Before 9/11, there was Oklahoma City.
Fifteen years ago today, a native-born American committed an act of domestic terrorism. Timothy McVeigh, an Irish-American from Buffalo, N.Y., had served in the U.S. Army, where he had sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution and defend his country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Instead, after leaving his country's service, he attacked it. He blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 innocent men, women, and children.
