Often when I read these stories on the news, I can't help but feel like the FBI simply went out and recruited some jaded but otherwise harmless buffoons to take the fall in yet another headline-grabbing case in order to justify their own budgets, the ongoing war on terror, and generally as a propaganda tool to keep the American public on edge. To sell fear.
But aside from the ethical standpoint of wasting tax dollars to create crime where there is none, and sending otherwise innocent people to prison to make themselves look good, there is good reason for law-enforcement to stay well away from the line between undercover work and entrapment. That is, between investigating a criminal enterprise, and becoming the criminals themselves. Perhaps no better example could be made, than by this bombshell report from the American Free Press:
Attorney General Holder Tied to OKC Bombers
Eric Holder, current attorney general of the United States, managed an FBI operation that provided explosives to Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols just prior to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, according to official documents released during the ongoing investigation into government foreknowledge of the supposed terrorist attack.
According to the documentation provided in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought against the Department of Justice by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue, the Oklahoma City bombing had aspects of being an FBI sting operation that went out of control. Holder had authorized the FBI to provide explosives to Nichols and McVeigh, then lost track of both the explosives and their targets. McVeigh went on to detonate some of the explosives outside the federal building, an act that was designed to help anti-terrorism legislation pass Congress. But an additional case of explosives was unaccounted for.
After the bombing, when the FBI learned the location of the explosives, Holder reportedly sent emails to FBI agents ordering them to recover the explosives before they could be found by some other branch of the government. FBI agents failed to spot the additional, unexploded explosives during an initial search of Nichols’s home and offered to spare him the death penalty if he would help them recover them.
The case of explosives was, however, recovered by another law enforcement agency and was later determined to have the incriminating fingerprints of two FBI agents, as well as fingerprints of McVeigh and Nichols.
Shortly after the bombing, Kenneth Trentadue, a government informant, was murdered in his prison cell. His family has been pursuing legal action against the federal government ever since.
In 2001, in a bid to avoid a full release of documents, the Federal Bureau of Prisons paid a settlement of $1.1 million to several members of Trentadue’s family, but his brother refused to drop the investigation and filed a FOIA lawsuit for the missing documents. That suit has been ongoing in the Salt Lake City federal courthouse.
So it seems that at the very least, the FBI provided material support to domestic terrorists. And not just material support, that they provided the actual bomb which was detonated in the largest terror attack America has ever known outside of 9/11. It really doesn't make any difference what reasons they had, or that they might claim that they were simply outwitted by McVeigh and Nichols. At the very least, this is the perfect example of why the FBI (and other law-enforcement) should not be in the business engaging in plots with domestic terrorists. Why would the FBI even take such a risk? To let the plot unfold far enough in order to secure a lengthy prison sentence? To reel in the big fish so to speak? I don't know about you, but I would much rather have seen McVeigh and Nichols brought in on some minor charges that would have only stuck them in prison for a few years, but would have also disrupted their scheme entirely and forever marked them as persons of interest to law enforcement. So did Eric Holder let all those people die gambling for a promotion? It certainly seems that may be true, or even the best-case scenario, given this new information.
Others Unknown, Tim McVeigh's attorney goes into substantial detail about why he was convinced that there was a larger conspiracy surrounding the Oklahoma City Bombing, though he stops short of naming names or endorsing any one particular conspiracy theory. Nonetheless, he makes a compelling case that McVeigh actually played a small role in a much larger conspiracy, and was not the mastermind he has been made out to be.
There are many discrepancies in the case and the official account of what happened. Again though, the most chilling discoveries come when we are faced with evidence which shows that our own government is not only involved in the coverup of information (for "national security" reasons they would tell us) but that they actively participated in carrying out this plot to bomb the Murrah building. And that evidence goes well beyond this revelation that the FBI actually gave McVeigh and Nichols the explosives. The government's complicity appears to even go beyond that. Take this photo, for example:
That image is taken from several snapped by an aircraft pilot flying over an Army Camp just outside of Oklahoma City just days before the bombing. It begs the question, what would the Army be doing with a Ryder truck hidden behind a series of screens in a secure area? (See more pictures of the area here.) One might be able to chalk it up to a stunning coincidence, if it were not for the fact that there are other discrepancies regarding the story of the Ryder truck and McVeigh.

But be warned, the government does not like people snooping around in their dirty laundry. People who have investigated the OKC bombing have been labeled terrorists at government Fusion Centers.
