Looks interesting. I've always wondered why Hussain al-Hussaini (John Doe #2) was swept under the rug. Of course, if this book is going to deal with unanswered questions about the OKC bombing, they need to touch on a few: The two unexploded bombs that were found inside the building and defused by police. The statements from some ATF agents and other officials who worked there, that they were given warnings to be out of the building that morning. The seismographic evidence that showed explosions prior to the truck bomb explosion. The witnesses who heard multiple explosions.
I think logic would dictate, with the bad press over Iraq, that if Iraq really was behind WTC '93, OKC and WTC '01 they would be waving it in our faces daily to trumpet the war effort. They tried, by mentioning 9/11 and Iraq in the same sentence for months, to affect the Pavlovian conditioning of the two. Ultimately though, Bush and Rumsfeld both have stated Iraq had no hand in 9/11.
