Allin and Nicola,

I am leaving the country tomorrow and can provide this additional info on
the CNN use of old footage.  I expect more information by the time I
return.   For now one of my family members reports [identification excised
unless I get permission; I do have name and email address]:

"I trust --- to have accurately reported this information.  I have known
--- for 15-20 years, and served on the --- local committee for  several
years when --- was the program director.  Whether I agree with --- or not
on strategies and interpretations that one derives from facts (and --- and
I have quite different strategies and interpretations resulting from this
attack), I have always found --- to be very careful to be  accurate about
the facts  that he reports."

I have now asked a second family member to see if the videos themselves are
directly accessible, but will not be able to report on that before the week
of October 8.

Paul Z.
