Timothy McVeigh. We’ve been told so much about him, the Oklahoma City bombing, and what it meant for America. But what if it’s all a lie? Join us today for this special Corbett Report podcastumentary as we examine the multiple trucks, multiple bombs, government informants, faked executions and other pieces of information suggesting that McVeigh was not a “lone wolf bomber” at all but a sheepdipped special forces operative working for the government, exactly as he claimed.
Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue believes a video exists showing McVeigh was not alone in detonating the bomb. The government says McVeigh was the only one who detonated the bomb, which killed 168 people. Trentadue filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI in 2008, saying the FBI has not adequately searched its archives for the security-camera video. Trentadue said he believes the presence of a second suspect explains why his brother, who resembled a police sketch of a suspect, was flown to Oklahoma months after the bombing.
His brother died in a federal holding cell. If he wins, Trentadue hopes to be able to search for the tapes himself rather than having to accept the FBI's answer that they don't exist. The trial is expected to conclude Thursday. There is no jury, and U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups is expected to rule at a later date. The testimony from Williams and Brannan came a day after a former police officer who was at the bombing scene said he saw FBI agents climbing ladders and taking cameras off the federal building shortly after the attack that killed 168 people.
A woman who lost her two grandsons in the bombing also said Wednesday there were surveillance cameras in an apartment building she lived in that should have recorded the bomb going off. She said she observed a police officer and FBI agent in the building six months later talking about collecting the tapes.

Wasn't that all about the time of a gun control bill?????
And it would make a good practice run if someone wanted to make a big splash at a later date.
Edit. Thanks to android phone, I screwed that post up.edit on 8-2-2017 by VenatiusFortunatus because: (no reason given)
Mr. Whitney told the court that Mr. Menepta, who was born Melvin Lattimore in St. Louis, and changed his name in 1989 after converting to Islam, came to the attention of the authorities the day after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. He testified that an informer told federal agents that Mr. Menepta had belonged to an Islamic group in Norman and St. Louis, whose leaders advocated terrorist acts and killing law enforcement agents. Mr. Whitney also told the court that Mr. Menepta had said the Secret Service told him that one of the terrorists who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993 had used his visa number. Mr. Whitney said he could not confirm Mr. Menepta's account. After the Sept. 11 attacks, Mr. Menepta, who lives in Norman, gave several interviews in which he defended Mr. Moussaoui, 33, whom he knew through a mosque. Mr. Moussaoui, a French citizen of Moroccan descent was arrested in Minneapolis on Aug. 17 on immigration charges after he sought lessons on how to fly jets, but expressed no interest in learning how to take off or land.

Here is one thing that I noticed immediately. The sketch of the 2nd bomber has an uncanny resemblance to the heavyweight boxer, Tommy Morrison. Tommy Morrison is from Oklahoma. He died of AIDS.
If anyone can post a side by side of the composite and a photo of Tommy. You may see what I see.

Sorry for the dumb question, but...why?
What 'false flag' motivation would there be to blow up the federal building and have McVeigh (of all possible bad guys) be framed for it?
It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. They could have gotten just as much traction on pursuing militias by blowing up a mini-mart in Fargo, why their own building? Maybe they just wanted a new building and something to do (?????).
Just doesn't compute.
She said: 'The plaintiff has refused to accept that the 30 tapes he got are the only tapes'.
His belief that the tapes exists stems from a Secret Service document written shortly after the bombing that describes security video footage of the attack that shows suspects - in plural - exiting the truck three minutes before it went off.
A Secret Service agent testified in 2004 that the log does exist, but its information was pulled from reports that were never verified, said Stacy A. Bauerschmidt, who was then the assistant to the special agent in charge of the FBI's intelligence division.
The 30 video recordings the FBI has released don't show the explosion or McVeigh's arrival in a rental truck.
