Did Hillary call the shots at Waco?

Hillary screams "Why aren't I 50 points ahead?"
An interesting look back raises questions about Hillary Clinton’s degree of involvement in the 1993 Waco disaster.

As Hillary Rodham Clinton looks ahead to the Nov. 8 election that could put her in back in the White House, an attorney and Second Amendment scholar has taken an alarming look back at the 1993 Branch Davidian incident in Waco, and now suggests that Clinton may have had more to do with that debacle than was previously known.

Writing in the American Thinker, attorney David Hardy, who spoke in September at the annual Gun Rights Policy Conference in Tampa, puts it bluntly:

“Many politicians have a skeleton in their closet. Hillary Clinton has a cemetery, with a sign reading ‘Waco.’”

According to Hardy, “After the tragic debacle, the Clinton administration claimed that Attorney General Janet Reno had been solely responsible for the final assault. There had been no White House input during the siege, and at the end, President Clinton only acquiesced in a decision Reno had made.

“Twenty-three years later,” he adds, “there are substantial reasons to doubt the truth of these claims. The evidence is strong that the Clinton White House was calling the shots, and that Hillary played a prominent role.”

And he asks this question: “Did Hillary call the shots at Waco?”

For a lot of people, references to Waco do not mean much, but for critics of the Bill Clinton administration, which rode into office in 1993 touting a “two for one” package with Hillary being part of a team. But nobody elected a team.

Millennials, upon whose votes Hillary is depending, were hardly old enough to pay attention to the images of a burning compound on the nightly news, if they had even been born, yet. But for many in the firearms community, especially critics of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Waco is not just the name of a city in Texas, but a lightning rod for debate.

The FBI took over as the initial incident, which cost four ATF agents and six Branch Davidians their lives, became a standoff. It ended when federal agents moved in and the compound went up in flames, killing 74 people including more than 20 children.

Conspiracy theorists have had many a field day over what “really happened” at Waco, and what many believe happened. Hardy doesn’t wear a tinfoil hat, nor does he dabble in fantasy.

He has asked a question, offered a conclusion and now it will be up to readers to decide whether his assessment has any validity.
