Rep. James McGovern and Just Foreign Policy delivered to Members of Congress All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror by award-winning journalist and former New York Times reporter Stephen Kinzer.
In a letter to his colleagues that accompanied the book Rep. McGovern asks, "Is there a way where we can repair the damage of the past? Create new possibilities for resolving our conflicts with Iran? Find interests in common? Maybe even create a partner rather than an adversary?"
Iran stands as one of the greatest challenges that President Obama will face. How should the Iranian challenge be approached? What should diplomacy with Iran look like? Can President Obama succeed where others have failed?
Former U.S. ambassadors Thomas Pickering and James F. Dobbins along with 17 of the foremost experts on Iran have come together to produce a groundbreaking report offering comprehensive recommendations on engaging Iran.
The Joint Experts Statement on Iran outlines a five-step strategy for dealing successfully with Iran and clearing away misconceptions that have driven the failed policies of the past.
The statement was released on Tuesday, November 18 in Washington, DC at an event co-sponsored by Senator Carper and Senator Specter.
