OT - When the next Waco dog and pony show starts...greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
...we need to make sure that some key issues are not ignored this time.
The ones that I can remember off the top of my head are:
Why did the BATF claim to be ambushed when TV video clearly shows them driving up and disembarking from the trailers un-opposed. This is clearly a lie.
Why did the FBI bulldoze the unburnt parts of the building back into the fire. Wasn't the building a crime scene? Isn't bulldozing the peices back in to the fire destroying evidence? Wasn't it against the goverments interests to have evidence destroyed?
Why was no one punished for lying about the Davidians having a meth' lab to get military helicopter? Isn't that against the law?
Why was the private laboratory hired by the NRA, the same one used by the BATF to examine the evidence in the World Trade Center bombing, turned away when they cam to Xray the supposedly "converted to full automatic" firearms after they got permission from the DOJ?
I can come up with more, if you go throught the news coverage of the time it's easy to find glaring inconsistancies in the government story. In fact, some real howlers. Write to your newspaper editors, and your congressmen as well (I guess). Get these questions asked.

You may have heard this already but today's Dallas Morning News is running a story on how the Justice Dept. is challenging Judge Smith's authority to control the Waco evidence. Don't you know the Justice Dept. would love to get their hands on that evidence? God forbid.
We should definitely keep our eyes open otherwise things of importance are going to disappear right before them.

Just remember that the BATF found out that the Davidians knew they were coming. If your planning a raid/attack on the "enemy" the LAST thing you do is go ahead with your plan when your plans are comprimised. For cryin out loud, if our military was run this way during WWII we would be a part of Nazi Germany today!
Incompetence over everything.

I remember that. Remember also that the National Guard helicopters had already flown over the compound. So the BATF undercover agent's warning didn't matter in the long run. The Davidians claim they were fired upon from them. Their lawyer said he saw the incoming bullet holes through the roof. They would have been pretty stirred up by the helicopters by the time the truck pulled up outside.

Perhaps we should provide them all with popcorn, a big-screen TV and the McNulty videos.
That should just about clear things up for them. And think of the time and tax dollars that would be saved...

LOL, but it's funny because it's true.
The thing that gives me the creeps about all this is that the mainstream reporters KNOW these questions need to be asked, but they cooperate with the DOJ's "fall-back position" in the coverup effort, repeating whatever they are told: "yes, we fired two (2) little CS gas canisters, at a bunker NEAR the compound, HOURS before the fire." The reporters just nod their heads, and take care not present any facts that are not sanctioned by their owners. They've seen the McNulty videos; they know the truth. They are complicit in the coverup; they are accessories to murder.

I glanced through the latest TIME magazine at a newstand today. Its lead-in sentence on the Government's 6 years of lying about Waco was something to the effect that "conspiracy buffs" are really convinced that it is a very serious issue, but chances are its merely the FBI's "bureaucratic sloppiness" that is at fault. Thats right, I kid you not -- "bureaucratic sloppiness".

If this little fact concerning two CS canisters is so trivial, why hide it from the public for six years? Just the tip of an iceberg?
