Waco: The Rules of Engagement the much ballyhooed "documentary" on Waco, is a hoax. It is an effort to muffle protest over Waco under the guise of protest and opposition.Thus begins Carol Valentine's review of the video. The full text of the review is available through the following links:
It hides the most damaging truths, misdirects attention to false issues, neutralizes outrage at the massacre, and chills sympathy for the victims. It forwards murder charges based on weak evidence; once the charges are discredited, the public will be inoculated against considering real evidence that the Davidians were murdered.

Much of the content of WTROE is public domain and cannot be copyrighted by the video's producers or anyone else. The video's producers may claim a copyright on the text of the personal interviews done for WTROE and the narrator's words.
However, given the subject matter of the video and its intent as revealed by the this review, the Museum holds that the public has an overriding interest in having the full text available for examination, outside the bewildering stew pot of imagery presented in the video. Therefore, the Museum makes available the full script of the Waco: The Rules of Engagement. [Readers are advised that different versions of the video may exist.]

Many people who distrust the mainstream media have turned to alternate news sources, some of which are Internet based. Unfortunately, many of these alternate sources of news simply promote an alternate series of lies. These alternate lies are of course dressed up as "exposés." But you can easily tell the phonies from the real thing. The information in the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum is an acid test.
Does your news source promote Mike McNulty's video, Waco: The Rules of Engagement or wring its hands because the Davidian law suit against the government failed? (See Waco Documentary Is A Hoax! and Waco Suits for Waco Suckers.) Does your alternate news source carry promotional pieces about rebuilding the Davidian church in Waco and mouth nice words about "healing"? (See The Cover-up Church.)
Remember, since ancient times, inquiries into questionable deaths have started with the bodies of the victims. If your news source won't give you an honest and full account of the forensic information on Waco, or if it does not have a link to the Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum ... your alternate news has failed a fundamental acid test.
