That wasn't, that wasn't particularly after the riot, it was, it was a continuing type of thing that occurred before the riot and after the riot, and there was no doubt in any of our minds who had been active in the, in the police circles that many of the splinter groups were receiving information comparable to the type of information that would be given to regular military units on how to disassemble and assemble weapons, principles of booby-trapping, principles of small unit tactics and a great many other things that were combi--combinations of our own military forces and many foreign military forces. I think you have to remember that the United States at that time was involved in a, in a guerilla type warfare, and many of our soldiers may have come back with a great deal of knowledge that was applicable to, to the urban battle too.
