This interview is from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of December 3rd, available here.
Hillary Mann Leverett, former State Department official and co-founder of The Race For Iran, discusses Obama’s campaign rhetoric about diplomatic engagement with enemy states and his subsequent appointment of advisers with contrary views; WikiLeaks cables that clearly show the duplicity of Obama’s dealings with Iran; how the 3-party enriched uranium swap deal was deliberately sabotaged — in part by the US rebuff of Turkey’s mediation efforts — in order to get support for new Iran sanctions; how Iran’s nuclear program is used to check its rise as a regional power — which is the primary US concern; how the Iraq invasion shifted the balance of Mideast power away from autocratic US allies; and the evidence that Islamic countries have no problem putting their national interests ahead of religious concerns.
