Iran in American Politics


On March 27, the Center hosted a high-profile panel discussion on how Iran and the ongoing crises in the Middle East have influenced U.S. politics. David Rothkopf, CEO of The FP Group and a former senior Department of Commerce official in the Clinton administration, and Dov Zakheim, Vice-Chair of the Center and a former top Department of Defense official in the Bush administration, discussed a potential nuclear agreement with Iran, its potential impact on U.S. regional allies, and how foreign policy may affect the 2016 presidential campaign. The event was moderated by TNI editor Jacob Heilbrunn and a rebroadcast of the event is available on C-SPAN.
