Rejection - How To Cope?
"Especially being a lebron and bang the waco defense scissors i would say i think we have a unique perspective or an unique ability to see all the points of us lebron's so from that angle. I've come up with this little theory that rejection can be reframed as seeing someone self exiting from your life. Wow i think this is overcomplicating things. This over complicating matters. Welcome to my brain. I understand that your theory is helping you cope with the situation and we like to find justifications to endure the pain or the rejection itself. I would like to give you just rights trade at your head. Something very important and i wish for you. Keep it for the rest of your life and beyond spread it. Just no it with every single cell in your system. So when someone's rejecting you lemme ask that. Why would you want to have anything to do with the person who apparently does not want to have anything to do with you. Why that's a great christian dicey but it doesn't really. I laugh the emotional attachment that you would have to that person in circumstances so what you're talking about jiming is asking a logical question to an emotional state which in turn helps you to change. Emotional state thoughts lead to feelings feelings. Need to behavior so When you change your thinking you will change how you feel about it and therefore you will be able to behave in a different way. Even the person who rejected you. But i am catching you in here. Because here's the thing when you tried to cope with the situation by justifying other people's behavior. It's a trap. it's not your purpose. it's not your job. It is not your life purpose to justify anyone else's feelings emotions actions spirituality. And i could go on the list. A-to-z it's not your purpose. That's one way of looking at it. That i'm justifying it but it's not about buying it for me about understanding why is happening because for me and i am quite logic based if i can understand something than i can do with much much. Easier and understanding human behavior is one of the great learning curves. I'm on right now. i appreciate that. It's it's a never ending learning curve. The problem i see with this what you're trying to achieve. I understand you correctly that you're trying to understand. Why now in order to understand their why whoever they are you would have to think like them feel like them have had the same experiences as they had an have had to give the same meaning that they gave to specific sections that they went through. So it's impossible. So why would you try to participate in mission impossible. Unless you're tom cruise. Then you can do that though. Hang on now. You're saying that empathy can't be achieved. We did not hear you say maybe you saw. I have not heard hang on. I can't let me expand because for me. Empathy is understanding why they do that. What led them to that understanding what it feels like for them to me that sympathy and that's the same thing as when i'm saying i won't understand from their point of view. Why they join that. It makes it easier for me. That's the same thing is empathy to you. Well i'm glad you clarified undefined. The word empathy for you in this particular context or in this context very important. I feel and i feel strongly that empathy not necessarily includes that i understand. Why another person's doing what they do widely do what they do. I do believe that empathy is something that i'm respecting the choices their decisions and i'm accepting them because they empathy when we are going on the emotional level. Let say i hit my foot here. Because i kicked the neighbor stock. I never would do that by. It's just an example. But let's say. I kick the neighbor stock because again it came over here and whatever chewed on my cushions on the lounger and now i hurt my foot and you may say to me. Oh i'm so sorry all. This must be really hurting. Do you really believe that you can feel exactly the way i feel about me hurting my foot including the emotional charge to it to really believe. That's possible i think it is if you've been in a similar situation implies don't believe exactly nari but i do believe that you can get to an understanding of what it's like them based on similar things happening to you. I believe you can only relate to how another person feels but you can never feel exactly how another person feels. Well not exactly. And why. I'm saying that is because even identical twins in the same situation growing up in the same household do not perceive the same situation at the same time executive same. Neither emotionally not rationally. I case let's say that given. But the actual point i think is that you mentioned it being a justification of their behavior and i don't believe that's where i'm going it's not a justification is an understanding that intern helps me understand. So that's the angle. I was coming from when i was speaking about trying to understand the reason for the rejection and why framed it to myself is self exiting was a way for me to not be so hurt and not take it personally but say from their point of view this is not right for them and their life and so they need to exit themselves. That makes it a lot less hurtful for me now. Maybe that is over complicating it. Sure i'll love you. That and i do like the fact that you've pointed out that asking you so flood questions while you're an emotional state can help change your state. So that's really clever. And i think something that is easily put into action in anybody's life. So maybe that's a great direction to go down here when we're talking about how to help how lisa's when they of feeling rejected which. I'm all about behavior. I do believe behaviors all that matters.

