Delta Force Members
Allegedly At Waco
Being Killed Off?
Radio talk show host Alex Jones asserted today that he has confirmed
that at least 3 of the 4 Delta Force members killed in training
accidents on 2 successive days last week were at Waco during the siege
that killed 86 Branch Davidians.
The 3 dead Delta Force soldiers confirmed to have been at Waco were Lt.
Col. Timothy A. Boyles, Sgt. Eric Ellingson, and Master Sgt. Gaetano
Cutino. Cutino was the brother of Judge Fran Gull of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The presence at Waco of the 4th dead Delta Force member, Sgt. Jamey
Dimase, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, Ga., has yet
to be confirmed or denied.
Alex Jones can be heard daily on shortwave radio at 9.400 MHz from 1pm
2pm. Jones also has a web page at

The Nitty-gritty on Delta Deaths
This sober and SCARY analysis of the very recent "mysterious" (well, not
to me!) deaths of a number of military personnel present and active at
the government's Waco mass murder is WELL worth reading EXTREMELY CAREFULLY!
Our respondent Ed Parrish DEFINITELY knows his stuff on this issue.
The likelihood that this spate of outrageously unlikely and utterly
suspicious deaths is "ACCIDENTAL" is in fact less than zero.

This is terrifying.
I was a platoon leader in the 1/75 Rangers and later, after flight school
and an air cavalry assignment, I flew MH-6s and AH-6s for special
operations. Only one Army unit flies MH-6s. It's Company A of the 160th
Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne), originally Task Force 160,
which operates out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
Safety is the most important consideration in any military-training
operation. If a soldier dies, the generals start ending careers with the
first field grade officer in the food chain.
I was immensely lucky. Year after year, we conducted dangerous training all
the time, but we planned carefully and rehearsed every action so we wouldn't
kill anybody. Knock on wood, not one soldier under my command ever suffered
so much as a broken finger.
Occasionally despite everyone's best efforts, accidents happen. And if
these needless deaths are accidents, this is outrageous.
But none of these accidents has the "ring of truth," and I write as a
soldier who has done all the things involved in each one and who has planned
and executed large operations involving every kind of training involved in
this rash of deaths -- including piloting a "little bird" into landing
zones. Noncoms are experts at keeping soldiers alive, and this flurry of
chain-of-command failures verges on impossibility.
The two river-crossing deaths:
Intense rehearsals, life guards, emergency flotation gear, and
excessive safety measures are fundamental to river crossings. The result
is, accidents with even one soldier are extremely rare, and such multiple
deaths are almost unheard of. Lieutenant Colonel Boyles and Sergeant
Ellingson were experienced commandoes and paratroopers. They had to pass
strenuous swim tests just to graduate from Ranger and Special Forces
schools, they had made many river crossings in their careers, and they were
in outstanding physical condition -- or they'd have been forced to leave the
unit in which they served. These men are a special breed of cat which lives
comfortably on the edge daily, and they are highly unlikely to have died as
victims of a mere river, especially under such tightly controlled
The death at the landing zone:
Helicopter operations are inherently dangerous, so you brief and
rehearse everything before you do it for real. The briefings,
rehearsals of
actions in the aircraft, rehearsals of actions at the landing zone,
beginning-to-end daylight rehearsals for night operations, and the pilots
briefing prior to the operation ensure everyone knows what's going on and
all "heads are on straight." Special operators know better than anyone how
to do this kind of insertion, and indeed they are the only soldiers in the
Army who get a chance to ride into landing zones on this particular
model of
aircraft. Our dead special operator was Master Sergeant Cutino -- MASTER
SERGEANT -- a senior NCO who had been around for a long, long time in the
Army. His death would have been believable had he been a private, so green
he squeaked, but I don't buy it for a pro.
The death at the weapons range:
Weapons-range safety is entrained behavior -- everybody performs
each action together so the safety officers maintain absolute control over
everyone at once. Such range accidents as the one that claimed Sergeant
Dimase are not unheard of, particularly on assault ranges, but caution is
every NCO's watchword, so accidents like this are extremely rare. Sergeant
Dimase was a Ranger, which means he went to rifle ranges at least monthly
(most soldiers go only annually), and he probably supervised soldiers at
those ranges as well. Once again, we see an experienced soldier dying an
inexperienced soldier's death under tightly controlled conditions.
Which, with WACO being the first thread, is the second thread tying all
these "accidental" deaths together. We see here four mentally strong,
physically fit, experienced commandoes, each of whom worked a
rank-appropriate, troop-command position, dying deaths they would have
prevented their most inexperienced soldiers from dying.
Every one of these tough, experienced soldiers knew how to detect threats
and deal out death to prevent their own, hand to hand if need be. So if
this is multiple assassination, we'd all better watch it.

Al Cuppett informed me yesterday by phone that two more military
that were at Waco are dead. They were Special Forces observers.
