Summary:

The Associated Press reported that a lawyer's FOIA lawsuit for security tapes from cameras near the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City on the morning of its bombing by Timothy McVeigh on April 19, 1995 led the FBI to produce four tapes, though they all start shortly after the fatal explosion.

Notes:

The lawyer, Jesse Trentadue, has also used FOIA to obtain other related tapes and information, but he said that a separate request to the Central Intelligence Agency was denied after the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency declared that such a release "could cause grave damage to our national security."
