WACO REVISITED--HISTORY THAT I WASN'T AWARE OF UNTIL TODAY

During the process of researching for a new book, Jack Cashill stumbled across some rather interesting--and shocking--information about the Waco siege of 14 years ago--today. The specific information, Cashill thinks, was held back by the Clinton Administration and kept from the MSM so that even figures like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson weren't aware of it.

Either way, it begs the question: Did Sharpton, Jackson, and the MSM not know about this or were they protecting Clinton from what would be a massive backlash in the black community? You decide. From Cashill:

"I refer here specifically to the tank assault on the Mount Carmel community in Waco on April 19, 1993.

Sharpton fans might be thinking, “You’re confusing me. What does the death of all those right wing peckerwoods have to do with the Reverend?”

Quite a bit, actually. Twenty-seven of the seventy-four peckerwoods incinerated at Waco were black, ages six to sixty-one. In fact, more than half of those gun-toting, rednecks were minority rednecks, thirty-nine out of seventy-four to be precise, six of them Hispanic, six of Asian descent.

Truth be told, Waco represented the single greatest organized--if largely unwitting--slaughter of black people on American soil since the Battle of Fort Pillow in 1864.

And no, this is not something I read on the Internet. I found a verifiable list of the dead, broken out by age and ethnicity, and counted them. The FBI had given the Branch Davidians video cameras. The Clinton White House knew who was in the buildings. So, almost assuredly, did the major media."

I don't know about you but I'd love to hear Sharpton and Jackson comment on this revelation. After all, they (and the msm) had plenty to say about Don Imus' comment. I found this from Jet Magazine. If true, they had to know.

Jack Cashill's latest article deals with the Waco incident--read it here.
