It is alleged in Count One that, beginning on or about September 13, 1994, and continuing until on or about April 19, 1995, at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and elsewhere, defendant, Timothy James McVeigh, intentionally and willfully conspired with Terry Lynn Nichols, and with others unknown, to use a weapon of mass destruction, namely an explosive bomb placed in a truck (a "truck bomb") against persons within the United States and against property that was owned and used by the United States and by a department and agency of the United States, namely, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building at 200 N.W. 5th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and that the object of the conspiracy was to kill and injure innocent persons and to damage property of the United States.

NATIONAL MISSILE DEFENSE (NMD) SYSTEM WOULD LIMIT THE "USE" OF WMD

"The test successfully demonstrated "hit to kill technology" to intercept and destroy the ballistic missile target. An exoatmospheric kill vehicle weighing about 120 pounds, equipped with two infrared sensors, a visible sensor, and a small propulsion system, located and tracked the target, guiding the kill vehicle to a body-to-body impact with the target and resulting in the target destruction using only the kinetic energy of the collision. This "hit to kill' intercept demonstrates that a warhead carrying a weapon of mass destruction-nuclear, chemical or biological - will be totally destroyed and neutralized."
