so far-fetched. The lawsuit, brought by Trentadue’s brother, Jesse, has convinced a federal judge in Salt Lake City to order the FBI to produce hundreds of sealed documents in recent months, and...
