The US and Iran: A difficult history

Washington National Cathedral hosted a panel discussion on the U. S.–Iranian relationship earlier this week. The Web cast is now available.

The panel, moderated by Congressman Wayne T. Gilchrist, (R-MD), featured: Bruce Laingen, former Iran hostage and State Department official; Stephen Kinzer, former New York Times bureau chief and author of All the Shah’s Men; Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council and author of Treacherous Alliance: the Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States and Dr. Abbas Amanat, Iran scholar, professor of history at Yale University and author of In Search of Modern Iran: Authority, Nationhood, and Culture.

It is a two-hour presentation, and you can safely skip the first 15 minutes.
