Senate Hearing on Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

Well, Congress is back in session and the hearing schedule starts off with a hearing in the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (Senate HS Committee) on the Lessons from the Mumbai Terrorist Attacks. The hearing will be held on January 8th at 2:00 pm EST. Now I did not see any reports about the Mumbai attacks involving attacks on any chemical facilities. I do think, however, that there are probably security lessons to be learned for high-risk chemical facilities. Anyone that read my blog on the DHS 5 year Terror Forecast knows that I think that a fast attack like this could very successfully executed against almost any high-risk chemical facility in the United States. The Senate HS Committee web page today shows a single panel that will address the committee. The panel members will be:
Charles E. Allen – DHS Arthur M. Cummings – FBI Raymond W. Kelly – NY PD
This should be an interesting discussion.
