Interview with Cyrus Vance
QUESTION 9
INTERVIEWER:

So at the point when the federal troops are on the streets and guard is federalized, what are the levels of engagement?

CYRUS VANCE:

Force to be used?

INTERVIEWER:

Yeah.

CYRUS VANCE:

The levels of force to be used go through a progression starting with unloaded rifles, with bayonets fixed but sheathed up through three other steps ending up with loaded rifles and bare bayonets fixed.
