The story that shocked the world.
On February 28, 1993, the eyes of the world suddenly converged on Mount Carmel, a small religious community just outside Waco, Texas, just after the longest gun battle in U.S. law enforcement history left four ATF agents and six members of a religious sect dead and dozens more wounded. 51 days later, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel, killing the remaining 76 men, women and children inside.
What transpired over those 51 days remains one of the most misunderstood stories in American history. “Waco” has come to evoke different ideas to different people – government recklessness, religious fanaticism, conspiracy theories, and cover-ups. But what really happened at Waco? Almost 25 years later, it is likely that most everything you know about this event is a lie.
