- Radio talk show host Alex Jones asserted today that he
- that at least 3 of the 4 Delta Force members killed in
- 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
- Cutino. Cutino was the brother of Judge Fran Gull of
Fort Wayne, Indiana.
- The presence at Waco of the 4th dead Delta Force member,
- 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 http://www.inforwars.com.

- The Nitty-gritty on Delta Deaths
- This sober and SCARY analysis of the very recent "mysterious"
- to me!) deaths of a number of military personnel present
and active at
- the government's Waco mass murder is WELL worth reading
- Our respondent Ed Parrish DEFINITELY knows his stuff
on this issue.
- The likelihood that this spate of outrageously unlikely
- suspicious deaths is "ACCIDENTAL" is in fact
less than zero.

Were at Waco!

- From: Ed Parrish
- 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
- 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
- excessive safety measures are fundamental to river crossings.
- is, accidents with even one soldier are extremely rare,
and such multiple
- deaths are almost unheard of. Lieutenant Colonel Boyles
- Ellingson were experienced commandoes and paratroopers.
They had to pass
- strenuous swim tests just to graduate from Ranger and
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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 --
- each action together so the safety officers maintain
absolute control over
- everyone at once. Such range accidents as the one that
- Dimase are not unheard of, particularly on assault ranges,
but caution is
- every NCO's watchword, so accidents like this are extremely
- Dimase was a Ranger, which means he went to rifle ranges
at least monthly
- (most soldiers go only annually), and he probably supervised
- those ranges as well. Once again, we see an experienced
soldier dying an
- inexperienced soldier's death under tightly controlled
- 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
- 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
