Waco was an American city in the state of Texas.

The Branch Davidians were a group based out of a compound in Waco, which was infamously raided by the FBI in an ill-fated siege. Using CS gas grenades, the FBI's attack resulted in the deaths of eighty people within the compound, including twelve children whom the FBI had been trying to rescue. According to a classified report, the highly flammable CS gas had contributed to a fire that swept through the compound during the attack. (Operation Hell Gate)

Jack Bauer referenced the Waco siege while preparing to rescue his family from Ira Gaines' compound, telling Nina Myers that he didn't want to risk bringing in the authorities and causing a similar situation. ("Day 1: 11:00am-12:00pm")
