Danforth and the Waco coverup


Future of Freedom FoundationThe easiest way to achieve sainthood in Washington is to cover up a federal atrocity. Thus, it is no surprise that former senator John Danforth continues to be treated by the Washington Post as a visionary statesman. The Post showcased Danforth’s attack on Donald Trump in October after Trump derided the Commission on Presidential Debates. Danforth, a permanent member of that commission, is one of the top five “useful idiots for Leviathan,” according to the revised rankings after the death of John McCain.
In the 1990s, Danforth received plaudits for being a “moderate” Republican who supported gun control. But his true claim to establishment fame arose from his contortions to suppress the truth about Waco. Danforth appointed himself as the nation’s political faith healer after the biggest federal law-enforcement debacle in modern times.

Prompted by Danforth's involvement with the President Debate Commission, the author examines Danforth's role in covering up the Waco massacre. The focus on Danforth is a little odd, but the piece is worth reading as a refresher on what happened at Waco and how it was covered up. And if Danforth is still treated with respect anywhere, well, this should put an end to that.
