Interview with Russell Oswald
QUESTION 16
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

Did you feel, as you were hearing the demands, did you feel that they were reasonable? They were simply demands for prison reform?

RUSSELL OSWALD:

Yes. Ah when I heard the demands that they made, I looked at them quickly. And I said, what are they doing? Are they taking my agenda? It was almost exactly the same things I talked with them on...on ah the radio the day before, or the week before. And I found no big difficulty with most of those demands of theirs. So that I felt well we're home free now. Because if I say that I'm going to do these things, ah they ought to, ah agree to release the hostages.
