"Break through the walls of mount Carmel. Inside the compound, David thibodeau staggers down the hallway and threw a billowing cloud of white gas. His face is covered with a gas mask, but it still feels hard to breathe. He wonders if the filter is already running out. He checks the women's quarters to see if any children are still inside. The room is eerily empty. He hopes they're all safe in the concrete shelter and that none of them have fallen into the FBI's hands. Thibodeau reaches the first floor landing, and there he hears a loud crunch of wood and metal. He turns and sees the piano they pushed against the front door, a tank has shoved it halfway into the hole. He then hurries to the chapel where there's a gathering of the adults who don't have children to care for. He sees them kneeling at the pews, praying, and wearing their gas masks. Suddenly a nozzle from one of the tanks bursts through the wall of the room. White gas comes out with a frightening Hiss. As the room fills with white clouds, timido hears the sound of uneven footsteps. He looks up and sees David koresh stumble into the chapel. Koresh is limping heavily from his wounds, but the sight is incredible. It's the first time in weeks that the prophet has been upright. Koresh presses his hand against his wound inside, but his eyes look fierce. He gazes across his flock and tells them to hold tight. They're trying to establish communication with the FBI. Then koresh pulls on his gas mask and disappears down the hallway. The FBI loudspeakers Blair again, the voice urges koresh to come out and says be a messiah, David, not a destroyer. Thibodeau hears a loud grown and then the cracking of wood being split apart. He turns and sees a wall collapse as a tank breaks through. The gaseous air fills with debris from the crumbling building, and that's when he hears a wounded cry from someone inside mount Carmel. The shot a single word, fire. He turns just as a giant timber beam crashes down through the chapel, and then orange glow begins to fill the room. Thibodeau's eyes dart left and right, and then he spots the fire racing up the wall. It's climbing faster, spreading wildly. Timido drops on his hands and knees, and as quickly as it can, crawls toward a hole in wall, punched by one of the tanks. It's 1 p.m. at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C.. Gary nest nurse sits in the conference room surrounded by several other FBI agents. For 6 straight hours, they've been transfixed, watching the events in Texas unfold on a giant TV screen. They've seen the tanks smashing through the walls of mount Carmel, the tear gas being funneled into the compound. It's been weeks since Nestor was the chief negotiator when he still can't let go of this case or his anger as he watches the FBI escalate the conflict. He knows this is all supposed to force a surrender, but he also knows it'll do just the opposite. There's no way that mothers will carry their children toward massive tanks. As he watches the TV, the channel cuts back to the live stream as the anchor announces some breaking news. There's a fire in the southeast corner of the davidian compound. Nestor leans forward in his chair, he can see the flames. At first, they're just a small orange glow at the edge of the screen, but the fire spreads quickly, leaping with terrible speed. Nassar's anger grows with the flames, he's furious at koresh for letting it come to this. But he's also furious at Jeff Jamar and dick Rogers in the tactical team. If they just had more patience, he sure his team could have saved more of the children and all the people now trapped inside that burning building. Nestor sits frozen in his chair, watching the flames grow larger. The fire spreads, whipped fearlessly by the high Prairie winds. And then the nightmare becomes real. There's an explosion. A giant fireball climbs into the sky above mount Carmel and the building collapses. The FBI man in the room goes silent. Nestor holds his hand over his mouth and stunned. He closes his eyes, trying to study his own breath, and he rises, and without speaking a word to anyone, Nestor turns his back on the flames, and walks out of the room.

