President Clinton spoke to reporters in the Rose Garden on the administration’s role in the events of the previous day, when the members of an armed religious sect in Waco, Texas, perished in a fire in their compound. The religious cult had been holed up in their compound since February, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms officials tried unsuccessfully to assault the cult’s complex, where the cult had been accused of stockpiling illegal weapons. President Clinton said he was responsible for the decision to begin pressuring cult members to leave the compound by using tear gas and battering rams against their buildings, and expressed his sorrow at the tragic loss of life in the fire, apparently set by the cult members. close
