Tear gas = cyanide ??  The FBI set the fire ??  I'm not very
interested in David Lomba's "surmises."  I'm no fan of the FBI, but
neither am I a fan of wackos such as Waco's; put either type in
charge and you get something like facism.

I also think Lomba and company give the FBI far too much credit for

And Greg, if you want to send stuff like this to marxism-list, it

you sent it, what you think about it, or something.  Otherwise, it
doesn't have context.  Of course, it did elicit this response.  Is

With respect and admiration I commend the Los Angeles Times and the
Sacramento Bee newspapers for printing Glenn F. Bunting's article,
"How  FBI used lethal gas to 'save' Waco children" (in Sacto. Bee;
Forum, June  11), detailing the FBI's application of poison ("tear")

Director Louis  Freeh have studied the works of the Masters, Heinrich
Himmler and Adolph  Eichmann, and thus have learned a thing or two
about the use of corrosive  and suffocating gases in confined spaces.
