    Looking back at 1993. What happened in Waco?

    Here's an interesting documentary I started watching but haven't finished yet:



    I was only 11 when this was going on, so I'm curious to hear from older members who remember what was being reported at the time.

    Well, at the time, it was reported he was a wacko religious freak that was molesting children, etc, etc.

    I think what we know now sort of indicates that the ATF was looking for a fight, and sure enough got one.
    Koresh was known to be out of the compound, and they could have taken him into custody anytime they
    wanted to.

    The situation could have been handled signifigantly better than it was, certainly. I don't think there was any
    intent to burn up children, and all this other silly crap that's forwarded by, in my opinion, idiots.

    At the time, I was like..."Meh, one less child molester."

    Now, I look at it a little differently. I think both sides got what they wanted in the end.

    Thanks Shifty!

    Waco, Ruby Ridge, Elian Gonzalez .... lot's of things were handled in a questionable manner during that period of time.

    Look......I could go off on Clinton.....I hate that son of a bitch, but, I'm not going to blame all the world's problems on him.
    Janet Reno has lots of blood on her hands....But, I think she knows that already.

    History stands as history is.

    I'd prefer to let it stand that way.

    I got stuck listening to Glenn Beck in the hotel van I must say I find it very interesting the original suspect the Saudi is being deported to bad we won't ever find out what happens to him when he gets to Saudi Arabia is does Saudi intelligence sweep him up to interrogate? If that happens sucks to be him!

    Damn I am sorry I meant to post that in the Glenn Beck thread don't know what happened. As far as furloughs today is the first day dealing with it for me and my first flight is 2 hrs late, I am ORD based and they are shutting down one out of two control towers which in theory reduces arrival rates by as much as 33%. I know they are also losing controllers in center and approach control so that is going to really slow things down especially on bad weather days.

    That sucks. Why are you based out of chicago? Thought you were Delta and would be out of Atlanta or somewhere nearby.
