A New Assessment of Iranian President Ahmadinejad

Hosted by

With Iran, the US and countries from the European Union scheduled to resume talks this month, Hillary Clinton has asked Arab countries to help prevent the development of nuclear weapons. Meantime, lost in the furor of Saturday's shootings in Tucson, WikiLeaks has released cables suggesting that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not the hard-liner he seems to be but a "progressive reformer" stymied by more conservative factions. That's according to Reza Aslan, Professor at UC Riverside, member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