Interview With Ibrahim Moustafa, Author Of 'Count'
"Today i am joined by ibrahim mustafa the writer and artist of graphic novel. Count which is coming out from humanoids as you're listening to this. I'm gonna try to release it. The episode right about the time that the graphic novel is officially available in stores Ever thanks so much for joining today. I really appreciate you taking the time or we're going to count as well as some of your other works before we You know in here. I wanted to talk to you about Like how how did the inspiration for this particular graphic novel. It's an interesting. I found an interesting adaptation. Because it's it's very much your own work. It's very much yours. Despite having you know it's not it's not a literal county monte cristo adaptation right like it's you doing your take your riff on that on the themes of that in the ideas in that story What was the inspiration for that. And did you want to reference that source material. Yeah well i i you know. It's i appreciate you making that distinction. Because i think it does kind of get lost in the translation of the the pr materials thus far like an adaptation so people might think well. This doesn't have anything to do with the so i. This guy's name is totally different right. Inspired by may have been like the better tagline. In retrospect but yeah. I just i'm a big fan of revenge stories. And kinda christo is kind of the granddaddy of them. All and i was just kind of in a head space. I guess thinking about different stories. I enjoy think john waco just come out. And i've loved watching that and and and then i just thought well you know. Wouldn't it be cool if this story. Which is you know in the public domain and everyone is aware of it on some level. I think culturally. What if this took place in a different setting and had action and the original novel is very soap operatic. There's not a lot of. I mean there's really i think there's a sword drawn in the whole book and it's a twelve hundred page book right so i'll just wild. Yeah you definitely expect to be more. Yeah and the two thousand two film adaptation of it with jim caviezel and guy pearce definitely added a couple of sword fights a little bit more accurate to it and action is a big thing that i enjoy in media and so i thought i would try to play to my what i feel are my strengthen and really inject some of that into the story so from there i just sat out to to start crafting a pitch document i did in between worked for higher stuff's i would kinda take some time in the evening or a weekend on the rare occasions that actually got those and Would start chipping away character designs and just kind of building it in my head and then once i was able to pitch it to humanoids and they said okay. We like this. We wanna see more before we give it a yes or no That gave me an opportunity to really. Just start kinda down. On the details of it. In really kind of hone it into what it became. Cool cool no. that makes a lot of sense You you've mentioned in. I've listened to some other years including the one you did on the humorless podcast with marc weighed in the team. There you mentioned Wishbone like the terror as a as a touch base. So those was because that's definitely was my introduction to a lot of classic literature as well. I think kind of my christos funny in that regard in that. I like you said i think everyone has familiarity with it. But the percentage of people that maybe have actually read the alexandre dumas is probably pretty low. I know in my case definitely was like it was one that i actually impact for this interview. I was like like check out the audiobook. Like listen to it on a few runs. I've never even though. I feel like another story. I've never actually experienced it. Which would geographic than i didn't have. I didn't have the burden or those expectations of you know somebody who's like. Oh it. does this do the original justice. which is freeing i think. Potentially you know it's it's interesting because there are a lot of adaptations that we don't even realize adaptations of it right Old boy is kinda count of monte cristo. Style at guys put in a prison. Eventually escapes takes event right right. It's it's been done in various mediums. I think in ways that really transform it And i and i was actually thinking about it. It would be interesting to see what would have happened if we didn't say anything about the kind of monte cristo You know and just kind of put it out there to see people. But i felt like because i was paying a mosh to a lot of it and i was really taking the broad strokes of the original. It would have been like this kind of microsoft like so. It was necessary to kind of put that out there. That's what it was
