Denver, CO (September 6, 2013) – In honor of the upcoming anniversary of September 11th, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, in partnership with The Denver Post and the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL), will present Colorado Remembers 9/11: Looking at the Future of U.S. National Security.

Following the commemoration, Vincent Carroll of The Denver Post will moderate a panel discussion featuring U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman and U.S. Rep. Jane Harman.  Lieberman and Harman were key contributors to the legislation that created the Department of Homeland Security in the wake of 9/11.  Subsequently, Lieberman served as the first Chairman of the Senate Government Affairs and Homeland Security Committee, and Harman chaired the House Homeland Security Intelligence Subcommittee. 

The panel discussion will provide a retrospective look at 9/11 and the impact it has had on the nation, as well as discuss current national security concerns, including domestic terrorism, extremism, the evolving threat of al-Qaeda, Syria, and the interplay of these issues with U.S. foreign policy.
