[*It seems to me there was another, hidden reason behind murdering these people. They might have just wanted one or two dead and sacrificed all the others in a holocaust. It never made any sense to me why they could not simply arrest the leader at an appropriate moment, should he have done anything illegal. So apparently they had no reason to arrest him but wanted him and others dead. Of course, the leader, as a strong personality, when they came on with the big “tank”, he would resist and fight to the end. And they knew this. And that’s why they set it up this way and actually did come with a tank and grenades. What our government did here is atrocious. There might have also been a message to the rest of us to beware of establishing any kind of independently thinking group, church, or nationalist organization, etc. This was not about protecting citizens but about murdering people cold-bloodily. I’ll never forget the bone-chilling impact this had on me. After writing this, I find out from Kay Griggs (talk video below) that Waco was a practice mission to kill people. Apparently foreigners were used for the aggression. Just like that!]
Excerpt from The Judas Goats – The Enemy Within
by Michael Collins Piper
On April 16, 1993—just three days before the fiery holocaust at the Branch Davidian Church in Waco, Texas—a leading supporter of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith publicly revealed the ADL’s role in prodding the FBI/BATF actions at Waco, presumably not knowing, of course, of the awful ADL-provoked tragedy which lay ahead.
In a signed headline story which appeared in the April 16, 1993 edition of Heritage, Herb Brin, the publisher of the Southern California-based (and highly influential) Jewish weekly praised the ADL’s intelligence network and stated flatly:
U.S. and Texas authorities have precise documentation (from ADL, of course) on the Branch Davidian cult in Waco and how it operated in the past.
In other words, it was the ADL which was“advising”the FBI and the BATF on how to respond to the Davidians and what course of action would be necessary to bring the church members out of the compound. And in light of the relationship between the FBI and the BATF and the ADL, it is apparent that it was the ADL’s “documentation”—in Brin’s words—that led to the fiery holocaust.
Brin’s amazing revelation (ostensibly designed to praise the ADL’s activities) shed light on the truth about the propaganda and disinformation directed at the hapless and beleaguered Branch Davidian religious sect.Then, of course, it was just three days later that the Davidians were massacred.
Despite all the words that have been written about Waco, the only publication to reveal the ADL role (other than Brin’s Heritage newspaper) was The Spotlight, in a special report published on May 17, 1993, shortly after the Waco holocaust.
Although the FBI and the BATF played the front-line role in the botched raid on the Branch Davidian church at Waco, Texas, with the loss of several BATF agents in the process, the fact is that the ADL was active behind the scenes.
Even material published later in the so-called “mainstream” press provides additional evidence that there were indeed “outside” agencies such as the ADL that were prodding the government leading up to the Waco holocaust.
Two notable examples come to mind that are definitely worth noting for the official record.
First of all, on May 1, 1995, The Washington Times published an article by Dan Freedman of the Hearst newspapers which revealed:
Peter Smerick, the FBI’s lead criminal analyst and profiler of [Branch Davidian leader David] Koresh, has broken his silence to charge the bureau officials pressured him into changing his advice on how to resolve the situation without bloodshed . . . [He] had counseled a cautious, non-confrontational approach to Koresh in four memos written from Waco for senior FBI officials between March 3 and March 8, 1993. But he was pressured from above, Mr. Smerick says, as he was writing a fifth memo March 9. As a result, that memo contained subtle changes in tone and emphasis that amounted to an endorsement of a more aggressive approach against the Branch Davidians.
Although Smerick was initially hesitant to point an accusing finger at his former FBI superiors, he changed his mind, according to the report, “after becoming convinced that the traditionally independent process of FBI criminal analysis had been compromised at Waco.”
As the evidence suggests, it was the ADL, using its influence at the highest levels of the FBI, that caused the issuance of a faulty and biased analysis that resulted in the Waco tragedy.
However, it was not until July 2, 1995 that an article buried in the opinion section of The Washington Post laid out—at least indirectly in part—the details of the involvement of outside groups, including one in particular with long and intimate ties to the ADL.
The author of the article in question was J. Gordon Melton, director of the Institute for the Study of American Religion in Santa Barbara, California and author of the authoritative Encyclopedia of American Religions. His co-author on the article was Lawrence Criner, a journalist.