Meet The Author, Shane Wilson, Realistic Fantasy With A Sharp Edge
"To the big program as i mentioned. It's a an episode of meet the author. Shane wilson is storytelling. No matter the medium. The emphasis of his work is on the magical act of the story and how the stories we tell immortalize us and give us give voice to the abstractions of the human experience. Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears open minds and help me welcome in whoop. Waco shane wilson to the my duck pakistan. Welcome thank you so much. Thanks for being here. Now it's a pleasure so get get me hip two way our way are you are 'cause i'm not sure i know you're a southern guy. Are you giorgia I'm curly in north carolina. You know what i said. That and i don't know why i said that last night but then i was questioning myself. This is why. I asked you this at first up last night. I said it was raised in georgia. Sir right. I read your bio that you i believe born in alabama raising in georgia but i said last night on the air i said i. It's north carolina guy. And then i looked it up today and i was like no. I'm wrong. he's not where they get those carolina from now you just said it. So where did i get it from. It's not online anywhere that fact. I'm getting it actually. You might be psychic. In which case mybookie dot com is definitely a place for you but yeah i mean i feel like somewhere in the bio somewhere in all of the information out there. It probably says that. I teach college in north carolina which is true. Well i did not see. I wasn't aware of that. So you're you what are you. Teaching kalki teach english literature music. I teach composition creative writing that kind of thing very cool stuff so Tell me a little bit about yourself. How how when you kind of got the author bug. We'll start with the author stuff. Then we'll come back to the music little later on but tell me when you when you first realized the way that it should be thing Because i think i've been writing forever I i'd be hard pressed to find a moment in in my life. At least i actually remember when i wasn't writing I remember my parents buying me. An old typewriter When i was just a little kid. And i remember like i would practice spelling on it. i would ask my mom to spell for me like the the most complex words i can think of a kid it was stuff like rhinoceros right and i would ask you to spell it and then i would like pick it out and so i was practicing already getting kind of the bug and then i remember like second grade. I would write these short stories and just handwriting out. I'd put them in a one of those three prong folders and then i would draw cover and glue it on the front Like saw i was already thinking about book design and stuff even though i wasn't cognizant of that right and so yeah like from the from the jump right in has been a part of me and the through. I think the evolution is pretty similar to a lotta guys that are that are writers in that you know middle. School comes along. And now i'm writing poetry in order to hit on girls And the same kind of thing in high school. And then you get when i got into college. The academic spirit kind of squashed some of that creativity as it will do And then on the other side of college. I slowly started to chip away that published some poetry some short stories and then accidentally wrote a novel while There's a lot to respond to their. But i i'm i'm smiling because i thought i'm going to say this now even though i wanted to say this for a little bit later in the conversation but I thought when i saw romance and fantasy stuff betsy kinda stuff that either A guy who's a player trying to impress women or gate would well you know The the romance stuff is is very light. In in most of what i write every now and then i will dip a toe into that sandbox. Because i think and and i don't write traditional romance. When i do that i write stuff that kind of turns genre upside down or i try to. Because ultimately i think romance is kind of trite and empty void of a genre So when i when. I do play over there. I like to to try to get in. Turn it in on itself. A little bit But for the most part the fantasy stuff is it comes from The my academic focus. When i was at school. I studied a ton of magical realism. I had a professor who is very into that genre and sir My master's thesis was on salman rushdie and midnight's children And all that stuff so yeah so like i was reading a ton of magical realism. And so i don't write. What would be considered hard. Fantasy like tolkien. And those guys right fantasy this grounded in our reality but there are magical elements at play.

