Chances are, none of us has really gotten over 9/11. It changed our collective psyche ... our foreign policy ... our law enforcement ... our world.

And yet few of us have lived with 9/11 as constantly as have the senior statesmen who were charged with the task of finding out what happened, and why ... and what should happen next: the 9/11 Commission.

The enormity of its task was really spelled out in the official title, The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. At its helm, former Gov. Tom Kean, a Republican, as Chair ... former Congressman Lee Hamilton, a Democrat, vice chair. But, from the start, Kean made clear it was to be a partnership. They would work together and lead together. Their report became a surprise bestseller, and even made the short list for the National Book Award.

So when he was named this year's Clifford Case Professor of Public Affairs at the Eagleton Institute of Politics here at Rutgers, Hamilton ... and Kean ... also spent some time with Due Process at the Rutgers iTV Studio .

On this Due Process special, Raymond Brown has the rare opportunity to engage them in some surprisingly candid conversation. Kean and Hamilton and some controversial ideas - from the threats to civil liberties post-9/11 to government assassination of a U.S. citizen.
