    Fighting terrorism in New York

    Now, 10 years after 9/11, with an investment of billions of dollars, Kelly has created, what he believes, is the most powerful and technologically advanced counter-terrorism bureau that anyone has ever seen.

    By air, land and sea - the nation's largest counter-terrorism squad is on the beat in America's largest city. One thousand officers - many of them armed like soldiers - are part of a presence that is meant to send a message: New York City is too tough a target. NYPD counter-terrorism is the creation of police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

    Hundreds of Muslim immigrant parents now have their kids playing for the NYPD. The trouble with counter-terrorism is that the cops have to bat a thousand every day - the terrorists only have to get through once. And it very nearly happened on Kelly's watch last year when a Pakistani terrorist parked a car bomb in Times Square.

    This was the scene after a street vendor saw smoke coming out of the car and called a cop. The bomb squad discovered the bomb and defused it. Later, the FBI built a bomb just like it to see what would've happened.

    Kelly: We've been lucky. But we've been good. And, certainly as the Times Square bombing is concerned we were lucky. And we'll take luck any time.
    Smoke and mirrors. There always has been and will be someone or some way to beat the system in place.
