Wed, 23 Sep 2009

The investigation into a possible bomb plot involving three men in New York and Denver is reportedly widening to include at least a half-dozen individuals in the U.S., Pakistan and elsewhere. Meanwhile, federal counterterrorism authorities have alerted local police around the country about terrorists’ efforts to attack entertainment centers, hotels and stadiums. To discuss how best to secure a large American city like New York, and whether local and federal authorities are working together effectively, is Chris Dickey , Middle East regional editor for Newsweek and author of " Securing the City: Inside America’s Best Counterterror Force — The NYPD ." We also speak to Lydia Khalil , a former counterterrorism analyst at the NYPD. She’s currently a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
