Antiwar Radio: David T. Hardy

David T. Hardy, author of This Is Not an Assault: Penetrating the Web of Official Lies Regarding the Waco Incident, discusses the regular practice of federal law enforcement agencies conducting headline-grabbing raids just before Congressional appropriations, the scandal-plagued ATF’s attempt to get back in the Clinton government’s good graces by cracking down on right-wing groups, how ATF “undercover” agents – just nine days before the assault began – were granted access to the Branch Davidian compound and test-fired weapons with David Koresh, the FBI’s attempts to humiliate and provoke a violent response from the Davidians, how FOIA requests have reclaimed some of the reams of missing evidence, how Janet Reno was apparently lied to and manipulated into approving an escalation of force, the lethal effects of highly concentrated CS gas and the infrared footage that shows gunfire was indeed coming from FBI positions surrounding the compound.