Knocked over all enough coleman lanterns to spread enough fuel to you know that that a spark could have lit the compound on fire You know and then there's the third theory which is the one that the FBI has has stuck to You know which is that. The branch Davidians or group within the branch Davidians intentionally Lit The compound on fire There is the the two big pieces of evidence to support that one is the testimony of an F. B. I. Sniper who says he saw someone inside Spreading fuel and you can come take that at what it is you know if the FBI had acted variously certainly a member of the FBI would have a lot of incentive to lie about what he saw but it is something that that agent testified to. I think the harder piece of evidence to refute is the testimony of Graeme Craddock. Who was a member of the branch? Davidians You know who said repeatedly That he sought people spreading fuel inside the compound. So you know exactly what happened how it all went down. I either the people who Who lived the people who left the compound during the fire either? Didn't see it weren't part of a plan. They all except for craddock seemed to have a no knowledge or don't want to discuss What happened with the fire? Critic of does not has not gone out of his way to blame the branch Davidians and Koresh but but he has mentioned the fuel. So I think that's the most likely scenario but I don't think I think the the mistake in saying while the branch Davidians started the fire or you know some groups of the mighty men group within the branch. Davidians started the fire which I think is probably true. I think the mistake with just saying that in stopping there Is that it blames the branch Davidians for everything. That happened And I think there's no doubt that the HR tactics were were wildly. You're responsible That there was no reason that the FBI should've gone in with gas morning. And I think that's been born out because as the future when there were sieges later on The FBI was even more patient. You know it was it was it was a total disaster and a total disaster for the FBI Total tragedy for the French video community. American scandal is sponsored by Madison Reed.

Waco has inspired the government to investigate itself. There are countless books articles movies and now Netflix has re released. Two thousand eighteen miniseries to an even greater audience. Waco is a thing. What do you think the? Cj Waco's lasting influences on the public and the government. Yes so the Waco siege is lasting. Influences is a really interesting question. I when I think about what happened in Waco. It is like a home distillation of all of these trends that have been happening in American society from the very beginning of the nation. You know it's it's this a religious liberty it's private property. It's gun ownership. It's the role of the federal government. It's really dislike quintessentially American event an American tragedy its place in the American popular consciousness. I think has ebbed and flowed since nineteen ninety three. I think it had a pretty quick drop In people paying attention to it at the Oklahoma City bombing kind of brought it back. The Oklahoma City bombing also had had the inverse effect on on militia membership militia memberships spiked after the events at Waco and dropped After the events at Oklahoma City But but it has been through the nineteen ninety s certainly it was the subject that was intensely debated and Kinda culminating in the the second major federal investigation. That the Danforth report. I think it What happened on nine? Eleven and the subsequent wars that You know certain ended the public's fascination for a while with what had happened At the branch Davidian compound. There were several different documentaries You know some of them quite excellent And and the the miniseries You referenced during Taylor Kitsch as David Koresh you. I think definitely represented kind of high point for the The FBI's actions against a militia groups. I think it fundamentally changed the way that the FBI did wake was part of a series of events who is the final In a series of Events Ruby Ridge was a major event that preceded at a were in. Fbi sniper had killed a woman as she went outside compound and was unarmed There had been a few smaller incidents involving militia groups in the nineteen eighties In federal law enforcement you know after Waco ended so disastrously for the FBI I think they decided that they would bend over backwards to avoid What had happened at Waco and you saw that right up until the I think the closest recent analog was the the Eamon Bundy led a standoff in Oregon We're one man was killed But the the federal government. I think we're basically was going to let them be there as long as they were going to be there. There was the the to the point where I don't think anyone looking at that event thought it was. The federal government was about to get tanks and an storm The the Bundy compound where you know where they were holed up in that federal land. The just You know with hopefully not do that today and I think it's just not the way that they operate after Waco it was it was such a black guy For the agency many of these issues. These uniquely American issues that you identify the the Waco distilled are still obviously with us today and And clearly the government's role in protecting its citizens Is is still there as well. What does the frontier for the next Rebellion if anything and what do you think? The government's response will be yeah. That's that's a tough question. I think a lot of the the issues around individual the the balance of individual liberties The the role of the state the role of law enforcement are you know are are all issues that very much. Still face us today. You could imagine I mean just what we've seen over the last month of two months with the federal and state response to the corona virus pandemic and the way that certain people protested that You know people that there has always been always will continue to be a strain of people for it is very very important to assert their independence from the state and law enforcement You know at almost all times You know often often citing people like you know early. Writings have founding fathers. Thomas Jefferson so i. I don't know I'm not smart enough to know what what the next big issue will be. Hopefully it won't be a Waco because the lessons that were learned at Waco But I you know you saw with the Bundys. It was about the federal ownership of of land in the West. You know whether the federal government should be should be holding all of this land and deciding who got to use it you know you. Could you could imaginative in maybe not in this pandemic but of future events where the government curtailed individual rights as they indisputably have done during this pandemic And people decided that the more important thing is the preservation of individual rights as a as a small very small. But but you know pretty vocal group has so I think a lot of a lot of that that just kind of fundamental attention in American society between very strong protection of individual liberty you know and ambit complicated and vast modern state apparatus. You could see that conflict playing out In all sorts of different venues Just hopefully if you know if won't via deadly Conflict Eric Benson thank you so much for coming on American scandal Thanks it was great to be here now as Eric.

