Amid -- so it's -- one thing it's 23 different kinds of information whether it's -- information whether it's.
Information garnered by many other kind of intelligence collection include what an -- does helps -- -- after terror cells.
Which helps us to get after the internal workings of some of these cells that are in Afghanistan -- in Iraq.