"On the tanks. This plan, Jericho, was supposed to last 48 hours, but now only a few minutes into it, the Davidians have begun shooting. That means the plan automatically escalates. The FBI will immediately drop their strategy of gradual pressure. Instead, they'll move to quickly overwhelm the entire compound. Sage has seen the escalation plan under it Bradley tanks will rapidly fire canisters full of tear gas into all corners of the buildings. Each canister is the size of a football and is capable of penetrating windows and even doors. It's clear that this plan is now underway. From the window sage watches as the tanks maneuver on the Prairie. He continues to plead over the loudspeaker, begging koresh and Schneider to lead their people out. He glances at the TV news coverage, which shows the tank's blasting round after round into mount Carmel. Sage yells at the technician to get the TV out of there. He is enough to manage he doesn't need to think about the entire country watching this. The radio crackles again, it's the tactical team announcing that tear gas has been delivered into every section of the compound. The tank drivers pull back and await new orders. For a moment, everything goes quiet. Sage can only imagine what it's like inside mount Carmel. Compound must be filling with tear gas. People inside will be coughing, eyes burning, struggling for air. Every biological instinct should be urging these people toward the exits. Yet sage hasn't seen a single person run to safety. He's baffled. He wonders how more than 80 people can stay put in these conditions. Even if the adults have gas masks, there wouldn't be any to fit the children. Why aren't the mothers rushing their kids outside? Minutes pass. Still, there's no sign of movement. Again, sage pleads over the loudspeaker. He warns that another round of tear gas will be coming if people don't exit. Dick Rogers, the leader of the tactical team jumps in on the radio. He says that koresh must be blocking the women and children for magazine the building. Jeff Jamar, the on scene commander, responds immediately. He orders the tanks to plow into mount Carmel's walls. That will open new avenues for escape, so the tanks run forward and sage feels his breath grows short. The tanks move slowly, getting closer and closer to the buildings. And then all at once,.

"Always have unfinished business in Waco. It's early April, week 5 of the standoff. At the FBI command post Byron sage sits at a desk, waiting for an important meeting, a meeting that could set the standoff on a new course. After Gary nesse was removed as chief negotiator, sage stepped in as the de facto leader of the negotiating team. He was sorry to see Nestor go, but he's continued to push hard for a peaceful solution, even if progress has been slow coming. Sage has spoken on the phone with David koresh and Steve Schneider almost every day for 5 weeks straight, but it's been two weeks since any adult has walked through the doors of mount Carmel. Koresh hasn't released any children in more than a month. Sage stands up. It's time for his meeting with the FBI's commander Jeff Jamar. Sage walks past rows of agents all huddled over computer monitors. They have dark rings under their eyes, and they look worn fin, just like sage. Everyone is sick of living off cold pizza and they're tired of David koresh and having to organize their lives around the whims of a madman. Sage enters to Mars office, the commander is hunched over his desk, his expression stern. He gestures for sage to sit and asks if there's been any progress in getting people out of mount Carmel. Sage size and shakes his head. Jamar leans in. He wants to know the truth. Can they get David koresh to surrender? Sage takes a moment, swallows hard. It's difficult to admit after weeks of effort, but he tells Jamar what he believes. The negotiator seemed to have exhausted their options. At this point, sage is convinced that David koresh doesn't care about anyone inside. All he sees are ways to fulfill his own grandiose vision. Sage bites his left before offering his final assessment. He's not sure what koresh will do if they don't act soon. Jamar nods, he says he's glad sage has come around on the point because the agency has a new solution in mind. It's a plan codenamed Jericho. Sage recognizes the name Jericho from the famous siege in the Bible. Jamar picks up an aerial photograph of mount Carmel. He points to the compound and explains that according to the plan, tanks will approach mount Carmel with specialized equipment, outfitted with 30 foot arms. These arms will act like pipes that can penetrate the compound. Through these pipes, the tanks will then inject tear gas going room by room. They'll release the gas over a 48 hour period. They're not looking to force the Davidians out immediately. Instead, they'll gradually shrink the living space inside the compound until the entire building is saturated with tear gas. At that point, the Davidians will have no choice but to come out. Jamar looks up from the aerial photograph. He says that once they put Jericho into action, they'll need someone to tell the Davidians about the tear gas and to help talk them out of the building. He wants sage to fill that role. Jamar also explains that the highest levels of the FBI are on board. Soon, the FBI director will help present the plan to Janet Reno. President Clinton's new attorney general. And if Reno gives the okay, the tactical team will immediately put the plan into action. But right now, Jamar wants to know if sage is on board with the plan. Sage lets his mind imagine what will surely be a frightening scene inside mount Carmel. He can picture the thundering tanks, the white clouds of tear gas filling room after room. It's a risky plan, but keeping koresh in place feels even riskier. This has to end on the FBI's terms. So Byron sage tells Jamar, he's in. It's April 14th, 1993, and now day 46 of the standoff. David thibodeau smiles as he bounds up the stairs to the second floor of mount Carmel. He feels light on his feet, his former balk has wasted away after 6 weeks of combat rations, and the hardships of the long siege have purged his last spiritual doubts. For the first time in his life, thibodeau feels like he understands what faith truly means. At the top of the stairs, thibodeau stops and grins. Here, David koresh sits up against the wall, surrounded by a large group of followers, thibodeau sees his own hope reflected on their faces. Earlier today, koresh announced that he will end the standoff once and for all. God spoke to the prophet at the end of Passover. He instructed koresh to write down his interpretation of the 7 seals. Koresh said it will take two weeks, three tops, so he called the FBI and said as soon as he finishes writing the seals, he'll surrender. There will be no change of plans. Thibodeau scans the crowd and spots his wife, Michelle. She sits with serenity, her four year old daughter, who she had with koresh. Thibodeau goes and sits down beside them and serenity crawls into his lap. He smiles at her as she settles in. Settling on koresh is a look of calm and clarity, and then he begins to speak, exalted and proud as if God is flowing through him. He begins dictating the first of the 7 seals next to him, Judy Schneider types furiously on a typewriter. She takes down every one of his words, even though for the last 6 weeks, she's had a wound in her hand where she was shot. Crash's voice rises, he says that he who has chosen to open the seals will be persecuted exactly as he and his followers have been persecuted these long weeks..

