Barbelith: Timothy McVeigh's letter to

Barbelith: Timothy McVeigh’s letter to Fox: “You may or may not have ethics or beliefs that match up with this man’s. Mine do not match his particularly closely. Having said that, if I believed what he did, and could express myself as clearly as he can, and honestly believed that the FBI was an affront to the freedom of America’s citizenry – well wouldn’t his actions then be justified? If he believes himself to be at war, then isn’t it appropriate to fight that war? So that’s the question – how do we tell whether someone’s ethics are acceptable? And the actions that they take? Where do we draw the line? If I see a people oppressed, is it my job to fight for them, tooth and claw, whether they be in Bosnia, or unknowingly oppressed in the US?”
