Book Description

December 2001
The Final Report is the most thorough reference work on the first terrorist attack ever on American soil, the Oklahoma City Bombing. It is a window into the dark recesses of corruption and government criminality and abuse that have become all too common features of everyday life. It is jam packed with important court documents, trial transcripts, affidavits, expert testimony, photographs and illustrations (including 50 full color evidentiary plates), suspect sketches, FBI and ATF documents, and eyewitnesses statements. It covers all phases of the bombing from the Preliminary Hearing in which the Federal Government submitted its' evidence of other John Doe's who accompanied Timothy McVeigh to the involvement of Middle Eastern terrorists. It is fully indexed and includes an appendix of over 150 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read, and weep Oct. 15 2002
Format:Paperback
This 556-page volume raises extremely important questions about the first major terrorist attack on U.S. shores, which was unfortunately not the last.
In hindsight, some observers wonder whether the devastating 1995 attack was both precursor and connected to the Sept. 11, 2002 attacks on New York and Washington which took more than 3,000 lives.
This research--conducted by the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee, and funded by private citizens--raises many unsettling questions.
For starters it provides clear evidence that U.S. Federal authorities never found all of the perpetrators of the Oklahoma City attack, that they did not pursue every lead, and that they did not utilize all available physical evidence. Substantial evidence surfaced that dozens of crucial eyewitnesses were neither interviewed nor called at federal trials.
In October 1995, Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key petitioned the District Court of Oklahoma County for a Grand jury to be formed to investigate the bombing. His petition was denied in February 1997.
Nevertheless, an FBI agent swore in an affidavit included in this volume that Abraham Abdallah Ahmed, a Jordanian-born naturalized U.S. citizen detained by American Airlines security personnel in Chicago on April 19, 1995 met the description of one of the male suspects seen running from the scene of the bombing. Ahmed flew from Oklahoma City to Chicago after the bombing. The FBI man further swore that Ahmed's luggage, which continued to Rome, contained several car radios, substantial amounts of shielded and unshielded wire, a small tool kit and other tools. While these could be used for everyday work, they were also "consistent with use" for "explosive devices." Ahmed was requested to appear before a Grand Jury, but had fled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good! Everyone should read this. Feb. 1 2002
By T. M. Wilkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you want to know the truth about the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, this is the source. The author was one of the eminently qualified people who pursued the study of the bombing and produced this book. It is well researched, well written, and quotes research by many extremely well qualified individuals, including several eyewitnesses and victims of the bombing. The only qualification I would add is that it comprises 364 pages of fine print, with an additional 184 pages of pictures and supporting documentation.
You have not read the complete story until you've read this. The "official version" is nothing like this.

This 556-page volume raises extremely important questions about the first major terrorist attack on U.S. shores, which was unfortunately not the last.

In hindsight, some observers wonder whether the devastating 1995 attack was both precursor and connected to the Sept. 11, 2002 attacks on New York and Washington which took more than 3,000 lives.

This research --- conducted by the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee, and funded by private citizens and not to be confused with another government-produced book of the same name--- raises many unsettling questions.

For starters it provides clear evidence that U.S. Federal authorities never found all of the perpetrators of the Oklahoma City attack, that they did not pursue every lead, and that they did not utilize all available physical evidence. Substantial evidence surfaced that dozens of crucial eyewitnesses were neither interviewed nor called at federal trials.

In October 1995, Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key petitioned the District Court of Oklahoma County for a Grand jury to be formed to investigate the bombing. His petition was denied in February 1997.

Nevertheless, an FBI agent swore in an affidavit included in this volume that Abraham Abdallah Ahmed, a Jordanian-born naturalized U.S. citizen detained by American Airlines security personnel in Chicago on April 19, 1995 met the description of one of the male suspects seen running from the scene of the bombing. Ahmed flew from Oklahoma City to Chicago after the bombing. The FBI man further swore that Ahmed's luggage, which continued to Rome, contained several car radios, substantial amounts of shielded and unshielded wire, a small tool kit and other tools. While these could be used for everyday work, they were also "consistent with use" for "explosive devices." Ahmed was requested to appear before a Grand Jury, but had fled.

The Grand Jury indicted Timothy McVeigh, along with "others unknown." Composites of two "others," each called "John Doe," are shown here. They were never found.

In addition, actual evidence from terrorist attacks in Columbia in 1989, Saudi Arabia and Lima Peru in 1996 proved that a car bomb alone could not destroy reinforced concrete supports like those in the Alfred P. Murrah building. Chemical and electrical engineers, physicists and a U.S. Brigadier General all concurred that the damage to the Murrah Building on April 19, 1995 could not be ascribed to a single truck bomb containing 4,800 pounds of ammonium nitrate fuel oil.

A former military man at the scene on April 19 to search for victims witnessed fire department teams removing two devices that were placed in bomb disposal units. These were described as "military olive drab in color," the size of "round, five-gallon drums, with black lettering designating the contents as fulminated mercury," a high grade explosive. He saw mercury switches on devices which he recognized as detonators.

Had complete work been done in 1995, might 2001 have been prevented?

Read this book, and weep for the victims of both heinous attacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throughly investigated! Great job!!! Nov. 23 2001
By Jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rep Charles Key really steps up to the plate while investigating the controversial Oklahoma City Bombing. He throughly looks at all aspects and possibilities as to how the bombing could have taken place. He has many official documents to back up all of the text in the book. It is a thorough look at OKC through the eyes of a group of individuals who just want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. They did this for the victims and I think they did a wonderful job. Great job Charles!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed up content... Oct. 14 2010
By W.R.Schillings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An important book because of the unbiased and neutral explanations provided for the motives behind the bombing. Also, very informative regarding the politically motivated elimination of testimony and evidence that the investigating authorities, with the help of the courts, withheld from the public and the juries. Only thing better than this book would have been an opportunity for the bombers to be publicly interviewed regarding the political conditions that incited them to their crimes.

Much of the detailed content could have been dealt with in footnotes and bibliography. The textual content concentrating on overall events would then have been much easier to read and assimilate.
