5/16/18 Brett Wilkins on importance of History, not Hysteria, of U.S.-Iran Relations

Brett Wilkins, the editor-at-large for U.S. news at Digital Journal joins Scott to discuss his latest articles, “The Dark Side of Israeli Independence,” and “To Understand Iran, Try History, Not Hysteria.” Scott and Wilkins discuss the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, the Iran-Iraq War, and the utter ignorance most Americans, fed by media manipulations, have towards Iran. Wilkins then runs through the many acts of aggression the United States has taken against Iran, including the release of the Stuxnet virus, as documented by director Alex Gibney in his documentary Zero Days.
