PBS did a show on this last night. The daughter of the Weavers was interviewed and gave a lot of interesting insight into their life and what happened.

The FBI now uses this as an example of what NOT to do in their training.  It was a mess.

The FBI and the US Marshals absolutely messed this thing up! BUT....... we're not sure WHAT their real orders were! Could've been to shoot and kill everyone! It's happened before!

One of the men interviewed on the show last night was with law enforcement there that day and they were given that order - shoot anyone with a weapon.  And all the Weavers were armed.

According to the article from the History Channel I copied, one of the FBI agents, shot someone who was going to make funeral arrangements, for someone. The agent stated that he thought the man had a gun, but he didn't.
This was an ELEVEN day siege. Wow!
