FEDS ARE HIDING EVIDENCE IN BOMB TRIAL

"ARE WE CERTAIN THAT A FERTILIZER BOMB DID THE DIRTY WORK;
OR WAS IT MERELY A COVER FOR WELL PLACED CHARGES WITHIN THE
BUILDING?" -- Tom Valentine
[CN: With the OKC bombing(s) trial of Tim McVeigh going into its
final phase, a puzzle is, Why didn't defense attorney Stephen
Jones challenge the prevailing notion that a fertilizer bomb, and
only a fertilizer bomb, brought down the Murrah Building? To
challenge the fertilizer bomb truism, that it alone was the
culprit, would not have necessitated any introduction of
"dreaded" conspiracy theories -- so why did Jones ignore that
aspect of the case? After all, it has *not* been proven that the
so-called "fertilizer bomb" *actually* did all the damage on
April 19, 1995; at least pointing that out, and even bringing
expert witnesses to challenge the notion, would have helped
McVeigh's defense. Stephen Jones *may* have a good reason for
his silence regarding hard physical evidence which casts doubt on
the "lone bomb theory"; time will tell.
The following article by Tom Valentine omits extensive quotes
from attorney Stephen Jones' "writ of mandamus." If you'd like a
copy of the entire 155-page writ, send a message to

In another sign of just how corrupt our federal government and
its supporters within the major media have become, evidence
continues to mount that the FBI and U.S. prosecutors in the
Oklahoma City bombing case are guilty of the felony of
"obstruction of justice."
What else can it be called?
Stephen Jones, attorney for Timothy McVeigh, filed a 155-page,
carefully detailed brief supporting a Writ of Mandamus on March
25 and not a peep has been heard about this important document
from the mainstream media.
The 10th District Court of Appeals denied the petition, stating
simply that they agree with Judge Richard Matsch that the
material should be "sealed."
Denying the accused access to documents held by the government,
which would surely implicate many more perpetrators of the
bombing and perhaps even an international plot, is certainly
obstructing any opportunity for justice.
It has been more than two years since the death and destruction
at the Alfred P. Murrah building rocked America. Two years
without a trial, but with innumerable machinations of propaganda,
demonization and emotional drama under the guise of "the most
massive investigation ever."
When the trial finally began a few weeks ago, the federal
government wasted opening day putting on witnesses to the tragedy
and pain, who were irrelevant as to whether Timothy McVeigh may
be the culprit as charged.
Judge Matsch, obviously playing his part in the seemingly
scripted melodrama, allowed the irrelevant testimony. Defense
attorney Jones, mindful of how it would look to object, did not
The hyping of the irrelevant testimony merely shows how much more
important the propaganda value is to the government case than the
-+- Evidence Destroyed -+-
In fact, within weeks of the bombing, the government used a
pathetic "psychological" excuse to destroy the evidence of the
bombed out building. Despite opposition to the blatant
destruction of evidence, the government blasted the rest of the
building into rubble, then carted the rubble away and buried it.
Any forensic examination is now impossible. Are we certain that
a fertilizer bomb did the dirty work; or was it merely a cover
for well placed charges within the building? Will we ever know?
In his detailed brief, Jones did not mention the FBI's use of
coercion on witnesses who saw things the Feds don't wish to
discuss, or the FBI's falsification of witness reports -- all of
which has been covered by The Spotlight and *Radio Free America*

-+- Exculpatory Evidence Denied -+-
Attorney Jones continues for more than 100 pages in his brief
with much more exculpatory evidence, all of which has been denied
and will not be admitted by Judge Richard Matsch who is
well-known as an obedient "federal man" who does whatever the
Justice Department wants him to, even if it concerns the real
murderers of 168 people in the worst terrorist action ever seen
in the United States.
From the day this petition was filed with the court, the major
media was aware of it. Why have Americans been denied this news?
The details revealed in the brief raise questions that require
