| Great show, I wish I knew how truthful it really is
I read a few reviews of this series, and some people seem to say that the facts have been accurately portrayed. If so, not only were ATF and FBI irresponsible, but also erratic, spiteful, deplorable on every step and angle.

Why have a negotiator in charge if it was to systematically undermine him and renege on every deal he made?

I read that oh yeah Koresh did abuse young girls so he deserved it etc... For starters, that fact does not seem unequivocally established, looks like the ATF/FBI have tampered a tad with reality to match their best interest, and controlled the story-telling, at least partially. Needed to cover their backs. "If you want to put down your dog, blame it on rabies" says an old french adage.

Whatever the guy did, don't go all guns blazing. Catch him and try him.

I think everyone (pro or anti-Koresh) who watches the show will be appalled by the way they handled things. But then again, did the story really happen this way?
