3/26/21 Jim Bovard on the Government Cover-Up of the Waco Massacre

Scott talks to Jim Bovard about the Waco massacre, and especially the second investigation into the government’s actions, led by Senator John Danforth in 1999. After new evidence emerged that contradicted the official government story, another investigation was conducted, but Bovard says that its mission all along was really just to whitewash the government’s malfeasance. Danforth was a moderate Republican and a darling of the establishment, who had his eyes on the vice presidency in the Bush administration. He did his cover-up job effectively, as Bovard outlines in a new piece; the horrific true story of the massacre of the Davidians has only come out slowly over the years.