"Back in two thousand eighteen. You did a retrospective of the events at Waco for Texas monthly on the twenty fifth anniversary in one of those stories You interviewed Byron Sage of former. Fbi agent who was also a lead negotiator with the branch. Davidians when you spoke with him. How did sage respond to the legacy of the Siege? And and how did he tell the? Fbi side of the story. Yes Byron sage is a is a really interesting figure in the WACO story you know. He was the lead. Fbi Agent in Austin during the Waco siege but also had extensive negotiating experience and was called up to be part of this very large team of FBI negotiators. Who were talking with? Koresh and sage took on a leadership role within the the negotiating team. He wasn't in charge of the negotiating team but he was effectively the lead negotiator because the person in charge of the negotiating team was not often on the phone. He was more directing the effort. Since sage was was there for all fifty days of the siege and you know he was the one at the at the end who was telling the branch Davidians to leave their compound when it was on fire he had really extensive conversations with David crush including the only face to face negotiation of the Waco Siege When he and the sheriff of McLennan County Jacquard will Went and met face to face with Steve. Schneider Wayne Martin Actually come in the middle of the Mount Carmel between the F. B. I. Post and the actual compound itself but sage has since really the end of the siege and since it became a real flash point as been a very vocal defender of the FBI. You Know He. He is criticized some of the tactical side of the FBI There was negotiating side and then his tactical side. The negotiators were on the phone. The tactical side of were an armored vehicles and had their guns trained on the branch Davidian compound. He's criticized some of the tactical tactics but his feeling is very strongly that there is nothing that the F. B. I. could've done to To change the ultimate outcome of the siege and he's most people that I've spoken to in the FBI feel the same way. And that's I think that's part of the culture of the FBI in part of him You know having having been there for all of that time and tried to do as much as he did to get people out but you know certainly not. Everyone agrees with and and not even everyone. Involved with law enforcement agree with that in the same series for Texas monthly. You also interviewed Sheila Martin and Clive Doyle both branch Davidians who escaped dying in the fire. Do you get a sense that that the two of them have been able to move on from the tragedy or are they perhaps stuck in it defending their own side of it. He has Dolan Sheila Martin who I spent some time with. I've known climb for a few years and Sheila I just met two years ago But there I believe. The last two Members who are who are alive of branch. Davidian sect who still You know who are still in Waco and still believe that David Koresh was of a God chosen figure they haven't rejected David Koresh And Yeah I don't think that either of them have moved on. And how could they clive? Oil lost his daughter in the wake of fire and Sheila. Martin lost almost her entire family. You know she lost. I believe two sons since she lost her husband so for them. It was a an immense personal tragedy as well as seen their community essentially end. But they you know they still believe in the same things that they believed in then religiously and so. I don't think either certainly Sheila Martin but but really in my conversations with Clive Doyle. They're they're not that concerned with litigating. Exactly what happened at Mount Carmel They're mostly concerned with carrying on and That particular religious tradition which at this point is is very small and without intervention from something that you know that they believe in We'll probably end with them. One of the points. That was probably the most litigated of this. Whole thing is the very end How did the fire start? Can you lay out to us what we know what we suspect? Who thinks what yes. How how the fire started in has been the most litigated point. But but literally litigated and certainly bandied