Angry white men?

One spring day in 1995 American terrorist Timothy McVeigh drove a pickup truck filled with explosives under the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people. This chilling documentary chronicles his life and ideological background, both of which resonate uncomfortably with the European political climate of today and our own national trauma of recent years. How can ideology alone build up so much hatred and what gives a young man the urge to kill 168 people?
