Speaking of Waco…Here Are Some Essential Sources

In terms of perspectives on the 1993 Waco disaster I would particularly recommend the following in order for anyone who wants to get up to speed on what went on, right and wrong.

The first chapter of Why Waco is available on-line: https://www.ucpress.edu/book.php?isbn=9780520208995 but the rest of the book gives the whole story. Highly recommend as a start.

In terms of the topic more generally there is the highly perceptive New Yorker piece by Malcom Gladwell. That was a major breakthrough and very important: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/03/31/sacred-and-profane-4.

C-Span also has my 1995 testimony before Congress with Dr. Philip Arnold. We are on throughout this link and at the end I am given an open mike to lay out the case as we see it: https://www.c-span.org/video/?66441-1/waco-investigation-day-5-part-3&start=6192&transcriptQuery=hearings

Here is a tape I made of  “The Last Words of David Koresh,” which is quite important for understanding the last three days before the FBI assault with CS-Gas on April 19th.  It is a large file but here is the Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4eg5bdpooeytnfg/LastWords%20Koresh.mp3?dl=0

Finally, if you have read all these you should work through this one: “Waco After 25 Years: Getting the Facts Straight.”