about in the media and by different stakeholders in what happened Waco I'll say because we talked about the media earlier one thing that's really fascinating to me You know someone who. I'm thirty five years old. I was young and not a big news. Consumer with the branch Davidian siege happened So I before I was asked to look into this For movie project actually about five years ago I had kind of only a very hazy view of what the Waco siege was who David Koresh was But when the WACO fire happened the polling after immediately after the fire Ninety three percent of people in this was in a a CNN. Gallup poll thought that David Koresh was responsible for for what happened. You have by nineteen ninety nine after they're been quite a few documentaries congressional hearings Importantly the discovery that there was a pyrotechnic round used at Waco The public opinion had almost completely flipped Sixty one percent of people who were polled in nineteen ninety nine thought the FBI started the fire which was part of the reason why there is another federal investigation after the initial federal investigations and the congressional hearings. A special council investigation that Janet Reno than the attorney. General John Danforth who had been a Republican senator from Missouri to To conduct so with the fire there was a fire that started at around noon on the day that the FBI was injecting. Tear gas into the compound so the FBI on April nineteenth basically decided that the siege was over and that the branch Davidians were coming out and they brought in a army tanks fitted with tear gas injectors and started punching holes into the building and injecting. Tear Gas Trying to enforce the branch Davidians to come out and for the first six hours. None of them came out. And then you have a fire starts in the compound very quickly sweep Through the compound burned to the ground By an hour later there's really not much more of the branch Davidian compound and the fire of course burns for for a while and and and killed seventy six people as far as what we know You know I think I would say that. They're basically the theories of the fire and Frankly you know which I what I think has the most evidence you know. What one theory is that? The government Intentionally started the fire either to drive the branch. Davidians out or to kill all of them. That's theory that started almost immediately after the fire. I believe the first big airing of it was in a documentary called Waco the big lie which is not a very credible documentary It showed Kind of reflections. That were happening of sunlight of off the tear gas injectors and it made it look like the tear. Gas injectors were shooting flames into the compound I not. I don't think that anyone who's looked at the evidence. Thinks that that's credible. I think you the video. Evidence doesn't seem to support that. There were flame. Throwers on tanks shooting Flames into the compound. So there's a separate theory that FBI snipers were shooting at branch either into the compound or overshooting branch. Davidians who leaving the compound That was something that I'm relatively sure that people in the compound were afraid of There was a documentary that was a very widely seen documentary That used confessed footage from a Spy plane that was going overhead to support the idea that there was muzzle fire from FBI snipers The Danforth report refuted that I personally think that it's quite unlikely that the FBI was firing into the compound. There's another theory that the the branch video of course they're electricity was cut off. So there were there. Were they had a coleman lanterns filled filled with oil And that's how they were lighting the inside of the compound and so there's a theory that as the tanks rolled in You know they might have knocked over. These fuel canisters and kind of turned the compound into basically a place that was ready to light on fire and then it took almost nothing. Just a a a spark or something like that to like the whole place up that it almost prepared for fire. Is that theory that I think some people have taken some comforting because it makes the whole thing seemed completely accidental.

