"In both the Waco TV documentaries, extensive analysis was made of the
taped records of recurring images of heat sources at the rear of the
building. According to the Pentagon's former expert on FLIR analysis,
Dr. Edward Allard, and specialists hired by CBS's 60 Minutes, they are
evidence of government gunfire.

"These flashes occur as the fire begins; leading researchers suggest that
they are evidence of unidentified government agents, initially, shooting
fleeing Davidians and then entering the building in a co-ordinated
'dynamic entry.' At least five Davidians were found shot dead in this
location. Adding weight to the allegations is the fact that the only
surviving Davidians were those who exited from the front of the building."

"Four separate major investigations are now underway: Danforth's special
counsel's office, the Texas DPS; the House Government Reform Committee
(who plan to hold hearings on the handling of the siege); and a Davidian
'wrongful death' lawsuit."
