Why? And when did Timothy McVeigh join the FBI?

And that's why my initial thought was that the perpetrators of the Boston bombing would be disgruntled militia members or lone wolf operatives AKA crazy White guy(s). Patriot's day/week seems to be the go to time to carry out these type of attacks.

Have the brothers been linked to any terror/militia/etc groups and have their motives been established in any way?

April seems like a very interesting month for the USA.

Working at a radio station in OK at the time. Doing morning drive but happened to be hanging around the station when the call came in that they'd caught McVeigh. Drove to Perry,OK where he was initially held to report for the station. Waited a couple hours to see him brought out of courthouse. Chilling moment I'll never forget, to think that this nothing, normal looking guy could be capable of such an act.

McVeigh's fertilizer bomb makes Tsarnaev's look like a firecracker.
