Oct. 22 – Mike Shuster – “Iran in Crisis” Global Security Seminar

Since June Iran has experienced a political crisis unlike anything it has gone through since the Islamic Revolution of 1978-79. Millions of people challenged the election results that handed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a second term. The very legitimacy of the Iranian government continues to face serious challenges. Then in September came news of the discovery of a secret uranium enrichment facility under construction, leading to a new set of foreign policy challenges for the Iranian regime. Mike Shuster was in Iran for the presidential election and its aftermath and he has covered the Iran nuclear issue for years.
