Flawed but Riveting Apr 29, 2010
This book is not well written, but that doesn't matter. It also doesn't answer the big question, which is why the government decided to ignore the obvious Middle Eastern involvement in the bombing. The Administration and the FBI appraently wanted so badly to convict McVeigh and Nichols that they were willing to overlook everything else to make sure of the convictions. In addition, our close relationship with the Saudis probably played into our reluctance to follow the leads the KFOR team developed.
Despite the rambling format, this is a fascinating book, and one that everyone should read. It makes a convincing case that the Oklahoma City bombing was carried out by the same group of people that later attacked the World Trade Center in New York McVeigh and Nichols were just front men, soldiers. Certainly guilty, but not the planners or initiators of the action.
If we don't improve at understanding who we're fighting, we're going to lose this war!
An Issue that will remain! Feb 14, 2010
From the first World Trade Center bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing, the downing of TWA Flight 800, the Clinton administration was bound and determined not to get involved in foreign entanglements (War) and controlled the information and narrative of these disasters. The fact the Iraqi intelligence (under Saddam Hussein) played a significant role to these "man caused disasters" was to never see the light of day! Blaming the OK city bombing on domestic terrorists accomplished two things. It provided impetuous for Congress to pass onerous anti terrorism legislation and more importantly, to dampen the Patriot movement. Once again, we as a country are burying our heads in the sand and pretending that everything will be OK if we just whistle loud enough. The next attack will be devestating and the result will be martial law. Loss of all freedoms. Remember, the real threat (according to Napolitano) are pro-life groups and veterans, not islamo facists. Ignore the facts at your own peril!
This is why President Clinton endorse the Iraqi Invasion! Feb 14, 2010
Have you ever wondered why President Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton both, whole heartedly supported the invasion of Iraq after our invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11? It wasn't the "weapons of mass destruction" it was their knowledge of Iraq's involvement with the Oklahoma City bombing. They knew the story but failed to take action. I could not understand the why President Bush invaded Iraq, after the invasion of Afghanistan, until I recalled the links in Jayana Davis book "The Third Terrorist...". Once you read this book you too will have an eye opening experience to the real reason for the Iraqi invasion...pay back!
A frightening expose of government incompetence. Dec 28, 2009
After having read this book, I found myself left with a profound lack of faith our government is capable of their first duty, protecting the citizens of this country. 9/11 proved that in spades.
Worse, it seems this government is impotent in dealing with terrorists in this country whether foreign or domestic, especially if there is even a hint, some blame could be ascribed, and the higher the blame goes, the more desperate they are to cover their collectives asses and sweep the threat under the rug. It is clear those coconspirators were Iraqis intelligence plants, and our people (under Clinton's watch) just watched it all go down. So massive CYA was the order of the day, paving the way for the worse to come.
Perhaps the most appalling aspect of this whole affair is the ignorance of public in general and certain commentators on these pages in particular.
Shame on you ignorant people for being more interested in political boot licking than the safety of your fellow citizens.
Ignorance is as effective of a killer as the ANOF that brought down that building.
What a Page-Turner! May 5, 2009
Those who after the Oklahoma City bombers' trials remained haunted by a nagging skepticism toward the thesis that Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols acted as the sole agents of destruction, will be riveted by Jayna Davis's absorbing account of her tenacious pursuit of the truth. The answers provided by Davis's compelling analysis may paint a horrendous picture, but at least they are answers. The unanswered questions, however, which develop as this investigative saga unfolds are almost as disturbing as the original query for culpability. From what point higher up on the political chain of command was the directive given to squelch the investigation into Middle Eastern collaboration with McVeigh and Nichols? And will similar ineptitude on the part of federal authorities result, in the future, in further repeat performances of such an atrocity?
