Waco: The Cover-Up Continues To Unravel
- Evidence has come forth that a dozen spent rifle cartridges were recovered by the Texas Rangers from a house used by the FBI during the 1993 stand-off with members of the Branch Davidians living on a compound just outside of Waco, Texas. The recently-appointed special investigator, former U.S. Senator John Danforth, will reexamine a two-page document from FBI agent Charles
Riley that suggests a sniper posted in this house fired shots on the compound. Riley reported in his June 1993 account that he heard gunfire from a post occupied by agent Lon Horiuchi. Riley later recanted his statement.
- Several FBI agents have testified that they saw and heard Davidians firing on the armored vehicles that were used to deliver tear-gas into the compound,
but that no agents fired in return. Now two experts in thermal imaging contend an infrared video taken during the assault show that shots were being fired toward the Davidians by the agents.
- Attorney General Janet Reno's Department of Justice (DOJ) has removed the federal prosecutor who raised concerns over the Waco standoff. Ten days after
he wrote a letter to Reno exposing the DOJ's cover-up of the use of pyrotechnics during the Waco standoff, and less than 24 hours after his letter was released to the public, Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Johnston was
abruptly removed from the case. "I'm not sure what to make of it," said Johnston. "I'm trying not to be paranoidÍ Nothing in this case surprises me."
- Danforth has announced that his inquiry will be limited to the latest FBI cover-up and not the entire raid against the Davidians. This will leave many
important questions still unanswered, such as: Why did the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) really raid the Davidian compound? Why did BATF use such police-state tactics? Most important, who is responsible for the fiery deaths of the innocent children, women and men in the compound?
Please Join in Agreeing Prayer:
We pray for TRUTH to come forth, O Lord. We ask that anything that is hidden
be EXPOSED to the Light. CLEANSE the nation of this horrible assault upon innocent men, women and children. Grant REPENTANCE to those who have sinned against You, Almighty God. May JUSTICE sweep through the halls of the
Department of Justice, the White House, the FBI, and Congress. And may God ARISE and His enemies be scattered. In the Name of Jesus. Amen! (Ps 10:11&12; 33:10&11; 68:1; 83:1-4; Is 18:17&18; Lk 5:32; Acts 5:31; 1 Cor 4:5; 2 Tim
