Yesterday, opening arguments began in the trial of Terry Nichols. Step by step, frame by frame, prosecutors led jurors up to the day of the Oklahoma City bombing, calling it the successful end of a plot concocted largely by Terry Nichols. Today, we are going to take a journey from Oklahoma City to Germany and Italy, a circuitous route, but an interesting tour through fascism and militarism in Europe and the U.S.
