February 28, 1993, a raid by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms sparked the biggest firefight in the history of American law enforcement and continued debate 20 years later. Two agents who were there say the disastrous raid led to fundamental changes in ATF.

“They were throwing grenades out the window”
I call BS on that one.
As far as I am concerned, ANYONE associated with any agency of the US Government that was in attendance at WACO when they set fire to the compound and murdered dozens of children, women, and men, should be in prison for murder.
I would not believe anything anyone from the ATF says. They, the agency is an anachronism from times gone by. It should not exist, period.
How the FBI's Hostage Roasting Team got its name.
Dead men tell no tales, and that’s what concerns me about the pliant media. These things can and likely will happen to individuals and small groups across the nation in the near future with Obama and his ilk trying to muster an internal army of his own choosing.
We may be pinned down, outgunned, and we can call 911 for help and plead to have the federales called off, but those calls will likely fall on deaf ears and never be made public. We’ll be branded “psychopaths” with “arsenals” who murdered agents “in cold blood.”
When ATF can produce the missing doors, then I might be willing to listen to the rest of what they have to say.
didn’t those four ATF agents take shots the back of the head rather than the front, implying they were shot by their own men?
It is difficult to prove at this point. In any case where one side of an argument/hostility is completely dead, it only remains for the winning side to lie their asses off in their favor.
The fact that they can’t even lie well speaks VOLUMES! Incompetent, showboating, murdering bureaucrats with itchy trigger fingers....
I said earlier about wishing all connected on the government side were in prison....scratch that..they should have been lined up against the rubble and shot.
Lots of bullsh*t in that incredibly one-sided article.
History? Or, propaganda? You decide.
I hope so, because that was one huge mass of misinformation.
Waco was a lesson learned for the gov't. After that the militia grew like wildfire in a drought. They know the American people are armed and have a tolerance level. They depend on that tolerance level by gradually compromising each generation a little more than the last, so that they can win without firing a shot.
The "talk radio" guy then was Ron Engleman, still alive somewhere, I presume..
..he talked to Koresh directly
I would think that he should be asked what happened...
ATF storms the buildings for no reason.
People in building try and defend themselves.
People is building were burned alive.....ATF that showed them.
“These agents were murdered and they never got the true respect that they deserve.”
Cry me a river!
I wonder if Bill Clinton will have anything to say about Sandy Hook today.
Bought the movie when it came out, FLIR is rather damning to EVERYTHING the Government says about this Execution of Women and Children. They should all rot in Prison and for sure they will Rot IN HELL.
Anyone who knows anything about this raid can easily spot at least a dozen untruths in this account.
If this happens again, these jack booted thugs better be taking fire from all sides.
