Is Iran Next?

Hosted by
An article in the current issue of The New Yorker magazine has raised questions about whether the Bush Administration has launched covert military intelligence-gathering operations in Iran. The article by investigative reporter Seymour Hersh lays out some fundamental restructuring of the way intelligence operations are carried out. Early in his first term, President Bush designated Iran as part of the Axis of Evil in his global war on terrorism. Is the Pentagon trying to side-step Congressional oversight? What role is the CIA playing? What are the implications of any such US actions for long-term stability in the volatile Middle East? Guest host Sara Terry explores this possible next stop in the war on terror with Middle East scholars, human rights advocates and Pulitzer Prize winning investigative author Seymour Hersh. (This segment was originally earlier today on To the Point.)
