Great luck theater would be familiar with Arab Spring it's that kind of concept how something kind of kicks off sale on the Internet on YouTube and takes on the -- it's on at the story gets carried period.
He's carrier is you -- are carriers -- whether it's eastern carriers.
Tracking -- story can incredibly difficult because we have a limited number of linguists and and hear their time is not best friends sitting in front of the television screen monitoring UST she could hear one -- he can only watch one network for 24 hours.
-- Al-Jazeera for example rather than having -- -- sit there who's got fantastically with skills can you just have this program.
Transit -- and highlights can create watch list so why isn't it being used.
All of the did he is using it right so you might guess my point here is it's a fantastic tool that I like this he used better I think -- isn't much better job.
