The images shocked the world. November's brazen, commando-style attack on hotels and cafes in Mumbai, India. When the smoke cleared nearly 180 people were dead, and the job of fighting terrorism had changed forever. But, could it happen here? New York City Police Commissioner, Ray Kelly, is testifying before the House Subcommittee on Homeland Security later today looking at lessons learned from Mumbai.

The hearing will explore the groups involved in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the threats they pose to the U.S., ways to protect domestic, critical infrastructure from attacks, and the support and involvement of the Department of Homeland Security to improve private sector security. Commissioner Kelly joined us to talk about the lessons learned.
