CU Robert Kennedy speaking: "Already steps have been taken that have been most unfortunate in the election procedure in Vietnam. It's not that I expect the same procedure as we have here in the United States, I recognise that that is impossible, but we're fighting there, we're dying there, we're carrying the major burden of the struggle - out casualties are higher than the south Vietnamese, they have been higher for some time."
BCU Kennedy: "I think the fighting and the dying and the effort should be made by the South Vietnamese and not just by the Americans."

ZOOM INTO CU "The steps that were taken to rule off the ballot the finance minister, the former head of Vietnam I think were unfortunate. I think the people's finance minister was praised by United States officials, General Ky and General Ky's cabinet and to rule him off deserved a good deal of distinction, to rule him off as a communist I think was unfortunate (indistinct).....also to have announced that it didn't matter who wins the election a merger committee is going to run the country goes a long way to making a fraud of the election."
