The report, released Oct. 8, largely praised the FBI, which took over the siege after four agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms died in the intitial raid. But the report gives no concise rationale for the FBI's use of tear-gas spraying armored vehicles to end the siege on April 19. Up to 85 people, 25 of them children, died at the end of the siege from a fire started by cult members or from gunshots by cult members, the Justice Department said. The New York Times called the results a "whitewash" in an editorial Tuesday. The Baltimore Sun called the report "a flawed examination" in an editorial the same day. Some support for the department came from The Washington Post, which said in a Tuesday editorial that "it is difficult to cast blame after reviewing the evidence." ********************* PROGRESS!! The mainstream papers are finally sitting up and taking notice of the coverup! At the DOJ press conference last Friday, several questions were asked about the Waco Tape and DOJ had no good answer (but were VERY aware of the tape and its contents). DOJ was visibly nervous in response. Reporters are now onto the story. This is the BEGINNING, not the END of the investigation. Stay tuned! The truth is being exposed, slowly but surely!
