Gareth Porter is an award-winning independent journalist and historian.
This is the fifth part in a series of interviews on Porter’s new bookÂ Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare. Porter discusses the blown opportunity to reconcile with Iran after 9/11 and work together against the al-Qaeda and Taliban common enemies; the incredibly naive, magical thinking of the neocon gang that planned and executed the Iraq invasion/occupation; Iran’s doomed-to-failure nuclear negotiations with the EU3; John Bolton’s game plan to make Iran quit the NPT and throw out IAEA inspectors in disgust; and how US pressure counter-productively turned Iran’s nuclear program into a source of nationalistic pride for Iranians.
