Waco: The Rules of Engagement is
the first full-length documentary film to present the complete
picture of the series of events outside Waco, Texas during
1993 that resulted in the shooting of 4 federal agents and
the deaths of 86 men, women, and children of the Branch Davidian
Rules of Engagement is a highly detailed
examination of the interaction between David Koresh, his
members, and Federal Law Enforcement. It shows how the FBI misled the
public and American political leaders in order to focus overwhelming
force on a group whose diversity of race, national origin, and apocalyptic
religious beliefs made its members easy targets for lethal abuse of civil
and human rights.
Gripping and deeply thought provoking, the
film provides America with something it truly needs - an opportunity
to review the historical record of events at Waco. The findings
raise doubts about the FBI's version of the story and their
larger role in similar instances of law enforcement.