Under the headline “What the hearings may tell us” appeared the provocative subtitle asking the question, “Did the federal authorities heed the wrong ‘experts’?”—a question that Melton and Criner believe the much-ballyhooed then-upcoming congressional hearings on Waco should address if the inquiry were to be complete. (In fact, this aspect was hardly considered at all in the very cursory examinations of the Waco affair that were conducted.)
They pointed out that some members of Congress wanted to divert attention from the truth about Waco to the “militia” bogeyman, whereas others—primarily Republicans—hoped to use the hearings to embarrass the Democratic Clinton administration.
Melton and Crinter said:“It will be disappointing if the purpose of the hearings is lost in the netherworld of American politics, especially as new information surfaces on what occurred behind the scenes before the Davidian compound went up in flames.” Here was the big question, according to the authors:“What exactly was the rationale for the siege, and who helped to script it?”
The authors explored, in some detail, the conflict within the FBI over the precise approach to be utilized in dealing with the Branch Davidians, noting, in particular, the problems that faced the FBI’s Peter Smerick (referenced above) and the failure by the authorities to attempt to understand Koresh’s religious theology and how it would impact the standoff—a matter that the authors viewed as a major factor that was explicitly ignored.The authors then went on to suggest that:
Another area for the hearings to explore is law enforcement’s connection to outside “experts” with axes to grind. In this case, the FBI had been prepared for this moment by the anti-cult movement, whose ideals are embodied in the Cult Awareness Network (CAN) and the American Family Foundation.
For years, these organizations have presented their views on mind control and manipulation to anyone who would listen, including some within the FBI. Integral to this perspective is the charge of cult preparedness for mass suicide. During Waco, the FBI relied heavily on an anonymously written “white paper” that summarized this view. Agent Jamar, in the first congressional hearings on Waco, empha- sized its “usefulness” in the weeks before the fire.
Another person who played a role in the Davidian drama was Rick Ross, who is listed as a“cult expert” and self- described “deprogrammer” in the government’s official report on Waco. Ross told the FBI he “would willingly aid law enforcement in an attempt to destroy a cult.”
Nancy Ammerman, professor of sociology at Emory University, in her addendum to the government’s report, says that Ross was “closely involved with both the BATF and FBI,” supplying the ATF with the “name of an ex-member he believed would have important strategic information.” Ross recently said in a deposition that he “acted as a liaison between BATF and David Block,” a Davidian who turned against the group when he was “deprogrammed” by Ross in 1992. According to the Treasury report, the information Block provided was decisive in the BATF”s decision to storm the Davidian complex instead of serving a warrant in the usual way. No one seems to have questioned whether Block was an objective or reliable witness.
Dean Kelley, counselor on religious liberty to the National Council of Churches, has written that it “[is a mistake] to insist that CAN did not contribute to the animus against Koresh and his followers when Ross and other cult opponents were doing their best to advance their views on the subject to the federal authorities, the media, and anyone who would listen.”
In light of the course the FBI followed, why did the federal authorities tend to put more faith in “cult experts” than in credentialed authorities in religious studies? These questions have not been fully investigated. The congressional hearings, if they are to be worthwhile and revealing, must focus on answering them.
That the authors acknowledged the role of the so-called Cult Awareness Network (CAN) and the American Family Foundation (AFF) is political dynamite that should have thrust the ADL’s less widely known role in Waco right into the limelight.
Although the authors did not mention the ADL by name—but undoubtedly they were aware of its existence—the fact is that both CAN and AFF had long-standing intimate ties to the ADL and even shared their offices with the ADL.
In 1974, a long-time ADL functionary, Rabbi Maurice Davis, found- ed Citizens Engaged in Reuniting Families (CERF), a deprogrammers’ front which later merged into the American Family Foundation and the Cult Awareness Network.
The ADL then established a full-time anti-cult center, housed at the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the B’nai B’rith. The Cult Center of B’nai B’rith maintained joint offices with the Cult Awareness Network. In this way, the ADL established formal, ongoing links to the AFF/CAN, which continue through to the present.
And what is all the more intriguing about Rabbi Davis—as we noted earlier in these pages—is the rabbi’s own long-time ties to the CIA’s infamous MK-ULTRA mind-control experiments, beginning in the 1950’s, that included the use of LSD and other mind-altering drugs.
Clearly, the murders of innocent men, women and children at Waco were directly the responsibility of the federal law enforcement officers who carried out the attack. But the evidence shows that the dirty hand of the ADL was at work behind the scenes.
