Oklahoma City Bombing Still Making Headlines

Speaking of conspiracy theories...This new information almost makes me wonder...

" Long-secret security tapes showing the chaos immediately after the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building are blank in the minutes before the blast and appear to have been edited, an attorney who obtained the recordings said Sunday.

...The tapes turned over by the FBI came from security cameras various companies had mounted outside office buildings near the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. They are blank at points before 9:02 a.m., when a truck bomb carrying a 4,000 pound fertilizer-and-fuel-oil bomb detonated in front of the building, Trentadue said.

"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," Trentadue said.

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."

"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." (source)

Do the conspiracy theorists hold their tongues because Clinton was President? I know there are alternative theories about what went down prior to that bombing, but no one has blamed "the government"or the President --they way they did Bush after 9/11...In fact, I think the Left relishes in the fact that McVeigh was a white guy and a veteran...
