Ex-SEAL Team 6 Commander: Is LV Really A Terrorist Target?

You know them from the movies, jumping out of planes into the dark of night, planting bombs deep underwater or taking out targets after slinking unseen through enemy territory.

Most of us know that special forces exist in the various military branches, but few of us know what they really do or who they are.

Richard Marcinko knows. Marcinko was the first commander of SEAL Team 6, founded after the disastrous rescue attempt of hostages in Iran in 1979. He is in Las Vegas this week to sign copies of his book, "Rogue Warrior: Curse of the Infidel," the 18th in a series.

He shares his own personal story, and whether Las Vegas is even on the radar of international terrorist organizations.
