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:

Whistleblower ex-US Mil Intel agent Frank Ford flags VX WMD distribution in Iraq & Syria, smoking gun @ Carlyle Group chemical weapons network as new Obama target

VIA http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/articles/20130830_3? "Evidence of American War Crimes Likely Target in Syria". Somewhat speculative but a pretty likely scenario. I've been wondering when the Iraqi era chemical weapons angle will pop up. This whole damn thing is such a bad trip and I think most of America pretty much realizes that. See the other category tags on this post archives circa 2002-2010 eh? .... firing off quick posts here on the big impending quagmire.

See also: More note on impending Syria Fail! Dempsey vs R2P interventionist hawks; Al-Nusra rebels caught with 2kg Sarin in May 2013, possible links to Libya Chemical Weapons stash, the Britam leaks & McCain Playing Portable Poker

YELLOWCAKE WAS A RED HERRING. The real deal was the Carlyle type US-made stuff distributed by American companies - and some stocks that were almost certainly transferred to Syria. Speculating but: Any airstrike on the caches would of course pollute the area and also obliterate the chain of custody evidence that indeed this was yet another Bush-originated obscenity...

Evidence of American War Crimes Likely Target in Syria

By Frank Gregory Ford, former U.S. Military Intelligence Agent

While Obama's Department of Justice seeks to shield the Bush Administration by declaring their war crimes “business as usual,” his Department of Defense prepares to eliminate hard evidence of those crimes by destroying Syria's stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Those WMDs came from us.

I saw canisters, “bombs,” of VX/GF in storage in Iraq. They were tagged showing they were shipped there from Ft. Rucker, Alabama by the Carlyle Group, the giant blue-ribbon finance-and-weapons conglomerate, home to former-President George H.W. Bush and other prominent war profiteers.

The nerve agent VX is the deadliest chemical weapon ever made. It is useful only for the indiscriminate destruction of human and animal life. It has been outlawed internationally, most recently by the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, by the Biological and Toxic Weapons Convention of 1972 and the Geneva Protocol of 1925.

We supplied VX to Iraq's leader, Saddam Hussein, before we named him an enemy. He used it in his war against Iran and against civilian Iraqi Kurds. I learned from an Iraqi official that just before our 2003 invasion Saddam shipped great quantities of gold and nerve gas to Syria. I reported this “actionable intelligence” to my superiors, but no action followed.

The stockpile I saw was never shipped out of Iraq. It was hidden from weapons inspectors until I and others saw it in 2003, just days after we invaded. It was soon removed from its concealment by British specialists and destroyed.

It is virtually certain that this weapons cache is targeted in our run-up to an attack on Syria—as before, with Iraq—for using U.S.-made weapons. The attack is also virtually certain to eliminate evidence of complicity by the Bush presidents, father and son, who, through their positions as American presidents and as associates of the Carlyle Group and myriad other military contractors, provided them to the warring nations of the Middle East.

As with Iraq, Afghanistan and so many of America's recent military engagements, this looming rebuke to Bashar al-Assad for allegedly using internationally outlawed American-made weapons, will fall on a vastly smaller opponent. Syria has a population of fewer than 23 million highly vulnerable men, women and children in a country that would fit in Texas almost four times. The capital, Damascus, the home of the government and location of the WMD stockpile, is the oldest continuously occupied city in the world.

Here is some more material on the Radio Free Asia / Broadcasting Board of Governors apparatus via alternative journalist Wayne Madsen, who himself is under a bit of pressure from nasty bloggers for reporting on EU NSA surveillance and other unorthodox stories….

George Soros’s and the Neo-Cons’ Control of Washington’s Propaganda Program > Strategic-Culture.org - Strategic Culture Foundation - April 25 2012

An examination of the current 2013 budget for the U.S. government’s Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) that oversees the International Broadcasting Board (IBB) and which determines the slant taken by the U.S. government’s propaganda efforts on radio, television, and, increasingly on the Internet, illustrates the head-lock that George Soros and neo-conservative “soft power projection” interests have on the official state-sponsored information disseminated by the U.S. government to a global audience.

The new propaganda bias of such IBB-controlled outlets such as the Voice of America, Radio Free Asia, and Radio Free Europe should comes as no surprise, considering that former CNN chairman and chief executive officer Walter Isaacson laid down the gauntlet after he assumed the chairmanship of the Broadcasting Board of Governors in 2009 by calling for the United States to aggressively challenge what he termed anti-American “propaganda” emanating from such international broadcasters as RT (the former Russia Today), Iran’s Press TV, and China’s CCTV. Isaacson walks in lock-step with the goals of Soros and the Council on Foreign Relations as the head of the politically-connected Aspen Institute. Isaacson stepped down from his broadcasting chairmanship position in January 2012.

