Well, THIS is really going to help settle things

[/sarcasm]
A Utah attorney claims the FBI edited some security camera videotapes from the morning of the Oklahoma City bombing before releasing the recordings to him.

"Four cameras in four different locations going blank at basically the same time on the morning of April 19, 1995. There ain’t no such thing as a coincidence,” Jesse Trentadue told The Associated Press Sunday.

"The interesting thing is they spring back on after 9:02,” he said. "The absence of footage from these crucial time intervals is evidence that there is something there that the FBI doesn’t want anybody to see.”


From the AP story,
He said government officials claim the security cameras did not record the minutes before the bombing because "they had run out of tape" or "the tape was being replaced."

One camera having tech problems or tape being changed at just that time, sure. Two of them? Hmmmm... Three or four? All at once? All at that time? Sorry guys, have a bit of a problem with that.

That's how it always works, isn't it? These people think we are as stupid as they are.

Strange.

At Waco, it is claimed that the cameras spat their tapes out and failed to record.

Is there some secret Harry Potter style device out there, in the hands of "public enemies" which does things like that to cameras at vital moments?

It would make an interesting conspiracy theory, despite a much simpler explanation...

Thought you might be interested in my follow-up to the recent AP piece about Jesse Trentadue’s FOIA-obtained surveillance tapes from the area around the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. On Monday, I wrote and published a copyrighted story about those recently-released tapes, based upon materials provided by — and conversations I had with — Jayna Davis, author of “The Third Terrorist.” Important note: I sought her out and became the first journalist/blogger with whom Davis has spoken about the case in four years. link
