San Francisco determined through independent lab, this date, that 10 minute NBC video cassette depicting assassination at Port Kaituma in possession San Francisco, does not contain time readout. Cassette has NBC designation “Guyana 78MO337DOV (5 of 7)”.
BQMRA should request and purchase from NBC an additional duplicate above cassette to place time sequence in “window frame” of video picture. In other words, San Francisco desires copy of tape which has time sequence printed directly on the image of picture when replayed.
“Armed and dangerous. Suicidal tendencies”.
