168 people died on 19th April 1995 when Timothy McVeigh bombed Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.
This was one of the most deadly domestic terrorism acts in the history of the United States of America.
Timothy McVeigh was a soldier who turned into a White supremacist and ended up committing an act of terror that claimed 168 innocent people including young children.
FBI will never forget the heinous act, they were not able to stop the crime compromising lives despite many leads.
However, counterterrorism measures were since then put in place by the FBI and today, the security threat by a terrorist is down.
Timothy McVeigh committed the crime out of anger described as a growing anti-US government feeling.
Such homegrown threats are now quashed since President Clinton ratified an anti terror legislation.
This legislation is policy that seeks to deter, defeat, and respond vigorously to all terrorist attacks on our territory and against our citizens.
The memory of those horrifying moments when an American citizen turned on his own people killing hundreds is fresh to the family and particularly the FBI.
Recently the arrest of another former soldier as Tim McVeigh, Kevin William Harpham, a bomb maker is worrying and 16 years later, staying safe than sorry is a policy FBI wants to hold onto.
