DescriptionA 51-day siege which "tired and frustrated" the FBI negotiators after which the FBI burned down the compound.

Initial Raid

The initial raid killed 4 ATF agents and 6 Branch Davidians.[1] All of the ATF agents (Steve Willis,[2] Robert Wiliams,[3] Conway LeBleu,[4] Todd McKeehan[5]) were shot in a way that "questions were raised as to the nature and source of their wounds".[6][7]

Siege

Following the initial raid, a 51-day siege ensued, which "tired and frustrated" the FBI negotiators.[8][9] This ended with an assault by the FBI during which the compound burned down, killing 76 people. The tanks brought in for the final raid were, according to reports published at Counterpunch, from the Cavalry Division of the III Corps at Fort Hood, whose commander at the time was Wesley Clark.[10][11][12]

Investigation

In 1999, United States Attorney General Janet Reno appointed John Danforth to investigate the FBI's conduct in Waco. Danforth chose Edward L. Dowd as his deputy special counsel in this capacity.
