My old friend Bill Anderson kindly asked me about the Waco coverup during the question-and-answer portion of my spiel at last week’s Mises Institute conference. Here’s my response: The feds got away with covering up the worst parts of that atrocity – or at least with delaying the damning evidence so long that the political damage was minimized. Same thing happened with Obama’s coverup of the torture scandal. I worked in a hat-tip to the heroic John Kiriakou, the CIA official who blew the whistle on torture – and who was sent to prison by Obama and Eric Holder’s Justice Department (the only CIA official to serve time in the torture scandal).
I scrunched this video down slightly to get it to fit on the blog; a higher quality version is available here at about one hour into the taping.
