NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports that the FBI admitted yesterday that federal agents may have fired tear gas canisters into the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas in 1993. Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI Director Louis Freeh ordered an internal inquiry into why it took six years to disclose that agents may have fired potentially flammable tear gas canisters on the final day of the standoff with the Branch Davidian cult.
