From: jhart@agora.rain.com (Jim Hart) Subject: Nasty Coverup of FBI Atrocity Date: Sat, 24 Apr 93 1:10:42 PDT The FBI is getting away with what was, at the very least, a hideous mistake, with the most quick and thorough spin doctor campaign and coverup ever in the history of the United States. Let's cut throught the bullshit and wishful thinking and look at the actual facts of the case: * The FBI confidently told the American public that David Koresh had set fire to his Seventh-Day Adventist retreat within less than an hour of the blaze. Their minds were made up before they had any chance to gather evidence. They broadcast that story as the absolute truth to the entire world. * The FBI censored the press, banning cameras within 2 miles of the sanctuary, allowing no independent detailed evidence to be gathered. Several days *after* the atrocity, two reporters were arrested for walking inside the 2-mile censorship zone. Similarly, emergency personell were blocked from access to the site. In the LA riots, firefighters responded within minutes to fires, until they had been numerically overwhelmed, and braved bullets to do so. * Six independent, corroborrating witnesses, survivors of the inferno which burned at least 86 people alive, have revealed that the fire was set when an FBI-chartered heavy tank broke into the house, vibrating the structure like an earthquake and knocking over lanterns and propane tanks which had been crucial to heating and lighting the religious sanctuary since the BATF had cut off power. * All 86 people are *innocent*. There is no evidence that the Davidian Adventists broke any laws, not even gun laws for which the unopened search warrant was allegedly issued. The Davidians are guilty only of what may be the ultimate capital crime, being "whackos" in the eyes of the media. * The Tarrant County medical examiner in Fort Worth, Texas, has revealed that the FBI lied about finding that 3 victims had been shot. According to the examiner, "there is absolutely no evidence of that as far as we are concerned at this stage." * There is no evidence of child abuse at the religious retreat. The charge of child abuse is a major part of the FBI's effective, viscious smear campaign to gain sympathy and justification for their atrocity, reminiscent of the Nazi demonization ofJews during WWII. * Attorney General Janet Reno was quick to repeat the FBI stories of mass suicide and child abuse to the entire American public on national TV, without expressing any reservation or doubt that they might be true, despite the total lack of evidence for them. Bill Clinton was not at all quick to get involved, but when he did he repeated the viscious allegations, including the stories about child abuse, and placing the blame on David Koresh, despite complete lack of evidence for his starting the fire. The facts, if not our hopes, indicate that at least 86 innocent Americans have been burned alive by our own FBI. The FBI, Janet Reno, Bill Clinton, and much of the American public have constructed a facade of viscious stories to justify the atrocity rather than face up to the awful consequences of what has happened. Shame on us, shame, shame! Jim Hart jhart@agora.rain.com
