Waco Debacle

Last week, the fires of Waco reignited in Washington as the Attorney General, in an extraordinary action, ordered US Marshals to FBI headquarters to seize documents and materials relating to the government's siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco in 1993. Recent discoveries have indicated more active, and possibly illegal, involvement on the part of the US Military, and there is clear evidence that incendiary gas-delivery devices were used on a concrete bunker at the compound. The revelations have already prompted congressional declarations that another round of investigations will take place and given new life to theories that the fire at the compound in which 80 people perished was set not by the Davidians, but by the agents of the government. But, undoubtedly, the most immediate result of this new information is a severe credibility gap for both the Attorney General and the FBI.
