"ATF agents reported that the Branch Davidians at Waco fired .50 caliber sniper rifles at
ATF agents attempting to execute a search warrant. ATF had requested the use of
Bradley Fighting Vehicles to execute the search warrant because the Bradley is believed
capable of withstanding .50 caliber firearms. But the Bradley's were not used and four
agents were killed.14"

Considering how supposedly well armed, trained and prepared the BD were they seriously got their asses stomped. Also, taking into account the ineptitude of the BATF agents and their arrival in the back of a livestock trailer and their multiple incidents of self inflicted and friendly fire, it is amazing only a handfull were killed. (I don't buy that the BD were trying to kill their attackers beyond defensive actions).

More bullshit. No ATF agent was killed by a .50 BMG bullet. Small arms and fratricide is what stopped the ATF.

False.

The four agents that were killed were not killed with .50 cal... and it is thought that three of them were killed by one of their own.

Hell, a .50'll go right through a Bradley!

But the point cleverly does not say they were killed by fifty caliber rounds.

I thought the BATFE showed up in cattle trailers not Bradleys?

They did, but then they requested Bradleys for protection from the .50s the BD alledgedly had
