32. "that memorandum was written before we then went to the United Nations."
Edited on Tue Jun-07-05 06:51 PM by necso
So the minutes are accurate then? (That is, is this memo really minutes from some meeting that took place as depicted in the memo? If so, do these minutes accurately describe the understanding reached at that meeting -- even if only by a majority of parties in attendance -- and even if this is only one historical data point that "runs counter to the trend of others"? ) (Yes or no answers, please.)
