McVeigh Used 2 Tons Of Ammonium Nitrate To Blow Up OK Federal Building

Supposedly there was 2,750 Tons being held in storage in Beirut for the last 7 years, since it was confiscated from a ship.

Surely the death toll is going to easily reach the 4 figures.

5. It Knocked The Person Down

Right after the blast, we see ground, sky, ground.
That seems like someone getting knocked off their feet.
And that shot looked to be from blocks away.

3. Neglect bordering on mass murder.

They knew what they had and how volatile it was.

4. 1947 Texas City disaster 2,200 tons.

The Texas City disaster was an industrial accident that occurred on April 16, 1947, in the Port of Texas City, Texas, at Galveston Bay. It was the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history, and one of history's largest non-nuclear explosions. A mid-morning fire started on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp (docked in the port), and detonated her cargo of about 2,200 tons (about 2,100 metric tons) of ammonium nitrate.[1] This started a chain reaction of fires and explosions in other ships and nearby oil-storage facilities, ultimately killing at least 581 people, including all but one member of the Texas City fire department.[2]

The West, Texas explosion, that we're all familar with: 240 tons along with 50 tons of anhydrous ammonia

6. Check This Out

These disastrous events have occurred often enough that there's a Wikipedia page on them!
One stop shopping for AmNO explosions.

8. My granduncle was killed in the Great Halifax Explosion of Dec 1917.

He wasn't killed outright from the explosion, but from the explosive shock

9. FUCKING MORONS!!

King Dumbfuck just said that the people he's talking to, think it was an intentional act. The reporter had to confirm with him a 2nd time, as she could not believe his first response.

I hope tonight's new shows talk about that, because even I know what happened at this point. IT WAS NOT AN INTENTIONAL ATTACK, and it shows how stupid they are.
