Waco: Rules of Engagement (1997)
    by Jon Osborne, Miss Liberty's Guide to Film and Video, 2001
"If you ever wondered what actually happened in Waco, why and how the government was able to kill dozens of people who had never been convicted of anything, watch this film. Step by step, the government's version of the story is unraveled, and in its place is left a holocaust that can only be attributed to an incredible abuse of state power."
Waco: The Rules of Engagement (1997), by Stephen W. Carson
"This documentary covers the events of February 28-April 19, 1993 at Waco, Texas that resulted in a total of eighty-six deaths. Called the Waco Siege or Waco Massacre, it is an amazing illustration of the principle that every command and regulation of the state is backed up by deadly force."
