For today’s episode, Allen gets updated on US–Iran relations and the history and current status of the Iran nuclear deal with Scott Ritter, author of Dealbreaker: Donald Trump and the Unmaking of the Iran Nuclear Agreement.
Scott Ritter is a former Marine intelligence officer who, as a chief inspector for the United Nations in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, led the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. As a result, he became a vocal critic of the United States’ decision to go to war with Iraq. He has since turned his attention to Iran’s nuclear program and US–Iran relations. Ritter is the author of eight books, most recently Dealbreaker: Donald Trump and the Unmaking of the Iran Nuclear Agreement (Clarity Press, 2018).
