    TRANSCRIPT: SENATOR FULBRIGHT: "OH YES, IT'S EXTREMELY CRITICAL FOR US. I'M NOT CLEAR WHAT THE OBJECTIVE OF THE AMERICAN OPERATION TODAY IS--THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE, WHETHER IT IS TO PERMANENTLY OCCUPY THE COUNTRY OR PREVENT IT'S OCCUPATION BY THE NORTH VIETNAMESE, OR TO IT'S A KIND OF ANCILLARY OPERATION, I GUESS. THE HO CHI MINH TRAIL THAT'S CLEAR THAT OPERATION....BUT THE OTHER OPERATION IS REALLY AGAIN INTERVENING IN A CIVIL WAR BETWEEN THE PATHET LAO AND THE ROYAL LAOTION GOVERNMENT."



    INTERVIEWER: "DO YOU THINK WE'RE GETTING INVOLVED IN A NEW VIETNAM-TYPE WAR?"



    SENATOR FULBRIGHT: "THAT'S WHAT I'M VERY AFRAID OF...THAT WE WILL GRADUALLY BE SUCKED INTO A GREATER INVOLVEMENT. SO FAR AS I KNOW WE DO NOT HAVE ANY GROUND TROOPS THERE...BUT WE'RE BOMBING IT VERY INTENSIVELY AS THE PAPERS HAVE REPORTED--SEVERAL PAPERS HAVE AND THERE'S NO REASON TO DOUBT THE ACCURACY OF THESE REPORTS."
