Haven't read it. If it was written by the gov, then yeah, I'm not surprised it laid all blame on Koresh.
I did read the wiki on the siege the other day and assume it draws from the Danforth report. The wiki also makes a point to display the POV of Koresh apologists.
I'm not saying the ATF couldn't have done better. Just look at the outcome. What I am saying is the ATFs actions, faulty or not, had better intentions for the children than any actions Koresh ever made, and therefore when doling out blame for the children's deaths, Koresh is gets a ton to the ATF's ounce.
