24 Children Murdered: Hunt for Killers Continues
by Weldon Clark

To anyone who prizes his or her freedom, Waco needs no
introduction.  But you do need to know about recent
developments in the investigation of the matter. The need is
especially clear since most of the national media have been
working hard to ignore the story--despite its listing on AP and
UPI wire services, and discussion in the Washington Times,
the Washington Post, and other sources.

First, there have been lawsuits filed by families of those killed
at Waco and by some of the survivors. The suits were
transferred to Judge Smith, the same judge who sentenced
some of the Davidians to long prison terms, and is generally
thought of as a very pro-government, very anti-Davidian
judge. The government of course moved to dismiss the
cases.  To the surprise of many, Judge Smith refused,
leaving open such claims as the Davidians' assertion that the
government shot at people leaving the burning building. This,
Smith stated, had at least some evidence to support it, and if
proven would "shock the conscience of the court."

Judge Smith must have been startled at the next
development.  Without warning, the Texas Department of
Public Safety appeared in his court. TDPS announced that
the Texas Rangers (which are part of TDPS) had two large
rooms full of Waco evidence that had never seen the light of
day. It explained that members of the public--documentary
producer Michael McNulty and attorney David Hardy--had
been asking for copies, but that when it offered to make
them, federal agencies forbade it. Yet when McNulty and
Hardy asked the federal agencies for copies, the same
agencies claimed that they couldn't give them because only
the Rangers had control over the evidence. TDPS added that
it did not want to be responsible for withholding the evidence,
hinted that it did not trust the federal agencies to have it, and
offered to file the entire mass (estimated at twelve tons of
material) in court!

Things became more lively when TDPS explained just what
was in the evidence. TDPS commissioner Jim Francis said
that it contained government fired projectiles, which appeared
to be pyrotechnic (that is, fire producing).  It appears to this
author that may prove that FBI started the fire that killed 74
people, including two dozen children. He allowed he was no
expert, but said the evidence would be at least "problematic"
for the FBI's position. (The projectiles, fired from the FBI's M-
79 grenade launchers, including pyrotechnic CS gas rounds.
These expel the CS by burning a mixture similar to black
powder, and are stamped with warnings that they cause fires
and may not be used against buildings.)  The evidence was
so sensitive, Francis explained, that he had instructed the
Rangers to keep FBI out of the evidence locker until it could
be secured with the court, and he had ordered the Rangers
to commence their own investigation.

The revelation of hidden evidence must have shocked Judge
Smith, hitherto seen as very pro-government. He issued an
order accepting the Ranger's evidence. Then he issued a
second order, which is utterly unprecedented. He ordered all
federal agencies to turn over to the court all evidence "in any
way relevant to the events at Mt. Carmel [the Davidian
building]." No one had even thought to ask for such an order;
in a civil case, judges just don't order all the evidence turned
in, whether it has been subpoenaed or not. An anonymous
law enforcement authority was quoted in the Dallas Morning
News as predicting that "The Justice Department is going to
have a fit!"

That's a safe prediction. Attorney Hardy's Freedom of
Information Act suit drove ATF to admit that it had three and
maybe four video cameras filming what happened at the
Davidians' front door, and likely showing exactly what had
happened when the first shots were fired--but ATF claimed all
copies had vanished. So had an infrared tape of the building,
which would conclusively show if and when the Davidians
fired. We may now know exactly where those tapes are
sitting, and exactly why they've had to be hidden for six

Now for the things we can't talk about--or, at least, things
were we can only reveal part of the story. Michael McNulty,
producer of the documentary "Waco: The Rules of
Engagement," is producing a second documentary. If the first
one was stunning--it won an Academy Award nomination--the
second one makes it look mild. With solid evidence, most of it
from the government's own files, he shows that the FBI may
be guilty of lying, perjury, and homicide. He found the 40 mm
Pyrotechnic shells, and tied them to the fire. Retired FBI and
government sources agreed to talk. The picture that emerges
is even grimmer than we might have thought.

Some Davidians had claimed that FBI fired into the building
and shot at people who tried to escape. McNulty has
uncovered STRONG proof that the statements are true. FBI
infrared tapes, far better than those shown in his first
documentary, show not only the FBI gunshots but also the
FBI shooters. A law enforcement videotape shows the
muzzle flashes. Internal FBI reports confirm that gunfire was
heard from one of their sniper positions. This is only a tiny
part of the new evidence McNulty has uncovered, but it
should give you a guess as to what the rest is like.

Here are just some of the indictments, each carefully
documented, that McNulty's new documentary will level.
Yes, there is a reason why 74 people burned rather than
escape the burning building. Those who came out the back
way--away from the media cameras--had been shot as they
tried to get out. Yes, the "brave federal agents" got trigger-
happy.  Yes, a federal agency levied war against American
civilians--including two dozen children.

McNulty showed his documentary to Congressional staffs
recently, and the effect was immediate. Congressmen and
Staffers were seen leaving in tears, others in angry
determination. Now there is talk of new congressional
hearings- done the right way, for once. The Washington
Times carried the story under the headlines "The Waco
Cover-up Begins to Unravel."

Sources close to the case demanded anonymity to avoid
Judicial Reprisals. The Waco dam is cracking, and we need
your help to break it wide open. If you value your freedom,
and the Republic we have known and loved, sit down, right
now, and:

1. Write your own Congressman, demanding hearings into
the new evidence uncovered in Texas and soon to be seen in
a disturbing new documentary film:
 "Waco: A New Revelation".  You can call your representatives
at the following toll-free numbers US Capitol Switchboard:

2. Down load this document and make copies to distribute to
your friends, family and coworkers.  Resend this article as far
and wide as you possibly can. To spread the word call Rush
Limbaugh at 1-800-282-2882 and,
 callers may call in from 12 noon to 3PM EST, M-F

3. Write Jim Francis, Chairman - Texas Dept of Public Safety,
P.O. Box 4087, Austin, TX 78773-0001 thanking him for his
integrity and for protecting the reputation of his State and that
of the Texas Rangers.  Jim Francis was appointed to this
position by Governor George W. Bush and we may assume
his actions in standing up to the feds have the tacit approval
of Governor Bush.

4. If you can, contribute to pressing the civil suits brought by
the Davidians. Most of what they had went up in smoke, and
they're now faced with the need to finance lawsuits against
the government--which is defending with your tax dollars.
None of this money is for attorney fees.  The case requires
expensive depositions.  Contributions can be sent to (and
checks made out to) WACO JUSTICE FUND, 5847 San Felipe,
Suite 1450, Houston, Texas, US 77057.
