LocationWaco,  Texas,  US

Initial Raid

The initial raid killed 4 ATF agents and 6 Branch Davidians. All of the ATF agents (Steve Willis, Robert Wiliams, Conway LeBleu, Todd McKeehan) had reportedly worked as bodyguards for Bill Clinton and "Questions have been raised as to the nature and source of their wounds."[1]


Following the initial raid, a 51-day siege ensued. This ended with an assault by the FBI during which the compound burned down, killing 76 people.


In 1999, United States Attorney General Janet Reno appointed John Danforth to investigate the FBI's conduct in Waco. Danforth chose Edward L. Dowd as his deputy special counsel in this capacity.
