MEDIA ADVISORY: U.S. official to describe efforts to rebuild Iraq

WHAT: “Rebuilding Iraq: America’s Role and Responsibility,” a 40-minute presentation followed by audience questions.

WHO: Dan Senor, a top adviser to Iraq reconstruction leader Paul Bremer, and U.S. Rep. George Nethercutt, R-Wash. Sue Donaldson, director of The Forum at the Evans School, will moderate.

WHEN: Monday, Oct. 13, noon.

WHERE: Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs, Parrington Hall, 3rd floor Commons (show media ID and get directions at campus gate).

DETAILS: Nethercutt, who serves on the Defense Appropriations Committee which is considering President Bush’s proposed $87 billion aid package, toured Iraq in late September and will offer a first-hand account. Senor was one of the first civilians to be stationed in Baghdad since U.S. forces took the city. He is a senior adviser to, and spokesman for, Bremer, who heads the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. The discussion, before a mostly student audience, will cover such questions as how much assistance the United States should provide and the proper length of the commitment. The event is part of the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs “From the Forum” series.
