That’s the day I went from a firm believer in the goodness of our government to a person who will never trust an armed government operative operating inside the USA again.

Well, I was never a firm believer in the goodness of our government but Waco and Ruby Ridge dialed any confidence I had way way down.

Janet Reno took full responsibility. What does that even mean? Resignation, seppuku - or do you just keep doing your job and answer to God? I suppose a general has to do that, but she was Attorney General, not military.

Reagan said the same thing about the Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon. Full responsibility.

Just words. And smoke and ashes, disappearing in the air.

Same here. It was a very rude awakening.
