A 9/11 Anniversary Conversation with Former Vice President Richard Cheney:Ten Years After: Lessons Learned, Lessons Unlearned

Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations will not be accepted. We welcome you to watch the event live on this page.

In the ten years since the harrowing attacks in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania, Americans have been through a difficult and emotional process. We have coped with the loss of loved ones, commemorated the nation's heroes, and battled to bring the terrorists and those who harbor them to justice.

Then-vice president Richard B. Cheney was at the epicenter of the 9/11 attacks, and he helped guide the nation through mourning and war. In the first Washington event since the release of his memoir, In My Time, Vice President Cheney will sit down at AEI for a conversation about that day a decade ago, the decisions made since, lessons learned, and lessons that have not been learned. The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes will moderate.
