The Iran nuclear negotiations are going down to the wire. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry held nuclear talks in Montreux, Switzerland this week while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress about his distrust of Iran. Should the US negotiate with Iran? Are Iranians willing to compromise? Robin Wright says a deal with Iran "may not be perfect but it may be far better than the alternative." What is hiding in Hillary Clinton's State Department emails? The former Secretary of State used a private email account and server to send email during that time, rendering them unsearchable. Is this a problem? Bob Scheer questions why the Democratic Party assumes she will be the next presidential candidate. "It's an act of desperation." David Frum says more disturbing is the incredible amount of unregulated money, (a quarter of a billion dollars,) raised by the Clinton Foundation that is presumably allowing access to a past president and potential future president. "It's unprecedented, it's staggering, it's post-Soviet." On Wednesday, the Department of Justice released a report on Ferguson, Missouri showing systematic racial abuse in their law enforcement and legal systems.
