McVeigh's lawyer in plea for life sentence
Saturday 07 June 1997
Mr Burr said he would offer two realities in addition to the horrific reality of the bombing. The first reality would be the life of McVeigh, a good soldier who took extra duty to help his colleagues. The second was "the reality of what McVeigh believed happened at Waco." McVeigh turned to far-right videotapes and to publications to learn more about what happened in the siege, and concluded that the government committed murder. "The right response is a life sentence," he said.
