Book has some correspondences between Vidal and American terrorist Timothy McVeigh, who considered himself a true patriot. Vidal presents facts, conjecture, and expert testimony that McVeigh might've been working with larger militia groups in the Patriot movement or with a US Gov't sponsored black bag special forces team. Also touches on the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the failings of the US Media/Industrial complex.

Interesting reading if you're interested in such things. Blood and Oil was a far superior collection of Vidal's essays, though.

Short antiwar book with the subtitle, How We Got To Be So Hated. Early opponent to the Bush war in Iraq.
