New York is reeling after a rental truck drove into a pedestrian and bike path in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and leaving 11 others injured. Who is the suspect? Did he act alone? And was this a suicide mission gone wrong? Retired NYPD Lieutenant Darrin Porcher joins us tonight to discuss some of these questions. Muhammed A. Chaudhry, Communications Director for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, shares his views of the American Muslim reaction to the attack on NYC. Federal law enforcement authorities have now taken the lead on the investigation of the attack on Downtown Manhattan. Michael Balboni, former New York State Director of Homeland Security, provides an overview of the national implications and next steps.
