    Contrary to public statements made in recent days, Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI officials planned the final deadly assault on the Branch Davidian church in Waco, Texas, with top officers of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, according to classified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and Special Forces sources. The FBI actually requested that Special Forces Delta Force operatives consult with them, be present on the scene and maintain equipment in preparation for a resolution of the 1993 51-day standoff that resulted in a fire that killed 74 civilians including many children, according to the documents and...

    PARIS (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that the U.S. will bring "unique capabilities to bear" in Libya as a global coalition began enforcing a U.N.-authorized no-fly zone to protect civilians from Moammar Gadhafi's forces. The world will not "sit idly by," she said at a news conference, amid fears that Gadhafi will commit "unspeakable atrocities" against his people.

    Former Attorney General Janet Reno said the U.S. government must be careful to avoid selectively using facts when prosecuting suspected terrorists. Reno, who served as attorney general under President Bill Clinton, said prosecutors often allow prejudices to skew their use of facts. "But what I've discovered (from being a prosecutor and attorney general) is that we get tunnel vision," Reno said. "We want the facts to be something and we wish them into being." Reno made her comments while speaking to an audience of mostly students and professors at the S.J. Quinney College of Law on Tuesday. Her speech focused...

    MIAMI -- Former Attorney General Janet Reno got up and sang Aretha Franklin's "Respect" at a Miami fundraiser Thursday night. The karaoke performance was caught on tape. It happened at an event honoring the 10th anniversary of the Human Services Coalition. Proceeds went to help fight poverty. Reno suffers from Parkinson's disease, but that hasn't stopped her public appearances. Recently, she gave speeches on law enforcement at the University of Iowa and Pennsylvania State University.

    Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno wowed the crowd at the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association's conference in Montreal on Sept. 24 with an impassioned speech on universal healthcare, wrapping up the GLMA's annual conference with an inspired bang. Reno stressed the importance of gay healthcare professionals to come out and work as a community as the best means of standing up to an increasingly conservative, homophobic culture and government. “By utilizing the professional bonds and friendships built up through your work, I believe you can build a system of healthcare delivery that will make us all proud,” said Reno....

    Miami Herald ^ | 09/25/04 | MARC CAPUTO AND BETH REINHARD
    Calling the federal agents who seized Elián González ''armed thugs,'' the campaign of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mel Martinez chided Democratic opponent Betty Castor on Friday for campaigning with the U.S. attorney general who sent the shipwrecked boy back to Cuba four years ago. The language provoked outrage from Castor's campaign and from the national union that represented the immigration officers who took Elián from his Miami relatives and returned him to his father at the behest of then-Attorney General Janet Reno. ''Those were law enforcement officers doing their jobs, risking their lives,'' Castor spokesman Dan McLaughlin said of the...
  • Reno speaks

    <p>That paragon of rectitude and competence, former Attorney General Janet Reno, disapproves of the way her successor, John Ashcroft, is doing his job. Speaking to university students in Minnesota Monday, Miss Reno suggested that Mr. Ashcroft had questioned the patriotism of critics of the Bush administration's conduct of the war on terror. "It is important that we bring people to justice according to the principles of our Constitution," Miss Reno declared. "The day we start giving up our freedoms, the bad guys have won." While this editorial page has criticized Mr. Ashcroft's handling of some issues (such as the administration's push for military tribunals), he has done an outstanding job in the wake of September 11 of mobilizing U.S. law enforcement action to prevent more terrorist attacks on Americans.</p>
