Some chapters pay attention to terrorist assaults that truly came about, others speculate concerning the probabilities of an assault happening someday sooner or later, akin to the chapters at the Olympic video games, Aviation or Rail defense. whilst percentages instead of a selected occasion are mentioned, the authors of those chapters draw the eye of the reader in the direction of an identical direction—the reasoning, the particular occasion and the reaction that followed.

Example text

On April 15, 1993, the HRT advised that “negotiations were at an impasse” (Danforth, 2000). After a total of 41 demands of which 26 were met throughout the standoff, the FBI and attorney general Janet Reno agreed to try and draw the Branch Davidians out of the compound. The action took place on April 19, 1993. Using tanks, the FBI approached the compound and smashed into the structured walls. While doing this, the tanks emitted a CS, orthochlorobenzylidenemalononitrile, gas. The idea was to have the gas draw the followers out of the compound but would not be harmful to children.

Controversy Surrounding the Waco Standoff There are numerous criticisms of the government’s handling of the raid on the Mt. Carmel compound, the most pronounced of which are the use of CS gas and pyrotechnic devices, the conception of the Branch Davidians as cult members and lack of emphasis on the religious and millenarian nature of the group, and the lack of coherent communication between government officials and offices. The number one criticism that resonates throughout the literature on Waco is the appropriateness of the use of CS gas and pyrotechnic rounds on the compound, especially considering the large number of children known to be housed in the complex.
