Yeah I wouldn't either but the official story of OKC makes no sense, even if you wanted to send a message to the Fed why would a patriot take the lives of children and innocent people? How in the fuck could that make people sympathetic to the cause? It can't, it only aided the Fed in cracking down on militias and passing more laws. So yeah the supposed actions of Timothy just make no sense.
And yeah long before OKC I was thinking taking out Federal buildings would be one way to send a message, but if he actually did it on his own he should have picked a specific un-named target in Langley Virginia. There are no innocent people there.
