These two photos, one from a video tape, the other from a film camera, show the first moments of the BATF raid at the Mt. Carmel church. Note the bullet holes in the walls of the church.

None of the glass in any of the vehicles the BATF are hiding behind show any signs of being cracked or broken.

Now, examine this photo.

The wounded BATF man has been tentatively identified as BATF gent who shot himself in the leg while climbing a ladder. Note that he is being assisted from the area in full view of the upper floor windows of the church, apparently unconcerned with the possibility of gunfire from the occupants of the church.

The vehicle at the right is the horse trailer in which the BATF agents arrived for the raid. The top of it is canvas. It also shows no signs of any bullet holes, even though the Branch Davidians, had the been so inclined, would have been well advised to shoot through it to the BATF agents inside, and later, hiding behind.

The public has been told that the members of the church had .50 caliber rifles. Had they used them, the cars and trucks would have not stopped the bullets and there would be bullet holes on the sides of the vehicles facing the cameras where the rounds exited.

In short, there is nothing in these photos to support the suggestion that the members of the church were actually firing on the BATF at this point in the raid, let alone that the members of the church fired first.

NEW! The following two photos are closeups of the bullet holes in the front door of the church. Note the snoothness of the edges, indicating that the bullets that made all these holes were traveling from the outside in, i.e. the BATF was shooting into the church but nobody was shooting out.

This is the remains of the inventory of guns kept at the church after the fatal fire. Note that the guns are stacked neatly against the wall, which means they were not being used to shoot at the FBI and BATF.


Contrary to the image of a dangerous gun nut put out in the media in an effort to justify the burning of the church, official BATF records prove that David Koresch was rather harmless, so much so that the BATF agents invited him to go shooting with them just 9 days before they raided the church. Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

Here is the official BATF report.

It turns out that Koresch was not fooled by ther undercover BATF. During his 911 phone call as the BATF pumped lead into the church, Koresch referred to one of the men as an agent.

One of those "dangerous crazed gun weilding Christians" who so abused the BATF.