"Custody. As the standoff neared its 5th week, some 60 adults and 20 children still remained inside mount Carmel, and what began as a secret raid turned into a global event with audiences around the world tuning in to watch live. This public attention put the FBI under increasing pressure to end the standoff once and for all. This is episode 6 day 51. It's the evening of March 25th, 1993, day 26 of the standoff at mount Carmel. At the FBI command post 8 miles northeast of mount Carmel, Gary Nestor packs up his suitcase. He rubs his tired eyes and steps out of the command post which hums with activity day and night. It's been another grueling day in central Texas. Nestor is the FBI's chief negotiator, and in the days since he arrived, he spent nearly every waking minute consumed with ending the standoff. There's never been a break, not even tonight, as he drives down a dark highway headed back to his hotel. As he glides down the dark road, he spots a car with a bumper sticker that says, Waco proud. His head. The locals are sick of being known for this crazed cult. Seems like everyone on the planet wants to stand off to end. Everyone accept David koresh. Nestor grips the steering wheel tightly, he still fuming about an earlier meeting with Jeff Jamar. Jamar is a top FBI commander at Waco, but in Nestor's opinion, he's too quick to use force. Just days ago, Nestor's team got 7 adults out of mount Carmel, including Sheila Martin, the wife of koresh's close legal adviser, Wayne Martin. But Jamar failed to recognize his achievement, which was thanks to the negotiators and their diplomacy. Even worse, Jamar later sent in more tanks to harass mount Carmel. Nestor arrives at the hotel and heads up to his room. He lies down on the bed and flips on the TV. There's mount Carmel yet again. A compound is flooded with stadium lights, surrounded by tanks, loudspeakers are blaring. The camera then cuts to a TV pundit, who says the FBI is failing, and it's incapable of winning the standoff. Just then the phone rings. Nestor is exhausted, but he knows he can't ignore the call. Yeah, hello. This is Nasser. A cheery voice comes over the line. Gary, drop grace. Grace is Nestor's boss back at the FBI office in Virginia. Oh, hello, sir. What can I do for you? So I know it's late, but I wanted to tell you, I think you and your team are doing a great job down there in Waco. I mean, getting 21 kids out of the compound, that's a real accomplishment. Well, thank you, sir. Fine, but listen. Grace pauses measuring his words, and immediately Nestor feels himself tense up. Something bad is coming. Yeah, so the reason I'm calling is, look, Gary, it's time for you to step down as chief negotiator. You've been going nonstop for coming up on, but what 5 weeks now? It's time for you to get a little R and R. Nestor knows exactly what this means. The FBI brass want him out. Sir, I feel I feel that I'm really needed down here. Let me and my team see this through. I feel the negotiating team will be all right. But sir, Gary. It's done. You fly out tomorrow morning. Nestor is stunned. He stares at the TV at mount Carmel at the tanks and the wreckage that lies in their wake. He wants to protest, but he stops himself. It's no use. Uh, yes, sir. Understood. Nestor hangs up the phone. He's tired,.

