Event date: Monday, September 12, 2011 (This event is free and open to the public.)
Time: 12:30- 2:00 pm
Place: Busboys & Poets, 2021 14th St NW; (14th and V St NW), Washington, D.C.
Ralph Nader and Busboys & Poets will host a thought-provoking roundtable discussion on Monday, September 12, 2011 looking at the tenth anniversary of 9/11 in a forthright way that promotes forward thinking.
Roundtable participants will include:
Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell and adjunct professor of government at William & Mary University;
Mike German, policy counsel on National Security, Immigration and Privacy at the ACLU and former FBI agent;
Bruce Fein, adjunct scholar with the American Enterprise Institute and former executive editor of World Intelligence Review; and
Ralph Nader, consumer advocate and people’s lawyer.
Nader recently suggested in a USA TODAY article that many Americans might want to pause to recognize – or unlearn – those reactions and overreactions to 9/11 that have gravely harmed our country and other regions abroad. He says we should do this so we don’t allow such serial blowbacks in the future.
