Twelfth Anniversary of Waco

Writes Anthony Gregory at the LewRockwell blog:

Twelve years ago, on February 28, 1993, an ATF publicity stunt went horribly wrong at Waco, Texas, leaving four agents and an uncertain number of Branch Davidians dead. For fifty-one days there was a standoff that culminated in an FBI fire that killed 80 American civilians, including about two dozen children.

Looking at Iraq, we see Waco every day. We must remember all federal crimes of terror, here and abroad, lest they multiply.

So-called liberals who defend Clinton, Reno, and Waco have no credibility - and I mean, none - when lecturing the Bush administration about fascism. To excuse Waco is to be a fascist. The Branch Davidians were doing nothing more than exercizing their First and Second Amendment rights. Their paranoia was verified, not discredited, by the ATF's unnecessary attack.

The nation has yet to repent for this atrocity committed against American citizens. And there's really no hope for the future until we do.
