Q On another subject, on Waco, how do you explain the
discrepancy between the federal reports of the autopsies of the
bodies that are coming out of Waco and the state? I guess it's the
Texas Ranger reports.
MS. MYERS: Most of the information is coming -- the
federal information is coming from the site. Clearly, there's been
some discrepancies and the Justice Department is looking into it.
Officials in the Justice Department were told, I believe the day

you have an answer on that?
MS. MYERS: I don't. I'll check.
THE PRESS: Thank you.
