    TRANSCRIPT: RUSK: "THIS SET OFF A LARGE RANGE OF RACIAL FEELING THROUGHOUT THE CONGO BECAUSE THERE WAS SOME SUSPICION THAT SOMEHOW THESE MERCENARIES WERE CONNECTED WITH GOVERNMENTS OUTSIDE - THAT THERE WAS SOME SORT OF WHITE CONSPIRACY TO OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT IN THE CONGO & TAKE OVER. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE. NEVERTHELESS THERE WAS WIDESPREAD FEELING ABOUT THE FACT, AND THERE WAS A RAPID BUILDUP OF INTENSE FEELING AIMED AT THE WHITES IN THE CONGO, INCLUDING 3000 OR SO U.S. CITIZENS. THERE WAS A VERY DELICATE SITUATION THERE LAST WEEKEND, IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE GAVE SOME IMMEDIATE, TANGIBLE SUPPORT TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CONGO."
