Quote from RT article: “The last four members of the armed standoff in Oregon have reportedly said they left booby traps at the wildlife refuge before surrendering, but refuse to detail the locations or say if there were trip wires or other devices that could trigger them.”
Comment from a reader in reference to the above statement:
“…an unnamed law enforcement official told Reuters.”
The unaccountable cloak of anonymity strikes again. Just trust us. Yes, the incessant lies from the FBI and mainstream news are difficult to take.
The explosives that the occupiers are said to have “possessed when they began their protest” were already at the refuge before they arrived. They were stored at the firehouse by the BLM themselves. You can listen to Ammon Bundy tell the FBI negotiator exactly that in a phone conversation from January 21st. He also said they would NEVER use them and were only cleaning things up to create a safer environment.
I had a feeling at the time that this information would later be warped and used against the protesters. You can listen to the conversation between Ammon and the FBI for yourself on the Pete Santilli livestream that was recorded at the time. Santilli, of course, is now in jail for being the only independent reporter with the guts to get the truth out to the world.
