Antiwar Radio: Muhammad Sahimi

Muhammad Sahimi, Professor of Chemical Engineering and political columnist on Iran issues, discusses his article “The IAEA Report on Iran’s Nuclear Program: Alarming or Hyped;” recycling the old “smoking laptop” documents into new allegations against Iran; debunking the story about a Russian nuclear scientist who supposedly helped Iran with nuclear weapons; leaving Iranians to form their own opposition parties without foreign interference; why David Albright won’t give up the Iran-propaganda business and get an honest job; how the 2007 and 2011 NIEs contradict IAEA claims about Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities; the “Bolton plan” of pestering Iran until they withdraw from the NPT – so a war can begin; and Iran’s long history of pragmatic foreign policy decisions, including cooperating with the US and Israel in various circumstances.
