On May 16, 2001, Timothy McVeigh will die by lethal injection in
Terra Haute, Indiana, which is being embarrassed by legions of
people who are coming to just be there and buy the new reality
TV merchandise ... souvenir tee shirts and whatever else happens
to be for sale.
The problem with McVeigh's death is not that he is
undeserving, but that he did not operate alone. He dies
The further problem is that the execution is supposed to put
a finality to the Oklahoma City bombing tragedy, but it leaves
as many unanswered questions as the Waco disaster of April 19,
1993, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
This is not just opinion on my part. I would like to
refer the readers to Jon
Dougherty's column in WorldNetDaily.
Mr. Dougherty is an experienced reporter, journalist and
investigator. I have read much of his work and find him
very credible. Further, his work only corroborates the
reports issued several years ago by Chuck Missler of Koinonia
House in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Mr. Missler is a graduate
of the U.S. Naval Academy, former CEO of Western Digital, a
long-time Bible teacher and a computer expert with intelligence
and governmental contacts and news sources in various places
around the world. Mr. Missler reported on the mysteries
surrounding the crash of the plane that killed Ron Brown long
before any other media source followed suit.
I believe Timothy McVeigh is to Oklahoma City what Lee Harvey
Oswald was to the JFK assassination ... a pawn used in the
overall scheme. Lee Harvey Oswald died from a bullet wound
inflicted by the late Jack Ruby. Mr. McVeigh will die at
the hands of the federal government, the very government that
incinerated men, women and children at Waco (lest we forget
Janet Reno's and Bill Clinton's trail of death and
The convenient way for our government to bring
"closure" to the grieving hearts and the outraged
public is to create a scene of finality that will appease the
That doesn't mean that justice has been done. Hanging
one out of three killers is not justice, and shielding all the
guilty by killing one is not justice. It is partial
justice but more than that, it is a form of pacifying the
public, and that is a type of deceit if full justice is never
The facts about Waco have brought into question the
complicity of the federal government and the Department of
Justice in particular. The media has simply let it drop
from public consciousness.
The Elian Gonzalez matter (and the famous photograph) are
also forgotten, although in that pre-dawn raid no one was
killed. For that we can be grateful, but it doesn't mean
that justice was done.
As to Oklahoma City, the article by Jon Dougherty links to
another site well worth considering, in view of the fact that
there are many unanswered questions about the truck involved, as
well as the number of explosions. (Most of us still
believe there were at least two bullets fired in the JFK
The execution of Timothy McVeigh may bring new reality, shock
and exploitation to television if allowed to be used as a
pay-per-view extravaganza of death. It may make some bucks
for the hawkers in Terra Haute. It will end McVeigh's
But when all the facts aren't known, and many seem to be
covered up, is McVeigh's execution justice, or governmental
"closure" in the form of pacification of public
History will have to sit in judgment upon this nation's acts
and deeds as to whether justice was rendered. I do not
believe it has been rendered in full.
Since God knows, I must leave the final judgment to Him.
That is the most certain judgment of all, one that too few fear
