There are individuals that are crazy enough to die for what they believe in. This man was not rich and did not have a lot of connections.

He wrote out in detail his escape, rehearsed his route to and from, and any issues that may have occurred during the actual event, such as a flat tire.

McVeigh drove to the building, parked, got out, locked the door, and casually walked away and headed towards his getaway car that was located behind another building. At exactly 9:02 a.m., the bomb detonated. Within a moments time the area was tore apart. Some would say that it resembled a war zone. The front of the building had been reduced to nothing but rumble and broken down concreate, with countless floors crushed like flat bread. There were cars that were burnt, charred and destroyed. About 300 or more building and home in the initial area were either damaged or destroyed. The death toll was more than anyone could handle. Still devastating, 168 individuals including 19 children and a volunteer nurse were among the fatalities.
