Exclusive New Court Docs: Oklahoma City Truth is Back! Trentadue's court process unfolds in epic FOIA fight for missing Murrah & motel videotapes

Here is something kind of nifty - just got the latest court filings from an investigation into Oklahoma City bombing now approved by a judge to move forward in federal court against the CIA and FBI. The crux of it is missing videotapes, a recurring problem in major terror incidents -- anyone remember those commercial surveillance videos that never got released from near the Pentagon 9/11 crash site? [VT 'Truth' & Skeptics views]

Unbeknownst to most, Jesse Trentadue, a diligent attorney from Salt Lake City, has been trying to wrench loose every last bureaucratic particle related to the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing attributed to "lone wolf Patriot" Timothy McVeigh and his accomplice Terry Nichols.

Trentadue's brother died horribly while in custody of the US Bureau of Prisons, which he suspects was a case of mistaken identity linked to shadowy figures involved in OKC. Thus, in honor of his brother's memory, get all the files On the Table.

The bombing presaged a new era of domestic police legislation, more cops on US streets thanks to the federal government, the thorough discrediting of the general "Patriot" scene and so on. Current Attorney General Eric Holder had a "Trentadue Mission" as well in all of this.

Press coverage: Sept 9 2013: Judge orders trial in allegedly missing Oklahoma City bombing video case | Deseret News:

SALT LAKE CITY — 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.

The FBI has released 30 videotapes and 200 documents in response to Trentadue's FOIA request.

Trentadue began looking into the bombing after his brother died in a federal detention center in Oklahoma. He believes federal agents mistook Kenneth Trentadue, a convicted bank robber, for a bombing suspect and beat him to death during an August 1995 interrogation. His official cause of death was listed as suicide.

Trenatdue claims the video will reveal a second bombing suspect who resembles but is not his brother.

Waddoups has chastised U.S. Department of Justice several times for not producing the tapes since Trentadue sued in 2008.

See also notes from Kaye: jesse trentadue | AxXiom for Liberty. Oct 2012: Jesse Trentadue exposes who the FBI uses for informants. A lot of this gets to the FBI's shady secret file pockets such as the mysterious "S Drive": S is for Secret: Jesse Trentadue Discovers the FBI’s S Drive (June 2011). 2009 from IntelWire.com: Trentadue CIA Vaughan Index Sept 2009.

A Few Unresolved Backstories: Another dimension generally unknown is the large number of informants working for different agencies in the milieu McVeigh circulated in. This certainly included German BND intelligence agent Andreas Strassmeir ("Andy the German"), ATF informant & neo-Nazi Carol Howe, Rev. Millar at the "Elohim City" Christian millenialist compound (nicknamed Alphabet City for its many three-letter agency plants), and a weapons dealer named Roger Moore who Nichols alleged supplied the Kinestiks used in the truck bomb. Department of Homeland Security was involved in the Moore/Nichols/kinestiks thing. Just found this too.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an Alabama-based investigative/intelligence nonprofit organization with a huge endowment that dabbles in various legal cases involving racists and intolerant people, also was cited in numerous bits of the paper trail as having at least one informant of some kind they were using to provide information to the FBI.

While the SPLC has cultivated a positive reputation with liberals because of highly visible campaigns against racists, their still-partially concealed role is quite relevant to the complete truth around OKC. What did SPLC know and when did they know it? [And will they ever go after banks for making southerners poor??! Or would that harm their awesome endowment assets??]

//////

So basically around OKC, you have a level of informant saturation well above zero in this situation, and of course it's marketed as the "lone wolf" incident par excellence. What would undermine this narrative?

Well, as various official internal documents indicate rather directly, video footage from security cameras near the Murrah building showing multiple people in the Ryder truck would be pretty awkward, years later. There were certainly cameras around the building, and Trentadue has had these FOIA requests in for quite some time.

