The US and Iran Finally Talk about Iraq

Hosted by

After nearly three decades of formal silence, representatives from the US and Iran met in Baghdad yesterday and agreed on the need for a stable Iraq.  There were many issues that were not on the table, including Iran's continued defiance of the international community with its nuclear program. There is also the question of US-Iranian citizens who have been detained during visits to their home country and were today charged with espionage.  Guest host Sara Terry explores Iran's agenda in the Middle East and US response to it.
