    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 5): KADISH: "We're going to Long Binh to take depositions of two Vietnamese nationals for preference in the case of Captain Medina. We've been ordered to take these depositions by order of the military judge at Fort McPherson, Georgia, to draw at the conclusion of our pretrial sessions which ended last week."



    REPORTER: "Are these persecution witnesses or witnesses for the defence?"



    KADISH: "The defence has not requested to take these depositions, we've ordered to take them by the military judge, these are prosecution witnesses. That is correct."



    REPORTER: "Are you looking for anything that will help your case?"



    KADISH: "well we're certainly going to try."
