Apparently a false flag operation was necessary to scare the militias of the country into disbanding or being discredited and harassed. Worked pretty well, too.
I think McVeigh did what he was paid to do. He had always been a good soldier and an expert sniper who loved his country. Why would that change? Disgruntled by Waco events? Who wasn't? I don't think it was enough to turn him into an assasin of random targets.
McVeigh's lawyer wrote a fairly interesting book in which he flat out says that he can't tell the public too much and, in fact, much of the evidence and testimony was suppressed in the trial but that we are being lied to.
What inflames me about the OKC bombing is that my daughter was scheduled to go on a field trip downtown that day but that the bus had a flat tire before they got there. She would have been less than 1 block away at the time the bomb went off!
The people in charge don't care who they kill but what gives me hope is the fact that they lie so often can only mean that the truth scares them to death. If TPTB were completely in charge, there'd be no need to lie.

Also whats the deal with the OP throwing Columbine in there? is there a conspiracy behind that? I thought that one was fairly cut and dry.

That's not true at all. Timothy McVeigh acted on his own feelings to attack the government after he was wrongfully abused in the military. Open a book rather than a web page sometime. It'll do you some good.

Read the book by Stephan Jones, Others Unknown: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing. Then read some reliable news sources of the time. Not revisionist history from today's internet. Then you can have some good conclusions of your own.
I was working at Fort Riley when the bombing occurred. I heard tons of scuttlebutt at Fort Riley of which some was later confirmed but not acted on.
All in all, this is an interesting case. But it is now history and life goes on.
So, what's the point?
