This Day in the History of American Massacres

On this day in 1993, the 51-day siege at the Branch Davidian compound at Mount Carmel near Waco, Texas, ended when fire destroyed the compound and killed nearly everyone inside. I am not convinced by the films on the subject which state that agents of the United States set the fire, but certainly we didn't have to push the poor, deluded, messianic David Koresh to self immolation. The people in the compound were surrounded and weren't going anywhere; and what Attorney General Janet Reno said was what caused her to order the assault, that children were being abused, is at best her delusion (she had a history of seeing child abuse where there was none) and more likely another bald lie from the Clinton administration. Sad day all around.
