“Waco: The Rules of Engagement”
Siskel & Ebert from 1997
On this day in 1993, just a few months Into the Clinton administration, the compound of a religious community caught fire during an extended siege killing seventy six people including over two dozen children.
The first thing Bill Clinton did after he won the 1992 election – even before he took office – was to order the Little Rock ATF to make a case against the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.
It’s refreshing to see Siskel & Ebert, popular movie reviewers, take a clear stand on behalf of the victims of government criminality.
It’s a remarkable film and deserves a wide viewing – even 20- years later.