The priorities for U.S. propaganda include stepping up efforts to effect political change in what are termed the five remaining “Communist” countries in the world through Cold War-era dissemination of “news” and other content via the Voice of America (VOA), the Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB) , and “grantee” organizations RFE/RL (Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty), Inc., and Radio Free Asia (RFA). Soros’s Open Society Institute holds a predominant role in the administration of the “grantee” broadcast arms, which were originally operated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) before de facto control was passed to Soros after the collapse of communism in Europe. The targeted five remaining communist nations are China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, and Vietnam.

The BBG claims that America’s propaganda efforts reach a global audience of 187 million people and that the 59 language broadcasts to over 100 nations costs less than a mere $5 million per year. The BBG budget request contains all the Soros code phrases in describing America’s “highest standards of journalistic independence, ethics, and objectivity” and support of “democracy, civil society, and transparent institutions around the world.”

Check in there for more infos. It's a nasty Soros pass thru fo sho! … Also check out LittleSis.org for more crowdsourced, cited info on these kinds of orgs and players..

BREAKING: NSA whistleblower Russ Tice says Obama spied on by NSA; Colin Powell's telecoms tracked by NSA satellite tech

///// UPDATE Friday 2pm Central: Tice got squelched by shady NBC lawyers at the last second according to BoilingFrogsPost.com:

Today MSNBC aired an interview with Mr. Tice disclosing “some” of his revelations, thanks to the vigilant activists who tirelessly shared and disseminated Mr. Tice’s revelations and interview audio. Interestingly, at the last minute, MSNBC told Mr. Tice that they would NOT include his revelations on NSA’s targeting of Obama, elected officials, attorneys, judges and activists. Basically, they censored his entire testimony on these stunning allegations!
In a correspondence with Boiling Frogs Post immediately following his censored interview with MSNBC Mr. Tice stated: “When they were placing the ear-phone in my ear with less than ten minutes left till my air time, the producer in New York said that their lawyers were discussing the material, and at this time, they did not want me to mention anything about the NSA wiretaps against all the people and organizations that I mentioned. That is how it went down. I did say on the air that I know it is much worse and would like to talk about that some time.”

Been waiting to hear more material from Russ Tice, one of the earlier NSA whistleblowers. Fortunately one of our ol' underdogs BoilingFrogsPost.com & Sibel Edmonds got Tice to lay out a lot of new stuff. Tice was a major source for NSA revelations including the 2005 NY Times warrantless wiretapping story.

Named NSA targets by Tice include current Supreme Court Justice Alito, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, Rep. Henry Waxman, then-Sen. Evan Bayh, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, then-US Rep. Kucinich. And of course President Obama.

Here is a quick clip: via very big on FiredogLake: BREAKING: NSA Whistleblower Russ Tice Alleges NSA Wiretapped Then-Sen. Candidate Barack Obama | MyFDL

In this bombshell episode of the Boiling Frogs Post Podcast Show NSA whistleblower Russ Tice joins us to go on record for the first time with new revelations and the names of official culprits involved in the NSA’s illegal practices. Mr. Tice explains in detail how the National Security Agency targets, sucks-in, stores and analyzes illegally obtained content from the masses in the United States. He contradicts officials and the mainstream media on the status of the NSA’s Utah facility, which is already operating and “On-Line.” He reveals the NSA as a Deep State that targets and wiretaps US political candidates for its own purposes. We discuss the latest controversies involving the NSA, PRISM, Edward Snowden, and the spins and lies that are being floated by the US mainstream and pseudo-alternative media. Do NOT miss this revelatory interview.

"You wouldn't happen to know where that guy lives right now would you? It's a big white house in Washington, D.C. That's who they went after, and that's the president of the United States now."

There was a lot of specific references to space-based platforms - that is National Security Agency satellite technology - which was Tice's specialty to which he has now apparently turned The Blowtorch with excellent timing.

At the Guardian: Procedures used by NSA to target non-US persons: Exhibit A – full document | World news | guardian.co.uk && Revealed: the top secret rules that allow NSA to use US data without a warrant | World news | guardian.co.uk

Vast discretion vested in NSA analysts -- Glenn Greenwald http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jun/19/fisa-court-oversight-process-secrecy

The vast amount of discretion vested in NSA analysts is also demonstrated by the training and briefings given to them by the agency. In one such briefing from an official with the NSA’s general counsel’s office – a top secret transcript of which was obtained by the Guardian, dated 2008 and then updated for 2013 – NSA analysts are told how much the new Fisa law diluted the prior standards and how much discretion they now have in deciding whose communications to intercept:

“The court gets to look at procedures for saying that there is a reasonable belief for saying that a target is outside of the United States. Once again – a major change from the targeting under Fisa. Under Fisa you had to have probable cause to believe that the target was a foreign power or agent of a foreign power. Here all you need is a reasonable belief that the target is outside of the United States …

“Now, all kinds of information can be used to this end. There’s a list in the targeting procedures: phone directories, finished foreign intelligence, NSA technical analysis of selectors, lead information. Now, you don’t have to check a box in every one of those categories. But you have to look at everything you’ve got and make a judgment. Looking at everything, do you have a reasonable belief that your target is outside the United States? So, cast your search wide. But don’t feel as though you have to have something in every category. In the end, what matters is, ‘Does all that add up to a reasonable belief that your target is outside the United States?’”

