This information has been suppressed ever since her book came out and claimed there was a muslim connection to the Oklahoma bombing....

Always wondered why McVeigh was killed so fast by those who HATE capital punishment. Most sit on death row for decades. Made no sense.

Yep. That sent up a big red flag for me. There had to be a lot more to this story.

I believe that you're asking the wrong question. The accurate question is why did McVeigh waive his right to additional appeals and request that the sentence be carried out.

McVeigh had an aggressive defense team during his trial and after conviction through the appeals process. If the typical appeals actions had been followed, he probably would have been on death row for 10 years or more. However, this was short circuited when McVeigh told the appeals court that he wanted to waive further appeals and have the sentence executed. I do not recall any mentions of this wavier being anything other than McVeigh's free will. Have there been any I missed?
