Did the Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.) and
the A.D.L. Sucker the Feds into April 19 Massacre?

HOUSTON, April 23 (EIRNS)—On April 17, 1961, a mercenary army of Cuban ex-patriots launched an invasion of Cuba, under the direction of the CIA. Despite months of planning, based on intelligence assessments prepared by CIA and military advisers while Eisenhower was President, the poorly disguised "covert" operation was a complete catastrophe, with 114 invaders killed and over 1,200 taken prisoner by Fiedel Castro.

While President John F. Kennedy took responsibility for the defeat, he quickly moved to discover why the CIA-directed operation had failed so miserably. Within months, there was a shakeup at CIA, as both CIA Director Allen Dulles and Richard Bissell, his deputy for planning and the man most responsible for the abortive invasion, were ousted, and Kennedy moved to rein in the intelligence community.

In the wake of this week's deadly blundering by FBI officials in Waco, Texas, which resulted in 86 deaths, including those of 24 children, President Clinton is facing the same problem as JFK did 22 years ago: that of a federal agency which is out of control. The success or failure of the Clinton administration may well hinge on how decisively he addresses this problem. Who are the "experts"?

In her press conference immediately following the final FBI assault on the Branch Davidian compound on April 19, U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno stepped forward to take the blame. "I made the decisions, I'm accountable," she said. In making that decision, to "compress the perimeter" around the compound by using armored vehicles to bash in the walls, then pour in a "non-lethal" but extremely harsh form of tear gas, she said she relied on advise from "experts."

The gruesome results from the April 19 raid demonstrate that the "experts" consulted in planning the final attack were no more competent than those who planned the initial assault.

The siege in Waco began on February 28, when agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) raided the Branch Davidian compound to execute a search warrant seeking evidence of alleged violations of federal weapons laws. As documented in the March 26 issue of Executive Intelligence Review magazine, the ATF actions were triggered by a concerted campaign conducted by the Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.) in both the U.S. and Australia.

C.A.N. is an organization of kidnappers and "deprogrammers" (that is, brainwashers) which gains influence by (and makes its money from) convincing law enforcement officials and the general public that the United States is awash in dangerous mind-controlling cults. Together with the American Family Foundation and the Anti-Defamation League (A.D.L.), C.A.N. has corrupted official government law enforcement agencies as the Waco case and an investigation by the San Francisco police of an A.D.L. national spy ring demonstrate.

[In fact, the A.D.L. has been involved directly, in the events in Waco according to Herb Brin, publisher of the Heritage newspapers in California and a fanatic promoter of the A.D.L. illegal covert operations. In a piece defending the A.D.L.'s national spy operations, Brin writes, "U.S. and Texas authorities have precise documentation (from A.D.L., of course) on the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, and how it operated in the past."]

Investigations of C.A.N. reveal the C.A.N. "experts" use precisely the methods of deprogramming of which they accuse the "cults" they attack, such as isolation, sensory deprivation, threats, and the like.

Further, C.A.N. uses the "confessions" extracted from former members of targeted organizations, to demand that action be taken against those organizations.

The Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.) and Waco

It was this modus operandi which was used by C.A.N. to deploy the ATF against David Koresh and the Branch Davidians in Waco on February 28.

C.A.N. and its Australian affiliate planted with the ATF officials a series of stories from deprogrammed former members warning that Koresh "was heading in one of the following directions: a final Jonestown massacre; an armed confrontation with authorities; or some bizarre behavior, such as an attempted assassination of a public figure."

With this profile, ATF bypassed local Waco authorities, who knew and had dealings with Koresh, instead launched what one of these officials had described as a "Gestapo-style assault" on the compound. Under criticism from local officials and military consultants for their tactics, which resulted in the killing of four ATF officers and an unknown number of Branch Davidians, ATF officials justified their actions by referring back to the profile provided by C.A.N., as if that constituted any kind of evidence at all.

Enter the FBI

Although it is premature to make conclusive judgments as to what really occurred on April 19—and indeed it may be impossible, since fire destroyed much of the evidence--it is clear that the FBI, which took over the operation from ATF, and the FBI's "experts," are ultimately responsible for the tragic results on that day.

Primary blame must be placed on the "experts' to whom Attorney General Reno has referred repeatedly. These are centered in two related agencies of the FBI based in Quantico, Virginia, the Behavioral Sciences Unit and the Hostage Response Team. Both provided the psychological profiles employed by FBI negotiators during the 51-day siege. And both are deeply penetrated by the Anti-Defamation League (A.D.L.).

In fact, the Hostage Response Teams' "Delta Team" was among the forces deployed against Lyndon LaRouche and his colleagues on October 6-7, 1986, during the 400-man raid against LaRouche and the offices of his associates in Leesburg, Virginia. both C.A.N. and the A.D.L. were central to illegal Justice Department and FBI operations against LaRouche.

The tactics used by the FBI during the Waco standoff, including psychological warfare have been denounced by many law enforcement officials as the opposite of what is necessary to promote a peaceful resolution to a standoff.

As to why the FBI decided to move on April 19, there are many conflicting stories.

