For those following the Waco gunfire controversy, the Dallas Morning
News today includes the complete text of the report by Vector Data
Systems, a British military contractor specializing in image analysis.

The text is at, although
it does not include the pictures. This makes it hard to evaluate the
material, as the report cites the pictures extensively to illustrate

VDS concluded that the flashes seen on the Waco infrared tapes were
due to reflections of sunlight and heat from the tanks, plus blowing
debris, which was essentially the same explanation originally offered
by the government. They saw no gunfire.