So vast is this discretion that NSA analysts even have the authority to surveil communications between their targets and their lawyers, and that information can be not just stored but also disseminated. NSA procedures do not ban such interception, but rather set forth procedures to be followed in the event that the NSA analyst believes they should be “disseminated”.

The decisions about who has their emails and telephone calls intercepted by the NSA is made by the NSA itself, not by the Fisa court, except where the NSA itself concludes the person is a US citizen and/or the communication is exclusively domestic. But even in such cases, the NSA often ends up intercepting those communications of Americans without individualized warrants, and all of this is left to the discretion of the NSA analysts with no real judicial oversight.

The other heinous thing - well one other thing - is the secret TPP treaty. I'm glad reelected Rep. Alan Grayson is going to kick at it. First Congressman Allowed to Read Secret Treaty Says “This ... Hands The Sovereignty of Our Country Over to Corporate Interests” | Zero Hedge

The TPP is nicknamed “NAFTA on steroids.” Now that I’ve read it, I can see why. I can’t tell you what’s in the agreement, because the U.S. Trade Representative calls it classified. But I can tell you two things about it.

1) There is no national security purpose in keeping this text secret.

2) This agreement hands the sovereignty of our country over to corporate interests.

3) What they can’t afford to tell the American public is that [the rest of this sentence is classified].

……..

It is ironic in a way that the government thinks it's alright to have a record of every single call that an American makes, but not alright for an American citizen to know what sovereign powers the government is negotiating away.

Having seen what I’ve seen, I would characterize this as a gross abrogation of American sovereignty. And I would further characterize it as a punch in the face to the middle class of America. I think that’s fair to say from what I’ve seen so far. But I’m not allowed to tell you why!

The New 21st Century COINTELPRO Mobius Strip: Undisclosed Participation, "OTHERWISE ILLEGAL ACTIVITY," Federal & State Informants, drug ops auditing in MN

fbi-mobiusstrip.jpg

A quick update on a number of different fronts developing around 21st century Cointelpro operations. This material includes the important bureaucratic fault line of authorizing "otherwise" illegal government operations, an important topic of research... Granted, Season 3 of the X-Files is playing over my shoulder, a product of a more skeptical decade. Yeah, the truth is out there - and at least here we get tiny, but real, slivers of crucial folds in the origami.

The FBI file and the Minnesota State Auditor files aren't really smoking guns, but they clearly show us interesting & almost totally unknown new levels of the modern 21st century COINTELPRO system. Four apparently new documents about the obscure and rather deliberately shadowy world around the insertion of informants into political organizations, information with implications for any political movement that might get "spammed" by fake realities generated by people working as informant handlers, or also in the state level documents, outstate drug buys, interesting examples of cash, firearms and drugs floating around. The "upper" FBI reality described here certainly has implications for the "lower" state-level drug operations, paid informant & prosecution world - thus they make an interesting contrast for one post!

From two different sources, parts of the FBI's Unclassified / For Official Use Only (FOUO) Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide [DIOG] apparently revised September 5 2007, and from the other set of requests, Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto's office checks in on the processes of outstate drug task forces engaged in asset forfeiture, drug buys, firearms stuff. When various audited processes turn out to be fails, some corrective actions are recommended. I'm also throwing in a motion for discovery on certain types of informants that could be promising - the next step down this line.

This is a continuation of: 2010 Oklahoma City Bombing Conspiracy Notes for April 19; Eric Holder's Trentadue Mission; SPLC Cutout @ Elohim City; CIA, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency roles | HongPong.com. See also our friends who made A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995 - writeup.

The topic of the FBI file is certain to make almost any careerist in the world of "that Law thing" squirm because it is a form of documentation showing the entire edifice is one MC Escher-style mobius strip of fake morality, crimes truly authorized on paper -- heavily censored paper, but this is indeed clearly one such paper without any doubt.

Other parts of a similar DIOG file, with the same front page, was published by the ACLU in 2011(included below), but I think we got some new pages here. It's usually hard to find the precise chunks or "twists of the mobius strip of officially sanctioned crime" but fortunately I think we all got at least a few entirely fresh pages via a lucky FOIA. (I'm not totally certain the FBI drop is truly partly-new, but I haven't found key matching pages elsewhere. Plz let me know if you do!)

