Did Obama Forget OKC Bombing Anniversary?

The Obama administration is coming under fire from Republicans and some Democrats after they apparently forgot to release a statement marking the 17th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

“The White House should know better,” Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) told Fox News. “That is a significant national event. It’s a little perplexing why the president and the White House would recognize other things on that day but would fail to recognize and remember a very significant event that happened in a federal building in 1995.”

The bomb blast killed 168 people including 19 children. Timothy McVeigh was convicted and executed for the attack. His conspirator Terry Nichols was sentenced to life in prison.
