Talkin' Détente with Scott Horton
Capping off a surprising and historic week in Iran-U.S. relations, this weekend I spoke with Scott Horton of AntiWar Radio and the aptly-named Scott Horton Show to discuss the potential for real diplomacy and possible rapprochement between the two nations after 34 years.
In addition to covering the strikingly rapid progress toward a mutually beneficial nuclear deal, Scott and I talked about why the United States must recognize Iran's inalienable right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy, Obama's precedent-setting phone call to Rouhani – the first direct presidential contact since 1979, and why U.S. airstrikes on Syria appear to be off the table.
