Janet Reno, the nations first female attorney general, approved the FBIs assault on the Davidians. Previously, she had zealously prosecuted child abuse cases in Dade County, Fla, though many of her high-profile convictions were later overturned because of gross violations of due process. Reno approved the FBI assault after being told babies were being beaten. It is not known who told her about the false claims of child abuse. Renos sterling reputation helped the government avoid any apparent culpability for the deaths of 27 children on April 19, 1993. After Reno publicly promised to take responsibility for the outcome at Waco, the subsequent Justice Department investigation was so shoddy that even the New York Times denounced the Waco whitewash. .
When Attorney General Reno testified to the House Waco hearing on August 1, 1995, she was challenged on FBIs use of 54-ton tanks to assail the Davidians. Reno replied that the tanks were not military weapons
I mean, it was like a good rent-a-car. When Rep. Bill Zeliff (R-N.H.) challenged her, Reno hectored: I think it is important, Mr. Chairman, as you deal with this issue, not to make statements like that can cause the confusion. This is the high-toned D.C. version of the old saying: Who are you going to believe me or your lying eyes? Media coverage of Renos showdown with congressional Republicans ignored her rent-a-tank absurdity, instead praising her toughness and demeanor

Americans murdered because they were practicing their constitutional rights. Remember all the mass protests in the streets after this? Neither do I
Reno is roasting in Hell.
Waco and Illian Gonzalez,
One thing I will never forget is the local authorities said afterwards there was some much lead in the soil from shooting that no one could go in the area. Then they treated it as toxic waste and scraped down and removed the soil. At that point I could understand how evil sometimes our government can be.
They were afraid that the Davidians that did not die that day may find something to form a defense. As I understand it the locals on the jury trials saw through what the government was doing.
This was a horrible chapter in America’s history and once again the Clintons are part of it.
Big lesson: the FBI are bag guys. We are still learning this. But the FBI is still around so the lesson hasn’t sunk in.
Really evil people doing what such people do.
The Republicans basically rolled over and played dead. Well except for those Republicans who aided and abetted.
You have a problem with the way we work at the FBI...?
Perhaps you WISH TO FILE A COMPLAINT..?! .
Atlanta Olympics, 1996:
An overweight security guard Richard Jewell finds a bomb in a crowded Atlanta park, an act of terror. He alerts the cops, but the bomb goes off and a desperate Bill Clinton facing a reelection bid ORDERS the FBI to simplify things by making Richard Jewell the perp.
Knowing Richard Jewell revers real cops the FBI brings him in for questioning, finally pretending to relent and accept his story of innocence. They then flattered him and lowered his guard by chatting him up in grand style like A Law Enforcement Colleague.
The FBI then claimed to Jewell that they were making a Training Videotape simulation in which a perp under questioning breaks down and confresses to a bombing, Ah shucks, our actor crapped out, got sick, say Richard, would ya help us FBI guys out..?
A micrometer away from consenting to help them with their training video, Jewell suddenly realizes if he cooperated with his friends, they might turn around use the tape against him in the world famous bombing that just transpired.
He calls his ex-roomate, a lawyer, who admonishes Jewell that hes in very grave danger. He leaves the FBI questioning and AVOIDS LIFE IN PRISON BY A WHISKER.
YOUR FBI IS **FINE** ACTING AS AN INSTRUMENT OF POLITICAL TERROR.
It started at least 20 years ago.
Reno was a freaking disaster as Florida AG, but The Horny Hick from Hope needed a female AG, and after C Lani Guinier and his other nominee went down in flames, he turned to Reno. And she was then a disaster as US AG.
He was a law-abiding, patriotic Green Beret who retired from the Army and went to live in Northern Idaho
They nearly handed him a life sentence
The goons came with a swarm of choppers, laying seige to the entire community
They murdered his pretty, religious wife, shooting her through the head with a sniper rifle as she held her infant daughter
They shot his young son in the back, killing him
But Randy surrendured and had his day in court
The Government Criminals claimed a major part of his life, now you see the old man
The FBI still suck all these years later.
ZimbabWaco learned nothing.
The lesson is libs think it is ok to kill 27 Christians and not care
26th anniversary. None of tge attention Columbine is getting.
The KKK came riding in from Dallas and offered their support to tge government against David Koresch
The Clintons were intent on showing Conservatives that their guns wouldnt save them.
They murdered children trying to make that point.
We are the Clintons. We are Democrats. We will murder to get what we want.
Just ask Qadaffi.
