FBI Vet Recalls the Bureau’s Softer Side

In an interview, Noesner makes it clear that he still balances his successes, like the outcome in Montana, against the FBIs failure in dealing with the Branch Davidians.

You never hear people talking about Montana anymore, and Waco, which was 51 days, is a never-ending story, he says. If we had achieved what we wanted to achieve in Waco, that would have been a non-event, at least in terms of history.

In Stalling for Time, Noesner analyzes his performance and that of the FBI from a removed perspective. The result is engaging and full of wise words a best-case scenario for an FBI hostage negotiator.