Group readings of this file [with a toast for every LOL] should be a mandatory drinking game / CLE for every single bar association and law review, because they show that the entire conceit is one big clusterfail, and I would dare any lawyer to make a coherent argument to the contrary.

This new relatively short FBI FOIA, I'm suspecting right now, hit some new paydirt because there are certain subtypes of FBI informants that are described with certain keywords, which could include people violating confidences, including within the media, clergy, doctors, lawyers etc. It opens up a line of inquiry that one Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue, has apparently stumbled into in his long-rolling FOIA lawsuit spurred by the suspicious murder of his brother in a federal prison (see KennethTrentadue.com for more).

At least we get some look at the terrain of specially labeled, high level FBI informants, the Gerald Fords of the world if you will [aka the Warren Commission snitch]. I can't think of another source that quite nails the different categories of FBI informants like the motion posted below, filed in the lawsuit which already has produced this (not to mention hard proof the CIA have at least some formal records of something related to the Oklahoma City Bombing still censored from our reach).

Mother Jones covered his case including the CIA angle in 7/2011: Did the FBI Bury Oklahoma City Bombing Evidence? | Mother Jones. Also: Trentadue OKC Lawsuits Expand To CIA, Add Demand For Videos via @intelwire. This new document also references the decidedly low-profile realm of private companies operated as FBI fronts. Not too bad!

On the Minnesota side, these drug task force audits are in fact publicly requestable records but not released on the interweb by default (part of the reason that very very few people are aware of the state auditor Otto's overall respectable role in the scheme of things).

Let's dive in - look for your favorite weird angle including FBI-controlled front businesses, "otherwise" illegal acts, and creating synthetic detours in authentic First Amendment Expression! Show to your favorite law-and-order acquaintances for some high-quality cognitive dissonance! :-D

OTHER NOTES:

Among the other small angles to consider here, the role of Executive Order 12333 from Ronald Reagan indeed turns out to be crucial in understanding the formal institutionalization of the FBI as a bureaucracy which can operate illegally, in the realm of intelligence. It was pointed out in Al Martin's The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider that EO12333 was an important greenlight of sorts, as it led the way for "legalizing the illegal systems" of the "Iran-Contra" world particularly those involving drug and weapons trafficking through private shell companies (and EO12333 does talk a lot about front companies operated for intel functions).

Also I am adding part of a post from Bob McCarty about this case and this particular request, which shows a pretty good avenue into further inquiry. We could expect at least a few more interesting crumbs out of this line of research - certainly, stuff worth looking at. [A whole series of McCarty posts on Oklahoma City and the Trentadue inquiry I haven't even looked at!]

SOURCE: Brother of Murder Victim Seeks Details of FBI's 'Sensitive Informant Program' | BobMcCarty.com

Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue filed a motion Monday asking a federal judge to determine whether he is entitled to limited discovery into the FBI’s “Sensitive Informant Program.”

In his motion, Trentadue described the program as one used by the bureau “to recruit and/or place informants on the staffs of members of the United States Congress and perhaps even federal judges, in the national media, within other federal agencies as well as the White House, on defense teams in high-profile federal and/or state criminal prosecutions, inside state and local law enforcement agencies, and even among the clergy of organized religions.”

Trentadue’s interest in the program stems from questions that have surfaced during his ongoing investigation into the death of Kenneth Trentadue, his brother who died in 1995 under suspicious circumstances while in custody at the U.S. Bureau of Prisons Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City, months after theOklahoma City Bombing.

With his latest legal maneuver, Trentadue hopes to convince Judge Clark Waddoups to compel the FBI to provide all documentation outlining what he describes in the motion as an“unlawful and unconstitutional domestic spying program.”

The maneuver comes almost four weeks after the FBI answered a federal court complaint Trentadue filed under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain copies of the manual the FBI uses to recruit and place“sensitive informants.” Citing national security concerns as the basis for their response, FBI officials answered that complaint by saying they “can neither confirm nor deny the allegations [of the Complaint] regarding its confidential informant program.”

Shown below, Trentadue’s definition of a “sensitive informant” is, perhaps, the most interesting aspect of his motion:

“…the term ‘Sensitive Informant’ is defined as anyone acting, directly or indirectly and with or without any compensation, on behalf of the FBI as a member of, person associated with or otherwise a participant in or observer of the activity or activities of an entity, organization, group, governmental agency or unit, association of organizations or individuals, public official, member of Congress, judge, cleric and/or religious or political organization AND who does not disclose or reveal to such entity, organization, group, governmental agency or unit, association of organizations or individuals, public official, member of Congress, judge, cleric and/or religious or political organization his or her FBI affiliation.

