  • Description

    The White House (?) United States of America

    Medium shot of President Nixon and his cabinet seated around table. Exterior of senate (?) building. Various medium close-up shots of Nixon preparing to deliver speech concerning peace in South East Asia. He animatedly yawn just before the announcer states that they are on air. Medium close-up of President Nixon as he delivers speech. "Good evening my fellow Americans. Tonight I would like to talk to you about a major new initiative of peace...in Indochina". The president further calls for a ceasefire that would not signal an end to conflict but would nevertheless "accomplish one goal that all of us have been working toward, an end to the killing". Medium close-up and close-ups as president outlines three-tiered principles for peace in South East Asia. Speech Ends. President smirks and asks the press to "come in for their usual picture".

    Note: This speech appears to be made just prior to the 'Peace with Honor" speech in early 1973, although there is no supproting documentation to accompany this story.