Anyway let's have ourselves some fresh court documents:

CIA Revolving Door Resistance: Petraeus called out at CUNY & touring at Duke; Day job operating for fossil fuel Wall Street heavies at KKR

One axiom of the Interwebs research world is that the CIA is Wall Street and Wall Street is the CIA. This reflects many key dynamics, a personal favorite example is laundering of drug money through Wall Street for the benefit of CIA proxies in the "war on drugs".

Anyway a big Wall Street leveraged buyout company, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts has obtained Petraeus' services and he is also inserting himself into New York academia on the side.

Press Release: KKR & Co. L.P. - KKR Appoints General David Petraeus Chairman of KKR Global Institute

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. today announced the appointment of retired four-star General and former Director of the CIA David Petraeus as Chairman of the newly created KKR Global Institute.

Henry Kravis, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of KKR, stated: "I have long known and respected General Petraeus and, on behalf of everyone at KKR, I welcome him to the firm. As the world changes and we expand how and where we invest, we are always looking to sharpen the ‘KKR edge.' With the addition of General Petraeus, we are building on the work we have done to understand the investment implications of public policy, macro-economic, regulatory and technology trends globally. We are pleased to bring all of this expertise together under one umbrella, the KKR Global Institute, to deliver the best of KKR's insights for our investors."

Over the past several years, macro-economic and geopolitical considerations, including the heightened role of central banks following the financial crisis, new regulation and major changes in public policy, have led to KKR's increased engagement on these areas and on environmental, social and governance issues. At the same time, KKR is a global firm investing in new and emerging markets that have new risks and opportunities. The KKR Global Institute will be the nexus of KKR's focus on the investment implications of these issues. It will also further build on the firm's efforts to help KKR's portfolio companies expand globally, and it will periodically serve as an outlet for publishing the firm's thought leadership products, including views from portfolio managers and industry experts.

As Chairman of the KKR Global Institute, General Petraeus will work with a team at KKR and in tandem with Ken Mehlman, Global Head of Public Affairs, and Henry McVey, Global Head of Macro & Asset Allocation. In addition to his role as Chairman of the KKR Global Institute, General Petraeus will also support KKR's investment teams in the diligence process, especially when the Firm is considering investments in new geographies.

"KKR is one of the best investment firms in the world," General Petraeus observed. "I am very pleased to join such a great team. I have watched KKR evolve as it adapted to the post-financial crisis world and became a go-to partner for companies worldwide. I look forward to supporting the investment teams in their pursuit of the best opportunities for clients and also being a part of a new initiative to provide additional insights to KKR's clients and companies."

[Yes it is the former Republican Party Chairman Ken Mehlman, CFR member & notable component of log cabin style GOP.]

However, political scandal month has just started. Another former high-ranking government official is already preparing his lesson plans for his college course at the City University of New York. Former CIA director David Petraeus, brought down by an affair with Army reserve officer Paula Broadwell, will be teaching courses that favor the building of the Keystone XL pipeline and the benefits of gas fracking and "clean coal."

Petraeus's Wall Street employer, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts (KKR) has significant financial stakes in all three energy projects. So, when Petraeus ignited a firestorm of protest at CUNY by accepting a $150,000 salary for teaching a single three-hour course a week, he changed his mind and said he would teach the course for a mere $1. Obviously, KKR's deep-pocketed pals at TransCanada are picking up the difference.

POLITICO: Petraeus calls on Congress to back White House Sept 7 2013:

On Wednesday, Petraeus will give his first paid speech since resigning as CIA director in November. It’ll be at Duke University and is titled, “America and the World: A Conversation with Gen. David Petraeus.” Petraeus is working with six veterans’ support groups, and is chairman of the newly created KKR Global Institute for Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. He also is teaching this fall at the University of Southern Californiam, and beginning Monday at the City University of New York.

Ugh anyway that is a nibble on Petraeus for now.

It's a pretty woolly political scene right now & wanted to slam up some docs leading different directions on this. At least the damn narrative is moving along.

More or less we're
