06/06/11 – Hillary Mann Leverett – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jun 6, 2011 | Interviews

Hillary Mann Leverett, former State Department official and co-founder of The Race For Iran, discusses her article “Misrepresenting the Iran-Al-Qa’ida ‘Connection;’” how US hardball diplomacy with Iran squandered an opportunity to acquire al-Qaeda’s “next bin Laden” Saif al-Adel; why the US protected the MEK even though the group was on the State Department’s terrorism list and fought with Saddam’s regime against US troops in Iraq; Iran’s cooperation with the US on terrorism issues (both countries had grievances against al-Qaeda), including official talks between 2001-03; Iran’s problems repatriating Egyptians and bin Laden family members capturing after fleeing Afghanistan; and how the US media misleads Americans into believing Iran supports al-Qaeda.
