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.

I am not defending the Clinton Admin, Waco and Ruby Ridge went down with out Clinton's approval or knowledge. Both went down, went wrong, that is when Clinton and Reno were told. By then it was too late. THey took the blame to save the federal Gestapo

It was the Clintons' idea. Hillary who was then "co-president" was chairing the National Security Committee along with Vince Foster and she wanted to start her administration just the way Reagan did when he was firm with the air traffic controllers. National Security had the power to command the Ft. Bragg officers to tell Reno how it was going to be and to go into the field.