“A Sensitive Informant is, in other words, some one who is acting, directly or indirectly, on behalf of the FBI as an undisclosed participant in or observer of the activity or activities of an entity, organization, group, governmental agency or unit, association of organizations or individuals, public official, member of Congress, judge, cleric and/or religious or political organization.

“The term ‘Sensitive Informant’ likewise includes what the FBI’s current terminology refers to as a ‘Confidential Human Source’ including any and all sub-categories of Confidential Human Sources such as, but not limited to, what the FBI refers to as a ‘Privileged Confidential Human Source,’ who is someone reporting confidential information to the FBI in violation of a privilege such as an attorney reporting his client’s confidential communications, a physician reporting upon his patient’s medical or mental condition, a cleric informing on a member of his or her church or other religious organization, etc.

In his motion, Trentadue requested the judge order FBI officials to answer 11 critical questions about the scope of their “Sensitive Informant Program” prior to a yet-to-be-scheduled hearing during which, according to Trentadue, FBI officials have said they will file a motion for summary judgment to prevent him access to the information he seeks.

Looking only for numbers of Sensitive Informants and not for specific names from the FBI, Trentadue’s questions target the time frame, “since January 1, 1995.” In short, he wants to know whether or not the agency has had Sensitive Informants inside a variety of government and non-governmental organizations.

Among the government organizations mentioned in his queries were the state and federal court systems, the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, federal agencies other than the FBI, federal prosecutors’ offices, and law enforcement agencies at the municipal, county and state levels.

Among non-governmental agencies, he listed management positions inside news organizations, including but not limited to, the following:  Associated Press, ABC,CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, NPR, PBS, Reuters or Scripps-Howard;Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and/or Washington Post; The Daily Beast, Mother Jones, The New American, Newsweek, TIME and/orU.S. News & World Report.

Curiously, he also asked whether the FBI has had a Sensitive Informant(s) who was a cleric or member of the clergy in any religious organization.

Though I doubt the FBI will answer Trentadue’s questions, I’m convinced the attorney will continue fighting until he learns the whole truth about his brother’s death and, perhaps, about the Oklahoma City Bombing, too.

To appreciate the full scope and breadth of Trentadue’s latest effort, I suggest you read the motion. It’s one of more than two-dozen posts I’ve published in my series, Untold Stories of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Included in the series are more than a dozen posts aboutTrentadue’s pursuit of the truth.

Hopefully not a problem to copy the post as this is a relatively important issue. Anyway I will leave it there for the moment as the hour is late. Informants and protected illegal operations -- truly the can of worms is enormous. The FBI's informant systems across many elite sectors remains to be sniffed out further - and the curious goings-on of obscure rural Minnesota drug task forces also suggests more research is needed.

The other problems with informants, the political spam and the psychological wreckage they leave in their wake -- along with indeed the damage to their own psyches -- will hopefully get further attention, as we have a few other key facts bubbling up. Good luck to everyone on finding more info - regardless of political orientation it's really important to nail down as much of this stuff as possible, before you get spammed by yet another informant!!

MK Occupy Minnesota: The Drug Recognition Evaluator BCA Investigation files

By Dan Feidt -- hongpong.com -- MINNEAPOLIS -- NOV 12 2012 -- Law enforcement officers under a state training program called Drug Recognition Evaluators encouraged people in downtown Minneapolis, including Occupy Minnesota protesters at Peavey Plaza and other vulnerable and houseless people to participate in alcohol and drug intoxication evaluations. After a 35-minute video "MK Occupy Minnesota" [produced by Occupy Minneapolis, Communities United Against Police Brutality, Rogue Media & Twin Cities Indymedia] was released documenting claims of several DRE participants they'd been given drugs and encouraged to take drugs, an officer from Hutchinson, MN, stepped forward to corroborate part of that story.

UPDATE Nov 28: For a DRE training manual & a few other docs see the update. Thanks to CityPages for doing a whole series of posts including an interview.

Mn Bureau of Criminal Apprehension under the Department of Public Safety, generated a 513-page investigative report described in Minnesota Public Radio & Star Tribune stories, but not available publicly in full until now, adding another chunk to this incomplete story from one of the many gray areas in the war on drugs & the suppression of Occupy protesters.

SCRIBD URL: http://www.scribd.com/doc/112922193/DRE-Investigation-BCA

DRE Investigation BCA

This BCA report, a compilation of interviews, correspondence & law enforcement & their lawyers refusing to answer the BCA's questions about DRE, raises many questions. Besides the claims of the Occupy protesters, many unethical practices including cash for participation, discussing gaining "leverage" over "volunteers" by threatening to arrest them (pg 76), not having an ambulance near where people were encouraged to take drugs at the gravel pit in Richfield near the MnDOT garage, no waivers, the explicit suspending of state drug laws for a privately organized certification program (pg 91, 99), etc.

