(Washington, D.C.) – Ralph Nader and Busboys & Poets will host an unusual roundtable discussion on Monday, September 12 looking at the tenth anniversary of 9/11 in a forthright way that promotes forward thinking.
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.
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. – Ralph Nader, consumer advocate and people’s lawyer.
This memorable presentation will be held at 2021 14th St NW, and is open to the public.
