I'LL BE REMEMBERING THIS STORY ON MEMORIAL DAY:

TITLE: The FBI, the Torture and Murder of Kenneth Trentadue and Advanced Knowledge of the Oklahoma City Bombing

SUBTITLE: Uncovering a DOJ Coverup

AUTHOR: Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration

OPENING PARAGRAPHS: "In 1995 Kenneth Trentadue was murdered by federal agents in a federal prison in Oklahoma City. A coverup immediately went into effect. Federal authorities claimed Trentadue, who was being held in a suicide-proof cell, had committed suicide by hanging himself, but the state coroner would not buy the story.

"Prison authorities tried to get family consent to cremate the body. But Trentadue had been picked up on a minor parole violation, and the story of suicide by a happily married man delighted with his two-month old son raised red flags to the family.

"When the Trentadue family received Kenneth's body and heavy makeup was scraped away, the evidence (available in photos on the Internet--GRAPHIC!) clearly shows a person who had been tortured and beaten. His throat was slashed and he may have been garroted. There are bruises, burns and cuts from the soles of Trentadue's feet to his head, wounds that obviously were not self-inflicted".
