The Iran Problem: Hoover Institution discussion with Robert Baer and Victor Hanson

On October 20, 2009, former CIA case officer Robert Baer and war historian Victor Hanson sat down with the Hoover Institution's Peter Robinson for an episode of Uncommon Knowledge starkly titled 'The Iran Problem.' The program revolved around recent events in Iran, the country's nuclear program, and possible outcomes of the nuclear crisis.

The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, one of the preeminent think tanks in the United States, is based at Stanford University.

The program's inclusion in this bog should in no way be interpreted as an endorsement. I find some assertions by the participants to be questionable.

Baer's latest book, 'The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower,' was published in 2008.
