The Heat: U.S.-Iran Tensions

The Heat

Relations between the United States and Iran have soured significantly during the four years of the Trump Administration.

The recent assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist, that Iran has blamed on Israel with possible involvement from the U.S., has made the situation much worse.

To discuss:

  • Mohammad Marandi is Chair of American Studies at the University of Tehran
  • Barbara Slavin is Director and Nonresident Senior Fellow, Future of Iran Initiative, Atlantic Council
  • Mitchell Barak is an Israeli pollster and political analyst in Jerusalem
  • Edmund Ghareeb is a Middle East scholar and analyst.
