Backstory: Iran

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

This month’s Backstory will look at our complex relationship with Iran. Just this week, a new round of negotiations about Iraq was announced and Iranian-American scholars who are being detained appeared on Iranian state television. We will also look at Iran’s nuclear program, statements from the Bush Administration about Iran’s role in the chaos in Iraq, and whether regime change is even a possibility. We’ll be joined by Peter David, Foreign Editor of the Economist. He has edited a special report in the current issue of the Economist.
