Inside the FBI Podcast Trailer: The Oklahoma City Bombing: 25 Years Later
Twenty-five years after the deadly bombing that took the lives of 168 people, retired Special Agent Barry Black provides a firsthand account of investigating the Oklahoma City case.
Barry Black: I'm Barry Black. I'm a retired master bomb technician with the FBI. I retired after a little over 31 years in the Bureau.
This was really the first bombing case I worked. So I arrived on scene. I got as close as I could without getting into the debris field and started doing what we're trained to do which, is an initial assessment to try to determine if it was a bombing or in fact a plane crash. And of course the large crater and the debris field are immediate indications.
This is absolutely a group effort. I was doing my small part like every everyone else.
We've taken the lessons learned from these unfortunate events to ensure that our response is more rapid in the field.
