Judge Orders Trial in Allegedly Missing Oklahoma City Bombing Video Case

The Deseret News reports:
A Salt Lake attorney who contends the FBI is hiding surveillance video associated with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing might see his case go trial.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups denied the government's motion to dismiss the case Monday and ordered both sides to prepare for a bench trial. He scheduled a status hearing for Nov. 21, at which a trial date will be set.

"This is a significant ruling," said Jesse Trentadue, who has spent years trying to get the tapes. "There's no doubt that evidence exists. The question then becomes why can't you find it. The obvious answer is you don't want to find it."

At issue is whether the FBI adequately responded to Trentadue's Freedom of Information Act request for footage of Timothy McVeigh parking a truckload of explosives at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.

Specifically, he is after surveillance tape of the federal building and neighboring buildings as well as dashcam video from the Oklahoma state trooper who stopped McVeigh 90 minutes after the explosion that killed 168 people.


  1. This is such a huge potential story! I wish it would get bigger play on the internet. Because if you follow what Jesse Trentadue uncovers, then nothing will seem surprising that the government does.

    Wenzel, can you get him on for a podcast?

    1. I second that motion.

      Here is an interview of Trentadue on the Lew Rockwell Show some time ago:


      By the way, Wenzel, your podcast interview about the USS Liberty attack and cover-up was another one of those wake-up moments. Thanks and keep it up!

    2. I triple it! The Rockwell interview is great, but here is the definitive Jesse Trentadue presentation:


      Watch it, and spread it far and wide.

    3. Sorry I am on iPhone now. Is that his talking stick tv video? If so, I agree it is the best and needs to go viral

    4. Can you repost this video Wenzel? It is amazing!