Many of the officers discuss a general sense of unease across their entire class, of trespassing certain obvious moral or ethical boundaries ('your morals are gone', pg 428). As Minneapolis considers dissolving the Civilian Review Authority oversight board, many connections to the Minneapolis Police Department including the 5th Precinct have not been reviewed.

Other items include: a BCA AT&T phone subpoena to trace phone/SMS activity by one of the officers involved, and more on the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) role in the program (pg 223, 231) -- as an officer discusses, they're called "evaluators" rather than "experts" because the courts don't really recognize it (pg 202). IACP receives large donations from major defense contractors to promote local police policies expanding biometrics & surveillance, war-on-terror tech deployed at home, mass incarceration and intensifying the war on drugs. The IACP has managed to impose this pseudo-legal yet scientifically unproven framework, the DRE, with its morally abhorrent training program, on many states besides Minnesota.

In the end of this phase, the Hennepin County Attorney's office ruled out filing charges after so many officers stonewalled (pg 54-57) [as the Strib noted, some of the same same legal operations used by the disgraced Metro Gang Strike Force officers]. Pages significant to documenting the way illegal government operations in Minnesota get papered over, the 'coverup machine' network of lawyered up law enforcement, listed below ('get everyone quiet', pg 367)-- and really, Hennepin concluded, unless an officer handed out a generous 42 grams in one sitting, it wouldn't be a felony crime.

While everything in this strange report should be taken critically, disturbing themes of emerge of relatively young rural police officers being sent around Minneapolis to find the chemically dependent & mentally ill, turn them loose again after they're intoxicated, without any help like medical or social support, and connections to further gray areas like developing informants in the drug world(pg 381), and a methamphetamine-addicted informant handled into performing an evaluation by a Ramsey County deputy.

Another key subject is the Donald Steven Turner interview (pg 485-492) wherein he describes not only his certainty that Occupiers were lying, he seemingly brags about giving a Minneapolis police officer he knows one person's name and then scaring them into jumping a train out of town, talking up his ability to develop 'profiles' on OccupyMN members, etc. While the authorities describe Turner as a credible OccupyMN member, he had a reputation for scuffling with people and being tossed from Occupy meetings, taking at least one bike, and other serious issues stretching back long before Occupy started in New York. This are some of the most jaded & disturbing statements I've ever seen documented, seemingly bragging about informing to spread fear. More interviews with others he affected are really needed to tell this particular story. Whether or not his statements have any validity, the damage to privacy of third parties he named has already been done in his statement to law enforcement -- unfortunately, redacting the first names Don put out there would do no good.

Voters showed last week they're becoming increasingly weary of the war on drugs, which has generated huge profits for lawyers, corporations, banks and Wall Street through laundered money. All this shadiness isn't a bug, it's a feature. Will Minnesota recognize the failure of the war on drugs and cancel abusive, unscientific programs like the DRE? Can Minnesota shift from punishment, coercion & incarceration to harm-reduction chemical dependency policies that treat everyone humanely?

[birthday/phone/contact info of people targeted by DRE was removed with black rectangles. This document did not arrive via government/data practices channels, and some other details, likely police personal details like cell phone & home addresses were apparently removed with marker probably by the BCA.]

FawkesFail: Even more #OpCartel related shadiness: Anonymous hive instantly rejects @FawkesSecurity feds/contractors/fools posting violent threat, false flag or buffoonery

‏@AnonNCarolina2 - We spend all night informing ppl about indefinite detention only to be placed at the top of the list by some dumbfuck. #StopNDAA#Anonymous - SOURCE

Fortunately #stopNDAA at least hit a huge volume on twitter during tonight's presidential debate. So... Synchronicity in the Fog? Less than 24 hours after posting loose notes on #OpCartel & possible evidence of related Anonymous false flags / synthetic setups staged by contractors and handlers ( ECHELON GCSB military surveillance vs New Zealand & Kim Dotcom; IRC logs on Anonymous false flag attacks viewed anew; Barrett Brown setup via #OpCartel ) naturally yet another very similar likely falseflag trial balloon (or sheer dumbassery) has just been sent up. It's easy to speculate this is intended to defame &/or distract from stuff like the announced Tyler P2P leaking platform project & other peaceful modes of information dissent.

The first time I heard of FawkesSec (assuming that's the same general thing as FawkesSecurity) I heard it was a contractor setup. And now here we are. I'm not the only one who noticed a flow of BS. & also this.

/// UPDATE: @anon_prole flags: "RT @MsSamanthaMarie FB profile is the admin to FawkesSecurity group page that's listed on twitter profile https://www.facebook.com/jodie.rushforth @Anonyops" and "FYI our friend Fawkessecurity was the one threatening @twitter 4 @Anon_Central suspension https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xDRwRIzbeY … cc. @Anony_Central @Anonyops". /// Someone instantly made a semi-offensive Flash anime about this?

