Host Carol Castiel talks with Jay Solomon, Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, about his new book, “The Iran Wars: Spy Games, Bank Battles and the Secret Deals that Reshaped the Middle East.” Solomon’s gripping book, based on extensive reporting and interviews with key players in the decades long US-Iranian conflict, illustrates the challenge posed by Iran – whether its support of terrorism or its pursuit of a nuclear program – and how both the Bush and Obama administrations grappled with the threat. While the Bush Administration inadvertently strengthened Iran through the US-led invasion of Iraq, it remains to be seen if the landmark nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration will in fact restrain Iran’s nuclear ambitions over the next 15 years, much less lead to a broader rapprochement with the West.
