  Oklahoma City bombing

The Oklahoma City bombing occurred on April 19, 1995 when American militia movement sympathizer Timothy McVeigh, with the assistance of Terry Nichols, destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.It was the most significant act of terrorism on American soil until the September 11 attacks in 2001, claiming the lives of 168 victims and injuring more than 680.The blast destroyed or damaged 324 buildings within a sixteen–block radius, destroyed or burned 86 cars, and shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings. The bomb was estimated to have caused at least $652 million worth of damage.

My job: Containment and clean up. Tag McVeigh and Nichols with darts (what was in them, I don’t know).

What they didn’t tell you:

The cult elements- Symbols tattooed on McVeigh and Nichols and the odd writings that were found with them – at first I thought they were Arabic but that didn’t look right either. And the fact that McVeigh and Nichols are were certifiably insane. McVeigh and Nichols repeatedly stated that “gray men” told them what to do inside their heads – that never made it into the records. They didn’t tell you that they were drugged for their ‘trials’ either.