"It's the evening March. Twenty Fifth Nineteen ninety-three day. Twenty six of the at Mount Carmel at the FBI. Command Post eight miles northeast of Mount Carmel. Gary Messner packs 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 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. Nestor nods his head. The locals are sick of being known for this craze cult. Seems like everyone on the planet wants the standoff to end everyone except David Koresh necessary grips the steering wheel tightly. He still fuming about an earlier meeting with Jeff Jomar Tomorrow's ATOP FBI commander at Waco but a Nassar's opinion. He's too quick to use force just days ago. Necessarily team got seven adults at Mount Carmel. Including Sheila Martin. The Wifa crushes close legal adviser Wayne Martin but Jomar failed to recognize achievement which was thanks to the negotiators and their diplomacy even worse to mar later. Sent in more tanks to harass Mel Karnal Nelson arrives at the hotel and heads up to his room allies down on the bed and flips on the TV. There's Mount Carmel yet. Again the compound is flooded with stadium lights surrounded by tanks loudspeakers 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 necessarily exhausted but he knows he can't ignore the call. Yeah hello this is necessarily a cheery voice comes over the line. Gary throbbed race race boss back at the FBI office in Virginia. 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 twenty. One kids out of the compound. That's a real accomplishment will thank you Sir bye but listen. Grace Pauses measuring his words and immediately. Nestor feels himself tense up. Something bad is coming. Yeah so the. 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. What would five weeks now? It's time for you to get a little Dr. Nestor knows exactly what this means the. Fbi BRASS 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. Ness nervous is 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 IT'S NO USE. Yes Sir understood. Nestor hangs up the phone. He's tired numb. He turns off the TV and stares at the ceiling. Nascar set out to get every man woman and child out of Mount Carmel. We've fallen far short of that. And he has a terrible feeling that he'll always have unfinished business in Waco. It's early April week. Five of the standoff at the F. B. I. 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 National was removed as chief negotiator. Sage stepped in has the de facto leader of the negotiating team. He was sorry to see. Messner 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 five weeks straight. But it's been two weeks since any adult is walk through the doors of Mount Carmel. Crash hasn't released any children 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 thin. Just like sage. Everyone is sick of living off cold pizza and they're tired of David. Koresh having to organize their lives around the whims of a madman. Say Jenner's 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 to Marlene's 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 Jomar what he believes. The negotiator seemed to have exhausted their options. At this point sages convinced that David. Koresh doesn't care about anyone inside. All He sees are ways to fulfil his own. Grandiose Vision Sage prices lip before offering his final assessment. He's not sure what correct will do if they don't act. Soon Jomar 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 code-named Jericho. Sage recognizes the name. Jericho from the famous siege. In the Bible Jomar picks up an aerial photograph of Mount Carmel. He points to the compound explains that according to the plan tanks will approach Mount Carmel with specialized equipment outfitted with thirty foot arms. These arms will act like pipes that can penetrate the compound through these pipes. The tanks will then injected tear-gas going room by room. They'll release the gas over a forty eight hour period. They're not looking to force the Davidians out immediately instead. They'll gradually shrank the living space inside the compound until the entire building is saturated with tear gas. At that point the divisions will have no choice but to come out tomorrow 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 teargas and to help talk them out of the building. He wants sage to fill that role. Jomar 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 Reno gives the okay. The tactical team will immediately put the plan into action. But right now Jomar wants to know if sage on board with the plan say just 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. Too RISKY PLAN KEEPING KARESH. In-place feels even riskier. This has to end on the FBI's terms so Byron. Sage tells Jomar he's in its April fourteenth. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety three now day forty six of the standoff David Tobacco smiles as he bounds up the stairs to the second floor of Mount Carmel. He feels light on his feet. His former balk wasted after six weeks of combat rations and the hardships of the long siege purged. His last spiritual doubts for the first time in his life timid. Oh feels like he understands what faith truly means at the top of the stairs to stops and grins here. David Koresh sits up against the wall surrounded by large group of followers timid. Oh sees his own hope reflected on their faces earlier today Karesh announced that he will end the standoff once and for all God spoke to the Prophet at the end of Passover. He instructed Karesh to write down. His interpretation of the seven seals. Karesh said it will take two weeks three tops so he called the FBI and said as soon as he finishes writing the seals you'll surrender. There will be no change of plans. Scans the crowd and spots his wife. Michelle she sits with serenity. Her four year old daughter who she had with Karesh Tibidot goes and sits down beside them and serenity crawls into his lap he smiles at her and she settles in Settling on. Karesh 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 seven seals next to him. Judi Schneider types furiously on a typewriter. She takes down every one of his words even though for the last six weeks. She's had a wound in her hand where she was shot. Creches voice rises. He says that he who has chosen to open the seals. We'll be persecuted exactly. Has He and his followers have been persecuted. These long weeks. Typical smiles at Michelle encrypt serenity tightly together. They've outlasted these hardships the endless screeching from the loudspeakers the dwindling supply of food and Water. The abundance of death and fear and suffering but as Tibidot sits among his family he finally feels at peace because once David Koresh finishes the seals together they will emerge from Al Karnal and the world will see that they are God's.

