August 30, 2011
August 30, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — "Eight members of the Sept. 11 commission will take part in an Indiana University program on the 2001 terrorist attack just days after its 10th anniversary next month," reports the Associated Press. "University officials say those expected to take part in the program on Sept. 15 include commission chairman and former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean and its vice chairman, former Indiana congressman Lee Hamilton. The school says the members will be together for the first time since the commission's report was released in 2004."

Hamilton, who served 34 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and later co-chaired the Iraq Study Group, is a 1952 graduate of DePauw University.
"Hamilton says the commission's report shaped the country's response to the attacks in many ways and that the gathering in Bloomington will allow commission members to assess efforts to make the country more secure. All but two members of the commission are expected to attend the two-hour public discussion."

Lee H. Hamilton returned to DePauw on March 15 to address "The U.S. Role in the World After Afghanistan and Iraq" in a Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture. A summary including video clips can be accessed here.Back
