Trita Parsi (@tparsi), author of "Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy," joins us to discuss the US's recent behavior toward Iran. What was the Iran Deal and how much bad faith exists on the American side of it? How does the current antagonism to Iran compare to the lead up to the Iraq War? Why the idea Iran is an "existential threat" to Israel and Saudi Arabia is ludicrous. Why Israel is really afraid of a "normalized" Iran. The true shame the Iran Deal wasn't greeted with the warmth it should have been.
