    Why was EVERY BADGE-CARRYING FEDERAL AGENT absent from work at nine o’clock on a weekday morning, their offices staffed only with civilian clerical workers?

    If you are educated in the right things you would know that yes it would.

    The photo caption is not accurate. He did not die in their custody because he died in a cell. If that is the case then the Fibbies didn't have him in custody because they don't have responsibility for those in cells. Ergo he did not die in thier custody. Unless they were in his cell with him and let me tell you the Marshalls don't let you into their cells with people in their custody. So was it the Marshalls? Nah.

    Actually it doesn't mean they were collecting intel. It could be that they used methods and sources to ATTEMPT to get info related to the situation, and could have been info outside the country but still related to the case. Now if that is the case the CIA would have documents and would have involvement, but doesn't mean it is working out of its mandate or did anything wrong or evil. And that type of info would need to stay classified.

    General Partin, an explosives expert did an in depth study of the explosive power to create the damage seen in the aftermath of the explosion and found that it was impossible for an AMFO bomb inside a truck parked on the street could have caused the damage. Do a little research "Anonymous" yourself before you make conclusions about the event. The CIA runs this country according to Rep. Ron Paul and this is one more bit of evidence of this fact.

    Hang in there, Trentadue. Any educated person knows that one truck load of fertilizer could not blow that pattern in the Murrah building. Of course the CIA was involved."

    Go study explosives chemistry and you'll learn otherwise.

    What National Security?
    Timothy acted alone, admitted it, the experts said he did it, the Government killed him, end of story. What secrets about the OK bombing could possibly cause security problems for the Nation? Possibly to see how easy it would be to convince the public that their version of the story is the only possible one? This still stinks

    Additional background:

    Trentadue's brother, a convicted bank robber, was picked up for parole violation in California. He was then sent to a facility in Oklahoma. Then his family learned he had been found bloodied, bruised, and hanging in his cell.

    Officials called the death a suicide. Their story was that he had thrown himself against the sink in his cell (multiple, vicious times) and then hung himself.

    Trentadue was suspicious and began his own investigation. At some point, he got an anonymous tip that his brother's death was related to the Oklahoma City bombing investigation. Pursuing that tip, he discovered his brother bore a strong resemblance to investigators’ descriptions of the missing "John Doe" accomplice of Timothy McVeigh, who investigators also believed was connected to a bank robbery ring.

    Evidence Trentadue has uncovered suggests federal agents believed his brother was the missing accomplice of Timothy McVeigh, and that for that reason he was brutally, fatally, interrogated.

    Trentadue set out to prove the circumstances of his brother's death and ended up discovering an apparent cover-up regarding the government's operations related to the Oklahoma City bombing.

    This article covers his latest efforts to obtain relevant government documents.

    inmates hang themselves for many reasons. They get beat for many reasons (by other inmates). I would like to see where and how the DOJ was guilty of misconduct.

    I have heard Republicans defending the use of torture in the last several years so it must be OK if they were trying to keep the country safe.

    What? The CIA under Clinton's watch? I knew it.

    Clinton wanted to drum up support by way of "domestic terrorism." This all makes sense now. To this day, Liberals point to this one incident as proof of domestic terrorists. But it was by their own hand. Oh, the conspiracy does run deep. Thank you for helping uncover this Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.

    Had Mr. Trentadue been involved in committing terrorist crimes against the USA? Was there enough reason to detain and question him? Was there reason to believe he was connected to terrorists who lived outside the United States?

    It sounds to me like the conspiracy is occurring in the strange underworld of seditious groups who are bent on destroying the US Government, the Constitution, and our way of life.

    If you've been following the Trentadue case, you know that the courts have already found government misconduct in Kenneth Trentadue's death in prison, the reporting of the facts surrounding his death and in the DOJ's handling of the lawsuit itself. I don't usually have any use for conspiracy theories, but Jesse Trentadue (the lawyer) is a smart straight-ahead sort of guy, and his skepticism about the government's conduct in this particular case has proved well-founded.

    Ruling doesn't show anything except they don't want the information to be shared with the public. Thank goodness we have a few secrets. People should be proud we can convict persons who kill our citizens. Good job government. The gov. conspiricy stuff is paranoid people. Grow up people.

    don't know enough about the case to know whether or not this was the right decision, but since Waddoups made it, I have serious doubts. He's the one who doesn't think people should do jail time when they steal millions from the Davis School District.

    The CIA can be sued to fight what it deems as maybe foreign agents against the US and in the WTC has been attempted to be blown up prior to OK> If Trentdue is that daft to not get this then he has not biz being a lawyer

  • Government cover-ups!!!

    Read the "Awakening to Our Awful Situation" books by Jack Monnett. They will blow you away as to the cover-ups that our government is involved in. That is exactly what has happened in this case but the "national security" defense will keep the truth from ever coming out.
