    TRANSCRIPT:



    "--- TO VARIOUS COUNTRIES - AND THE SAME COMMITTEE HEARD FROM FORMER UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE NICHOLAS KATZENBACH, THAT OTHER MILLIONS HAVE BEEN SPEND AND APPARENTLY NOBODY KNOWS WHERE"



    "WHERE YOU AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE MILITARY DIDN'T KNOW, DIDN'T HAVE RECORDS, "AND STILL DOESN'T HAVE RECORDS OF THE AMOUNT THAT WAS PROVIDED TO THE GOVT. IN VIETNAM AND IN THAILAND?"



    "NO, I WAS NOT AWARE OF THAT, AND I'M SURPRISED CERTAINLY IN THE CASE OF THAILAND- I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT - VIETNAM A WARTIME SITUATION. I THINK IT KIND OF BECOMES MORE DIFFICULT!"



    "DON'T YOU THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THAT, UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE? SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF IT - I'M NOT SAYING YOU PERSONALLY WERE RESPONSIBLE



    "YES, I THINK THAT'S TRUE - I SUPPOSE THEY WOULD NOT HAVE VOLUNTEERED THE INFORMATION THAT NO RECORDS WERE BEING KEPT. THE GREAT DIFFICULTY IN THE DEPT., OF STATE, IN MY JUDGEMENT, IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE INACCESSIBILITY OF THE VERY TOP OFFICIALS THERE IS A GREAT INCLINATION TO SIGN OFF THE DIFFICULTY OF BRINGING OUR PROBLEMS UP - AND IT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WHICH TENDS TO GIVE US A VERY GRAVE KIND OF HEDGE ALL YOUR BEST POLICY (?)
