I read this book in hopes of confirming my susspicions of Bill Clinton and his evil ways. The book did not delve into Clinton's ruthlessness but did make mention of my suspicions on page 122 when Reives talked about Clinton wanting to pass a new wave of gun controls only months afterwards. I felt that it was ironic that this event occurred just in time for the gun control to be presented. Clinton probably thought that when he arrested the whacos from waco he would show the country that these were 'dangerous' people and that we need to take everyones guns away in order to have a safe country 'Just like Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union'. My suspicions, I believe, were validated when Hillary tried to pass her communist health care program. The same thing happened. They sued most of the major health care laboratories in order to 'prove that our health care is corrupt' and then got on tv and tried to sell us socialism. So even though I think that Vernon Howell 'David Koresh' was the leader of an evil cult, I still disagree with what the government did by attacking a group that had no former weapons charges and was not known to be dangerous. They could have planned this much better and saved a lot of lives. So in conclusion I think that they were both wrong. David Koresh was just another sex addict taking advantage of his flock and the government was wrong for their beligerant attack on American citizens.
