What I think, Corbett, is that Oswald's short statement was edited because three times in that short statement, he requested a lawyer. He asked for legal representation. Twice. Then he asked for legal assistance. And when a guy has only got a minute to speak, and he repeats the same request three times, it's obviously very important to him.
So, whether CNN specifically edited his statement or if it was done by someone else is NOT the issue. If they got it that way from someone else, so be it. But, the point is that it was edited, shortened to hide the fact that Oswald asked for a lawyer 3X in 60 seconds.
