Four Informants Told FBI Of Additional OKC Bombing Plotters

The FBI has admitted withholding information about informants who claimed Timothy McVeigh had additional accomplices in the Oklahoma City bombing, and a federal judge yesterday ordered the Bureau to perform new searches for documents relating to the case.

The 22-page ruling by Judge Dale Kimball in Trentadue v. FBI ordered the FBI to perform two new searches for specific documents, setting the stage for new disclosures about the Oklahoma City case, more than 10 years after the April 19, 1995 bombing which claimed the lives of 168 people.

Filings in the case also revealed the existence of at least four informants who were part of the Oklahoma City bombing investigation, including the one working undercover and another under an explicit confidentiality agreement.

The lawsuit was filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which compels the government to disclose information at the request of the public. The plaintiff, attorney Jesse Trentadue, began seeking information on the Oklahoma City bombing after the death of his brother, Kenneth Trentadue.

Jesse Trentadue believes his brother's death is related to the Oklahoma City case. In yesterday's ruling, Kimball noted in his ruling that Trentadue had "unearthed significant evidence of foul play" regarding his brother's death in a federal penitentiary, which was initially ruled a suicide.
