Episode Summary

EDIT
Uncommon Knowledge: Robert Baer and Victor Davis Hanson
AIRED:
Does Iran possess the ability to produce nuclear weapons? Both Bob Baer and Victor Hanson agree that it does. On the questions that flow from this assertion, agreement is more difficult to find. What does Iran hope to accomplish by developing the bomb? Can the United States live with a nuclear Iran? Can Israel? Israeli Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh in an October interview asserted "If no crippling sanctions are in place by Christmas, Israel will strike...if we are left alone, we will act alone."Does Israel possess the ability to destroy the Iranian nuclear program?With each month bringing another deception and diversion from Iran, what can the United States do to prevent a conflagration in the Middle East?A classicist and military historian, Victor Davis Hanson is Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. He is the author of many books, including A War Like No Other: How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War. Robert Baer spent twenty years in the Central Intelligence Agency as a field officer covering the Middle East. Mr. Baer is now a journalist and author. His latest book is The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower.moreless
