Don't forget, the plaintiffs (Waco survivors and heirs) have lawyers
as well. The test was originally proposed by the plaintiffs and the
terms were agreed to by them. I believe they also agreed upon the firm

with experience in this kind of analysis have military or law enforcement
ties because those groups are the main users of this technology).
