1. Nixon, medium close shot at microphones: "As I leave Saigon after brief visit... it would be unthinkable not to support the cause of freedom... United States forces, my evaluation is, they know why they are here. Morale is excellent. They are glad to be here and I think they're doing a fine job for the United States and for the cause of freedom." (45') _-_ 2. "The first issue is what the goal of the United States should be. I believe it should be nothing less than victory... (Wash administration)... on that issue there is agreement." (15')
