Indiana University to host 9/11 Commission members

August 30, 2011

Indiana University Maurer School of Law will host a talk by former U.S. Rep. Lee H. Hamilton, the past vice chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission.

Lee’s talk, “Homeland Security – 10 years after 9/11: What more we must do to make Americans safer,” will be at 10 a.m. Sept. 16 at the law school’s Minton Moot Court Room. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Hamilton's talk coincides with a public discussion featuring members of the 9/11 Commission from 2 to 4 p.m. Sept. 15 at the IU Auditorium, titled, "10 Years Later: The 9/11 Commissioners Reflect." This event will be the first time the commissioners have met together since issuing their landmark report on the attacks on July 22, 2004.

Ken Bode, former NBC News national correspondent, CNN political analyst and PBS "Washington Week in Review" host, will serve as moderator. Questions for the commissioners may be submitted online at http://www.iub.edu/sept11 until 5 p.m. on Sept. 12.

The event Sept. 15 is free, but tickets are required. Tickets will be available from the IU Auditorium Box Office starting Aug. 30 for IU students, faculty and staff, and starting Sept. 6 for the general public, with a limit of four tickets per person. For more information, contact the box office at 812-855-1103.
