(Oklahoma City: Peter Jennings) Report introduced.

(No location given: Bill Blakemore) The lessons of the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, bombing examined: the initial prejudicial blame of Arabs and Moslems and the revelation of the depth of fervor by anti-government militias that believed in the novel "Turner Diaries" and were enraged by the government actions at Waco. [Arabic-looking man who was stopped by police, Abraham AHMAD - says the event made us unwelcome in the US.] [Timothy McVeigh's sister Jennifer McVEIGH - says Tim read the book.]

(Oklahoma City: Peter Jennings) The site where the federal building stood and the memorabilia left on the fence shown. [MOTHER - comments.]
