I heard a story on the latest Trentadue hearing Updated

and was going to write about it, but there's a problem: I can't find the story. Update: here it is; oddly- since they reported it several times on the air- there's no link I can find at the KTOK site

KTOK radio had it earlier, but there's not story or link I can find on their webLinksite. And I can't find it elsewhere.

As I recall, Trentadue had sued the FBI to be given access to security camera videos that should show the scene before the bombing. If I'm remembering what I heard correctly, the FBI today told the judge that
"We can't find any such videos", followed by
"If there are any, they must be in storage with a lot of other evidence; and it'll take us a year and a half to look to see if there is such."

Assuming I can find the new story, I'll add it to this.

Ok, here's the part that causes my 'Bullshit' meter to peg out:
In a response filed yesterday to a federal judge’s order May 11, an FBI official offered no denials about the existence of video images captured by more than 20 surveillance cameras operating prior to 9:02 a.m. on April 19, 1995, in the vicinity of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Instead, he explained that officials at the bureau merely cannot find the tapes and raised the possibility that they “might have been misfiled and thus could be located somewhere other than in the OKBOMB file (though it would be impossible to know where).”
Really? You Absolutely Effing Expect us to believe that? What was, until 9/11, the worst terrorist attack in the US in our history and you supposedly CAN'T FIND THE VIDEOTAPE EVIDENCE? THEY MAY EXIST, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY ARE? We're actually supposed to believe that?

I am a firm believer in that adage "Do not blame treachery or treason where stupidity or incompetence explains it", but this is WAY outside the limits.
