A federal judge has turned down a Utah attorney's request for access to secret CIA documents about the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing in a ruling that links the agency to the prosecution of Timothy McVeigh.
A decision handed down Friday by U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups in Salt Lake City rejected attorney Jesse Trentadue's Freedom of Information Act request for 12 CIA documents. The judge says they are legally exempt from disclosure.
But the decision says affidavits by the CIA summarizing the documents' contents indicate the agency was working with the Department of Justice to prepare for the prosecution of McVeigh and co-conspirator Terry Nichols.
Heard something about this on KTOK, but their website doesn't have anything on it.
