Yeah, I looked at a 9/11 title of theirs that I thought was promising, and I found it to be empty piffle deluged in a lot of scaremongering...when there's enough genuinely scary stuff in 9/11 issues Then I looked at the rest of their list and....

The following are worth the read, IMO. None to be taken as gospel truth, but rather as data sets worth evaluation.

I'll certainly go with Evica and Palamara.

I've read Haslam but in all this time he's produced no photo or further research on the "Dr. Judith Vary Baker" he claims was dogging him at Tulane in the late 1960s (sic?), when anyone who's worked at a college knows that colleges are obsessive about photographing and collecting press mentions of their visiting faculty. I agree that the death of Mary Sherman, an Ochsner associate, is highly suspicious. I wonder, however, at its connection with that old canard that "David Ferrie kept live mice in his apartment for cancer research," a tale that has never been fully researched, but is repeated by Haslam and the modern incarnation of Judith Vary Baker.

I'll keep an eye out for Chauncey Holt's book, but when I find it I'll be looking at it hard.

I'm told that many of Peter Levenda's books with Trine Day are incredible must-reads; three of them have pretty impeccable foreword authors, namely Dick Russell, Jim Hougan, and Norman Mailer. (I spoke to Hougan about it during a telephone interview on a tangential topic.)

My understanding is that Levenda is one of the few people out there with a deep working knowledge of the esoteric Christian groups --- like the David Ferrie-affiliated Old Roman and American Orthodox Catholic Churches, and the General Charles Willoughby-affiliated Shickshinny Knights of Malta (which did NOT start with any affiliation to the actual Knights of Malta) --- as well as some other fringe religious groups permeating the Deep Politics realm. Levenda's stuff on the post-WWII Nazi diaspora is also, I suspect, worthy of consideration.

(Glad you started this thread, David.)

Aberration in the Heartland of the Real: The Secret Lives of Timothy McVeigh by Wendy Painting


Based on many first-hand interviews with principle subjects.

There is a lot of information in this book about the Oklahoma City bombing.

McVeigh was no "patsy" and this book makes that very clear, the key question is "who were the others?" that were not apprehended. This book does not answer that question but it has some clues.
