The Branch Davidian cult led by the tormented David Koresh in Waco, TX, will long be remembered for the sad, fiery way that its members lost their lives in 1993. When negotiations with the FBI and other authorities stalled, chaos reigned. This program features interviews with many of the federal government officials who were responsible for making the critical decisions that might have peacefully ended the standoff. Attorney General Janet Reno and others were outraged not just by the attack on the compound, but also by the early attempts to cover up what actually happened.
