Denver, CO (August 29, 2014) – 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: Emerging Threats to U.S. National Security featuring General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Ret.).

Following a commemoration presented by the Colorado National Guard, former Washington Post Editor and Washington Bureau Chief for Cox News, Andy Alexander, will moderate a national security discussion with General David H. Petraeus. General Petraeus served 37 years in the U.S. military, including as commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and as commander of the U.S. Central Command. Following retirement from the military in August 2011, he served for 14 months as the Director of the CIA.

General Petraeus will draw upon his considerable experience as a combat commander in both Iraq and Afghanistan to address some of the top national security issues facing the United States, such as the spread of the Islamic State throughout the Middle East, and the coming U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan.
