    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: OSWALD: "AT THE TIME I WAS SITTING DOWN WATCHING TELEVISION, I HEARD MY SON, LEAVING FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER WITH THE POLICE OFFICERS, SAYING: "I DIDN'T DO IT. I DIDN'T DO IT." SO I HEARD HIM SAY I DIDN'T DO IT. AND I WAS ASKED WHEN I WAS ALLOWED TO SEE HIM IN GOAL AFTERWARDS HAD I ASKED HIM IF HE DID IT. AND I HAVE DEFINITE FEELINGS ABOUT THAT -- I WOULD NOT INSULT MY SON AND ASK HIM IF HE DID IT, BECAUSE I HEARD HIM IN HIS OWN VOICE SAY MANY A TIME, ON THE TELEVISION, "I DID NOT DO IT. I DID NOT DO IT." SO I AM ASSUMING HE IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. THAT IS OUR AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE."



    SEQ. 4: "NO, I THINK -- DAY BEFORE -- I THINK I WATCHED ON TELEVISION AND READ IN THE PAPER WHERE, OF COURSE, ALL THE AGENTS WERE IN DALLAS PROTECTING THE PRESIDENT -- PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S SECURITY. AND SO I WOULD SAY, SINCE MY SON HAD DEFECTED TO RUSSIA, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER SURVEILLANCE. AND, HAD HE BEEN UNDER SURVEILLANCE, FOR THE PRESIDENT'S JOURNEY TO DALLAS, THEN PRESIDENT KENNEDY WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY AND SO WOULD MY SON."
