It's funny cause I was just about to write a rather lengthy post on Iran per Reza Aslan's persepective but the site will showcase Aslan's speech he gave about Iran while he was here for the Faulkner society event. It's broken up into 5 segments (video) but its worth every second you spend on it if you really want to understand the dynamics of the Iranian political climate.
There is so much misinformation and misunderstanding in regards to Iran and their role in the Middle East and the world stage, this video segment will go a long way to providing a better understanding of what is really going on in the country.
After his presentation, I interviewed him about his connections to New Orleans (he has a house in the FQ)....he's a true Nawlin's fan.
Check it out...and congratulations to HB for getting the plane off the ground.
