    LONDON SHOTS: PAPANDREOU SPEAKING (SOF)



    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER: "WOULD A CHANCE IN AMERICAN PRESIDENCY BENEFIT YOUR CAUSE?"



    PAPANDREOU: "IT WOULD HAVE HAD IT IT BEEN ROBERT KENNEDY OR McCARTHY. BUT WITH KENNEDY DEAD AND McCARTHY HAVING LITTLE CHANCE OF BEING ELECTED IT'S BETWEEN NIXON AND HUMPHREY OR JOHNSON, INDEED WHO'LL MOST LIKELY BE A CANDIDATE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WITH NO DIFFERENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY WHICH WE BELIEVE WILL STILL BE DOMINATED BY THE PENTAGON AND THE CIA."



    REPORTER: "WHERE DO YOU THINK THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT $1000 UP TO NOW?"



    PAPANDREOU: "CERTAINLY AND CLEARLY ON THE SIDE OF THE JUNIA. WITHOUT ANY SUBSTITUTE AND THIS IS WHY WE FEEL THE WESTERN ALLIES OF THE UNITED STATES HAVE A VERY SPECIAL BURDEN. THEY MUST PROTEST THIS SUPPORT OF THE ONLY FASCIST STATE WHICH WE'VE GOT IN EUROPE. THEY SHOULD NOT ALLOW ANOTHER MUNICH."
