One of the more interesting books dealing with Mcveigh. Gives a feel for what type of person Mcveigh really was while taking a look at the inner workings of federal death row. I only wish it had a better publisher because it was filled with spelling errors and bad editing which slightly butchered the work of these two authors. And the price is a little steep. But the information is worth the price... Another piece of the puzzle.

As an avid reader of anything about Tim McVeigh,I waited a long time for this book to come out.I was not disappointed. This book is amazing and it has such an emotional impact on me that I have to let months go by in between readings of it.This book gives you a vivid, real picture of the last two years of Tim's life. It reports a day to day account of the last 2 weeks of his life before he was sadly executed.While Tim haters would probably enjoy it,I was heartbroken as such a bright young man was put to death among the hatred of so many.
The best thing about this book is that it colorfully illustrates Tim as a person. A human being , not a monster. A good person in spite of his actions.This writing also painfully illustrates another side of the death penalty from a side most people don't see or care about-the condemned persons family and friends and makes an eloquent case for why their shouldn't be a death penalty in this country at all.

A completely different account of the bombing is reported here and it will blow your mind. I believe most of it to be the truth , but I still have a hard time fully grasping it all and it has not fully sunken in .If this is all true the implications are amazing, beyond the scope of what most of us can imagine and is NOTHING like the official story.
Supposedly all this came from McVeigh in a deal worked out with the authors that they would not publish it until after the "official" version of his life and death{American Terrorist} that he wanted out there hit the stands and therefore after he was executed.
I feel that we need to hear what the 2 authors of this book have to say.
I am guessing that not many people outside of folks who have a hard core interest in Tim/the bombing or victim's families will pay much attention to this book because it was written by 2 death row inmates and people have a prejudice against taking inmates seriously. But ask yourself-what really do 2 guys on death row have to gain from this other than getting out what they feel to be the truth? Guys on death row keep little if any money from something like this because of laws that stop them from doing so. And since the book hasn't gotten much attention that I've seen,fame wouldn't be the motivation either.
Finally, this book took almost 3 years to write and the authors claim hats because it took that long to verify Tim's claims from outside independent sources and they were able to substantiate 95% of the information Tim gave them.In closing if you ever wondered about the official story of the bombing or Tim as a real person, not the villainous caricature you saw on TV, then you owe it to yourself to read this book.

The book repeats itself somewhat. It doesn't delve deep enough into this man's pathology. There is more to this terrorist than meets the eye; but I think the would will never know why a soldier would turn upon his country's children & other innocent human beings.
I was looking for the man's reasoning; twisted or not. His actions are too far astray from WHO he WAS for them to be dismissed with a simplistic dialog.

This book was written by a man who befriended Timothy McVeigh in prison. He recorded McVeigh's remarks about bombing the Federal Building. These remarks are more telling than the author of the book seems to recognize . The author focuses on prison routines and the furor over the death penalty, but what he records "in passing" sheds light on the way Timothy McVeigh, an American patriot, was tricked into committing a crime that betrayed his own ideals.

After receiving a Bronze Star in the first Gulf War, Timothy was selected for Black Ops and told to go underground to infiltrate the "terrorist" grassroots militias. Timothy was ordered to bomb the Federal Building by his undercover control -- the "Major" (see p 150); Timothy did not know that children were in the building; nor did he suspect that he was being set up to be the patsy for the bombing. McVeigh did not know that his Major had placed another, more deadly bomb inside the Federal Building. Timothy and his bomb were set up to be caught, while the Major's accomplices escaped.

Timothy trusted the Major . . . despite having seen this Major order a Hispanic named "Roberto" to slit the throat of the man who had helped Timothy build the bomb -- right in front of Timothy's eyes!! The Major justified the murder to Tim by saying that the dead man was "hired" and was "not one of us" (see pp 181-182). In fact, this murder eliminated the man who could identify the Major and corroborate Timothy's version of events, should Timothy be caught and "talk." (But Timothy never did talk... he remained loyal to his task and to his Major.)

Timothy believed he had done his patriotic duty by following the Major's orders. It didn't occur to Timothy that his Major had betrayed him. It didn't occur to Timothy that the Major's motives were different than the motives given Timothy. While in prison, Timothy did everything he could to hasten his execution by lethal injection, because his handler, the "Major," had promised him a miraculous rescue -- a phony injection and escape. . . Mission Impossible-style.

But the "Major" did not rescue Timothy. Timothy was executed, because dead men tell no tales. The dead Timothy could not link the bombing to the Major or the Major's chain of command. The blame for the bombing stayed on Timothy's alleged affiliations -- on the "baby-killing," grassroots militias and on the need to repeal the Second Amendment to disarm these militias....(so that only the Major and His Ilk have guns).

The Central Banking Oligarchy which rules the US, Europe, Russia, China and most of the globe uses its propaganda arm, the Lying Mainstream Media, to concoct false villains and false narratives in "made-for-tv" dramas that further the Oligarchy's goal of total control. Other shooter-stories made for TV viewing have been:

OJ Simpson Trial, Ted Bundy, the Zodiac killer, Ramirez, Charlie Manson, David Berkowitz, Sandy Hook's Adam Lanza, the Aurora "Theater" shooting starring James Holmes, Gabby Gilbert's awkward performance upon being shot in the head by her fellow Jew and email-buddy, Jared Loughner, the Columbine Shooting, the Chechen "Dzoker" Tsarnaev ("Joker", get it?) of the Faked Boston Marathon bombing.

The serial made-for-tv dramas of both real and phony shootings is intended to pound one message into the Goyim's Collective Head -- "You Goyim won't be safe until you let your dual-citizen-controlled US Government take your guns away" -- especially the guns of the increasingly restive and suspicious "waco" grassroots militias.

Currently (2015) the Dual-Citizen-Controlled Mainstream Media are reviving the race-baiting tales of the 1960s by urging Blacks to snatch the "bad" Confederate flag; which in turn, incites Whites to attack Blacks. The Propagandists are showing stories featuring Black vs White shootings, from the "scripted" Trayvon Martin Trial to the "scripted" Dylann Roof Trial.

Read "The Conspiracy of the Six-Pointed Star"; Codex Magica; Mysterious Monuments" by Texe Marrs; "Judaism Discovered" by Michael Hoffman; "Truth is a Lonely Warrior" by James Perloff; "The Synagogue of Satan" by Andrew Carrington Hitchcock..

Important book to keep around for reference in the ongoing saga of the Murray Bldg bombing. New revelations every day about more government people (ours) being involved. May we be spared from hearing another official "lone criminal" theory repeated every anniversary for the next 50 years.

To get to the "meat" of the story, you must lumber through the first half of this book. Once there, the read is fast and furious. A great story - because the media loves to spin and spit out, then forget stories. Draw your own conclusions after reading this book.

Interesting to read about the Death Row experience for the inmates of the Terra Haute Federal Penitenary, but it wasn't particularly illuminating about Timothy McVeigh.

To those who have studied the story of the Oklahoma City bombing this book answers at least a couple of key questions.

The authors use the majority of the book to tell their own stories and are using McVeigh, along with the victims of the OKC Bombing to make a name for themselves. They say that 95% of the book has been verified, and as a Historian working on this subject I can put that rumor to rest right now. They sensationalize McVeigh and try to make him appear humane; when the truth of the matter is bombed a federal building killing 168 people, including 19 children, and injured more than 500. Humane?? I believe not, especially considering if you have read his AUTHORIZED bibliography American Terrorist by Lou Michel and Dan Herbeck which gives a much more accurate portrayal of who this monster really was.
