Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Merrick Garland “held a top-ranking post in the Justice Department when he was dispatched to Oklahoma City the day after the bombing at the federal courthouse to supervise the investigation. The case made his reputation. He oversaw the convictions of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, and later supervised the investigation into Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.” http://www.wsbradio.com/ap/ap/top-news/obama-ive-made-my-decision-on-supreme-court-nomine/nqmRb/
Garland’s background is very interesting in that both McVeigh and Kaczynski have mysterious histories with the Deep State and a good deal of effort was put forth by the government to keep these facts in the shadows. Ted Kaczynski, for example, was the subject of government psychological experiments (https://archive.org/details/dkazinmkult and http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2000/06/harvard-and-the-making-of-the-unabomber/378239/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Murray#Harvard_human_experiments), and McVeigh revealed two years before the OKC bombing that he had been tapped for undercover work with special forces (http://www.nytimes.com/1998/07/01/us/excerpts-from-timothy-mcveigh-letter.html).
There are also many questions about the government’s conduct in the McVeigh trial. For example, eyewitnesses saw a passenger in McVeigh’s vehicle shortly before the bombs went off and there are credible allegations that this passenger was an FBI operative, though predictably, these facts were not vetted at the trial. In addition, Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue, claims that in a case of mistaken identity, his brother Kenneth was suspected of being that passenger and was murdered in government custody. Here’s more on that compelling story: http://www.sltrib.com/news/1812657-155/fbi-trentadue-bombing-waddoups-federal-report and http://www.truthinjustice.org/trentadue.htm.
Supreme Court Nominee Garland is described as liberal-leaning except when it comes to criminal justice and national security…I read that as “no respect for property rights, indifferent toward the Bill of Rights and okay with undeclared wars.” Given his involvement in two highly suspect cases that seemed to require some degree of government cover-up, I don’t think we can count on this nominee to rise above politics and strictly interpret the Constitution. Given the policies his activism will likely serve, I would not like to see him confirmed, but given his history, he could be a shoo-in…then again, the way the psyops are coming fast and furious these days, he could be a decoy…we shall see!
