Why the Waco Holocaust Matters
|Among those who died during the Waco Holocaust, Melissa Morrison, age 6 at death. Her remains were identified as Mt. Carmel Doe 74.|
When barbarities are practiced by a government, civilized people must stand up and say STOP! lest the whole society be consumed by barbarism. Over the cornice of the US Supreme Court these words are etched:
To fair-minded Americans, those words apply to both the Branch Davidians and their murderers.
As a society, we do not let murderers go free, for experience shows they will murder again. Under a system of equal justice, when physical and circumstantial evidence indicates a person has committed a crime, he or she is indicted and brought before a jury. So it should be: one rule of law for all.
The American Revolution specifically rejected the concept of the Divine Right of Kings. The American revolutionaries believed that legitimate political power arose from each and every individual person, and was delegated by them to government. The government was to be a servant of the people. Under this system, servants of the people (the government) have no Divine Right to murder their employers (the citizens).
Thomas Jefferson said that the tree of liberty is nourished by the blood of tyrants and the blood of patriots. We citizens of the US will not be intimidated into silence or acquiescence. We are the heirs of the American Revolution.
By this crime, the US government proclaimed itself to be the enemy of the people. When the executive branch of government turns to murdering the citizens, what redress do the citizens have? Who will arrest and try a murderous general, and who will arrest and try a murderous attorney general?
Congress could have taken a number of immediate remedial actions. It could have conducted an honest, vigorous investigation. It could have immediately reduced funding to the agencies involved by the amount spent. It could have disbanded the units involved, fired the personnel, and prohibited them evermore from federal benefits and employment. It could have impeached the military and civilian officials involved; it could have seen that a Special Prosecutor was appointed, and vigorous prosecutions conducted.
When the Congressional hearings on Waco took place in the summer of 1995, many Americans hoped that an honest investigation would be done. But Congress suppressed the evidence and became accessories to the crime.
For less evidence than you see on these pages, ordinary people are convicted and sentenced to death. Years after the atrocity, not one of the murderers has been indicted. Americans no longer live under the rule of law.
Look at the evidence against the US military and law enforcement. We have documented their outrageous lies. We have the evidence of their murders. We have the autopsy reports, we have photos of the twisted bodies, of the tortured, gassed, mutilated, and burned.
Righteous people of the world: Look! You are the jury. Look at our shame!
