Rethinking Relations with Iran and Turkey


kinzer-thumbresetHour 1

The flotilla raid by the Israeli Navy last month highlighted growing tensions in the Middle East and the delicate balancing act the United States is playing between nations there. Former New York Times foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer thinks it’s time for the United States to reexamine our relations in the Middle East and consider some new partners. In his book Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America’s Future, he argues that the U.S. should work on its relationship with Iran and Turkey, two Muslim countries that share many of our democratic values. We’ll talk to Kinzer about U.S. relations with Iran and Turkey and the challenges in the Middle East.
