One of the first snipers on the scene at the deadly Waco clash in Texas was Wendel Frost, an ATF agent at the time.

Now that he’s retired, Frost, who now lives in Cleveland, can speak openly about the controversial raid in 1993.

Frost said he was frustrated with new coverage that suggested law enforcement went after the Branch Davidian group of its beliefs, the Cleveland Daily Banner wrote.

The truth was, Frost said, the group’s leader, David Koresh, was abusing children and women.

“The thing that actually made us do the high-risk entry was the children,” he told the Bradley Sunrise Rotary Club.
