Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh executed by lethal injection

Gulf War veteran, Timothy McVeigh, bombed on the second anniversary of the Waco Siege, which he himself had witnessed. His bombing was revenge against a federal government that he believed had allowed the deaths at Waco of 76 people, 27 of whom were children. McVeigh’s bomb killed 168 people, 19 of whom were children. He had asked for his death to be broadcast live on television but this request was denied.
