The truth is out there - An attorney carrying out an unofficial investigation into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, has claimed that the 26 videotapes handed over by the FBI, have in some way be edited. The recordings show the aftermath of the attack, in which 168 people were killed, but do not carry any images of the period leading up to the attack. The FBI have denied any tampering with the recordings, or the existance of any other material". - Source - Associated Press 30th September 2009
We can't quite see you - San Francisco Police Chief George Gascon has urged a move towards real time monitoring of the city's 71 security cameras.
