The Oklahoma City Bombing And The Politics Of Terror

Introduction by Representative Charles Key

In January 1997, ABC 20/20 reported that the government had prior knowledge of the of the Oklahoma City bombing. In February, a Time magazine article reported that the ATF had advance warning from one of its own informants.

Shows how terrorist acts are used by the government to increase wiretapping, search and seizure, and invasive surveillance of private citizens.

The sheer volume of detailed evidence in this book about the U.S. government's unholy alliance with the terrorist underworld - and of a sting operation that led to the Oklahoma City bombing - will shock some people. At the same time, many readers will be relieved to finally hear the awful truth about the politics behind such acts of terror. Reporter David Hoffman spent two years investigating the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in which 169 people died in April, 1995. He carefully traces the government's case and discovers an amazing conspiracy and cover-up. His investigation leads to a number of revelations, including:

The evidence goes even deeper. Hoffman found information about the government's behind-the-scenes involvement in other terrorist acts, which must be explained in order to understand the context of federal involvement in Oklahoma City. Hoffman uncovered parallels to the explosion of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, and even to the World Trade Center bombing in New York, and reveals the connections between the three in this book.


It's no longer a secret. Federal agencies know far more about the Oklahoma City bombing than they're willing to admit.

Detailed evidence about the US Government's unholy alliance with the terrorist underworld--and of a sting operation that led to the Oklahoma City bombing--will no doubt shock many people. Reporter David Hoffman's definitive, two-year investigation leads to a number of revelations, including:

A web of connections linking Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols to a neo-Nazi operation and a Middle Eastern terrorist cell.

At least two federal informants told their government handlers about the bombing before it occurred--a fact proven by the government's own documents supplied in this book.

Testimony of explosives experts, military personnel, and retired federal agents indicates that the Oklahoma City bombing could not have been accomplished solely with a truck-bomb made of fertilizer.

Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key, the primary force behind a County Grand Jury formed to uncover vital aspects of the bombing concealed in the trials of McVeigh and Nichols provides the Foreword.

Hoffman's book goes even further than Oklahoma City, showing how the U.S. government transforms acts of "terrorism" into increase state power and intimidation.

"How the American people were betrayed by their own law enforcement agencies, either through gross ineptitude and/or corruption, would be lost to history were it not for David Hoffman's The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Politics of Terror. A truly incredible read." -- Michael Levine, the most highly decorated DEA agent in the history of the agency, and bestselling author of Deep Cover and The Big White Lie.
