The Burial Gallery
|This monument on the grounds of the old Mt. Carmel Center was erected by the Northeast Texas Regional Militia of Texarkana, Texas. It reads, "Mount Carmel Center: On February 28, 1993 a church and its members known as the Branch Davidians came under attack by ATF and FBI agents. For 51 days the Davidians and their leader, David Koresh, stood proudly. On April 19, 1993 the Davidians and their church were burned to the ground. 82 people perished during the seige. 18 were children 10 years old or younger." And there follows a list of 82 known dead Davidians.|
There have been many attempts to deny or sanitize the Waco Holocaust, beginning with the long stream of official government reports justifying, sanitizing, modifying, and nullifying the crimes that were committed there.
The mass media corporations, having their own part in the atrocity, also produced a stream of "documentaries" to justify and sanitize the extermination of these people. The effort is ongoing. We have exposed some of them here. Waco "Documentary" Is A Hoax! (12,000 word review and copy of script)
Since the first reports of the raid on the Mt. Carmel Center in Waco, a multi-pronged program has been in place to vilify and dehumanize the Branch Davidians, to recast the events of those days, to re-invent the facts, and to reduce to zero all public curiosity and concern for the Davidians. Because those efforts failed to staunch the outrage in America and the rest of the world, new efforts at protest neutralization were necessary.
One of the primary such efforts was of course the 1994 criminal trial of some of the survivors. As America is sadly learning, the court system can get almost any result it wants from a trial, even when the jury disagrees with the prosecution, as it did in this case. The jury foreman stated publicly after the trial, "We jurors said from the beginning that we had the wrong people on trial." Despite the common expectation that the jury's verdict would prevail at trial, some Davidians were sentenced to 40 years in prison, and the sentences were upheld on appeal.
One of these efforts is "Waco: The Rules of Engagement." The Museum presents an in-depth analysis of the techniques used in this video, and makes available to the Museum public a script of the full text of the production. For some, this may serve as a primer on some of the modern techniques of disinformation and psychological warfare.
The cover-up of the Waco Holocaust and events of April 19, 1993 could never have been sustained without the improbable stories told by the survivors.
Suppose you were a surviving Branch Davidian or family member and you had voluminous and incontestable evidence your family and friends were murdered with malice aforethought and their bodies desecrated in an attempt to cover up the crime.
Would you file a lawsuit claiming your womenfolk and children (a) died by accident, (b) committed suicide, (c) were murdered by other Davidians? Would you claim your dead friends and relatives set the Mt. Carmel Center on fire ? Would you demand that the US taxpayers, who took no part in the planning and execution of the murders, pay you money while the real murderers continued to walk free?
That's what Branch Davidian survivors and family members have done.
The US wants the American public to come to "closure" on the Waco Holocaust. And what better way to do this than to show that surviving Davidian Clive Doyle and the other Davidians have come to closure? To this end, Clive and a number of "patriots" have stepped forward with volunteer labor and donated materials to build a new Davidian church on the old killing fields — while the murderers continue to run our country.
Read about the government's vital and spooky interest in Koresh's religious doctrines. Carol Valentine interviews Andrew X98.
Read about the visit of Museum supporters to the St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Great Falls, Virginia, where FBI Director Louis Freeh, along with accused FBI spy Robert P. Hanssen, are parishioners. Freeh, of course, has been shielding the murderers of the Branch Davidians since his appointment in 1993. Do Christ's words, or Freeh's, set the standards for St. Catherine's? Read about what happened and judge for yourself.
This information — documenting the FBI mutilation/murder of eight-year-old Melissa Morrison — was hand-delivered to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III as he was boarding the elevator in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, upon the occasion of his Senate confirmation hearing on July 30, 2001. He can't say he does not know.
U.S. Senate pretends to investigate the FBI, but focuses on trifles. This August 13, 2001
letter from the Curator of the Museum, sent to each of the 100 senators, dares them to investigate
a real outrage: The FBI's mutilation/murder of eight-year-old Melissa Morrison during the
Waco Holocaust. The Curator urges the senators to call Smithsonian Institution anthropology
and forensic experts, Dr. Douglas Ubelaker and Dr. Douglas Owsley, to testify under oath.
Ubelaker and Owsley examined Melissa's body during her autopsy, but failed to address this key
question: Did Melissa die as a result of being mutilated, or did her killers mutilate her
body after her death? It's their job to address questions like this.
