Oklahoma City memorial

With the profiling that is often associated with the “War on Terrorism,” often lost is the fact that many American-based, non-Arab, non-Muslim political networks qualify under any governmental definition as “terrorist.” Among the most lethal, high profile acts of this kind took place in Oklahoma City. When some good friends visited Ok.C. they got us this piece as a reminder of the horrific event and the lives lost, but also as a reminder that terrorism must be conceptualized and combated in very careful, sensitive and non-stereotypical ways particularly keeping in mind the Ok.C. bombing was committed by a U.S. military veteran who identified as white and Christian.
