About the Author
Jayna Davis has worked in broadcast news since 1986, reporting in Texas, California, and Oklahoma. Between 1993 and 1997, she worked at KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City as an investigative reporter and, as such, covered the OKC bombing story from the first moments. In 2001 she founded Journalists' Committee for Justice, a nonprofit organization that has carried on the OKC investigation. She has received many awards over the years, including "Best Investigative Report" in 1994 from Associated Press and again, in 1995, from Oklahoma Association of Broadcasting. And her rigorous investigative work has garnered her appearances on a number of shows including interviews with Bill O'Reilly, Greta van Susteren, John Gibson, Fox News Live, and Lou Dobbs. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

would stand up in a court of law. McVeigh, Nichols, and OTHERS KNOWN but not prosecuted. Another problem with politicizing the FBI, which
"ignored" or "lost" evidence and witness statements. In 2011, Nichols admitted that "there were others unknown". That was all he said. He had
turned down an earlier chance at parole if he talked. He still fears for his life and relatives if he talks. Congress ignored findings leading to others unknown.
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!
Mrs. Davis thoroughly researched her allegations and ideas before writing this book and bases much of it on witness affidavits rather than speculation or anecdotal evidence. After seeing the amount of research and work put into this story before its publication and enjoying the background research, I am compelled to believe that the OKC bombing was not an act of domestic terrorism, but rather an attack from radical Islamists that was carried out with its two "white lilies" in Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols that was sponsored by a state or a large terrorist organization. This book presents enough evidence to believe that OKC was a warning strike for what would happen more than 6 years later in NYC and DC and the incompetence or, to some extent, complete complicity of our domestic intelligence agencies has cost numerous American lives. It's unfathomable that with the kind of research Mrs. Davis claimed to have and presented to the FBI that no steps were taken to quash the terror cell in OKC and investigate connections to those nationwide.
While the book does not necessarily present an unimpeachable argument regarding the OKC bombing, it does present compelling evidence that will force the reader to reexamine the way they view this horrid event. The information is presented in a way that it is interesting and well-organized by the author and should be a must read not only for Oklahomans such as myself, but also for all Americans. If taken to be true, this book clearly shows that we should neither have believed nor should continue to believe that our government possesses the competency or willingness to protect us from harm, no matter how many oppressive measures such as the PATRIOT Act are taken into account.