The crazy thing is that the new bomb threat video posted by @fawkesSecurity uses the same basic video file as the original #OpCartel video, which is broadly believed to have been a setup or falseflag. [see this one for the highest view count] O_o

On the diametrically opposite side, this seems pretty representative of the genuine idea among the 'real Anonymous', having observed for some time: AnonPaste via Twitter / Anon_Prole: #ProTip: Whoever claims to ...

Anonymous is a non-violent resistance movement consisting of a global collective of autonomous individuals who adhere to these basic principles: 1) Do not attack the media. (This includes main stream, independent, and social media) 2) Do not attack critical infrastructure. (Such as communications networks, power grids - or hospitals) 3) Work for Justice and Freedom. (Especially with regards to freedom of information and the internet) ANYONE anywhere can initiate an Anonymous operation, action, or group - and so long as they adhere to these basic principles they are as much Anonymous as anyone. EVERYONE is Anonymous.

Ohai /b/ros,

Welcome sit sit sit... Grab some popcorn and watch this fail.

Fawkes Security whether fed or disinfo fucktard, has been 100% fail since day one.

Here is a little list of fails:

False Facebook attack fails.

Taking credit for others ddos attacks fail.

Attempting to link Project Mayhem 2012 / TYLER with physical disruption fail... (Just like NSA & DHS have attempted.)

AND NOW Linking #OpV with a bomb plot fail!

w0000000hoooo!

Anyhow, this Anon has simply gain fame by reuploading Anonymous videos onto Youtube for almost a year while creating hardly any videos which have NEVER amounted to anything.

This Anon is a cancer to the internet.

As for this Anon linking Project Mayhem 2012 to harmful and illegal activities ('Fawkes Virus', releasing viruses on 12.21.2012 and physical disruption.) we say, bring on the disinfo, we encourage it. Any disinfo you throw at us will only be fuel to the fire that will burn this world, because EVERYONE knows PM2012 will NEVER do ANYTHING ILLEGAL.

At this time, we are not sure whether or not @FawkesSecurity is trying to troll, or if he's trying to discredit the name of Anonymous

Democrats' hypocrisy in our sick & violent decade -- Harpers: Eye of the Drone

Latest: Drone blitz on Pakistan enters third straight day | World news | guardian.co.uk - up to 27 people dead in strikes that began on Saturday. The US has jeopardized its Afghanistan campaign by refusing to apologize for the November 2011 cross-border 'friendly fire' incident which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. (Also: Drone wars and state secrecy – how Barack Obama became a hardliner | World news | The Observer)

We are sleepwalking into the Drone Age, unaware of the consequences:

Then, three days later, the CIA announced that it had eliminated "four militants". In truth there were only two victims: Tariq had been driving his 12-year-old cousin to their aunt's house when the Hellfire missile killed them both. This came just 24 hours after the CIA boasted of eliminating six other "militants" – actually, four chromite workers driving home from work. In both cases a local informant apparently tagged the car with a GPS monitor and lied to earn his fee.

Sounds familiar...

Yemen sets sail for fail: U.S. drone targets in Yemen raise questions - The Washington Post -- killing people that have not even a trace of evidence of any plot against the United States. But perhaps in the aftermath their relatives will...

The appalling news of the Obama Kill List -- reminiscent of LBJ's riffling through aerial photographs to select bombing targets in Vietnam, the archetypal example of losing any control over strategy for the addiction to powerful, violent tactics -- has disturbed many but also illustrated the sick hypocrisy of the mainstream 'left' in our country. If Cheney and the gang were up to this, they would be up in arms, but now you don't get a peep. Shocked I tell you.

I sent all kinds of tweets last weekend to press and attendees at the 2012 DFL State Convention to see if I could get any responses about the drone kill list, and none of these jokers had the gumption to even answer me. No one's touching kill lists this year with a ten foot pole. However I did net a few mainstream liberal twitter followers, silent and cowardly on the important issues they may be.

See also a bunch of shilling, summarized: The Media on Obama’s ‘Kill List’ | The Dissenter

As usual, the tactic itself is of course destined to backfire and create generational-scale hatred of our country. This is one of those "doomed to repeat it" things the military-industrial complex is so goddamned good at -- it's almost like their business model depends on perpetual violence. Clever heads are recognizing this: It may seem painless, but drone war in Afghanistan is destroying the West's reputation - Telegraph (UK)

Supporters of drones – and they make up practically the entire respectable political establishment in Britain and the US – argue that they are indispensable in the fight against al-Qaeda. But plenty of very experienced voices have expressed profound qualms. The former army officer David Kilcullen, one of the architects of the 2007 Iraqi surge, has warned that drone attacks create more extremists than they eliminate. Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, Britain’s former special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan, is equally adamant that drone attacks are horribly counter-productive because of the hatred they have started to generate: according to a recent poll, more than two thirds of Pakistanis regard the United States as an enemy. Britain used to be popular and respected in this part of the world for our wisdom and decency. Now, thanks to our refusal to challenge American military doctrine, we are hated, too.

