Iran: Still in the Crosshairs. Who might pull the trigger? And when?
A conversation with ALI FERDOWSI, Prof. of Political Science, Notre Dame de Namur Univ., Native of Iran
During recent confirmation hearings for Sec'y of Defense Chuck Hagel, the Senate Committee spent more time grilling Hagel about Iran and his possible support for an Israeli attack on that country than just about any other issue. The Senate is now considering a bill telling the President to do just that: provide military support to an Israeli attack. At the same time, the Administration continues to insist that “all options are on the table”, including a U.S. attack. While in Iran, elections to replace Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will take place in June. In other words, this is a very critical period.
