FBI admit pyrotechnics at Waco

Squall Download 1, Oct/Nov 1999, pg. 8.

Six years after the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas was burnt to the ground with the loss of eighty lives, the FBI have admitted they did afterall throw fire flammable tear-gas canisters at the building.

The US government have always maintained that the occupants of compound had set fire to the building themselves, an official line now considerably weakened by the belated discovery of a video tape showing an FBI boss giving permission for at least two pyrotechnic gas canisters to be fired into the compound.

The FBI had previously denied they had used any incendiary devices but were forced into admitting they had mislead the public when the video was released in September.
