In never-before-aired tapes, McVeigh tells families: 'Get over it
'

Tue Apr 20, 12:17 pm ET

Timothy McVeigh, executed in 2001 for the Oklahoma City terrorist bombing that killed 168 people, coldly declined to express remorse for his actions in a set of interview tapes aired for the first time Monday night on MSNBC.

The killer's message to the families of his victims was detached, clinical. "Death and loss are an integral part of life everywhere," he told Lou Michel, a Buffalo News reporter who taped 45 hours of interviews with McVeigh for a book he wrote with newspaper colleague Dan Herbeck. "These people in Oklahoma City that lost loved ones, I'm sorry. But you know what? You have to accept it and move on." Addressing the families directly, McVeigh said: "You're not the first grandparent to lose a granddaughter or a grandson. I'll use the phrase and it sounds cold, but I'm sorry, I'm going to use it, because it's the truth get over it."

5. Ah Tim, you missed your calling
Should have been a grief counselor. Instead, you grew up to be an asshole.
