- The death of Waco FLIR expert Carlos Ghigliotti has been ruled a
heart attack. The official conclusion was released on May 11, just one day after the
release of the official Waco-FLIR report by the not-independent firm Vector Data Systems,
which concluded that rapid-flashes on the 1993 Waco FLIR are reflections off debris, not
gunshots (see why they're gunshots

- Witnesses for plaintiffs suing the government for wrongful death
in Waco, TX, have had a bad spring:
- Dr. Zegel: ALMOST DIED (March) FLIR expert - blood poisoning Dr.
Allard: ALMOST DIED (March) FLIR expert - heart attack Ghigliotti: DIED (March-April?)

- The following quotes indicate that death by "heart
attack" is a common manifestation of chemical assassination:
- ...in the case of individual assassinations or low-level attacks,
the possibility of disguising the cause of death. In Livingstone's words: "A very
high index of suspicion would be necessary for a medical examiner to consider the
possibility that an apparent heart-attack or stroke victim died as the result of being
infected with cobra venom, shellfish toxin, pure nicotine, or any of dozens of other
chemical or biological poisons" ...

- John Henry describes what happens to the target next - "He
feels immensely short of breath, runs towards an open window and usually collapses and
dies with a convulsion on the way there." Such technology was unknown in the West.
The dead were often diagnosed as having suffered a heart attack.
- Immediately after May's death, Raymond Lavas, Ted Gunderson's
former forensic's expert, (and a former protege of Robert Maheu according to Michael
Riconociuto) wrote a letter to one of Michael's friends, expressing his professional
opinion about the death of Michael May. A copy of that letter was faxed to me and the
following excerpts quickly captured my attention:
- "... I don't understand why it's going to take two weeks to
determine May's cause of death. Did you know that certain chemical assassination methods
will have been evaporated out of the body by that time?
- "Then, the cause of death would be ruled as natural, since
the chemical agents are the primary cause that result in a secondary action such as heart
failure, kidney or liver damage, etc.
- "Some examples of these agents include BZ2, Ricin,
Tropodotoxin, shellfish toxia and a variety of methlamine based neurotoxinsthat affect the
central nervous system and cause failure of one or more organs in the human body.
- "Some, if not most of these toxins are solvent based [DMSO]
and may be introduced in minute quantities through the skin. Their effect [may] vary and
some toxins take weeks to months to take effect. Others take moments to damage the nervous
system, then evaporate within hours.
- "Unless the body is immediately refrigerated, the toxins are
quickly evaporated, leaving only one or two parts per million in quantity. Unless there
are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, a trained forensic expert would never
detect any traces of the toxin.

- NERVE AGENTS: Agents that quickly disrupt the nervous system by
binding to enzymes critical to nerve functions, causing convulsions and/or paralysis. Must
be ingested, inhaled, and absorbed through the skin. Very low does cause a running nose,
contraction of the pupil of the eye, and difficulty in visual coordination. Moderate doses
constrict the bronchi, cause a feeling of pressure in the chest, and weaken the skeletal
muscles and cause filibration. Large doses cause death by respiratory or heart failure.
(Can be absorbed through inhalation or skin contact.) Reaction normally occurs in 1-2
minutes. Death from lethal doses occurs within minutes, but artificial respiration can
help and atropine and the oximes act as antidotes. The most toxic nerve agents kill with a
dosage of only 10 milligrams be minute per cubic meter, versus 400 for less lethal gases.
Recovery is normally quick, if it occurs at all, but permanent brain damage can occur: ...

- There was also Allan Francovich, who made a documentary film, The
Maltese Double Cross, which presents Jaafar as an unwitting bomb carrier with ties to the
DEA and CIA. Showings of the film in Britain were canceled under threat of lawsuits, and
venues burglarized or attacked with arson. ... Francovich said he had learned that five
CIA operatives had been sent to London and Cyprus to discredit the film while it was being
made, that his office phones were tapped, and staff cars sabotaged, and that one of his
researchers narrowly escaped an attempt to force his vehicle into the path of an oncoming
truck. Lockerbie investigators went so far as to ask the FBI to investigate the film. The
Bureau later issued a highly derogatory opinion of it. ... On April 17, 1997, Allan
Francovich suddenly died of a heart attack at age 56, upon arrival at Houston Airport.

- Death Of FLIR Expert A Major Setback In Waco Trial
- WACO, Texas (AP) νΣ A lawyer representing surviving Branch
Davidians in a wrongful-death lawsuit says the death of an infrared expert who contended
that shots were fired by the government during the Waco siege is a major setback in the
- "We're not giving up, but I don't know how we'll replace
Carlos Ghigliotti,'' said attorney Mike Caddell.
- Ghigliotti was hired last fall by the House Government Reform
Committee to review an FBI infrared videotape taken on the final day of the Branch
Davidian siege in 1993.
- He told The Washington Post that he had determined that repeated
flashes on the video came from government gunfire.
- Police found Ghigliotti's decomposed body at his office at
Infrared Technologies Corp. in Laurel, Md., on April 28 after a building manager became
concerned that the analyst had not been seen for several weeks. A preliminary autopsy
report showed the 42-year-old died of a heart attack.
- The plaintiffs had already notified the federal court that they
planned to use Ghigliotti as an expert witness in the trial, set to begin June 19 in Waco.
- Caddell said he will take the depositions of British infrared
experts at Vector Data Systems, who were among those who conducted a March 19 field test
at Fort Hood.
- By comparing the simulation to videotapes from the last day of
the siege, Vector found that the 1993 flashes were caused by reflections off metal and
- "We were unable to identify any gunfire, either from
government forces or from Davidians, from either the (infrared tapes) or other collateral
imagery available to us,'' their report stated.
- Government officials have said no one on their side fired any
shots on April 19, 1993, the day that a federal tear-gas assault ended in a fire that
destroyed the compound. More than 80 sect members, including leader David Koresh, were
