That's as much as I can do. Watching Poe's Law play out here was amusing for a while, but it's starting to make me kind of sad.

I haven't done a real, in-depth 'study' on this, but just based on what I have observed over the last seventy-plus years it appears to me that those who complain the most about socialism are right up there at the front of the line with both of their hands out, grabbing all that they can grab.
So, excuse me while I ignore their time-wasting malarkey.

The event was so well recorded because the media was there, and they were informed of the raid the day before.
Did you ever see any of that footage? Quite graphic. The ATF guys actually got up on the roof of the house when fire from the inside quickly killed at least 1, maybe more.
That the media was tipped off is not in dispute as a reporter asked for directions to the compound from a relative of David Koresh who passed that onto David. But again any proof it was the ATF?????
Oh the video of the botched raid had been used time and time again as a training aid. The rounds coming through the thin walls are a graphic reminder that in urban fighting not being seen in no way means not being hit.
But we were discussing the ending of the 51 day stand-off and who fired incendiary rounds- no one did- and who set the fires as well as who escaped without smoke of fire injury.
The cameraman who ran into the postal worker who tipped off David Koresh worked for 'News of Texas', Dan Mulloney, claimed a reporter from the 'Waco Tribune-Herald',Tommy Witherspoon, tipped him off and that reporter's source was the Head of the county drug task force Cal Luedke- assigned to coordinate local/federal cooperation. Tommy Witherspoon claims Mulloney's GF tipped the cameraman off. She worked in the local ambulance service and they were alerted before the raid.
The Texas Rangers and FBI investigated, while the results have not been made public, 'sources' claim these investigations named Officer Luedke. The ATF raid survivors and spouses sued the two news sources and the ambulance service- they were awarded 12 million.
Not one mention of the ATF holding a press conference or sending out a news alert, no from 'higher' announcement to 'show the nation' how tough the Clinton Administration was on crime.
So the book(s) you have not seen in a decade just might come with a tinfoil hat, dunno as you have not even mentioned their titles
