TRANSCRIPT: MYER (SEQ. 2): "Without even speaking of the millions who have died, end may still die in Indo-China, the situation in Pakistan promises to be the greatest tragedy of modern history, which will make the concentration camps of Dachau and Buchenwald look like child's play. We have serious reason to think that by November of this year, twenty million innocent people will have been slaughtered in that part of the world. Not by accident, but because your Government and mine are supplying the military material end other kinds of support which is necessary for the Government of West Pakistan to continue to implement these kinds of policies."
