A roundtable discussion was held on September 12, 2011, at Busboys & Poets in Washington, D.C. It featured Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, US Army (ret), an ex-Chief of Staff to Secretary of State, Colin Powell. Ralph Nader was on the panel and also served as the moderator for the event. It dealt generally with the "US government's reaction to 9/11." Col. Wilkerson warned that the US is "marching towards a war...with Iran," which will inevitably create a conflict with the Pentagon and "a huge Constitutional crisis." He said that Israel, and the Neocons, are "building a drumbeat" for such a war.
