A U.S. Secret Service log obtained by an Oklahoma news agency suggests that satellite photo-reconnaissance was used to investigate a compound near Muldrow, Oklahoma following the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The use of satellite reconnaissance is often associated with the gathering of intelligence on foreign governments.
OKLAHOMA CITY - In the days after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the U.S. government used a spy satellite to gather intelligence on a white separatist compound in Oklahoma, according to a published report. The McCurtain Daily Gazette reported Wednesday that it had obtained a Secret Service log indicating that on May 2, 1995 _ two weeks after the April 19 bombing _ the FBI was trying to locate suspects for questioning. They were thought to be in Elohim City, a compound near the town of Muldrow.

"Satellite assets have been tasked to provide intelligence concerning the compound," the document says.

Shown a copy, Secret Service spokesman Jonathan Cherry told The Associated Press he could not confirm it was a Secret Service document and declined further comment.

The refusal by the Secret Service to provide further comment is interesting and telling.

The OKC bombing case was closed, wasn't it?

So, is the U.S. government using spy satellites on its own citizens or not?
