The Biggest Trials Of The Past 20 Years That Still Have People Talking

Timothy McVeigh

He’s perhaps America’s most well known home-grown terrorist. Timothy McVeigh was one of the masterminds behind the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building which killed 168 people in 1995. He was hoping to inspire a revolt against the FBI and the federal government.

McVeigh was inspired to carry out the bombing because he felt like there was in an injustice done during the 1993 Waco Seige which saw 86 people killed, many of whom were children. For six years he was responsible for the deadliest attack on American soil. That ended after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.
