General Note / OCR

This document is a speech by Vu Van Thai to an American audience sometime after 1965. It is a criticism of communism, and it uses the recent death of Tu Chung, editor of the newspaper Chinh Luan, as a prominent example of communist repression of free thought and debate. It criticizes Ngo Dinh Diem but expresses hope in the 1963 coup, here described as a revolution, that removed Diem from power.
