Oklahoma City Bombing

It was a domestic terrorist attack on a federal building in Oaklamohoma City. It killed 168 people and injured 680 people. 280 surrounding buiding were dammaged. It was a huge explosion and was the worst terrorost attack untill September 11, 2001. It was a very bad attack. He said it was revenge for what the US government did to ruby at waco to Ruby Ridge. He was trying to take out the government building to get even. He was crazy in my opinion. He did make his point however to get even. He was so crazy. It caused america to crack down on terrorism but did not have a good effect because 5 years later September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks happened. By: Clayton Johnson
