USC professor Muhammad Sahimi returns to the show to discuss his latest article “Deconstructing Neoconservatives’ Manifesto for War With Iran.” Sahimi debunks the misinformation and lies being spread by John Bolton and other neoconservatives about the Iran Deal, explains in detail the steps Iran has taken to ease tensions with the United States, and lists the many hypocrisies of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Sahimi hammers home the fact that, should the U.S. void the Iran Deal, no country in the future will have reason to trust that the United States will live up to its word in its international agreements. Sahimi and Scott then discuss Iran’s role (or lack thereof) in Yemen and finish with Sahimi documenting the history of the Iranian terrorist group MEK and its flirtation with prominent U.S. Congressmen and Senators.

Muhammad Sahimi is the NIOC Chair in petroleum engineering at the University of Southern California and a contributor at Antiwar.com and the Huffington Post.
