US and Iran, Face-to-Face for the First Time in 30 Years

Hosted by

In Geneva tomorrow, the United States will sit down for direct negotiations with Iran for the first time in three decades. The US, France, Britain, China, Russia and Germany will push for greater transparency on Iran's nuclear program, and threaten sanctions if President Ahmadinejad refuses to cooperate. What can the West hope to achieve at the talks? Will Russia and China agree to stepping up the pressure on Iran? Also, an update on the earthquakes and tsunami that have devastated Samoa, and the President turns lobbyist. Barack Obama himself will make a last-minute pitch for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Sara Terry guest hosts this rebroadcast of today's To the Point.
