V1N20 - SEPTEMBER 2, 1999

WACO INFORMATION CONTINUES TO SURFACE

By. John Culbertson

There are more developments in the Waco case. Reports
are circulating that Federal Marshals have served search
warrants on the Federal Bureau of investigation Headquarters
in Washington and have seized additional unseen until now
evidence regarding the FBI's conduct at Waco.

In another development the Justice Department is chal-
lenging a federal judge's authority to take control of
evidence under the control of the Texas Department of Public
Safety (DPS), despite the fact that DPS has filed a motion
requesting that he do so.

MILITARY DOCUMENTS DESTROYED

FRONTLINE has obtained documents that show yet another
component of the puzzle that we see unfolding about us.
Documents that have been obtained by FRONTLINE show that the
US Military destroyed "all files" concerning the support
mission at Waco on or about October 1, 1994 about a year and
a half after the fire that destroyed the Davidian compound
and almost a year before Congressional hearings into the
series of events now characterized as Waco. In other words
important files were discovered during the course of a
Congressional investigation.

The document, a United States Army Special Forces
Command "Staff Action Summary Sheet" on the subject of the
"DISPOSITION OF FILES REGARDING USASFC COUNTERDRUG SUPPORT
IN WACO. TEXAS" is dated November 21, 1994 is a routine
enough report. DOCUMENT CAN BE SEEN AT fps1999.webjump.com

But the routine nature changes when one discovers in
item 2 "DISCUSSION" that "All files concerning this mission
support have been destroyed on or about 1 October, 1994."

FRONTLINE contacted military affairs expert Lt. Col.
Roger Charles (USMC Ret.) who inspected the document and
talked to FRONTLINE regarding the normal disposition of
documents within the US military system. When asked about
the normal procedures for the handling of files particularly
ones regarding actual missions, Charles replied: "It is very
unusual (to destroy documents) particularly in a high pro-
file case, even routine documents are supposed to be re-
tained for 2 years."

Charles went on to characterize the destruction of the
documents as a "Flagrant violation of regulations and says
very loudly that someone was very concerned about something
that would happen later."

It is clear that an order originated somewhere to cause
the destruction of the files. By doing so during the course
of an official investigation by Congressional committees
into the actions taken at Waco, the destruction of these
files in all likelihood constitutes obstruction of justice.

SPECIAL FORCES INVOLVEMENT

Other information that can be gleaned from this docu-
ment include the fact that the mission originated in Febru-
ary of 1993, and was carried out by Joint Task Force Six and
the 3rd Special Forces Group.

According to the US Army Joint Task force Six can be
described as follows: "Joint Task Force Six (JTF-6), located
at Biggs Army Airfield, Fort Bliss, Texas, is assigned to
U.S. Atlantic Command, under the operational control of the
U.S. Forces Command. JTF-6 is a multi-service command com-
prised of approximately 159 soldiers, sailors, Marines,
airmen, and civilians employees. JTF-6's role in the coun-
terdrug effort is articulated in its mission statement: JTF-
6 synchronizes and integrates DOD operational, technologi-
cal, training and intelligence support to domestic law
enforcement agencies' counterdrug efforts in the continental
United States to reduce the availability of illegal drugs in
the United States. "

3rd Special Forces Group is headquartered at Ft.
Bragg, North Carolina and like most Special Operations
groups the Army has little comment regarding these opera-
tional units. Other documents support the involvement of
forces from Ft. Bragg in the pre raid planning activities
and training. This raises questions as to just what was the
involvement of military units in the entire operation from
pre-raid planning all the way through the final assault and
deadly fire. The destruction of evidence in contravention
of established procedures and records is troubling to say
the least.

The very fact that Special Forces command had a concern
as to the disposition of files regarding the operation
raises troubling questions regarding the actual involvement
of the US Military at Waco. Because the US Military acts
only at the request and pleasure of civilian control, ques-
tions regarding the entire operation must focus on the
Department of Justice, Treasury and with the Administration.
There are currently discussions in Washington on forming a
joint House-Senate Committee to investigate the activities
of all parties involved in the events at the Davidian com-
pound in Waco.

Formation of an independent investigative body to fully
explore the evidence and report to the American people on
the conduct of their government is a needed first step in
restoring the credibility of Federal Law Enforcement. There
is no doubt that recent developments have severely damaged
the reputation of Federal Law Enforcement agencies and only
clear, concise and accurate accounting will restore the
faith I the system required in order for Federal agencies to
be truly effective.

Current reform efforts such as the Federal Protective
Service Reform Act of 1999 (HR 809) provide a good model of
legislative control, effective identification of the mission
and reasonable authority with which to carry the mission
out. In addition clear lines of authority are established
that will increase the ability of Congress to effectively
maintain oversight and thus hopefully reduce future debacles
such as the one which confronts the country currently.