"In the hand during the raid, and he's eager to get her to a hospital. He finds his former wife sitting on the bed, holding a two year old girl. Judy had this blond haired girl with David koresh. When Schneider first heard that Judy was pregnant, he could have killed koresh. But since then Steiner has come to love the girl like his own daughter. He wants to make sure she gets out safely. Snyder continues to the lobby where a crowd of followers is already waiting expectantly with their packs on. Snyder takes a deep breath. It's time to get moving. He picks up a phone and calls the FBI. Schneider tells them that everyone's ready. All that is left is to get koresh into a stretcher. He knows the FBI can hear the relief in his voice, but he doesn't care. He just wants this ordeal to end. Schneider hurries back up to the hallway, koresh sits there alone, his eyes glazed over with pain. Schneider speaks gently. David, everything's ready downstairs. The guys will come up with a stretcher and load you on. Don't bother with his stretcher. Come on, David. You need a stretcher. You can't walk out here in your condition. Koresh pauses and with a faraway look, he strokes his own face. Steve, we're not going anywhere. Call it off. Schneider steps back, stunned. What? No, no, everyone's ready to go. The FBI is waiting. God spoke to me, Steve. He told me to wait. Schneider feels his legs and arms go weak. He starts a shake. But David, we made a deal. You said so on tape, if you're a sermon was broadcast, will surrender. If we back out now, the world would think we're liars. You've always had such limited vision. Who cares what a bunch of non believers thinks. This is God's will. We're staying here. But David, what do you think the FBI is going to do now? We can send out a few more kids later tonight. That'll buy us some time until God tells me the next step. Schneider wants to say more, wants to argue and shake some sense into David koresh. But he stops himself. He then turns from karash and walks slowly down the stairs. The people gathered in the lobby look up, and right away, they can see that something's wrong. Snyder breaks the news and sees the shock and fear ripple through the congregation. He can't help but feel responsible. After all, he personally recruited a number of these people. He invited them to share in a heavenly Salvation, but if David is truly delivering God's word, the lord has instead condemned them to a terrible fate. American scandal is sponsored by peloton.

It's march 2nd, 1993, and day three of the standoff at mount Carmel. In the FBI command post, Gary nesse nurse surveys his team. They look tense and nervous. For hours, they've been huddled together, waiting for the Branch Davidians to march out of mount Carmel. The chosen hour has come and gone and still the Davidians remain inside the compound. Nasser squints at a video monitor, still no sign of movement. Suddenly, the radio crackles, it's a member of their tactical team, the elite agents trained in hostage rescue and battlefield tactics. He's demanding an update. Tells the agent that they've been trying unsuccessfully to get Steve Schneider on the phone. They're calling again now. Messner gives a thumbs up to a negotiator who rings the compound. Snyder's voice finally comes over to the line. He sounds nervous and apologetic. No one is coming out, he says, the lord spoke to koresh and told him to wait. The deal was off. Nestor wants a scream, but he fights to contain his anger. He needs to try and salvage the deal. He scribbles a quick note to the negotiator, telling him to remind Schneider that the FBI held up their end of the bargain. The negotiator then tries to get David koresh on the phone. Schneider says that koresh is busy praying and hangs up. Nestor feels his frustration slide into panic. His team did everything right, but he knows they'll be blamed now the koresh is backed out. He has to move quickly and contain the fallout. Nestor stands, telling his deflated team to radio the tactical team, the surrender is officially off. He hurries out of the room and races through the command post looking for Jeff Jamar, the special agent in charge. When he reaches to Mars office, he encounters another man. Dick Rogers, the head of the tactical team, both men looked furious. Nestor relays Snyder's message. It's a huge disappointment he concedes, but this setback shouldn't change the goal of ending the standoff peacefully. At that Rogers jumps, he accuses koresh of deliberately toying with the FBI. He's furious and wants to move tanks onto the property as a show of force. Jamar nods in agreement. All day, he says he's been glowing to the media about the surrender deal. Now he has to walk it back at the press briefing. The FBI brass will be furious, even president Clinton will have to answer questions about this screw up. Messner tries to calm them. He reminds them that his team was able to get a few more children out this morning, plus two older women. That victory can not be discounted, even without a mass surrender, a trickle of exits could become a flow, and then a gush. They need patience, not aggression. Rogers flushes, looking even angrier than before. He says he's having none of it. They should stop oddly. His.
