Beyond the Bombing:
Oklahoma


To date the most visible militia in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Citizens Militia operates in Eufaula, southeast of Tulsa, under the leadership of denture maker Ross Hullett. Hullett has condemned the April 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, stating, "Christians don't do this to people." But Oklahoma militia members also share the characteristic, paradoxical "patriotism" of the broader movement. "I would lay down my life for my country," member John Harrell told The Wall Street Journal, "but I wouldn't spit on a congressman if he were burning to death. "