Aguilara goes numb for a moment. He can't see feel or hear anything all it's left as a quiet voice inside him asking. How could this be happening? How did everything go so wrong? So quickly inside Mount Carmel. A storm of bullets pierce is the front door of the compound. David Koresh staggers back. He hears a strangled cry behind him. Perry Jones his wife. Rachel's father you must have been hit thanks crash. Perry joined Russia. The door to help negotiate plan was trying to talk to the agents to understand their intentions but when Karesh opened the door he saw men in flak jackets racing toward him from every direction. They're weapons withdrawn. They were shouting saying something he couldn't understand. He was overwhelmed and so correct quickly slammed the door in their faces now a couple of crashes followers racine and lift. Perry taking him away but correct can also hear shouts and sharp tries coming from outside the door. His men must have opened fire on the agents clashes so much uglier than Koresh had ever imagined. He tried to warn his followers that this day would be terrible that they pay a huge price before leaving their final reward but now that the moment has come crashes not only angry. He's deeply hurt.

Searing pain shoots up through his left hip than his back and crumples to the ground. Trash looks down. He's bleeding everywhere crush. Here's more rounds echoing through the gymnasium and then gunfire in response. He's not sure what's happening. What he praised that it's his men firing back. One thing is certain though he has to escape these agents crash summons his strength and begins crawling arm overarm toward the hallway on the first floor of Mount Carmel Wayne Morton Paces back and forth inside his office. The phones press so hard to his ear that it's beginning to sting as he paces. He casts a bitter glance at the Harvard Law School Diploma framed on his office. Wall the ATF. Didn't show up to talk with the resident lawyer. He thinks that came ready to kill and children. Martin dial nine one one now. He's on the phone with Lieutenant. Larry Lynch from the County Sheriff Department. They've been talking for almost forty minutes with Martin demanding that the government agents hold their fire and retreat for Martin. Nothing could be more urgent. His wife and seven children are inside Mount Carmel and he knows he must get the government to stop shooting. W what's taking so long. Why can't you get the ATF? On the line. Sorry I told you I'm trying. I sat communication with agents this morning. But they're not responding figured out already. I want us we want. A ceasefire wayne standby okay. No one's responding to the damn radio. Martin suddenly feels exhausted crawls under the heavy wooden desk trying to protect himself from gunfire. Just then Deputy Lynch's voice breaks in. Wayne Wayne you still there. I got him on the line. The talk about a ceasefire now. So so standby tell them if they don't back off we're GONNA fight to the last man. I understand. I understand Wayne just remain calm. I'm as calm as they are lynch. They're attacking us again Wayne. Quaint listen to me. Stop Shooting and they'll stop shooting. The wants to remove their casualties okay. They're not attacking you. Yes they are. Do not call me a liar. They're shooting I'm not saying you're a liar. Just just hang on. We'll get the ceasefire as Martin weights with the phone to his ear. He's filled with sorrow for years. Karesh prophesized that the government attack go one of two ways if they were all pure enough of spirit that God would simply bring them to. Heaven wants the battle started. They would be protected from the bullets and they wouldn't suffer an earthly death. But now it's clear to Martin that he and the other followers have failed Karesh. They weren't pure enough disciplined enough to ascend straight to heaven now. It seems that their fate is to suffer with him and his family but Martin has one final hope if they can stay true to crash in these last days they might still find salvation hopefully they can withstand this final test inside the Mount Carmel Gymnasium shots. Continue to ring out one after the other David. Koresh summons the last of his strength and crawls to a hallway. He safer now but the pain in his hip is dizzying. Strikes him. That he's dying but he feels a wave of peace wash over him. He'll die after doing battle with government forces just as he predicted.
