Waco: The Big Lie Parts I & II (Linda Thompson)


This massacre of US citizens by the inept and corrupt ‘ATF’ happened before the advent of the internet, in the same year (1993) that saw the emerging capitalist system in Moscow murder over a thousand Communist protesters, and President Bill Clinton sign into law a statue for the fictitious victims of Communism to be raised in a Washington park! Perhaps this incident of the US government murdering its own citizens was a prelude to 911.  The religious community at Waco had every right to ‘protect’ themselves from an out of control ATF – but film evidence suggests that three of the four ATF agents that were killed – were actually shot by their own colleague ‘in the back’ as they entered the building through an upstairs window (all recorded on film).  The ATF lied so much (and edited the film footage to such an extent) that the inconsistencies in their description of events is illogical, discontinuous, and is not backed-up by objective evidence.  What really happened is that the ATF attempted to enforce a warrant that demanded a $200 tax-fine for a ‘legal’ machine gun allegedly owned by the community.  Later, the ATF  stared to make bizarre allegations that David Koresh was practising polygamy and child abuse! The Texas Social Services had investigated these allegations in 1991 and 1992, and stated that they were completely false.  The only abuse was from the government helicopters that fired machine guns into the building – wounding and killing many women and children. Of course, in the end the Clinton government authorised US Army tanks to smash the outer walls of the compound, and use flame-throwers to set fire to the interior – killing over 70 innocent people.  The film shows some people running out of the subsequent fire – only to run back into the flames to avoid the ATF who had opened fire on them.  After this disaster, the ATF and the Clinton government concocted an alternative history, and continued to abuse and oppress members of the Branch Davidian Church:
