The military vehicles are older models than those used in the actual siege. This was likely done because the U.S. military would not participate in filming, so the filmmakers had to rely on private collections. See more »
You've looked to me to be your leader. To guide you on this journey. But I'm no leader. I'm a follower, just like you. God has instructed me to stay here and wait for His sign. This is our time to prove through suffering that we are worthy of the miracle that's to come. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming, I promise you.

This relies on extensive book info from former Mt Carmel resident David Thibodeau and the FBI negotiator, Gary Noesner, who had arranged the agreement by Koresh In the final days of the siege to surrender.
Koresh had agreed in the last days of the siege to leave immediately after writing up a Seven Seals tract to release to the world. Koresh had only finished the first part of it when the FBI sent the teargas tanks in ripping holes in the building, as scores died.
The show humanizes the residents and shows how the initial assault on the church likely took place. It also shows Koresh's relationships with teen mothers, which was the unpleasant side of Koresh's camp culture, but not something requiring a tortures and a mass execution to be carried out by the ATF and FBI. This one is much better than several presentations that have whitewashed the excessive force actions by the government.
