Subject: Nasty Coverup of FBI Atrocity

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
* 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
* 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!