Anyway I wanted to share the full text of Eye of the drone (Harper's Magazine) because it's one of those pieces which ought to reach through the shells of indifference to state violence we all build up - it cuts right to the sick nature of the decade we live in.

Thanks to Harper's for getting this piece out there -- for those that died and were deemed terrorists for their proximity to targets, "up to no good" because they gathered in their own communities to work on their problems.

From statements made in February by the families of victims and survivors of a March 17, 2011, drone attack in the village of Datta Khel in the Pakistani region of North Waziristan. The statements were collected by the British human rights group Reprieve and were included in their lawsuit challenging the legal right of the British government to aid the United States in its drone campaign. More than half of all deaths from U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan have occurred in North Waziristan. Translated from the Pashto.

I am approximately forty-six years old, though I do not know the exact date of my birth. I am a malice of my tribe, meaning that I am a man of responsibility among my people. One of my brother’s sons, Din Mohammed, whom I was very fond of, was killed by a drone missile on March 17, 2011. He was one of about forty people who died in this strike. Din Mohammed was twenty-five years old when he died. These men were gathered together for a jirga, a gathering of tribal elders to solve disputes. This particular jirga was to solve a disagreement over chromite, a mineral mined in Waziristan. My nephew was attending the jirga because he was involved in the transport and sale of this mineral. My brother, Din Mohammed’s father, arrived at the scene of the strike shortly following the attack. He saw death all around him, and then he found his own son. My brother had to bring his son back home in pieces. That was all that remained of Din Mohammed.

I saw my father about three hours before the drone strike killed him. News of the strike didn’t reach me until later, and I arrived at the location in the evening. When I got off the bus near the bazaar, I immediately saw flames in and around the station. The fires burned for two days straight. I went to where the jirga had been held. There were still people lying around injured. The tribal elders who had been killed could not be identified because there were body parts strewn about. The smell was awful. I just collected the pieces of flesh that I believed belonged to my father and placed them in a small coffin.

The sudden loss of so many elders and leaders in my community has had a tremendous impact. Everyone is now afraid to gather together to hold jirgas and solve our problems. Even if we want to come together to protest the illegal drone strikes, we fear that meeting to discuss how to peacefully protest will put us at risk of being killed by drones.

The first time I saw a drone in the sky was about eight years ago, when I was thirteen. I have counted six or seven drone strikes in my village since the beginning of 2012. There were sixty or seventy primary schools in and around my village, but only a few remain today. Few children attend school because they fear for their lives walking to and from their homes. I am mostly illiterate. I stopped going to school because we were all very afraid that we would be killed. I am twenty-one years old. My time has passed. I cannot learn how to read or write so that I can better my life. But I very much wish my children to grow up without these killer drones hovering above, so that they may get the education and life I was denied.

The men who died in this strike were our leaders; the ones we turned to for all forms of support. We always knew that drone strikes were wrong, that they encroached on Pakistan’s sovereign territory. We knew that innocent civilians had been killed. However, we did not realize how callous and cruel it could be. The community is now plagued with fear. The tribal elders are afraid to gather together in jirgas, as had been our custom for more than a century. The mothers and wives plead with the men not to congregate together. They do not want to lose any more of their husbands, sons, brothers, and nephews. People in the same family now sleep apart because they do not want their togetherness to be viewed suspiciously through the eye of the drone. They do not want to become the next target.

A moment of police state zen: White House-approved Homeland Security talking points deny federal coordination of Occupy crackdown, in middle of fed email spool coordinating Occupy crackdown

A bunch of new documents have been FOIA'd out showing the various layers of Occupy crackdown. We certainly watched it all happen pretty rapidly from the ol GlobalRev catbird seat. One week, everything seemed weirdly quiet on the eviction front -- then seemingly overnight the police squads rushed in across the country and crushed the camps.

It was an interesting time... wasn't it? As the documents trickle out, we'll start to really see the whole darn thing in a new light -- certainly Occupy enticed so many bad actors & ugly authoritarian meme-systems to head into the blazing scene, intervening in so many ways.

White House (WH) approved talking points from: Partnership for Civil Justice Fund - DHS Releases More Documents on Occupy to PCJF:

Some hub of shenanigans known as the Homeland Security National Operations Center (or NOC) was evidently the front desk for a lot of this, but PCJF suspects, that looked pretty bad so they redirected put it through local police backchannels as well.

A classic little highlight here from five days before the White House approved talking points, thanks to PCJF:
