On February 28, 1993, a team of agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) launched an assault on the premises of a religious community called Mount Carmel, outside Waco, Texas, occupied by a sect called the Branch Davidians (an offshoot of the Seventh Day Adventist Church), led by a man named Vernon Howell, who had assumed the name David Koresh. Ostensibly to serve a search and arrest warrant, the raid resulted in a shootout in which four ATF agents and six Davidians were killed. 
One BATF agent was killed in transport to the site before the siege even began, and reportedly the other three BATF agents were actually killed by gunfire from other BATF or Federal agents (covered in documentary below "Waco - The Big Lie", time 12:05-15:45, showing BATF agent throwing grenade and firing automatic weapon into room where 3 agents just entered building).
After a 51-day siege, on April 19, 1993, agents of the jewish-occupied US government conducted a military-style assault on the small religious community, murdering 79 men, women, and children -- including 22 British nationals, 2 Canadian nationals, and 2 Australian nationals.
In blatant violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, the BATF, FBI, CIA, and Delta Force assassins mowed down innocent people with machine guns, used armored tanks from Fort Hood, machine gun fire from US Army helicopters, tear gas, and even reportedly deadly nerve gas to murder the Davidians (which is why very few of them tried to flee the building as it burned). The building was burned to the ground and bulldozed to destroy evidence of the crime. The government then concocted the story that the Davidians had "committed suicide" by setting fire to their own building.
Realizing that the public wouldn't accept the military assault on the community on the alleged basis of an arrest warrant for Koresh on firearms charges, the government subsequently concocted lies about the Davidians sexually abusing children.
Nine of the Branch Davidian survivors were sentenced to long terms in Federal prison, including five with 40 year sentences.
