Ambush at Ruby Ridge: FBI Whitewash or Justifiable Homicide? The Inside Story on What Really Happened at That Small Cabin in Idaho

Alan W. Bock

On August 21, 1992, a six-man team from the Special Operations Group of the U.S. Marshall’s Service descended upon Randy Weaver’s 20-acre farm known as Ruby Ridge. Within 36 hours, Weaver’s dog was crushed into a pancake form, his son was killed, and his wife was shot down in the doorway of their home while holding their 10-month-old baby. For some reason or other, Weaver went berserk and the situation precipitated a military build-up consisting of a large array of assault vehicles and over 400 heavily armed men who eventually took Randy Weaver into custody. Weaver later wrote his impression of the outbreak of hostilities: “When I reached the first fork in the logging road, a very well-camouflaged person yelled, “Freeze, Randy!’’ I immediately said, “Fuck you,” and retreated 80 to 100 feet toward home. I realized immediately that we had run smack into a ZOG [Zionist Occupational Government]/New World Order ambush.” JB
