On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh detonated a truck full of ammonium nitrate, nitromethane, and diesel fuel in front of the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. When it happened it was the worst terrorist act ever committed on American soil and one that cost the lives of 168 people and injured 680 more.

But like 9/11, there were multiple problems with the ‘official story’. One problem was that the truck bomb alone couldn’t have created the amount of damage that occurred that morning. According to an unofficial report prepared by Brigadier General Benton K. Partin, there had to have been other bombs planted in the building.

In addition the Alfred P. Murrah Building was deemed a Level 4 building. (A Level 5 building is a maximum security building.) Witnesses reported heard multiple bombs go off and undetonated bombs were later found inside the building. So how did McVeigh plant additional bombs inside a secure Federal building that housed the Social Security Administration, FBI, DEA, BATF, and offices for both the Army and Marine Corps?

As with 9/11, one has to look for a political motive behind the bombing. America’s ruling elite needed to defuse the growing anti-government movement in the country after Waco and Ruby Ridge. They needed a horrific event linked to someone who looked like those in the militia movement: namely white working class males. Timothy McVeigh fit the bill. Like Osama Bin Laden, McVeigh became the personification of evil in the media. A man who was willing to murder women, men and children in cold blood. And by implication, so was every member of the militia movement.

But the question to ask is who benefited from the Oklahoma City bombing? Was it the militia movement or was it the Federal Government with the further expansion of its power?
