    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 1: MITCHELL: "I BELIEVE THE FAULT IN GREAT PART, LIES WITH THE DECEPTION WHICH WAS PRACTISED UPON THESE PEOPLE OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. THE PRIOR ADMINISTRATION ATTEMPTED TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THROUGH THE ILLUSION OF WORDS, THROUGH THE PROJECTION OF SUCCEEDING IMAGES OF IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS WHICH WERE REPLACED BY MORE IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS WHEN PREVIOUS COMMITMENTS COULD NOT BE MET.

WE WILL SUPPORT THE PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY, AND WE WILL LIKEWISE CURTAIL THE MILITANT FACTIONS WHOSE SOLE AIM IS THE CREATION OF THE VIOLENT CONFRONTATION. IT SEEMS OBVIOUS TO US THAT THE FOREIGN POLICY OF THIS GOVERNMENT CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE FORMULATED IN THE STREETS OF WASHINGTON OR IN THE STREETS OF ANY OTHER CITY OF THIS COUNTRY."
