(( IT WAS APRIL 19, 1993 -- AFTER A 51-DAY STAND-OFF BETWEEN THE FBI AND DAVID KORESH AND HIS FOLLOWERS.... THIS WAS THE TRAGIC FIRE THAT ENDED IT ALL. NOW--THERE'S EVIDENCE THE FBI USED INCEDIARY TEAR GAS CANISTERS ON A CONCRETE BUNKER -- BUT NOT AT THE WOODEN COMPOUND STRUCTURE THAT BURNED SEVERAL HOURS LATER.
THE EVIDENCE-- WHICH U-S MARSHALLS CONFISCATED FROM FBI HEADQUARTERS-- IS A TAPE FROM AN FBI PLANE WHICH RECORDED A CONVERSATION BETWEEN AGENTS AND A SUPERIOR WHO OKAYED THE USE OF FLAMMABLE TEAR GAS.

SOT: JAMES KALLSTROM/FMR. ASST. DIR., FBI


A RADIO IN THE AIRPLANE THAT WAS LISTENING TO THE HRT TACTICAL RADIO RECORDED SOME INSTRUCTIONS .... THE OK WAS GIVEN.
IN THE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION THAT FOLLOWED THE TRAGEDY, U-S ATTORNEY GENERAL JANET RENO TESTIFIED THAT BRANCH DAVIDIANS -- NOT THE FBI-- STARTED THE FIRE. BUT THIS LATEST REVELATION RAUSES QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER RENO KNEW ABOUT THE FLAMMABLE TEAR GAS. SEN. PHIL GRAMM/R-TX I THINK THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHERE SHE HAS EITHER LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OR ALLOWED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO BE LIED TO. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAYS RENO DIDN'T GET ALL THE INFORMATION... BILL JOHNSTON/ASST. U.S ATTORNEY I WAS ESSENTIALLY TRYING TO TELL HER --MAM SOMEONE'S NOT TELLING YOU WHAT'S GOING ON... OR AT LEAST IT APPEARS TO ME BY HER STATEMENTS, SHE DIDN'T KNOW.
RENO NOW WANTS AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION. THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ARE REPORTEDLY LOOKING FOR A REPUBLICAN FIGURE TO HEAD UP THE PROBE.