*Was there evidence of child abuse? While Attorney General Reno said the experts told her there was, the FBI now denies it. FBI Director William Sessions said there is "no contemporaneous information" confirming child abuse. In fact, the only evidence ever presented on child abuse was from C.A.N.-controlled former members.

*Was it clear that there could be no peaceful settlement? Reno said she was told, by the "experts," that nothing would change no matter how long they waited; that Koresh et al. were not coming out. Yet Koresh's lawyer, Dick DeGuerin of Houston, the only man from outside the compound (other than FBI agents) who spoke with Koresh over the last two weeks, said his client wanted to come out and have his day in court.

*Did Koresh order mass suicide through immolation? Although this fits neatly with the C.A.N.-developed profile, there is only the word of the FBI to prove it. DeGuerin, who has interviewed five of the nine survivors, says there was no suicide pact, and that the Branch Davidians did not start the fire. The Washington Times quotes numerous experts who say the CS tear gas used by the FBI—a gas banned for military use under Geneva Protocols—could have incapacitated and disoriented many inside the house, making it impossible for them to escape the flames and smoke.

Defense Attorney Jeff Kearney of Fort Worth, who represents one of the survivors, said the fire will help the government. "Government agents can say what they want now and there's little physical evidence to dispute it," he told reporters.

Clean House at Justice Department

President Clinton, Attorney General Reno, and members of both Houses of Congress have called for investigations into the Waco atrocity. These investigations must start with the so-called experts—Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.), The Anti-Defamation League (A.D.L.), the FBI psychological units at Quantico—and must include scrutiny of any federal officials who have given them credibility, or who have attempted to cover up for them.

That many of Reno's comments justifying her decision have been contradicted almost immediately raises the possibility that she may have been "set up" as the fall guy. One official who should be questioned with this in mind is Justice Department Official Mark Richard, who was one of the small group which met with Reno when she made her final decision to proceed with the April 19 actions. Richard, the founder of the Office of Special Investigations, has a long history as a top agent within the U.S. Government of the A.D.L. and the Israeli Mossad.

C.A.N. has already begun a coverup of its role. Although it was C.A.N. which initiated the action, through its corruption of the ATF, this week C.A.N. officials have been out in force, arguing that the FBI was unable to cope with Koresh because the Bureau had dumped C.A.N. input. C.A.N. Director Cynthia Kisser has called for a much larger role for C.A.N. in dealing with cults in the future.

It is likely that such terrible incidents will recur, unless the corruption of our federal law enforcement agencies is ended. President Clinton must act as JFK did after the Bay of Pigs—take the blame, and then clean house.

This article is a reprint from the May 3, 1993 edition of The New Federalist which is available from Box 889, Leesburg, Virginia, 22075.



In a taped conversation with a lawyer, David Koresh blasted the notion that his church members planned a mass suicide. This statement was in an Associated Press article entitled "Koresh Tape Blasts Mass Suicide Idea" printed in the Los Angeles Times on May 29, 1993. There's no way that any true born-again Christian under any circumstances would ever commit suicide, abuse children, or abuse anyone. These are unrealistic, damning types of accusations, buzz-word fables, created by the criminally insane Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.) against Christianity and broadcast by media who have been corrupted by this preposterous Nazi brainwashing organization.

C.A.N. tells these many blatant lies because it wants to destroy the credibility of holy Christian works of God, to destroy the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech and the freedom of the Christian press. The Cult Awareness Network's purpose for telling lies is to destroy the unwitting souls of the general public that hear these atrocious fallacies. Of course, C.A.N's lying stories cause the general public to needlessly and foolishly fear the true Christians. The Christians are as innocent as lambs before God of any of these slanderous, false charges that this unscrupulous, unbelievably wicked organization constantly makes against true Christians, Christian churches and their pastors. First Timothy 1:9-10 states that the Law is for the lawless. If enough Christian churches join together against these lawless ones, the Cult Awareness Network, in a class action lawsuit for slander, we could have together far more than enough witnesses against C.A.N. to be able to win hands down even in the secular courtrooms, but only with a jury trial. Christians' doctrines may differ, nonetheless, we are called, all of us to stand against all evil. The Christian's safety lies in resistance. God's commands expressly state, "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). Give no "place to the devil" (Ephesians 4:27), "having done all, to stand" (Ephesians 6:13), and James 1:22 states we must be doers of the Word of God (resisters of Satan) or we deceive our own selves."

For our Christian safely, Cult Awareness Network (C.A.N.) members must be prosecuted for murder, kidnap, rape, pillage, thievery, brainwashing, violation of civil rights and much more. Millions of lives will be spared by following God's above mentioned commands, but only if C.A.N. is stopped immediately. Millions of lives will be lost (destroyed) if the Cult Awareness Network isn't stopped immediately. My churches and I disagree with Koresh and his use of weapons. Obviously he was misguided in his Christianity, as many professing Christians are today because of the many false prophets with their many false doctrines of our time.

Christians are not to use weapons of carnality, Satan's weapons, such as guns, bullets, knives, etc. Jesus said "Put up again they sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword: (Matthew 26:52). Jesus is always right. Koresh perished!! "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled" (II Corinthians 10: 4-6). This weapon, the true weapon of the thoroughly seasoned Christian, is THE WORD OF GOD.

My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11

You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.

Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.

Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
