The Waco Job came into two stages. The first was an attack on David Koresh's place near Waco, Texas carried out by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives [ BATF ]. They lost four dead, which may well have been own goals. Then there was the final attack using tanks, tear gas, and helicopter gun ships. They are very effective against women and children. People were murdered. Survivors were put in prison for their pains.
An inquest in England much later, run by a
fellow called Gorodkin chose to claim that the
FBI's victims committed suicide.
Believe English justice if you want after that.
PS There was an inquiry rather than an inquest after David Kelly was murdered. They used Hutton who has a track record of giving the government the answers they wanted.

Waco Massacre - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco_Siege - 28 February 1993 Waco Massacre I
The BATF [ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms ] attacked a Christian community in Texas, killing six people. They lost four of theirs dead in the process which may well have been own goals. It was the only saving grace of the affair. The FBI took over and besieged them for months. David Koresh was the leader of this group. He beat an attempted murder rap but the FBI got him later. The author of this piece seems to feel that it was right to carry out a massacre of women and children. Others are less nonchalant. See The Waco Massacre It happened on Clinton's watch.
PS This is from the Wiki which can be good until the agenda kicks in. This is one such case.
Waco cult leader `had lust for virgins' - broken link
The head line is verbatim. It might even be true but the article is basically a hatchet job and a cover up for the murders carried out by the FBI at Waco.
Koresh blamed for cult Britons' deaths - broken link
The blame for the tragic deaths of 23 Britons in the Waco compound of the Branch Davidians in Texas must lie with the fanatical cult leader David Koresh, a coroner said yesterday.
Leonard Gorodkin, the Manchester coroner, said that Koresh, the self-styled Messiah, could have saved the lives of those inside despite the FBI's tank and tear gas assault on the building. However, the coroner also said that the FBI raid had been badly planned, ill-conceived and doomed to failure.
The coroner recorded open verdicts on all the Britons except six-year-old Melissa Morrison from Manchester, who he said had been unlawfully killed because her age meant she could not possibly have consented to what was happening. Mr Gorodkin told the court, packed with relatives of the dead, that by the final raid on 19 April 1993, at the end of a 51-day siege, Koresh had possibly decided his death was coming.
"I believe all the deaths that occurred on 19 April were his decision and must be laid at his door, and despite what went on outside he could have saved them. It was as a result of his personality and his hold over those people that they died on that day," said Mr Gorodkin.
The building had been set on fire deliberately during the FBI tank and gas assault at the end of the siege. Seventy-five Branch Davidians died in the fire along with Koresh and his right hand man, Steve Schneider.
The open verdicts included those on brothers Phillip and Stephen Henry, from Manchester, who both had gunshot wounds, although they were alive when the fire started. For Winston Blake, 27, from Nottingham, who was shot at close range during a raid on 28 February, there was also an open verdict because it was impossible to say how it had happened.
The inquest had heard earlier that all the other victims died from the effects of inhaling smoke as the compound turned into an inferno.
Gorodkin came out with his verdict. You can believe the man if you want. I don't but it is the verdict that FBI wanted. After all they did the murders. They did the investigation. They destroyed the evidence. They committed perjury. They perverted the course of justice and now they have managed to get a clean bill of health.
Justice must be seen to be done?
Justice must be seen to be believed.
