Former Iranian President to Visit US

Hosted by

Despite growing tension with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Bush Administration has issued a visa to former President Mohammad Khatami. Though he no longer speaks for Iran, Khatami's two-week visit will demonstrate America's tradition of free speech--which does not exist in Iran itself. How long will he be here? Who will he see? What's the reaction of Iranians who fled their country to live in the US? Shaul Bakhash is a former journalist who left Iran in 1980.
