CHESTERTOWN, MD—Do you have a question about American security in a post 9/11 world for four top counter-terrorism experts to address? If so, you can email it in advance of the special panel discussion taking place Thursday, Sept. 8, at Washington College. Marking the 10-year anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on the United States, the panel, titled “9/11 NOW,’’ will convene in Decker Theater, Gibson Center for the Arts, at 5 p.m
To submit questions or topics for the panel, email them by midnight, Wednesday, Sept. 7, to Matthew Icenroad, Assistant to the President, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sponsored by the College’s Richard L. Harwood Colloquy and the Goldstein Program in Public Affairs, the event is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required. Those unable to get to campus can watch the event live from the College Website: www.washcoll.edu.
College President Mitchell B. Reiss, author of Negotiating with Evil: When to Talk to Terrorists (2010, Open Road), will moderate. (CNBC’s Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood was originally announced as moderator but had to cancel because of a work conflict: he will be covering President Obama’s speech on job creation later that evening.)
The panelists will be CIA veteran Cofer Black, retired U.S. Navy Admiral Dennis Blair, George Mason University professor and author Audrey Cronin, and Harvard professor of international affairs Sarah Sewall. Each brings a unique perspective based on his or her experiences or research in the fields of warfare, intelligence and international security issues.
