With next week's anniversary of September 11 attacks, NPR and The Wilson Center are bringing together a group of thought leaders in research and policy for a public discussion on "America's Role in the World Post 9/11: A New Survey of Public Opinion."

NPR Correspondent Tom Gjelten will moderate the discussion among panelists, which include former CIA Director and U.S. Air Force (Ret.) General Michael Hayden; Founder and President of the Arab American Institute and author James Zogby; and former FBI Deputy Director of National Security Philip Mudd.

This event launches the most recent survey of U.S. public opinion conducted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and is the latest in The National Conversation series. Wilson Center President and CEO Jane Harman will offer an introduction, with a keynote speech from Chicago Council on Global Affairs President Marshall Bouton.
