You said I gotta get inside the mosque and listen not and find out who The Who these guys -- are and what's going on in there.
People critical of you should we be more aggressive to find out what's going on in the Islamic community.
We are continue doing what what we have been doing we haven't changed our approach in that approach is to follow leads wherever those leads take us.
