Pardon?

INTERVIEWER:

JOHN NICHOLS:

Well, I think you have to remember that if you've got an apartment house with a hundred and fifty families in it, and you've got a police department or a police patrol of twenty people, it's very difficult. By the time you get into position to begin your sweep, people come and go with relative ease. Unconventional warfare depends on those kinds of tactics. A few shots and you go, and by the time a conventional force mobilizes and gets deployed, you're long gone. I'm not suggesting that there was an enemy agent there, but what I am saying is that the tactics are, are identical, so you could fire a couple of shots out of a window, put the gun in your pocket, and walk out before anybody ever came to, to respond to it, and I think that's what happened in many instances.
