From 9/11 to Today: What Have We Learned?

Tue September 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

From 9/11 to Today: What Have we Learned?

From Afghanistan to Guantanamo:

Following the attacks on 9/11 the Bush Administration opted for a “war on terrorism,” which tragically is still continuing. This important forum will draw on the expertise and personal experiences of the speakers to consider some overlooked consequences of that choice and implications for the present.

Guest Speakers:

Danny Sjursen is a retired US Army Major from Staten Island, who has served combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and who has become a leading critic of the “forever wars.”

Nancy Hollander is a distinguished criminal defense attorney, who represented Guantanamo prisoner Mohamedou Ould Slahi and other politically persecuted individuals, including Chelsea Manning.

Moderator: Carolyn “Rusti” Eisenberg, Co-founder, Brooklyn For Peace;
Professor of US History and American Foreign Policy, Hofstra University
