On February 27, 1995, I was an INS Special Agent, Anti-Smuggling Unit, U.S.B.P. Law enforcement agencies had recieved many intelligence alerts from the Task Force Force on Terrorism. The alert stated that Mid Eastern Terrorists were in the process of preparing attacks against the United States in Washington D.C. By March, 1995, alerts stated possible attacks on government buildings within the Central United States or the heartland.The intelligence information was gathered worldwide from many sources and countries including Iran and the Philippine Islands. As a law enforcement Agent, I followed the events of April 19, 1995 very closely from news coverage to the tearing down of the Murrah Federal Building less than two weeks after the Terrorist attack. Independant analysis or investigation of the building's materials were not permitted. Home grown terrorists who served in Iraq, U.S. Army were determined to be the only connection in the conspiracy which I find very hard to believe to this day. On February 26, 1993, the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was accomplished with a similar method of operation, a Rental Truck loaded with 1200 to 1500 pounds of fertilizer based, urea nitrate homemade explosives. The detonation killed six people and injured over a thousand. Mid East Connection: Muslim extremists Mohammed Salamek,Ajay, Abuhalima, Ayyad and mastermind Ramzi Yousef were arrested as conspirators. Though many years in law enforcement, I have seen outstanding investigative reporters, journalists arrive at facts and conclusions that are truthful and present the facts. Ms. Jayna Davis is one of that group that is a credit to her profession and this Nation. Coverups in politics have been around around as long as mankind has been on this earth. I highly recommend The Third Terrorist to anyone able to think in a politically correct society.

Portions of this will take longer to read due to the number of times you will have to stop and take measure of the loss of life (many of which were helpless babies) and how there are forces in the world that wish us harm. Yes, it is not the best written book out there dealing with terrorism but it is sometimes the content and not the style that wins out. For those who know these people, places and events first-hand it is insightful and sad. For those on the outside is was and is a warning of what could be. The awful part is not the book but the event. Please read this book and offer your own thoughts.

Jayna Davis has informed us of the most likely involvement of an Islamic state-sponsored terrorist in the Oklahoma City bombing. There was enough evidence to indict and probably convict the 'Third Terrorist'. One must wonder about the coincidence of his later working at Boston's Logan Airport. Neither law suits nor interference by her former employer could prevent her from telling this important story. Her courage and persistence in the face of the FBI's refusal to do their job exemplifies the highest standards of journalism and citizenship. A novelist or film-maker could not have made up a better story than this true story of courage with her refusal to give in to the seeming futility of getting her messsage heard by the right people. I agree with former CIA Director Woolsey that the American people owe MS Davis a debt of gratitude.

Jayna Davis writes a compeling, incredibly well researched account of the Oklahoma City terrorist attack. Her agonizing experience and that of Special Agent Vogel are compeling and inspiring.

I was thoroughly entertained by this tragic, yet brutally honest picture of reporter Jayna Davis's account of what happened in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing. Why the FBI refused to acknowledge the multiple valid eyewitness accounts of specific, positively identified Middle-Eastern men associated with convicted bomber Timothy Mc Veigh is beyond me. Somebody's head should roll.

Most important story of the last 25 years. The 9-year investigation of Jayna Davis has been endorsed by former CIA Director R. James Woolsey and is indeed a page-turner.

This meticulously documented book should be required reading for every American. I was a skeptic when I first heard Jayna Davis's startling assertion that Iraqis assisted the Oklahoma City bombers. But after reading the mountain of evidence which is laid out in a riveting, page-turning format, I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt the U.S. government failed in its duty to bring all to justice in this horrendous crime.

I know what you're thinking: 'Another book by a conspiracy nut.' Not so Sherlock. The Third Terrorist, written over a period of almost a decade, enjoys three hundred thirteen pages of eye-squinting tiny font, trailed by thirty-five pages of footnotes and five index pages, permitting author Jayna Davis sufficient territory to make her point, and that is that Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols did not operate in a vacuum. Thankfully, the over seven hundred footnotes have no corresponding reference numbers in the text. This author's consideration allows the reader to peruse them at her leisure. On April 20th 1995, the day after the Oklahoma bombing, who does not remember the frantic search for the Middle Eastern appearing John Doe #2? And who does not also recall the odd way in which this suspected suspect immediately faded from the sights of the FBI and the glare of the major news media? If you're like me, you were probably and purposely led to believe that the huge fertilizer-bomb used in the Oklahoma explosion was a contraption anyone could engineer. In actuality, these types of devices are not something any military surplus groupie could cobble together behind a bowling alley. The author claims the Oklahoma City Bombing as being sponsored by a Middle-Eastern government. However, I believe her tie to Saddam Hussein being behind it is tenuous. But the link is so slim, precisely because, as documented in page after page in the book, the FBI would not cooperate with Ms.Davis and was often enough, by leaking half-truths, virtually working against the flow of her investigation. The reason given that the FBI refused to accept the author's voluminous evidence proposing the Middle East connection, the physical person of John Doe #2 (a former Iraqi intelligence officer under Hussein) and twenty-three eye-witness accounts, is that her documents would have complicated their slam dunk case against Timothy McVeigh. I realize that today, in February of 2007, her accusation sounds incredible, but as we now know, in 1995 'avoiding complications' was the modus operandi of the Bill and Hillary regime. Recall that during those times the Clinton Administration was busily defending itself on numerous complicated domestic fronts. From the murder of Vince Foster and the oddly coincidental passing of forty-eight Clinton colleagues (from Buddy the dog to Ron Brown) to the death of presidential spermatozoa on a blue dress and threatened impeachment by the House of Representatives. Finally, facing a certain death sentence, why wouldn't the Twentieth Century's second most famous 'patsy' (the first being Lee Harvey Oswald), Timothy McVeigh, confess to the intimate involvement of Middle Eastern terrorists? For that, you'll have to read Fox News show host John Gibson's explanation on page three hundred ten.

Jayna Davis is a good reporter, but this is an awful book. She ruins her case with extraneous, irrelevant information and purple prose consistent with the the worst of the writing in 19th Century romance novels.
