Father Still Can't Grasp Why

Bill McVeigh still can't grasp why his son did it

Bill McVeigh says he still has no idea why his son felt driven to attack the US government. He tells the Buffalo News he often thinks about the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and feels deep sympathy for them and their families.

Timothy McVeigh was executed for blowing up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The truck bombing ten years ago today killed 168 people and wounded hundreds more.

Bill McVeigh says he'll try to treat the anniversary as if it were just another day, sticking to his routine and "doing the same old stuff."

The 65-year-old lives in Pendleton, New York, about ten miles north of Buffalo.
