Authoratative account of the events of Waco. While television pulls on all emotions and provides little information, the power of books are the facts, and power of the book is what Moore uses to make those facts clear. All students should read this book as a case study of oppression. When we criticize Iraq for using CS gas or the use of British helicopters in Northern Ireland, or tanks in Tianamen Square, we should know our government used the same equipment in Waco, Texas against a Church of children. Powerful book which will make you mad at how your tax dollars are spent by Federal agencies such as the ATF and FBI. The use of helicopters was made possible by the war on drugs which Moore proves, causing an American, such as myself to wonder, has the war on drugs gone too far? And what about guns? Do we have the right to defend ourselves from an abusive and deadly government agent?
