Former FBI agent to share insight into Sept. 11 attacks
Lakewood Center Associates will open its series of monthly luncheon programs Sept. 18, with a special presentation by Lake Oswego resident Robert J. Jordan. Jordan's presentation is titled "The First 36 Hours of Sept. 11, 2001: Inside the FBI and the DC Beltway, One Agent's Personal Experience."
The presentation is offered in observance of Patriot Day, held in the United States each Sept. 11 in memory of those people killed in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Jordan is a former FBI agent, and also served as the assistant director of the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility.
