Our Man in Tehran
Thursday, January 20, 2011
Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor talks about his involvement with the rescue missions to free the hostages in Iran in 1981. His work as the “de facto CIA station chief” has just recently been declassified. He is the subject of Our Man in Tehran: The True Story Behind the Secret Mission to Save Six Americans during the Iran Hostage Crisis and the Foreign Ambassador Who Worked with the CIA to Bring Them Home, written by Robert Wright, which looks at pre-revolutionary Iran, the hostage crisis, and Taylor’s role in freeing the hostages.
