Posted on 02/19/2017 2:51:12 PM PST by nickcarraway
Nearly 24 years after the Branch Davidian standoff began near Waco, some federal agents are opening up about their experiences that resulted in the worst day in the history of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and ultimately the deaths of some 70 people inside the compound more than seven weeks later.
"I've decided I'm never going to forget, and I owe it to the guys who were killed to tell their story," ATF Agent Gary Orchowski told the Houston Chronicle in a story published Sunday.
Four agents were killed Feb. 28, 1993, when more than 130 ATF special agents and support staff from Houston, Dallas and New Orleans showed up to execute search warrants for illegal stockpiles of automatic weapons and explosives at the compound.

Almost a quarter century later, none of the government murderers who slaughtered dozens of innocent Americans have been held accountable.
when did Tass start writing about American history? Wasn’t much of a shootout. A shoot out usually infers there were two sides doing a lot of shooting.
They never should have been sent in there.
If I recall, this was a “showboat” operation by the ATF for TV. The agents fired first by shooting the dogs and then riddling the front door with bullets.
All the local sheriff had to do was pick up Koresh whenever he went into town for suppies, but the ATF were looking for a shoot out.
It was massacre of epic proportions, and to this day, no one has been held accountable.
24 years later and the same bullshit... Koresh went jogging every morning off property. they could have got him anytime! but someone needed to grand stand... someone post that old pic of Reno with the hairy ass...
I wouldn't say that. Janet Reno is probably burning in hell about now.
Wasn’t McVeigh bombing the Oklahoma City Building a retaliation for the massacre?
BTW, Who ordered the Waco Massacre to begin with?
Another name on the list.
There was a story online about the real reason for the slaughter at WACO. It is, perhaps, related to the current ongoing Pizzagate scandal and Trump’s round up of child/human sex trafficking networks.
There was an airstrip near the Waco Davidian compound that was rumored to be a launch point for Saudi/Bush/Clinton child/human sex trafficking global network. The Branch Davidians were reportedly saving the children, or trying to save them, from this network. And the Clinton’s are in on this network as well.Hence, their carrying out this assault.
When I heard this, I realized the assault was carried out to leave no one alive, especially the children the Davidians saved, because they could testify against the Bush/Saudi/Clinton sex trafficking ring if they survived. No one was going to survive, to cover this globalist pedophile network.
It makes sense when you think about it, IMHO.
Eric Holder not questioned about Waco Branch Davidian siege..
I think it was the cigar man himself. Along with Janet Reno.
[All the local sheriff had to do was pick up Koresh whenever he went into town for suppies, but the ATF were looking for a shoot out.]
Yes, it was well-known that Koresh was in town all the time. Townspeople were on TV talking about it.
I cannot be certain, but there was a guy who (looking back now) reminds me of Eric Holder - of course, spouting nonsense, as he always does. I have often wondered if it was him or just some other guy. I saw it on TV but cannot remember what the show was nor anything about it.
He was repeating the lie that Koresh was never in town.
McVeigh”s Letter to Fox News
The following letter has been authenticated and was sent to Fox News Correspondent Rita Cosby. The opening statement was a photocopied statement in McVeigh”s writing. The question-and-answer section following it is clearly an original version in McVeigh”s writing.
I explain herein why I bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. I explain this not for publicity, nor seeking to win and argument of right or wrong. I explain so that the record is clear as to my thinking and motivations in bombing a government installation.
I chose to bomb a federal building because such an action served more purposes than other options. Foremost, the bombing was a retaliatory strike; a counter attack, for the cumulative raids (and subsequent violence and damage) that federal agents had participated in over the preceding years (including, but not limited to, Waco.) From the formation of such units as the FBI”s “Hostage Rescue” and other assault teams amongst federal agencies during the “80”s; culminating in the Waco incident, federal actions grew increasingly militaristic and violent, to the point where at Waco, our government - like the Chinese - was deploying tanks against its own citizens....................
This occurred during Bill Clinton's 1st administration. Janet Reno authorized the cs-gassing of men, women and children and shot anyone who tried to leave.
McNulty's "The FLIR Project" provides convincing evidence that Fully automatic weapons fire kept people in the complex, forcing them to burn. A massacre.
Am I a bad person for saying that I hope Lon Horiuchi gets to join her there?
>Wasnt McVeigh bombing the Oklahoma City Building a retaliation for the massacre?
Yes. Sad to it worked. No more Ruby Ridges and Wacos after McVeigh’s revenge attack.
I’d love to be able to substantiate that. Would definitely help to make sense of the situation.
