The transcript, being studied by committee and Justice Department investigators to determine if she violated U.S. laws on treason or on efforts to undermine military morale, quotes Miss Fonda as telling U.S. servicemen: "Just like the Thieu regime in Saigon which is sending its . . . soldiers recklessly into dangerous positions for fear that it. will be replaced by the U.S. government if it fails to score some strategic military gains, so Nixon is continuing to risk your lives and the lives of American prisoners of war under the bomb in a hist desperate gamble to keep his office come. November." During another broadcast to American airmen. Miss Fonda is quoted as saying they "know that when Nixon says the war is winding down that he's lying, that he has simply changed his tactics."
