FROM THIS EPISODE

Next week, both Chicago and Seattle will be disrupted by staged catastrophes in the largest domestic security drill in American history. The exercise, called TOPOFF2, features a phony terrorist group called GLODO, a simulated -dirty bomb- attack, and the spread of a fictional biological agent. The phony scenarios will be acted out to test America-s readiness for another attack by terrorists. What-s the risk of another, real attack on American soil? Do first-responders have sufficient funding to combat such an attack? Will TOPOFF2 make the country safer, or is it more drama than substance? We speak with a cold war historian from Whittier College, security and preparedness experts from the Anser Institute and Rand Corporation, and the Mayor of Seattle.

Called -Parlor Maid- by the FBI, she allegedly had simultaneous affairs with Smith and another FBI agent. Andy Murr, who reports from Los Angeles for Newsweek magazine, says yesterday-s six-count indictment could result in a 40-year prison sentence for Smith.
