1. what the Reagan adsiaistratlea has done concerning the Damloff case dees not require any explanationonae-it, and is not alien to Reagan and his edaialstratlen.

neans setting the hostages free. Anything beyond thisirage.

J. Reagan and Ms administration shoulder responsibility for the delay and any negative action that nay take place. This Is because resolving this ease, after the release of rathe; Is la the hands of Megan and Ms administration.

What the hostages are saying so. concerning what happened is an eianple to the American people -ho are facing danger because of the policyy Reagan and his governnent towards opprtttrd peoples.

Rectifying this irregular situation Is the responsibility of the African peoplehole. Let the American people shoulder their responsibilities and recover their frardon and digaity.

We will not renounce our position, why did Reagan surrender ln the Daniloft case? ead his statenent saying that we wish to negotiate with the captors, but that we will not renounce our position or accept their demands. Hr. President! If that Is your position, what have you done for us? My captors do not like to negotiate with the American Covcranent because it Is against their principles to negotiate with the allies of Israel which Is responsible for killing Innocent people In Lebanon, and especially ln the south. My captors want only to satisfy their demands that are known to the American Government. It would be easy to satisfy the denands if Reagan wants to. If as schuict said do not distinguish between Danlloff and our case then why is Danlloff free and we are not? Why art you not solving our caseickly as you solved Daniloffs case. Thia is unfair. Why all this talk aboutrote In my letter, that there were dictation mistakes,rote the latter, under stress and that the letter was not ny opinion.
