The copyrights were inadvertently omitted on the photos in the reviews for two books in our May 25 issue. The four photographs on p. 29 in the review June Four should be ©Ming Pao News; on p. 31 in the review of Beijing Spring, the left-hand photograph should be © Peter Turnley, and the cover photograph should be © David and Peter Turnley. In the June I issue, there were two major errors in the official court transcript of former National Security Council aide Richard Morris’s testimony which we quoted on p. 58, and which EIR has now corrected on the basis of the videotape of the testimony. The court stenographer erred in transcribing Morris’s report of the number of times he met with LaRouche and his associates as“six or seven times in the two years.” He actually said “six or seven times in each of the two years.” Also, Morris said that the U.S. government’s intelligence was “more extensive” than LaRouche’s, rather than, as the court reporter mistranscribed this, “more expensive.”
