Documentary Offers Surprising New Details About OKC Bombing

When Chris Emery asked me to review a film, I was skeptical at first.  It was only because a mutual friend had sent him my way that I agreed to take a look at it.  Today, I’m glad I watched Free Mind Films’ two-hour documentary about the Oklahoma City Bombing, A NOBLE LIE.

Before watching A NOBLE LIE, I thought I had the market cornered when it came to knowledge of investigations, official and unofficial, related to the Oklahoma City Bombing.  When it arrived in my mailbox, my interest grew upon seeing it had received awards at no fewer than 10 film festivals across the county.  After watching the film, I realized I had learned something I hadn’t known about what really happened in downtown Oklahoma City the morning of April 19, 1995.

In my series, Untold Stories of the Oklahoma City Bombing, I’ve shared dozens of articles about investigations — official and unofficial — into the events that took place before and after 168 people lost their lives in and around the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.  I had not, however, shared a great deal of technical information about explosives science.

In A NOBLE LIE, Emery and his colleagues introduced me to insight offered by several technically-savvy experts who offered their professional opinions, backed up by first-hand experience with high-yield explosives and high-impact terror events.

Untold Stories of the OKC BombingWhen I shared my feedback with Emery, the only criticism I had to offer had to do with the amount of time — less than five minutes, I figure — the film makers allotted Alex Jones, the man behind the InfoWars website.

“If I was editing the film and its financing did not depend on giving Alex Jones more face time,” I wrote in a message to Emery, “I would have left him out or limited him to a minor role. He’s simply too polarizing, and giving him so much time reduces the film’s credibility among those who are harder to convince in the first place.”

I don’t want to spoil the film for you, so I’ll end my commentary with this:  Even with Jones’ involvement, A NOBLE LIE is worth buying, watching and sharing — and not just because it was made by people in the state of my birth (i.e., Oklahoma).  It backs up everything I’ve reported — and more!
