Counterterrorism Exercise Begins in Conn., N.J.

The nation's largest counterterrorism exercise begins Monday, and it will consist of a mock chemical attack in Connecticut and a biological attack in New Jersey. The five-day drill will test the readiness of federal, state, local and international officials. It's the third such drill, and those who participated in the last one two years ago say it provided some useful lessons.
