I know Thibadeau wrote a book that this was based on. But I think they also based it off an FBI book too.
Either way, hard to not side with the Branch Davidians after that. Fantastic mini series and Taylor Kitsch was awesome.Advertisement

I in no way beleive the ATF just pulled up and started shooting without being either first shot at or having guns pointed at them. The famous video of the ATF guy on the roof shows shots clearly coming through the wall from the inside at him. I don't think Koresh was quit as stable as they portrayed him to be either.
It was telling that they seemed to put the go ahead for the final attack at Clinton's feet when Reno said that she'd have to brief the President first. I'd have never thought he would have been that closely involved...if that scene is correct.

His guy told him that he was surprised that some members of the ATF/FBI weren’t brought up on murder charges but he also said that evidence shows the Branch Davidians set the fire.
