A new book unearths truths about the infamous Waco siege of 1993.

Early in the morning on April 19, 1993, the FBI sent in tanks to doze the walls of the massive Mount Carmel compound in Waco, Tex. It was a drastic measure to force Branch Davidian leader David Koresh and his people to surrender and face justice after a 51-day standoff that had begun with an illegal weapons investigation and the shooting deaths of six Davidians and four agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Feds had attempted to get Koresh’s followers to surrender in the days and weeks prior with little success.

So the FBI — who already looked bad after two followers of Koresh snuck through police lines to join the Davidians — began lobbying for approval to use more forceful tactics to take control of the situation.

“When this event started to dominate the news … the pressure escalated on the FBI to end this thing. It made the Clinton administration look terrible, it made the FBI look silly,” Kevin Cook, author of “Waco Rising: David Koresh, the FBI, and the Birth of America’s Modern Militias,” out Tuesday, told The Post. So the Feds pressured then-new Attorney General Janet Reno to allow them to use tear gas — “a tear gas that wasn’t allowed in warfare and she did.”

Up to where these events occurred, “militias” were mostly a bunch of vets that got together and kept their perishable skills up to date. Think of it as LARPing, but with actual ex military and not a bunch of noobs. The first informants were the guys who those groups kicked out because they were either weird, bullshitters, or just untrustworthy. They went to the FBI with stories about anti government sentiment and plots to overthrow the establishment. Then the FBI got the idea to infiltrate these groups. At first they found nothing of interest, but when money and budget talks came around, then they needed to justify their budget with results. Then came the agent provocateurs.

And since then there have been NO real militias. Everything you see now is a contrivance. Every last one of these groups from the Proud Boys on down, are state sponsored, easily controlled groups put out there as a means to justify the budgets of every alphabet agency in this country. there is an advantage to being the guy who watches, and I would encourage everyone to become a watcher right now. Because NOBODY in this groups is who they pretend to be, and they certainly are not what they pretend to stand for.
