  • Oklahoma City bombing: 20 years later, key questions remain unanswered

    The Guardian ^ | 04/13/2015 | Andrew Gumbel
    Twenty years ago, on 19 April 1995, a disaffected veteran named Timothy McVeigh drove a Ryder truck stuffed with explosives into downtown Oklahoma City and destroyed a federal office building, killing 168 people, including 19 children, and maiming hundreds of others. That much we know. We also know that, within 90 minutes of the bombing, McVeigh was pulled over near the Kansas border and arrested, alone, at the wheel of a glaringly improbable getaway car, an ancient, spluttering rust bucket of a Mercury sedan with no licence plates, which made him a sitting duck for any passing highway patrolman. How...
  • Did the Oklahoma City bomber have another accomplice?

    07/27/2014 10:55:16 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 54 replies
    One man's quest to explain his brother's mysterious jail cell death 19 years ago has rekindled long-dormant questions about whether others were involved in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. What some consider a far-flung conspiracy theory will be at the forefront during a trial set to begin Monday in Salt Lake City. The Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue against the FBI. He says the agency won't release security camera videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and...

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/28/2011 | Doug Book
    To this day the Federal Bureau of Investigation claims to have discovered not a single Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator in league with Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Yet McVeigh and Nichols did not act alone in the 1995 scheme which killed 168 individuals and injured hundreds more. They had help, some of it coming from the FBI itself! And evidence to that effect is overwhelming. In 2004, Terry Lynn Nichols wrote to Attorney General John Ashcroft from his prison cell in Florence, Colorado offering to provide a complete account of his knowledge of and participation in the Oklahoma City bombing...

    DENVER (AP) -- A federal judge isn't changing her ruling dismissing a lawsuit Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols filed over his prison diet. Nichols is serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Colorado for his role in the 1995 bombing of the federal building that killed 168 people. He had alleged religious discrimination because the prison won't give him high-fiber whole foods that he says he needs as a Christian.

    The FBI is appealing an order that allows a Utah attorney to conduct taped depositions of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and a death-row inmate. Salt Lake City lawyer Jesse Trentadue believes that the two inmates have valuable information about his brother's death in a federal prison - and about the FBI's alleged withholding of many of the relevant documents requested in his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suit. Authorities say the August 1995 death of Kenneth Trentadue in a cell at an Oklahoma City federal prison was a suicide, but the inmate's family believes he was mistaken for...

    SALT LAKE CITY - A judge ordered the government to make Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols available for a videotaped interview by a Utah lawyer who is trying to learn more about the federal investigation behind the 1995 bombing. Jesse Trentadue also can take a deposition from convicted killer David Paul Hammer, a death-row acquaintance of bomber Timothy McVeigh for two years before McVeigh was executed in 2001. U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball's decision was the second time he ordered the government to cooperate with interviews of Nichols at a maximum-security prison in Florence, Colo., and of Hammer,...

    A judge has reaffirmed an order that a Utah attorney can conduct taped depositions of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols and a federal death-row inmate. Attorney Jesse Trentadue says the two prisoners have information about the 1995 death of his brother, whom he believes was murdered in a federal prison after guards mistook him for an accomplice in the bombing. Kenneth Trentadue was found hanged in his cell in August 1995 at a federal prison in Oklahoma City, where he was being held on an alleged parole violation. Although the death was ruled a suicide, Trentadue family members think...

Jasper Created 2007-03-07 18:33 In a 19-page affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City, convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Lynn Nichols alleges that the bombing plot was actually under the supervision of top FBI officials.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI failed to fully investigate information suggesting other suspects may have helped Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, allowing questions to linger more than a decade after the deadly attack, a congressional inquiry concludes. 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 report will conclude there is no doubt McVeigh and Nichols were the main perpetrators, and it discloses...

    Legal ethics rules in all fifty states absolutely prevent lawyers from assisting their clients in the commission of criminal acts. Confidentiality and lawyer-client privilege rules have, everywhere that we know of, "crime-fraud" exceptions -- communications sent by the client to the lawyer to facilitate the commission of future crimes are NOT confidential. Treason, in every state in the land, is severely punishable, even by death. Break all these rules, and what do you get? About thirty years seems right. What you don't get is the paltry 28-month sentence for traitor-lawyer Lynne Stewart, who admits passing messages from a convicted terrorist...

    A California congressman said Thursday a House subcommittee will investigate whether there was a foreign connection to the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., chairman of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee of the International Relations Committee, said his committee's investigation will focus on whether those responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing had help from a foreign source. "We need to answer some very serious questions in order to have confidence that the truth of this monstrous crime is fully known," Rohrabacher, who has conducted an extensive personal inquiry into the bombing, said in a...

    Terry Nichols has sent a letter from prison asking for leniency -- not for himself, but for his son. The Oklahoma City bombing conspirator's 23-year-old son has been sentenced to four years in prison for assaulting two police officers and driving a stolen car. Josh Nichols was convicted in March. Two Las Vegas police officers had seen him getting into a stolen car in October. One of the officers was dragged by the vehicle and another was partially inside. Nichols apologized yesterday in court. His lawyer says the younger Nichols has signed a deal to write a book about his...

    After a meeting with convicted Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols, a U.S. congressman reaffirmed evidence of a Middle East connection to the 1995 attack. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif. – who has publicly vowed to address unanswered questions about the bombing – went with a staff aid to the super-maximum security prison in Florence, Colo., where Nichols is serving 161 consecutive life sentences, according to the Northeast Intelligence Network, a private, counter-terrorist research and investigation group. In his quizzing of Nichols, the congressman relied heavily on the investigative work of journalist Jayna Davis and her book, "The Third Terrorist: The Middle...

    After a decade of silence, Terry L. Nichols, who was convicted in the Oklahoma City bombings, has accused a third man of being an accomplice who provided some of the explosives used to kill 168 people at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building 10 years ago. Nichols, in a letter written from his cell at the Supermax prison in Colorado, said Arkansas gun collector Roger Moore donated so-called binary explosives, made up of two components, to bomber Timothy J. McVeigh that were used in Oklahoma City, as well as additional bomb components that recently were found in Nichols' former home...

    Bombshell new evidence ignored by the FBI suggests a link between the Oklahoma City bombing and the man who masterminded the first World Trade Center bombing and who later drew up the blueprint for the 9/11 attacks, Fox News Channel's Rita Cosby is set to report Sunday night. "It's amazing to me that not more has been made of those phone records,” Oklahoma City attorney Michael Johnston tells Cosby, for her tenth anniversary special on the 1995 attack. The explosive new evidence shows that OKC bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols repeatedly called a boarding house in [the Philippines'] Cebu City, an...

    It is rare when average citizens have the ability to decide how the United States government conducts the War on Terror. However, an anonymous federal jury in New York has just been tapped with such an opportunity. On Wednesday, January, 12, the jury for radical defense attorney Lynne Stewart began deliberating her fate. Stewart stands accused of willfully and knowingly conspiring to conceal the terrorist activities of her client, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the infamous Egyptian “blind cleric” and leader of the Al-Gama’a Islamiyya terrorist group. Stewart’s own attorney, criminal defense lawyer Michael Tigar, famous for his defense of Oklahoma...
